Abstract : Our objective was to assess the uncertainties in the AH-64 program as production begins and the extent to which they are being addressed by the Department of Defense. In making our review, we analyzed test results, independent evaluations, intelligence reports, baseline cost estimates, planning documents, and other Defense and contractor documents. In conclusion we found that there are some remaining development, testing, and production readiness concerns which present a degree of production, cost, and schedule risk to the AH-64 program. Nevertheless, given that these potential problem areas are being addressed by the Department of Defense, they do not appear to pose an unacceptable risk at this time.
