Focus Points Key Defense Budget Issues, Economic Impact Finding opportunity in 2012 and Beyond 2012 U.S. Defense Budget Drivers and Restraints, Requirements and Purchasing Trends Funding by Category and Military Component OCO Funding Industry Challenges, Market Attractiveness Competitive Overview Conclusions and Recommendations 3
  4. 4. Key Defense Budget Issues, Economic Impact• 6.6% decrease from 2011 request, but projected OCO requirements are overly optimistic• Base budget request maintain stability, 0.2% growth projected by DoD• Future Army and Marine Corps personnel reduction; expansion of Special Operations Forces• Need to repair, upgrade, replace worn out equipment understated• Ensuring medical care• Building alliances• Expanding C4ISR capabilities-emphasis shift to HUMINT and EO/IR/MS collection to PED• Reform acquisition business operations, use savings to reinvest• Economic Challenges, Federal Budget $3.7T, record deficits• Defense Budget is $670.90B or about 16.2% of the total• About 4.6% of GDP 4

Market Drivers and Restraints U.S. DoD 2012 Budget: Market Drivers and Restraints (U.S.), 2011-2016 HighDrivers Med Continuing combat Worn out equipment Both major political operations and Increasing use of and expanded ground parties seek continued nation building, COTS in all segments, force TO/TE’s drive high levels of defense SOF increases More European and growth spending APAC competitors Low Economic Challenges.

  6. 6. Requirements and Purchasing Trends Length of arrows indicate impact of the challenge Trends and Opportunities (U.S.), 2011-2016 U.S. DoD 2012 Budget: Low Medium HighRequirements All types of Human Intelligence capabilities, especially language and cultural expertise and training. Helicopters and pilots. Improved ground and sea mine detection and neutralization techniques and equipment including hand held devices Smaller, lighter, and lower power equipment of all types. Long lasting and reliable batteries. Lighter and stronger armor, hull and blast dispersion designs, and shock mitigation seats for vehicles of all types “Instilling a culture of savings,” at the Pentagon. Price matters now. The goal is to save at least $13.60 billion between 2012 and 2016 by cutting contractors, senior officials, and staffs. Save $178.00 billion through other “efficiencies” Consolidation of the defense intelligence community, and some logistics, maintenance, and public affairs organizations is expected. For serious future cuts RDT&E is the easiest politically and operationallyTrends To control costs due to expanding program requirements, engineering change orders to come from the highest DoD levels only. New Boeing KC-46A tanker will be the first test.

  10. 10. Industry Challenges U.S. DoD 2011 Budget: Impact of Top Industry Challenges (U.S.), 2010-2015 Length of arrows indicate impact of the challenge Low Medium High Changes to DoD auditing agency roles. Defense Contract Management Agency and Defense Contract Audit Agency have reduced staff and capability due to budget constraints. Some functions have become blurred, leading to late reports and and late contract awards DoD plans to eliminate more than 1,000 contractor jobs from 2012 to 2016, saving $6.0 billion. The Missile Defense Agency will have the most reductions in the near termChallenges Pressures and debate on the defense budget and operational capabilities. Congress and planners are starting to make difficult choices. DoD internal steps to streamline acquisition policy and procedures to save money. Realistic set requirements and shorter schedules to shorten development and field weapons faster Pentagon’s “Better Buying Power Initiative” puts greater emphasis on price. Price is now a priority in product and services negotiations. The impact of non traditional COTS suppliers is growing on both ad hoc and program of record applications Note: Length of arrow indicates relative impact Source: Frost & Sullivan

  15. 15. Conclusions and RecommendationsU.S. defense procurement and services in areas such as medical services, helicopters, missile defense, training,logistics, maintenance and C4ISR will expand through 2016. Army requirements for equipment reset are extremelyunderestimatedU.S. Defense budgets will remain stable through 2016. Worn out equipment will continue to support acquisition andservices spending, but expect fewer air and naval platforms. DoD is underestimating the continued need for OCOfunding that will be requiredThe trend towards “80%” COTS technology and service support solutions will accelerate along with pricesensitivity. This will allow more market participants, but there will be fewer “joint” contracts overall; resulting infurther consolidation by and among the large prime contractors and systems IntegratorsThe dominant defense firms will remain, though with increasing foreign competition and acquisition of mid-tiertechnology and service firms. European based companies will increasingly look to compete in the U.S. as theirdefense budgets shrink at a relatively fast rate. Global contractors will compete for partnerships and acquisitionsof small innovative firms that can quickly translate commercial success into military applications and market sharePartner with established prime contractors. They are always on the look-out for innovative technologies andservices that can save them internal development and management costs and help them meet contractrequirements on schedule and budget.Be relevant to ground and special operations forces. Products and services must meet stated operationalrequirements and enhance the counter insurgent/terror and nation building missions.
