Abstract : The Defense Science Board Task Force on Concurrency and Risk of the F-22 Program was convened to respond to concerns raised in a Senate Armed Services Report (SASC Report 163-282, dated 14 June 1994.) The Committee requested that the Department of Defense address their concerns related to F-22 Program schedule concurrency. The terms of reference (TOR) for the Task Force from USD(A&T) contain three questions. The questions are: (1) Are there are any areas in the F-22 program of excessive concurrency? What is the risk in each area? (2) For any areas of identifiable high risk, are viable plans/options available that would mitigate the risk? (3) What conclusions regarding F-22 concurrency and risk can be drawn by comparisons to existing data (e.g., an ongoing IDA study) on previous fighter/combat aircraft?
