Abstract : Document reviewed the integrated logistics support (ILS) planning for the Air Force's air-launched cruise missile (ALCM) and the related B-52 carrier aircraft modifications and identified problems which will inhibit the economy and effectiveness of logistics support for the systems. These problems were primarily caused by the program's concurrent development and production acquisition strategy, which was adopted to meet the required operational availability date for the ALCM.
