Abstract : Our TACAIR modernization plan flows from years of analysis, thought, and intensive debate. The analytical framework that supports this plan is both complex and rigorous. Each of the Services evaluate current and projected capabilities in the context of changing threats, policy guidance, and military strategy to identify deficiencies. Cost and performance trades are addressed to preserve an acceptable balance between risk and affordability. The Joint Requirements Oversight Council (JROC) has a role in shaping military requirements within the Department of Defense. These remarks will provide some background on the JROC itself, address its corresponding focus and processes and attempt to answer your specific questions on TACAIR.
