Abstract : This instruction provides guidance and procedures for conducting Air Force LFT&E programs. In compliance with LFT&E legislation, the conduct of Air Force LFT&E is a subset of the overall LFT&E program that the Air Force normally accomplishes to satisfy LFT&E requirements to build survivable and lethal combat systems. Additionally, compliance with LFT&E legislation will generate additional test and reporting requirements over and above normal Air Force test and reporting requirements. This instruction explains these additional requirements. LFT&E legislation, Title 10, U.S.C. section 2366, chapter 139, contains LFT&E requirements for vulnerability and lethality of covered systems, major munitions programs, and product improvements (that significantly affect vulnerability or lethality) to covered systems and major munitions programs. Consult with the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) and Air Force General Counsel offices if necessary to determine whether a system, program, or product improvement is subject to the LFT&E legislation. Send inquiries and information requests on LFT & E legislation through standard Air Force chains of command. DoDI 5000.2, DoD 5000.2M, and Title 10 2366 U.S.C. chapter 139, appendix B, provide OSD guidance for implementation of the LFT&E legislation and outlines OSD requirements for detailed LFT&E plans. AFI 62-201, System Survivability, outlines the procedures for the life-cycle management of survivable Air Force systems.
