1 Mission Assurance for Unprecedented Missions Aegis Standard Missile-3 Terminal High Altitude Area Defense US Ground-Based Interceptor Forward-Based Radar With Adjunct Sensor Lt Gen (ret) Trey Obering USAF 24 Feb 2015 Sea-Based X- Band Radar

2 The BMD Environment North Korean Threat o o o o Long range TD-2 missile capable of reaching US territory in development Medium-Intermediate range missile using advanced propellants based on Russian SSN-6 capable of reaching Guam in development Demonstrated significantly improved accuracy in their SCUD and No Dong flight tests Issued statement suggesting they had assembled nuclear warheads Iranian Threat o o o o Cooperating aggressively with North Korea sharing technology Developing short, medium and intermediate range missiles Building a space launch capability Showing expertise in developing an indigenous solid propellant capability

3 The BMD Environment US Ballistic Missile Defense Operational Capability - No ability to defend against intermediate or long range missile threats - No sea-based missile defense capability - Limited land-based capability to defend against short to medium range threats to deployed forces and allies (Patriot) - US missile defense development severely limited by 1972 ABM Treaty with the Soviet Union until US withdrew in June 2002 US Ballistic Missile Defense Testing - Ground-based Midcourse Defense system had achieved 5 of 7 successful intercepts of long range targets (including 4 consecutive) since Aegis had achieved 3 of 3 successes against short to medium range targets Decision was made to deploy limited defensive capabilities beginning in Fielded operational prototypes for GMD (EKV) - Deployed very limited capabilities for sea-based (SM-3 Block 1)

4 Integrated Ballistic Missile Defense System Defense Support Program Boost Defense Phase Space Tracking and Surveillance System Predator Airborne Sensor Ascent Sea-Based Radars Midcourse Defense Phase Descent Forward-Based Radar With Adjunct Sensor Midcourse X-Band Radar Early Warning Radar Terminal Defense Phase Sea-Based Terminal Aegis Standard Missile-3 Command, Control, Battle Management & Communications NMCC Aegis Ashore USSTRATCOM Designated Lead Service: Ground-Based Midcourse Defense USNORTHCOM Army USPACOM Navy Terminal High Altitude Area Defense Patriot Advanced Capability-3 USEUCOM USCENTCOM Air Force TBD 4

5 BMDS Mission Assurance Overall Test Record - 66 of 82 (~ 80%) hit-to-kill intercept attempts have been successful since the integrated system began development in Includes Aegis BMD w/sm-3, Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD), Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD), and PATRIOT Advanced Capability-3-45 of 57 (~80%) hit-to-kill intercept attempts have been achieved for THAAD (11 of 11), Aegis BMD (26 of 32), and GMD (8 of 14) test programs since 2001 The majority of failure causes were mission assurance related to include: - Poor workmanship in test silo led to aborted interceptor launch - Improper configuration prevented launch of sea-based missile - Unapproved supplier configuration change led to KV failure - Quality escape in the production line led to KV sensor failure - Improper grounding scheme between booster and KV

6 Public Release 07-MDA-2336 (14 March07) Mission Assurance Philosophy The Four Aces

7 Authority Effective mission assurance requires empowerment from the highest level of organizational authority. - Mission assurance organization led by SES reporting to MDA Director speaks with Director s authority - Mission Assurance Provisions (MAP) and Mission Assurance Implementation Plans (MAIP) plans on contract - DCMA partnering to increase mission assurance footprint Authority To Say Stop!

8 Accountability Program offices and contractor community are held accountable for practices that impact mission success. - Accountability to the individual level (missile integrators, process owners) - Mission assurance reflected in award fee structures (Integrated Flight Tests 13c and 14) Accountability Drives The Culture

9 Access Effective mission assurance requires access to the highest organizational leadership, programs and supply chain - Direct access to the contractor executives - Direct access to program offices and contractors including subs MDA Assurance Representatives - Unfettered and unrestricted access to all Government and contractor operations, activities and documentation Director s access memo Direct Line And Unfettered Access

10 Action Effective mission assurance actions influence program execution and behavior in order to achieve mission success. - Government / Industry Partnerships Stakeholder initiatives for critical suppliers - Mission Assurance Audits Parts, Materials and Processes enhancements - Lessons Learned Road Shows (Chemical Systems Division, Integrated Flight Tests 13c and 14) Direct feedback at the highest industry level - Award Fee Decisions Effective mission assurance requires continual attention and resources

11 Mission Assurance Tools MDA CEO Days Lessons Learned Mission Assurance and Safety Audits MDA Assurance Provisions Supplier Roadmaps Government / Industry Partnerships Industry Stakeholder Initiatives MDA Advisories MDA Parts, Materials And Processes Plan DCMA QA Letter of Delegation QSMA Unfettered Access Mission Assurance Representatives

12 Summary Accountability, Authority, Access, Action are the four aces of mission assurance Focus on process rigor and attention to detail Use of independent review teams Attention To Mission Assurance Pays Off
