Welcome to the Vehicle and C4ISR Program Section on AeroWeb. This section covers DoD Spending
on major ground systems and C4ISR systems (JTRS, WIN-T and FCS) from FY 2011 to FY 2013 (starting October 1, 2012).
Below, you find a database of 15 DoD ground programs, including tanks, combat vehicles, and tactical vehicles.
For each program, you can access information about total DoD spending on that program in FY11, FY12, and FY13 as well as procurement spending, research expenditures, and the number of vehicles/systems purchased.
Our data tells you exactly how much was spent on each program, e.g. RDT&E expenses for the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV), # of Medium and Heavy Tactical Vehicles purchased etc. By clicking on a program below, you access that system's profile - giving you access to general information about the vehicle/system (specs, engine, weapons/armament, mission/role etc.) and DoD budget data downloads for each program (so you can see the official spending documentation to verify the accuracy of our data and access even more info).
Note that our data may not in all instances match the numbers in the official DoD Major Acquisition Program Data Book, mainly due to the fact that we also include spending on modifications (to provide a more accurate view of how much is spent on each system). Therefore, we are convinced that the data provided below is more extensive, more accurate and more detailed than what is published by the DoD.
In Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 (October 1, 2012 - September 30, 2013), the WIN-T and Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) programs (C4ISR) will receive the most funding followed by the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle. WIN-T is allocated $1.23 billion in FY13 funds, while the JTRS receives $960 million. In FY2013, among other models, the DoD procures 58 Stryker Vehicles, 1,471 Medium Tactical Vehicles, and 1,534 Heavy Tactical Vehicles.
Other top ground vehicle programs include the Manned Ground Vehicle (Future Combat Systems),
the Stryker armored vehicle, the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV),
the HMMWV (Humwee), M109 Paladin, M1 Abrams, Bradley Fighting Vehicle, and the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV),
which is intended to replace the HMMWV.
From FY13 the DoD will restructure the U.S. Army's Ground Combat Vehicle (GCV) program and the FMTV.
