Abstract : We are currently reviewing the Joint Tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) program, including (1) the Hunter UAV system; (2) a variant of the Hunter, referred to as the Maneuver system; and (3) another Hunter variant for shipboard use. These systems are expected to cost about $4.2 billion. We are issuing this interim report to bring to your attention certain aspects of the program status and the Joint Tactical UAV Project Office's proposed acquisition strategy for the Maneuver system that we believe will unnecessarily increase the Department of Defense's (DoD) risk on the program.
