There is about $103 million designated for
electronic warfare and electronic protection research in the President’s
Fiscal 2015 budget request, Air Force Research Laboratory head Maj. Gen.Thomas
Masiello told reporters Tuesday.
The nation’s nuclear deterrent is “the very
foundation” of US national security and the Defense Department’s leadership is
resolved to institute improvements to counter the “consistent lack of
investment and support” that has befallen the mission in recent years, said
Pentagon acquisition chief Frank Kendall on Wednesday.
aerospace leaders pleaded Tuesday for greater budget certainty, clarity of
requirements, and easing of export restrictions to help the industry get
through the current budget downturn.
