History has seen dramatic swings in development progress

what will make a difference Experience Leadership Technological Leap “ experience, i.e. the steady buildup and maintenance of expertise over time through constant learning by doing, is critical in the cost-effective design and development of successful military aircraft” RAND “The Cutting Edge” "The Skunk Works is a concentration of a few good people solving problems far in advance - and at a fraction of the cost - by applying the simplest, most straightforward methods possible to develop and produce new products." Kelly L. Johnson “ People who seem to have a new idea, have often just stopped having an old idea” “ Invention is a sudden cessation of stupidity” Edwin Land Progress

Experience

large marine vessels Operational requirements uniquely met by composites Available technology can meet steel production costs, while dramatically beating steel in life cycle costs and other performance improvements Whole system integration of primarily composite structure is key Demonstrations essential to progress: Europe way out in front

aerospace vehicles “ In the year 2054, the entire defense budget will purchase just one aircraft. This aircraft will have to be shared by the Air Force and the Navy 3 ½ days each per week except for leap year, when it will be made available to the Marines for the extra day” Norman R. Augustine Year # of Aircraft

DARPA IATA program JAST/ASTOVL 140 Composite Skins, Metallic Sub-Structure, Fastened Assy 65% Reduction in Production Costs 48% Reduction in Non-Rec Production Costs 33% Reduction in Weight (1621 lbs savings) 95% Composites (vs 30% in baseline) 111 Total Parts Commensurate LCC Savings IATA PSC 95% Composites, Fully Bonded Assy Recurring Production Costs: T100 Baseline IATA

taking experience to the next level Accept the fact that advanced composites ARE different Shift the paradigm to primarily composite structural systems rather than primarily metallic Build larger scale demonstrations more often Fly prototypes more often Build the capability to produce fewer aircraft of much greater diversity giving the warfighter the proper tools for their many jobs while rapidly building the experience base Collaborate , but have a powerful program leader and aggressively focused program and product requirements Adhere to timeless principles : e.g. Skunk Works Be BOLD!

Technological Leap

fuel efficiency as the next big leap Benefits of 5x improvement in fuel efficiency: Oil savings: U.S. potential = 8 Mbbl/day = 1 Saudi Arabia = 42 ANWARs World potential = 1 OPEC Lead a fast transition to a hydrogen economy Effective application of advanced materials, in one single act, improves: Expeditionary reaction time National security National independence of foreign oil Time on station of any vehicle Range and payload of any vehicle Radical reduction in logistical tails and fuel costs in-theatre Major strategic and tactical advantage for many years to come Local air quality, with global implications

Benefits of 5x improvement in fuel efficiency:

Oil savings:

U.S. potential = 8 Mbbl/day = 1 Saudi Arabia = 42 ANWARs

World potential = 1 OPEC

Lead a fast transition to a hydrogen economy

Effective application of advanced materials, in one single act, improves:

Expeditionary reaction time

National security

National independence of foreign oil

Time on station of any vehicle

Range and payload of any vehicle

Radical reduction in logistical tails and fuel costs in-theatre

Major strategic and tactical advantage for many years to come

Local air quality, with global implications
