                                Hearings

    The Subcommittee on Department of Defense Appropriations 
began hearings on the fiscal year 1999 budget request on 
February 25, 1998, and concluded them on May 20, 1998, after 12

representatives of the Department of Defense, other Federal 
agencies, representatives of organizations, and the public.

                          Summary of the Bill

    The Committee considered a total fiscal year 1999 budget 
request of $250,998,803,000 in new obligational authority for 
the military functions of the Department of Defense, excluding

                     classified program adjustments

    The Committee recommends adjustments to certain classified 
programs, as explained in the classified annex to the 
Committee's report.

                 Government Performance and Results Act

    The Committee has closely examined the Department's 
performance plan for fiscal year 1999, and considered the 
extensive review undertaken by the General Accounting Office 
[GAO] to evaluate the compliance of the plan with the Results 
Act. The Committee commends the evaluation and recommendations 
presented by GAO, and anticipates the ongoing participation of 
GAO in monitoring the Department's compliance and progress 
under the Results Act.
    The Department of Defense faces many external factors, 
related to unpredictable international security challenges, 
that make specific, identifiable, and quantifiable data 
difficult to project and calculate. The Department's six 
strategic goals define broad mission priorities, but these 
parameters do not satisfy the criteria specified in the Results 
Act as performance goals. To better enable Congress and OMB to 
monitor the Department's compliance with the Results Act, the 
Committee recommends that the Secretary provide both mission 
and functional operational performance goals in the 
Department's fiscal year 2000 performance plan.
    Specifically, the Department should establish performance 
goals for recruiting and retention of military personnel, depot 
financial and logistics performance, real property maintenance, 
training priorities, unit readiness, weapons system testing, 
and contractor cost performance on procurement and research and 
development programs. These factors will present to the 
Congress a more specific and genuine measure of the 
effectiveness of Department of Defense programs and budget 
priorities.
    The defense reform initiative [DRI], led by the Deputy 
Secretary of Defense, should be an effective engine within the 
Department to utilize the Results Act to achieve the cost-
saving efficiencies and improvements described by the Secretary 
in testimony before the Committee. The performance plan for 
fiscal year 2000 should address DRI objectives for that year, 
and establish measures to assess DRI accomplishments. These 
revised performance goals and DRI proposals should accompany 
the fiscal year 2000 budget request to the Congress.
    The fiscal year 1999 performance plan was only of marginal 
benefit to the Congress, and limited in scope. The adjustments 
proposed for fiscal year 2000 will enhance the value of this 
plan to the Congress, and ensure improved compliance by the 
Department with the Results Act.

                   Compliance With 302(b) Allocation

    The Appropriations Committee conformed fully to the budget 
resolution for defense spending in its 302(b) allocation. This 
allocation divided the budget authority and outlays among the 
subcommittees with jurisdiction over discretionary spending. 
The Defense Subcommittee has the greatest share of defense 
spending. In this recommended bill, the Appropriations 
Committee has remained within the tight constraints of its 
302(b) allocation for defense.

    Pay raise.--The President's fiscal year 1999 budget request 
recommends a 3.1-percent pay raise for military personnel. The 
Committee supports this pay increase to help ensure that 
military compensation remains attractive and competitive with 
private sector pay, and that the military services continue to 
attract and retain highly qualified volunteers. This increase 
is effective January 1, 1999.
    Global military force policy [GMFP].--The global military 
force policy is a Department of Defense force management tool 
which allows the Secretary of Defense, and Chairman of the 
Joint Chiefs of Staff to balance the requirements of 
warfighting commanders in chief [CINC's] with limited service 
resources. CINC's require certain limited assets with unique 
mission capabilities to support ongoing operations. These 
assets, referred to as low density-high demand [LDHD], are 
stressed by a consistently high operational tempo.
    The Committee recognizes the Department's day-to-day 
efforts to balance limited assets against high CINC demand. 
Nevertheless, a pattern of LDHD assets stressed over the long 
term, suggests a mismatch between force structure and CINC 
requirements. Accordingly, the Committee requires the following 
report: not later than 90 days from enactment of this bill, the 
Secretary of Defense shall submit a report to the defense 
committees which describes necessary measures to modify the 
force structure of LDHD units, to include manpower and 
equipment. In identifying these force structure changes, the 
report shall describe cost savings to be found from within 
existing end strength levels of units less relevant to CINC 
demands, or warfighting needs. The report shall also describe 
any assets from each of the services and components which does 
not appear on the LDHD list, yet may substitute for LDHD 
assets. The Secretary may also provide any proposals for 
expanding or converting reserve component force structure to 
augment LDHD assets.
    Advance pay policy change.--The 1999 budget request 
contained $301,000,000 to implement a DOD policy change for 
obligation of funds for advance pay. After consultation with 
the Department of Defense, and the Senate authorization 
committee, the Committee concludes that these funds, and the 
policy change, are not required.

                   operation and maintenance overview

    Appropriations under this title finance the cost of 
operating and maintaining U.S. Armed Forces, including Guard 
and Reserve components and Department of Defense agencies. 
These funds are used to purchase fuel and spare parts for 
training activities, pay civilian personnel, purchase supplies, 
equipment and service contracts for repairing weapons systems 
and facilities, and finance other personnel support programs.

             servicewide operation and maintenance programs

                     o&m; support of military forces

                       real property maintenance

    In fiscal year 1998, the Committee added $724,620,000 to 
assist in reducing the extensive backlog of real property 
maintenance, with $360,000,000 provided in the ``Quality of 
life enhancements, defense'' account for the repair and 
improvement of housing, barracks, and dining facilities 
throughout the Department of Defense.
    This year, the Committee provides an additional 
$264,000,000, but has distributed these funds among the 
individual service operation and maintenance accounts for 
transfer into the ``Quality of life enhancements, defense'' 
account. As was the case with this account in preceding years, 
these funds will remain available for 2 years, until September 
30, 2000, and shall be used only for the maintenance and repair 
of barracks, dormitories or other personnel support facilities 
within the United States and its territories. The Committee 
directs each service Secretary to provide a report to the 
congressional defense committees on all additional projects to 
be funded prior to any obligation of funds or contract awards, 
and no later than March 15, 1999. This report shall include 
project description and location, estimated cost, and projected 
commencement and completion dates.

                    contingency operations mwr fund

    The Committee provides $50,000,000 in this new account to 
fund shortfalls in the morale, welfare, and recreational 
services available to troops deployed in support of contingency 
operations and their families, and to address retention and 
reenlistment shortfalls in critical military occupational 
specialties.

                    pentagon renovaton transfer fund

    The Committee has consolidated the funding for the 
Pentagon's ongoing renovation from the service and defensewide 
operation and maintenance accounts into a separate fund within 
title II. The total transferred to this new account from the 
Washington Headquarters Service includes the renovation 
payments attributed to the BMDO, DIA, NSA, NIMA, and DOHA. The 
Committee directs the Department of Defense to utilize this 
fund for future budget request submissions to the Congress, 
with a delineation of contributions by department and 
organization.

                   nato sustainment transfer account

    The Committee continues to harbor significant concerns 
regarding the actual costs of expanding and maintaining the 
NATO alliance. Over the months preceding the ratification vote 
on NATO expansion, the Committee's efforts to determine past 
expenditure levels and historical data on U.S. costs in support 
of NATO often resulted in the receipt of inconsistent or 
incomplete data. In an effort to bring greater visibility to 
the important contribution that the United States makes to the 
NATO alliance, the Committee directs the Secretary of Defense 
to establish a separate ``NATO sustainment transfer'' account 
and to move all NATO and NATO-related programs and funding into 
this account in future budget requests, commencing in fiscal 
year 2000.

                        fact-of-life adjustments

                         flying hour shortfalls

    The Committee has provided additional funds in the Navy and 
Air Force operation and maintenance accounts to mitigate the 
impact of identified shortfalls in flying hour funding.

                      foreign currency fluctuation

    The Committee has made adjustments to the accounts in this 
title which reflect projected savings as a result of favorable 
currency rate changes, as authorized in the Senate Armed 
Services Committee Report 105-189.

                       fuel pricing differential

    The Senate Armed Services Committee examined the impact of 
the current reduced prices for oil and fuel and noted that 
significant savings can be expected in fiscal year 1999 as a 
result of these changes. In light of a continuing downward 
trend in these prices, the Committee has reduced the operation 
and maintenance accounts to reflect an expected savings of 
$454,000,000.

                   civilian personnel underexecution

    The Committee has directed reductions in the service and 
defensewide operation and maintenance accounts in concert with 
the action taken in Senate Armed Services Committee Report 105-
189.

                defense acquisition university transfer

    The Committee supports the Department of Defense decision 
to move the Defense Acquisition University to the network of 
National Defense University institutions and expects that this 
consolidation will reap significant savings and efficiencies as 
a result of shared infrastructure, resources, and technical 
support. Subsequently, the Committee reduces the total amount 
appropriated by $8,500,000.

                    SUMMARY OF COMMITTEE ADJUSTMENTS

    Allocations of the Committee adjustments are made for each 
operation and maintenance, Army funding category identified in 
the Department's O-1 submission. A table showing the budget 
estimate, Committee adjustment, and recommended funding level 
by O-1 category is provided below. Proposed transfers of funds 
within budget activity funding categories in excess of 
$15,000,000 are subject to standard reprogramming procedures.

                         COMMITTEE ADJUSTMENTS

    Ammunition management.--The Committee commends the 
Department of the Army for its efforts to increase funding for 
ammunition care and maintenance in order to reduce the growing 
backlog developing in conventional munitions sustainment. In 
order to support this effort, the Committee has raised the 
legislated floor to $375,000,000 in fiscal year 1999.
    Fort Chaffee Maneuver Training Center.--The Committee 
recognizes that the Fort Chaffee Maneuver Training Center has 
received heavy usage by both Active and Reserve component units 
since its transfer to the Arkansas National Guard. However, the 
post's long-term viability as a training site is reduced by the 
deteriorating condition of many of its facilities. Therefore, 
the Committee provides $1,000,000 to commence the conversion of 
one of Fort Chaffee's old World War II known distance ranges 
into a remote electronic target system range.
    Domestic preparedness sustainment training.--The Committee 
recognizes the need to provide first responders with long-term 
training, refresher training, and realistic exercises to ensure 
proper preparation for chemical and biological incidents and 
terrorism. The Committee directs the Army to establish a 
Domestic Preparedness Sustainment Training Center in existing 
facilities at the Pine Bluff Arsenal, AR, and further directs 
that the Department of Defense work with the Department of 
Justice and other Federal agencies to incorporate the Domestic 
Preparedness Sustainment Training Center and Pine Bluff 
Arsenal's other unique research, laboratory, and production 
capabilities into national domestic preparedness planning.
    Advanced local emergency response team.--The U.S. Army 
Soldiers and Chemical Biological Command currently provides 
response training to the threat of urban terrorism to 120 
cities nationwide. An advanced local emergency response team 
[ALERT] could demonstrate the feasibility of the current 
training program and provide feedback to the Army for potential 
training modifications. The Committee provides $1,000,000 to 
initiate a pilot program in Charlotte, NC. These funds will 
support the purchase of equipment, support services, 
administrative services, and training.
    AIM XXI.--The Committee has fully funded the Army's depot 
maintenance requirements and directs the Army to give priority 
to the AIM XXI Program.
    Rotary wing aircraft sustainment project.--The Committee 
directs that $3,500,000 may be used for the rotary wing 
aircraft sustainment project at the Corpus Christi Army Depot.
    Air battle captain.--The Committee recommends $1,000,000 
for the Air Battle Captain Program and directs the Army to 
recruit no fewer than 15 ROTC cadets during fiscal year 1999. 
Within this amount, the Committee includes $200,000 
specifically for air battle captain recruitment efforts. The 
Committee is aware that the Army has neglected to recruit 
students for this program and is concerned that this has 
affected the cost effectiveness of the program.
    Hospital renovation.--The Committee recommends that, from 
within the funds allocated for Army maintenance of real 
property, $10,000,000 shall be made available only for 
infrastructure repairs at the Fitzsimmons Army Hospital.
    Walla Walla, WA.--This Committee is aware of the 
longstanding concern regarding deteriorating structures on the 
former Department of Defense site in Walla Walla, WA, which 
have most recently served as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' 
district headquarters. Previous Congresses have appropriated 
funds for studies, engineering, and bid documents. The 
Committee urges the Secretary to proceed with the demolition 
project.
    Environmental cleanup at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal, CO.--
The Rocky Mountain Arsenal [RMA] has been the focus of an 
aggressive soil and ground water contamination cleanup program 
since the mid-1980's. The contamination is the result of two 
decades of onsite disposal of hazardous waste associated with 
manufacturing and testing chemical agents and other munitions. 
In addition, portions of the arsenal were leased to Shell Oil 
for the manufacture of pesticides from 1952 to 1987.
    In 1987, RMA was listed on the National Priority List 
[NPL], with the Department of the Army placed in charge of the 
cleanup. The Army and Shell have spent nearly $1,000,000,000 to 
date for cleanup activities at RMA. The actual implementation 
of the remedy is moving forward. The dialog between the parties 
and regulators appears to be productive and the community is 
the beneficiary of oversight by the State of Colorado, U.S. 
Environmental Protection Agency, and tri-county health 
department. The RMA cleanup has become a model for Federal, 
State, and local cooperation when implementing cleanup 
projects, and changes and improvements have already been seen 
by all the parties. The Committee continues to support the RMA 
cleanup project and urges the Department of the Army to ensure 
that this critical cleanup is completed in a timely manner.

                    Operation and Maintenance, Navy

Appropriations, 1998.................................... $21,617,766,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................  21,877,202,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of 
$21,813,315,000. This is $63,887,000 below the budget estimate.

                    SUMMARY OF COMMITTEE ADJUSTMENTS

    Allocations of the Committee adjustments are made for each 
operation and maintenance, Navy funding category identified in 
the Department's O-1 submission. A table showing the budget 
estimate, Committee adjustment, and recommended funding level 
by O-1 category is provided below. Proposed transfers of funds 
within budget activity funding categories in excess of 
$15,000,000 are subject to standard reprogramming procedures.

                         COMMITTEE ADJUSTMENTS

                     O&M; SUPPORT OF MILITARY FORCES

    Barrow landfill.--Of the funds provided in this account, 
the Committee directs the Department of the Navy to provide 
$2,500,000 for costs associated with the closure of the Barrow 
landfill. The Department of Defense sited, developed, and 
managed this landfill for 31 years, with the Naval Arctic 
Research Laboratory located at Barrow as the primary user of 
the facility. The Committee urges the Department of Defense to 
work with the North Slope Borough in closing the landfill and 
determining continuing funding responsibilities. These funds 
should be provided to the appropriate local government entity.
    Shipyard Apprenticeship Program.--The Committee recommends 
an increase of $14,000,000 to establish a new Shipyard 
Apprenticeship Program at the public shipyards. The downsizing 
over the past decade at our Navy shipyards has increased the 
average age of the shipyard worker to nearly 45 years, and 
limited the ability of Navy managers to hire new apprentices. 
The Committee believes this matter requires immediate attention 
and directs that the Navy initiate a program within the next 90 
days to address the aging work force at all four public 
shipyards. Funds have been added to augment working capital 
funds and other resources to ensure that this program is not 
forced to compete with depot maintenance requirements. The 
Committee expects these funds shall only be used to hire new 
apprentices, and that the funding provided shall be in addition 
to any other resources requested in the budget for work force 
revitalization. The Committee directs the Navy to report to the 
Appropriations Committees by April 1, 1999, on the 
implementation of this program, by shipyard.
    Lift bridge repair.--From within the amounts provided for 
real property maintenance and minor construction, $17,500,000 
shall be available only for repair and refurbishment of the 
lift bridge providing access to the former Philadelphia Navy 
Shipyard.
    Shipyard infrastructure repairs.--The Committee recommends 
that within the funds allocated for Navy maintenance of real 
property, $15,000,000 shall be used only for infrastructure 
repairs at the Charleston Naval Shipyard.
    Pacific Missile Range facility [PMRF].--The Committee 
recommends $40,222,0000 for operations at PMRF, an increase of 
$6,000,000 above the budget, to account for shortfalls in the 
request. The amount recommended is $6,196,000 less than 
provided for fiscal year 1998. A consolidated contract for 
range and base operations is expected to generate significant 
savings in the cost of operations at the range in the coming 
year. The Committee expects that additional funding will be 
made available to support range and base operations 
requirements if contract costs exceed current expectations.

                Operation and Maintenance, Marine Corps

Appropriations, 1998....................................  $2,372,635,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................   2,523,703,000
Committee recommendation................................   2,576,190,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of 
$2,576,190,000. The recommendation is $52,487,000 above the 
budget request.

                    SUMMARY OF COMMITTEE ADJUSTMENTS

    Allocations of the Committee adjustments are made for each 
operation and maintenance, Marine Corps funding category 
identified in the Department's O-1 submission. A table showing 
the budget estimate, Committee adjustment, and recommended 
funding level by O-1 category is provided below. Proposed 
transfers of funds within budget activity funding categories in 
excess of $15,000,000 are subject to standard reprogramming 
procedures.

                     O&M; SUPPORT OF MILITARY FORCES

    Combat ranges.--Prior to obligating or expending any of the 
additional funds provided for combat training ranges, the 
Secretary of the Air Force shall provide a written report to 
the Senate Appropriations Committee detailing the plan for 
distribution of these funds to the various range facilities.
    B-52 attrition reserve aircraft.--The Committee directs 
that this funding be used to operate and maintain the current 
force structure of 94 B-52's and to continue standard 
maintenance and upgrades on the attrition reserve aircraft. 
Additionally, the Committee directs the Air Force to treat all 
94 B-52's now in the force structure as aircraft to be retained 
for the 6-year period beginning October 1, 1998.
    CINC support aircraft.--The Committee recognizes the 
challenges facing the Department due to the age, excessive 
support costs, and operational restrictions of the C-137 and C-
135 aircraft fleets. The Committee understands the Department 
has considered several options to address the lack of reliable, 
affordable, and appropriate aircraft assets to meet these 
requirements. Current mission needs and resources do not 
support dedicated, large, intercontinental support aircraft for 
each regional Commander in Chief [CINC]. The Committee 
especially rejects, and opposes any funding for the conversion 
of operational air refueling tanker aircraft for the CINC 
support mission.
    The Committee directs that the Deputy Secretary of Defense 
and the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs implement the 
consolidation of all existing CINC support aircraft into a 
centrally managed pool, dispersed to key geographic locations. 
These aircraft should be available to support all departmental 
missions and requirements, not reserved for the use of a single 
headquarters. Allocation of aircraft assets should be made on a 
mission priority basis, irrespective of regional location. This 
plan should be presented to the congressional defense 
committees not later than March 1, 1999.
    The Committee includes funds in the procurement title of 
this bill to purchase two new C-37A aircraft to immediately 
address the need for aircraft replacement. These smaller 
aircraft, with drastically lower operation and support costs, 
will better meet the mission requirement for CINC 
transportation. These aircraft should be modified to the 
minimum level, remaining fairly common with similar aircraft 
serving similar purposes in the commercial marketplace. This 
approach ensures that the Department can recover a portion of 
this investment if the aircraft are subsequently replaced, or 
if leasing of such support aircraft can be initiated.
    One of the new aircraft should be deployed to MacDill Air 
Force Base as part of the pool to support the Southern, 
Central, Special Operations Forces and Atlantic Commands. The 
second new aircraft should be deployed to Hickam Air Force Base 
as part of the pool to support the Pacific Command--including 
Korea, the Pacific Air Forces, the Pacific Fleet, and U.S. Army 
Pacific. The plan presented by the Deputy Secretary of Defense 
and the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs should address any 
additional requirement for replacement aircraft, and the 
deployment sites for the entire support fleet.
    C-130J schoolhouse training.--The Committee endorses the 
Air Force's decision to keep C-130 schoolhouse training 
centralized in the C-130 formal training unit [FTU] at Little 
Rock AFB, AR. Subsequently, the Committee directs the Air Force 
to examine the viability of basing C-130J's at Little Rock Air 
Force Base and implementing the C-130J schoolhouse training 
there and to report their findings to the Committee not later 
than February 1, 1999.
    Air Force Plant No. 34, Tulsa, OK.--The Committee commends 
the Department of the Air Force for the expeditious obligation 
of environmental cleanup funds for the ground contamination 
present at the facility as directed by the Committee in fiscal 
year 1998. The Committee, however, remains concerned about 
other environmental contamination present onsite, particularly 
in the above-ground structures. The Committee directs the 
Secretary of the Air Force to investigate these hazards and 
report on these risks to the congressional defense committees 
no later than March 1, 1999. The report should also include a 
detailed obligation schedule that fully addresses these 
concerns before the actual title transfer to the city of Tulsa.
    Radioactive iodine experimentation.--The Committee strongly 
encourages the Air Force to equitably and expeditiously resolve 
the pending claim filed on behalf of the Inupiat Eskimos who 
were subjected to radioactive iodine 131 experimentation by the 
Air Force in the mid-1950's. These Alaskan Natives were used as 
experimental subjects without informed consent by the Arctic 
Aeromedical Laboratory.

                        other air force programs

    Civil Air Patrol.--The Committee directs the Secretary of 
the Air Force to provide the following amounts for the Civil 
Air Patrol:

CAP operations:
    O&M.................................................;     $20,654,000
    Procurement.........................................       4,941,000
    Counternarcotics....................................       3,715,000

    The amounts delineated above are $10,037,000 above the 
amount requested by the Air Force for Civil Air Patrol 
requirements.
    The Committee understands that the Air Force has been 
reviewing the question of the impact, if any, of the Federal 
Grant and Cooperative Agreement Act of 1977 to the Air Force's 
funding of the Civil Air Patrol. The Committee directs the Air 
Force to discontinue its efforts to implement changes to 
funding policies and procedures for the Civil Air Patrol, 
including application of the Federal Grant and Cooperative 
Agreement Act of 1977, so Congress can fully review the impact 
of these proposed changes. The Committee further directs that 
the Air Force and the Civil Air Patrol submit a joint report on 
possible improvements to funding policies and procedures to the 
Committee no later than December 1, 1998.

                Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide

Appropriations, 1998.................................... $10,369,740,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................  10,750,601,000
Committee recommendation................................  10,259,231,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of 
$10,259,231,000. This is $491,370,000 below the budget 
estimate.

                    SUMMARY OF COMMITTEE ADJUSTMENTS

    Allocations of the Committee adjustments are made for each 
operation and maintenance, Defense-wide funding category 
identified in the Department's O-1 submission. A table showing 
the budget estimate, Committee adjustment, and recommended 
funding level by O-1 category is provided below. Proposed 
transfers of funds within budget activity funding categories in 
excess of $15,000,000 are subject to standard reprogramming 
procedures.

                         COMMITTEE ADJUSTMENTS

    Northern Edge Joint Training and Exercise Program.--The 
Committee provides $7,000,000 for the U.S. Pacific Command's 
Northern Edge Joint Training and Exercise Program. This 
exercise program supports a series of joint and combined 
military exercises and training in the north Pacific region. 
Training scenarios range from military operations other than 
war to large-scale theater warfare.
    Defense Threat Reduction and Treaty Compliance Agency.--The 
Committee acknowledges the need confirmed by the defense reform 
initiative [DRI] to reduce the significant overlap and 
duplication of effort by the numerous organizations which were 
recently consolidated into this new agency. However, the 
savings estimated by the Department is considered to be overly 
conservative, considering the substantial number of 
assimilations and functional transfers, and reduces funding by 
$27,400,000. The Committee has also reduced funding by 
$13,500,000 as a result of expected delays in treaty 
implementation and scheduled inspections.
    Procurement Technical Assistance Program [PTAP].--The 
Committee commends the Department for including the Procurement 
Technical Assistance Program funding in this year's budget 
request and subsequently provides full funding for this 
worthwhile initiative. The Committee directs that PTAP be 
designated as a separate special interest program, with written 
approval by the Appropriations Committees required prior to any 
below-threshold reprogramming from this line.
    Partnership for Peace Program.--The Committee notes that 
the budget submission for the Partnership for Peace Program has 
increased by more than 22 percent over the fiscal year 1998 
level. This growth is considered excessive, in light of the 
difficult funding choices being faced in the readiness accounts 
of the active forces. Of the funds recommended by the 
Committee, $3,000,000 has been provided for the PFP information 
management system [PIMS].

                         other defense programs

    Legacy Program.--The Committee provides $10,000,000 for 
continuation of the Legacy Program. The Department is expected 
to program adequate funding for this program in fiscal year 
1999.
    Charleston Macalloy site.--The Committee notes the history 
of the Defense Logistics Agency [DLA] inventory location 429 
(Macalloy site), Charleston, SC, and its manufacture of the 
alloy, ferrochromium, for the Department of Defense. A 
remediation plan for this site is currently being developed 
which will address both Federal and State environmental issues 
associated with chromium pollutants. The Committee directs the 
Department to determine whether this site is eligible under the 
formerly used defense sites [FUDS] project criteria and report 
to the congressional defense committees by February 1, 1999, on 
the results of this assessment.
    Security locks.--Federal specification FF-L-2740A was 
established by the Inter-Agency Committee on Security Equipment 
as the standard for providing secure protection of sensitive 
classified material. The Committee has supported the Department 
of Defense's efforts to retrofit existing containers with 
security locks that conform to this specification and the 
Department's procurement of new conforming containers. However, 
the Committee is concerned that sensitive classified material 
in the possession of defense contractors is not subject to the 
same protection. While new containers purchased by defense 
contractors must have locks which meet or exceed this 
specification, there remain a number of older containers which 
fall below the prescribed standard.
    The Committee, therefore, directs the Under Secretary of 
Defense for Acquisition and Technology to report to the defense 
committees on the DOD plan to ensure that defense contractors 
in possession of classified material retrofit all security 
containers which do not have security locks which meet Federal 
specification FF-L-2740A, no later than December 15, 1998.
    Community retraining, reinvestment, and manufacturing 
initiative.--The Department is directed to make available, from 
existing funds, up to $8,000,000 for a community retraining, 
reinvestment, and manufacturing initiative to be conducted by 
an academic consortia with existing programs in manufacturing 
and retraining.

                        CIVIL-MILITARY PROGRAMS

    The Committee continues to support the Department's civil-
military programs and provides a total of $88,394,000 for 
fiscal year 1999 as follows:

                        [In thousands of dollars]

Youth Challenge Program.......................................    62,394
Innovative readiness training.................................    20,000

                        ________________________________________________
      Total...................................................    88,394

    The Committee directs the Department to report to the 
Committees on Appropriations on the status of the obligation of 
these funds not later than February 15, 1999.
    Innovative readiness training.--The Department has 
conducted civil-military innovative readiness training [IRT] 
throughout the United States since the early 1990's. Through 
the use of Active and Reserve component personnel, this program 
provides community support in the areas of health care, 
engineering, and infrastructure. These combat support and 
service support units gain valuable hands-on mission essential 
training. The Committee continues to strongly support this 
realistic training and endorses such projects as Guardcare and 
Walking Shield. The Committee believes that the Department 
should expand the scope of the readiness training initiatives 
to include native American groups when appropriate and 
compatible with mission requirements.

                Institute for National Security Studies

    The Committee commends the Institute for National Security 
studies at the National Defense University for its excellent 
analysis on national security issues. The INSS annual 
``Strategic Assessment'', ``Joint Force Quarterly'' and many 
groundbreaking conferences and war games, provide the kind of 
forward-looking debate that is needed in a democracy. INSS 
researchers provide the Department of Defense with a unique and 
innovative analytical capability that will help our Nation 
develop sound national security strategies for the future.

    Real property maintenance, Army National Guard.--During the 
past several years, the Committee provided an increase for in-
house recurring maintenance and day-to-day repairs, as well as 
in-house and contract projects required to maintain, repair, 
and adapt facility infrastructure to meet mission needs. The 
Committee provides $65,000,000 for this purpose in fiscal year 
1999. The Committee intends for these funds to be used to 
reduce the growing Army National Guard real property 
maintenance project backlog within the 54 Army Guard 
organizations, not for studies or other administrative 
functions. The funds provided under this heading are in 
addition to any other funds appropriated to the Army for real 
property maintenance on behalf of the Army National Guard. The 
Committee directs the Chief of the National Guard Bureau 
provide to the Committee of Appropriations a report detailing 
how these funds will be allocated not later than March 1, 1999.
    Distance learning initiative.--The Committee provides an 
increase of $35,000,000 in the Army National Guard ``Operation 
and maintenance'' appropriation and $31,000,000 in the ``Other 
procurement, Army'' appropriation for distance learning and 
information management requirements. The Committee supports the 
regional distance learning initiative and creation of a 
distance learning network to reduce costs of training soldiers, 
as well as to track personnel and equipment inventories. The 
program is now fielded nationwide to include the territories. 
Over 200 classrooms will be fielded over the next year which 
will directly support National Guard readiness requirements and 
community development.
    The Committee directs that $4,600,000 of the funds provided 
under this heading be provided to the Montana Army Guard for a 
distance learning demonstration project that will expand access 
to informational, educational and governmental resources. These 
systems will serve as a means of delivering low cost military 
training to our National Guard forces and as a subsystem of the 
national disaster information network serving FEMA and the 
State disaster and emergency services. This project will 
provide a prototype of this type of training and integration 
within the National Guard and State organizations.
    The Committee directs that funding for the distance 
learning network be spent only for expansion and continuation 
of the program. The Committee further directs the National 
Guard Bureau provide to the congressional defense committees a 
report on how the Department intends to allocate funding for 
the distance learning program in fiscal year 1999 not later 
than November 15, 1999.
    DeBremmond Training Center.--Of the funds provided under 
this heading, the Committee provides an additional $250,000 to 
maintain and operate the DeBremmond Training Center in Roswell, 
NM.

    C-130 operations.--The Committee recognizes the increased 
demand placed on C-130 aircraft operations within the Air 
National Guard and has provided $10,000,000 to address 
increased operations, maintenance, and supports costs. Such 
funds are intended to support both the C-130 aircraft assigned 
to operational squadrons and for full coverage of the cost of 
operating and maintaining those stand alone aircraft currently 
utilized by selected States.

             OVERSEAS CONTINGENCY OPERATIONS TRANSFER FUND

Appropriations, 1998....................................  $1,884,000,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................     746,900,000
Committee recommendation................................     746,900,000

    The Committee retains this transfer fund for ongoing 
contingency operations in Southwest Asia and Bosnia and fully 
funds the original budget request. However, given the combined 
factors of the administration's announced intention to reduce 
force levels and discussions with allies during the Committee's 
April trip to Southwest Asia and Bosnia, no funds have been 
added for ongoing contingency operations, pending further 
refinement of requirements.
    In the fiscal year 1997 supplemental appropriations and 
rescissions report, the Committee directed a subdivision of the 
fund to delineate amounts appropriated by individual 
contingency operation. The Under Secretary of Defense 
(Comptroller) shall continue to notify the defense 
subcommittees 30 days in advance if the Department expects to 
exceed the total allotment for a given contingency and to 
provide quarterly reports to the defense subcommittees. These 
reports shall include amounts transferred and the requirements 
funded, in the same format as provided in supplemental and 
reprogramming requests.

                       Court of Military Appeals

Budget estimate, 1999...................................       7,324,000
Committee recommendation................................       7,324,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $7,324,000 for 
activities of the Court of Military Appeals for fiscal year 
1999.

                       Environmental Restoration

Total Appropriations, 1998..............................  $1,296,937,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................   1,259,431,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,265,431,000

    The Committee recommends a total amount for environmental 
restoration of $1,265,431,000. This is $6,000,000 above the 
budget estimate. The Committee agrees with the reductions 
proposed by the Senate Armed Services Committee in the 
environmental accounts for a total reduction of $24,000,000.
    Total environmental remediation contracts [TERC].--The 
Committee directs that not more than 25 percent of funding 
obligated by the Corps of Engineers for environmental 
remediation shall be executed through existing TERC contracts.
    Compliance with defense acquisition regulations.--For 
environmental restoration projects subject to the terms of 
section 52.2222 of the Defense Federal acquisition regulations 
[DFAR], the Committee directs that any awardee of contracts for 
such projects exceeding $1,000,000 shall submit a plan for 
compliance with section 52.2222 of the DFAR to the appropriate 
contracting office not later than 90 days after contract award.
    Notification of environmental contract awards.--The 
Committee remains concerned that the Department failed to fully 
accomplish the Committee's intent regarding adequate 
notification of the projects funded by this account. To ensure 
the Department complies with this direction, each military 
service shall notify interested State and local authorities and 
interested Members of Congress upon release of draft 
solicitations for contracts anticipated to exceed $1,000,000. 
The Committee directs that this requirement shall apply to all 
increments of indefinite delivery indefinite quantity-type 
contracts which meet this threshold.
    Building demolition and debris removal.--From funds 
available within this heading, the Committee directs the 
Department to conduct building demolition and debris removal 
for formerly used defense sites transferred to the Department 
of the Interior.
    Streamlining acquisition of environmentally preferred 
products.--Pollution prevention within the Department of 
Defense has proven to be financially viable with both short- 
and long-term savings. A critical element of pollution 
prevention is the purchase of environmentally preferred 
products [EPP's] as defined by Executive Order 12873. 
Accordingly, the Committee urges the Department, services, and 
Defense Logistics Agency to develop mechanisms to identify 
products that meet EPP standards established by appropriate 
Federal agencies or nongovernmental organizations. Further, the 
Department of Defense should include resources toward an 
interagency task force to examine Federal EPP standards, 
policies, and methods to encourage such Federal purchases, as 
well as provide resources to adequately develop the 
Department's procurement data bases so that appropriate 
environmental performance and content specifications, and other 
environmental attributes, can be properly included.
    The Committee has provided the following funding for each 
service:

may perform removals of military buildings and debris located 
on formerly used defense sites [FUDS] on native-owned land, 
State land, or land owned, or managed by the United States. To 
minimize mobilization costs at such sites, building demolition 
and debris removal will be funded along with the removal of 
other hazardous materials at such sites and shall be given the 
same funding priority as the hazardous materials projects as 
that site.

                       Items of Special Interest

                       committee recommendations

    The Committee has reflected a number of its funding 
adjustments in a table format. The Committee directs that the 
funding increases outlined in the tables which follow shall be 
provided only for the specific purposes outlined in the table 
entry.

                  procurement of product improvements

    A number of programs are currently procuring baseline 
system designs as an interim measure before transitioning 
preplanned product improvements into the systems. The Defense 
Department will likely relegate these baseline systems to a 
backup role once improved systems are available. Further, this 
approach establishes a production base with its associated 
fixed costs and minimum economic procurement quantities.
    The Committee believes that neither the current threat 
environment nor the urgency of schedule milestones justify this 
acquisition strategy. Indeed, the current outlook for defense 
spending demands that the Defense Department procure only those 
systems which will be our first line of defense in a crisis. 
For example, given the current armor threat, the Committee 
cannot support a schedule driven procurement of the brilliant 
antiarmor tank [BAT] munition, the sense and destroy munition 
[SADARM], the sensor fuzed weapon [SFW], and the wide area mine 
[WAM].
    The Committee believes that it is far more prudent to 
develop the near-term product improvements and to procure the 
objective system rather than a baseline capability. Thus, the 
Committee has proposed reductions to the procurement request 
for a number of programs, in order to limit procurement of 
baseline systems. The Committee has also provided increases in 
some cases to fully fund or accelerate the development of 
product improvements. In many cases, these product improvements 
add capability, enhance lethality, simplify manufacturing, and 
reduce operations and maintenance costs. The Committee endorses 
this more measured approach to acquisition, an approach which 
maintains a focus on both our long-term defense needs and our 
limited procurement resources. Within a disciplined procurement 
process, this does not have to mean that we always develop and 
never buy. It does mean that we can develop and procure the 
right system, and dispense with schedule driven procurement.

                             vehicle leases

    The Committee recommends several provisions which require 
the services to lease commercial vehicles, such as sedans, 
buses, ambulances, compact trucks, and utility vehicles, from 
funds made available in procurement appropriations. This action 
allows the services to exploit the competitive commercial 
leasing market, reduce base motor pool personnel and overhead, 
and plan for infrastructure reductions. The budget request for 
procurement of vehicles in the other procurement, Navy, Army, 
and Air Force, and procurement, Marine Corps and Defense-wide 
appropriations has been adjusted and the Committee has 
established a vehicle lease line in these same appropriations.

                             armored sedans

    The Committee is concerned with the Department of Defense's 
procurement of armored sedans. The Committee has adjusted the 
budget request for the individual services, and recommends that 
these vehicles be purchased or leased from within the 
``Procurement, Defense-wide'' appropriation.

                       Aircraft Procurement, Army

Appropriations, 1998....................................  $1,346,317,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................   1,325,943,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,408,652,000

    The Committee recommends $1,408,652,000, an increase of 
$82,709,000 to the budget. This appropriation finances the 
acquisition of tactical and utility helicopters and airplanes, 
including associated electronics, communications equipment, and 
armament; modification and modernization of inservice aircraft; 
flight simulators; ground support equipment; production base 
support; and components and spare parts including transmissions 
and gearboxes.

                     COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED PROGRAM

    The Committee recommendation adds funds to increase 
procurement of utility helicopters, to continue multiyear 
procurement of heavy attack helicopter upgrades, and to upgrade 
cargo helicopters.
    The allowance also adjusts funding for programs as listed 
in the following tables and as discussed in the text which 
follows.

                   COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED ADJUSTMENTS

    Excess funds.--The reductions recommended by the Committee 
in the following table delete funds which are excess to firm 
program requirements based on delays in the release of prior-
year funds; late award of contract efforts; slow execution of 
prior-year funds; or differences between the budget request and 
the actual program plans.

eliminate funds requested for programs which are not supported 
by firm requirements or out-year procurement funds; are 
premature until related, preliminary efforts are completed, and 
the results evaluated; are lower priority relative to other 
projects; are duplicative of other DOD projects; are increasing 
without a firm justification; or can be deferred without 
adversely affecting program activities.

    Program and project funding increases.--The Committee 
recommends the addition of funds for the following projects and 
programs to reflect congressional priorities; to rectify 
shortfalls in the budget request for activities; to implement 
increases endorsed and/or requested by the Army to address 
budget shortfalls; and to effect funding transfers recommended 
by the Committee or the Army.

    UH-60Q MEDEVAC helicopter.--The UH-60Q is the No. 1 near-
term medical modernization program for the Army. Yet, the 
Army's funding strategy for this program does not begin until 
fiscal year 2002. The Committee expects the Army to accelerate 
this program and should begin funding this program in fiscal 
year 2000. The Secretary of the Army is directed to submit an 
acquisition strategy plan for the UH-60Q program to the 
Committee not later than January 15, 1999.

                   COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED ADJUSTMENTS

    Program and project funding increases.--The Committee 
recommends the addition of funds for the following programs to 
reflect congressional priorities and to implement increases 
endorsed and/or requested by the Army to address budget 
shortfalls.

    Program reductions and deferrals.--The following table 
lists program reductions recommended by the Committee to 
eliminate funds requested for programs which are excess to firm 
program requirements based on delays in the release of prior-
year funds; late contract efforts; slow execution of prior-year 
funds; differences between the budget request and the actual 
program plans; or are lower priority relative to other 
programs.

    Army tactical missile system [ATACMS] BAT/BAT 
submunition.--Consistent with the observations outlined in the 
title III overview section of this report, the Committee 
recommends reductions to slow the initial rate production of 
the ATACMS BAT and the BAT submunition.

                           OTHER ADJUSTMENTS

    The Committee recommends incorporating the following 
adjustments to the budget estimate, in accordance with the 
Senate authorization committee action.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    MLRS rockets.--The Committee understands that the Army 
projects significant foreign military sales for MLRS rockets. 
Should these sales fall short of projections, the Committee 
directs the Army to reprogram sufficient funds to keep the 
production line warm, maintain the equipment required for the 
guided MLRS production, and ensure that the capability to 
produce ER-MLRS rockets remains as a war contingency.
    MLRS launchers.--The Committee has included $50,000,000 
above the budget request to procure additional MLRS launchers 
for the National Guard. The Committee has also included an 
additional $8,400,000 to procure commercial off-the-shelf 
technology [COTS] to implement the joint technical 
architecture-Army [JTA-Army] as the new M270A1 launcher is 
fielded. The Committee has been informed that if these funds 
are not provided in fiscal year 1999, JTA-Army will have to be 
retrofitted into the launchers in the future at greater 
expense.
    Javelin.--The Committee recommends an additional 
$30,000,000 for Javelin. The Committee expects the additional 
missiles purchased will be provided to crisis response forces 
stationed in the Pacific.

Budget estimate, 1999...................................   1,433,608,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,484,055,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $1,484,055,000 
for the Army's fiscal year 1999 ``Procurement of weapons and 
tracked combat vehicles'' account. The Committee recommendation 
is $50,447,000 above the President's budget request.
    This appropriation provides for the procurement of tanks, 
armored personnel carriers, and combat engineer vehicles. Funds 
are also provided for the acquisition of crew-served weapons, 
grenade launchers, towed and self-propelled guns and howitzers, 
mortars, laser rangefinders, associated training equipment, 
modification of inservice equipment, initial spares and repair 
parts, major components, and production base support.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Bradley fighting vehicles.--The Army's budget request 
includes $58,998,000 for the modification of Bradley fighting 
vehicles. The Committee recommends providing $78,998,000, an 
increase of $20,000,000 only for the procurement of armor 
tiles. The Committee recommends a reduction of $2,000,000 for 
software delays.
    M-1 Abrams tank modification.--The Army's budget request 
contained $20,300,000 for the procurement of M-1A1-D 
integration kits. Due to program savings, the Army was able to 
begin this procurement in fiscal year 1998, and the Committee 
recommends a decrease of $6,700,000. An additional decrease of 
$4,600,000 to the Abrams Upgrade Program is recommended in 
technical, engineering support, gun and gun mount overhead 
rates, and software turnover costs.
    Direct support electrical test sets [DSETS].--The Committee 
recommends an increase of $25,000,000 only for the procurement 
of DSETS and field test program sets [TPS]. The Committee 
recommends $5,000,000 for the Abrams Upgrade Program, 
$5,000,000 only for the procurement of TPS's for the Bradley 
fire integration support team vehicle, $5,000,000 for TPS's for 
the Bradley command and control vehicle, $5,000,000 for Bradley 
legacy fleet vehicle diagnostics, and $5,000,000 for TPS's for 
the Bradley linebacker Stinger missile subsystem.
    M-88A2 improved recovery vehicle.--The M-88A2 IRV is now 
being fielded to Army armor units to alleviate significant 
safety problems in recovery operations of M-1 tanks. The 
Committee strongly supports this program and understands that 
traction problems previously identified have now been resolved. 
The Army should continue this important program at an economic 
production rate of at least 24 vehicles per year until the 
service has achieved its inventory requirement for tank 
recovery vehicles.
    Heavy assault bridge.--The Committee recommends a decrease 
of $6,653,000 based on contract savings.

                           Other adjustments

    The Committee recommends incorporating the following 
adjustments to the budget estimate, in accordance with the 
Senate authorization committee action:

                   committee recommended adjustments

    Sense and destroy armor [SADARM].--The Army's budget 
request contained $56,542,000 for the procurement of basic 
SADARM. According to the Army, the product improved [PI] SADARM 
provides a 30-percent increase in effectiveness over basic 
SADARM. The Committee supports the development of PI SADARM, 
and recommends a decrease in basic SADARM of $25,000,000, and 
expects the Army to procure not less than 300 SADARM 
projectiles in 1999.
    Program and project funding adjustments.--The Committee 
recommends the adjustments for the following programs to 
reflect congressional priorities; to implement increases 
endorsed and/or requested by the Army to address budget 
shortfalls.

funds; differences between the budget request and the actual 
program plans; or are lower priority relative to other 
programs.

                   COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED ADJUSTMENTS

    Program reductions and deferrals.--The following table 
lists program reductions recommended by the Committee to 
eliminate funds requested for programs which are not supported 
by firm requirements or out-year procurement funds; are 
premature until related, preliminary efforts are completed, and 
the results evaluated; are lower priority relative to other 
projects; are duplicative of other DOD projects; are increasing 
without a firm justification; or can be deferred without 
adversely affecting program activities.

    Program and project funding increases.--The Committee 
recommends the addition of funds for the following projects and 
programs to reflect congressional priorities; to rectify 
shortfalls in the budget request for activities; to implement 
increases endorsed and/or requested by the Navy to address 
budget shortfalls; and to effect funding transfers recommended 
by the Committee or the Navy.

\2\ Program reduction recommended as described under the heading ``Program reductions and deferrals.''          

    T-45 advance procurement.--The Committee recommendation 
provides $8,000,000 for advance procurement costs associated 
with the planned procurement of 15 T-45 aircraft in fiscal year 
2000. The Committee recommendation deletes $52,159,000 of 
advance procurement funds budgeted to begin a multiyear 
procurement. The Committee fully supports T-45 procurement and 
applauds the Navy's compression of the schedule to reduce 
acquisition costs. However, the Committee believes the limited 
additional savings available through a multiyear procurement 
contract are not sufficient to justify this acquisition 
approach. Indeed, there is an equal chance that inflation 
savings and learning curve benefits will achieve comparable 
savings using annual contracts.
    The Committee has provided $8,000,000 for T-45 advance 
procurement. The Committee directs that these funds are 
available only to initiate the procurement of 15 T-45 aircraft 
in fiscal year 2000. The Committee will reconsider the Defense 
Department's request for T-45 multiyear procurement authority 
if the Department and industry can identify additional 
multiyear procurement savings adequate to justify multiyear 
acquisition authority.
    P-3 series.--The Committee recommends $279,133,000, an 
increase of $10,500,000 above the budget request as outlined in 
the table accompanying this report section. Within the funds 
appropriated pursuant to the budget request, the Committee 
directs that up to $5,000,000 is available for the replacement 
data storage system [RDSS].
    Common ECM equipment.--The Committee understands the acute 
shortage of ALQ-165 electronic warfare jamming devices has left 
the Department of the Navy without adequate numbers to support 
deploying F-14D's and F/A-18C/D's. The Marine Corps F/A-18's 
have only three suites remaining and some overseas deploying 
Navy squadrons will remain unprotected against specific threats 
the ALQ-165 counters for nearly 4 months. Therefore, the 
Committee has provided an increase of $10,000,000 for the 
procurement of 18 ALQ-165 suites. Additionally, the Committee 
directs the Department of the Navy to develop a program for 
fiscal year 2000 and beyond which fully satisfies the 
requirements of its deploying forces during the interim period 
until IDECM is fully operational.

                       Weapons Procurement, Navy

Appropriations, 1998....................................  $1,102,193,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................   1,327,545,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,324,045,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $1,324,045,000 
for the Navy's fiscal year 1999 ``Weapons procurement'' 
account, a decrease of $3,500,000 from the budget request.
    This appropriation finances the construction, procurement, 
production, modification, and modernization of strategic and 
tactical missiles, torpedoes, other weapons, related support 
equipment (including spare parts and accessories), and the 
expansion of public and private plants.

                   COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED ADJUSTMENTS

    Program reductions and deferrals.--The following table 
lists program reductions recommended by the Committee to 
eliminate funds requested for programs which are excess to firm 
program requirements based on delays in the release of prior-
year funds; late contract efforts; slow execution of prior-year 
funds; differences between the budget request and the actual 
program plans; or are lower priority relative to other 
programs.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Trident II.--The Committee is uncertain how long the Navy 
will continue to procure Trident II missiles and believes that 
funding for advance procurement of the Trident II missile in 
fiscal year 2004 is premature. Therefore, the Committee 
recommends a reduction of $20,000,000.
    Tactical missiles.--The Committee recommends reductions in 
the advanced medium range air-to-air missile [AMRAAM], and 
standard missile based on recommendations from the GAO 
concerning savings in production resulting from the merger of 
Raytheon and Hughes missile systems companies. The Committee 
also recommends a $8,900,000 reduction in the standard missile 
block IVA support costs.
    Drones and Decoys.--The Committee recommends $10,000,000 
only for the procurement of the improved tactical air launched 
decoy [ITALD].

                           OTHER ADJUSTMENTS

    The Committee recommends incorporating the following 
adjustments to the budget estimate, in accordance with the 
Senate authorization committee action.

Budget estimate, 1999...................................     429,539,000
Committee recommendation................................     480,739,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $480,739,000 
for Navy and Marine Corps ammunition for fiscal year 1999. This 
is $51,200,000 above the President's budget request.
    This appropriation finances the acquisition of ammunition, 
ammunition modernization, and ammunition-related material for 
the Navy and marine Corps.

    Navy tactical data system.--The Committee understands that 
Navy fleet training ranges currently rely on an older version 
of the advanced combat direction system which cannot support 
the Cooperative Engagement Capability [CEC] Program and other 
technologies. Installation of the AN/UYQ-70 advanced display 
system, CEC, the ACDS Block Computer 1 Program, and adaptation 
of the range ACDS interface translator at the ranges would take 
full advantage of these systems and ensure that the ranges 
maintain current technology to support fleet customers. The 
Committee encourages the Navy to proceed with this program 
expeditiously.

                   Committee recommended adjustments

    Program reductions and deferrals.--The following table 
lists program reductions recommended by the Committee to 
eliminate funds requested for programs which are excess to firm 
program requirements based on delays in the release of prior-
year funds; late contract efforts; slow execution of prior-year 
funds; differences between the budget request and the actual 
program plans; or are lower priority relative to other 
programs.

    Program reductions and deferrals.--The following table 
lists program reductions recommended by the Committee to 
eliminate funds requested for programs which are excess to firm 
program requirements based on delays in the release of prior-
year funds; late contract efforts; slow execution of prior-year 
funds; differences between the budget request and the actual 
program plans; or are lower priority relative to other 
programs.

                   COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED ADJUSTMENTS

    Program reductions and deferrals.--The following table 
lists program reductions recommended by the Committee to 
eliminate funds requested for programs which are not supported 
by firm requirements or out-year procurement funds; are 
premature until related, preliminary efforts are completed, and 
the results evaluated; are lower priority relative to other 
projects; are duplicative of other DOD projects; are increasing 
without a firm justification; or can be deferred without 
adversely affecting program activities.

\1\ Program reduction to transfer C-130 procurement funds to the ``National Guard and Reserve equipment''       
  account.                                                                                                      

    C-135.--The Committee has provided $90,000,000 to initiate 
a program for reengining 707-based aircraft with leased 
engines. The Committee understands that there are a number of 
commercial engines which could enhance the capability, improve 
the performance, and lower the maintenance costs of 707-based 
aircraft. The Committee also understands that the existing 
strong market for such commercial engines may permit DOD to 
lease these engines at favorable rates and with little or no 
lease termination liability. Accelerated reengining through 
leasing will allow DOD to realize substantial operations and 
maintenance cost savings on 707 platforms.
    The Committee directs that the $90,000,000 increase shall 
be available only to initiate a competitive program to modify 
135-series aircraft and install leased engines. The Committee 
believes that the funds provided may permit eight aircraft to 
be modified and reengined. The Committee directs that at least 
two of the modified aircraft be RC-135 Rivet Joints. The 
Committee has also recommended a reduction of $57,300,000 in 
the Defense Airborne Reconnaissance Program to shift the 
budgeted Rivet Joint reengining procurement into this new 
leasing program.
    Theater airborne warning sensor [TAWS].--The Committee 
recommendation provides $2,000,000 to complete testing and 
document the results of the TAWS demonstration effort. At the 
direction of the Congress, the Department of Defense 
reevaluated the need for airborne infrared detection and 
tracking of theater ballistic missiles. Based on this analysis, 
DOD concluded that the airborne warning and control system 
[AWACS] Eagle and Rivet Joint TAWS efforts should be brought to 
an orderly termination with the results transferred to the 
Airborne Laser [ABL] Program, a system which inherently 
provides this detection capability.
    The Committee endorses the Department of Defense conclusion 
on airborne infrared system requirements. Since DOD completed 
its assessment, development efforts have proceeded successfully 
on a new generation of ballistic missile warning sensors. Every 
Aegis ship can now detect and track theater ballistic missiles, 
providing a more accurate estimate of the launch point and 
impact point than TAWS. Furthermore, Aegis radar can track 
these missiles in all weather conditions, while infrared 
systems cannot. Indeed, at the recent Willow Dune ballistic 
missile launch exercise involving a variety of tracking 
sensors, TAWS was the only sensor not to detect the ballistic 
missile target. The space-based infrared system high component 
[SBIRS-High] will dramatically enhance our global ability to 
provide infrared surveillance of theater and strategic 
ballistic missile launches. Finally, the availability of 
upgraded Patriot advanced capability 3 [PAC-3] missile radars 
and THAAD ground-based radars [GBR] have significantly advanced 
the Pentagon's ground-based missile tracking capability. Thus, 
the Committee endorses bringing the TAWS Program to an orderly 
conclusion and transferring any lessons learned to the ABL 
Program.
    B-1B modifications.--The Committee recommendation deletes 
$33,100,000 budgeted for procurement of the ALE-50 towed decoy 
systems [TDS] for the B-1B aircraft fleet. Consistent with the 
observations contained in the ``Procurement of Product 
Improvements,'' the Committee believes these purchases should 
be deferred. The Committee urges the Defense Department to 
proceed with the block F upgrade which will install a more 
capable fiber optic towed decoy [FOTD].
    Commander in Chief [CINC] support aircraft.--The Committee 
recommendation provides $79,600,000 to purchase two C-37 
aircraft for use as CINC support aircraft. The Committee 
addresses this issue further in the O&M;, Air Force section of 
this report.
    Onboard oxygen generating system [OBOGS].--The Committee 
now understands that OBOGS installations on the F-117 are under 
consideration. The maturity of the technology, the availability 
of several nondevelopmental candidates, and the accelerated 
implementation cost payback through O&M; savings justify early 
OBOGS installations. The Air Force is directed to fund and 
conduct a 4-year nondevelopmental OBOGS installation program 
for the Active and Reserve inventory of F-16, A-10, and F-117 
aircraft starting in fiscal year 2001. The Committee further 
directs the Air Force to consider the benefits of maintaining 
maximum OBOGS hardware commonality in these installations. 
Given the availability of mature OBOGS technology, the 
Committee believes the Air Force can develop or implement its 
OBOGS installation plans without further R&D; expenditures, 
except as minimally required for unique aircraft integration 
and test purposes.
    In addition, having already developed and initiated the 
production of OBOGS for the T-6A trainer, the Air Force is 
directed to exploit the benefits of hardware commonality 
through the installation of T-6A-common OBOGS on the T-38 
trainer starting in fiscal year 2001. Finally, the Air Force 
should assess whether inclusion of OBOGS installation 
provisions are appropriate during the T-38 avionics upgrade 
program.

                     Missile Procurement, Air Force

Appropriations, 1998....................................  $2,394,202,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................   2,359,803,000
Committee recommendation................................   2,219,299,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $2,219,299,000 
for the ``Missile procurement, Air Force'' account for fiscal 
year 1999. This recommendation is $140,504,000 below the budget 
request.
    This appropriation provides financing for the construction, 
procurement, and modification of missiles, rockets, spacecraft, 
and related equipment, including investment and repair parts, 
ground-handling equipment, and training devices; and the 
expansion of public and private plants, Government-owned 
equipment, and installations.

                   COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED ADJUSTMENTS

    Program reductions and deferrals.--The following table 
lists program reductions recommended by the Committee to 
eliminate funds requested for programs which are excess to firm 
program requirements based on delays in the release of prior-
year funds; late contract efforts; slow execution of prior-year 
funds; differences between the budget request and the actual 
program plans; or are lower priority relative to other 
programs.

    Advanced-medium-range air-to-air missile [AMRAAM].--The 
Committee recommends a reduction to the AMRAAM missile based on 
a recommendation from the GAO concerning savings in production 
resulting from the merger of Raytheon and Hughes missile 
systems companies.
    Inertial upper stages space.--The Committee recommends a 
reduction based on a recommendation from the GAO that 
integration and launch support and engineering change order 
costs are lower than previously estimated.
    Titan space boosters.--The Committee recommends a reduction 
based on the Air Force decision to move from a 40 vehicle to a 
39 vehicle buy as well as savings due to renegotiated contract 
costs for the entire Titan IV program.
    Target drones.--The Committee recommends a reduction to 
target drones based on an Air Force decision to revise 
requirements and procurement plans for aerial targets since the 
submission of the budget.

                           OTHER ADJUSTMENTS

    The Committee recommends incorporating the following 
adjustments to the budget estimate, in accordance with the 
Senate authorization committee action.

    Patriot advanced capability 3 [PAC-3].--The Committee 
provides $192,735,000, a decrease of $150,500,000 to the budget 
request for Patriot PAC-3 procurement. The reduction deletes 
$100,800,000 for the planned low rate initial procurement 
[LRIP] of 60 PAC-3 missiles, $15,000,000 for initial spares, 
$19,700,000 for nonrecurring tooling, and $15,000,000 for 
production support.
    The PAC-3 program's first intercept test has been delayed 
at least 10 months relative to the fiscal year 1998 program 
schedule. However, the Committee is encouraged by the PAC-3 
program's measured and thorough ground testing efforts which 
will, hopefully, pay dividends when the missile begins flight 
testing. However, because of these delays, the fiscal year 1998 
PAC-3 LRIP funds remain available to begin production of PAC-3 
missiles. The availability of the fiscal year 1998 LRIP funds 
make further appropriations for a fiscal year 1999 LRIP 
premature.
    The Committee continues to be concerned about the Ballistic 
Missile Defense Organization's plans to contract for the 
manufacture of missile interceptors based on a single intercept 
flight test. The Committee directs that the fiscal year 1998 
PAC-3 LRIP funds may not be obligated until the PAC-3 missile 
successfully completes three intercept flight tests.
    Vehicle leases.--The Committee recommends that funds 
provided for commercial vehicles are for leases rather than 
procurement.
    Automatic document conversion system.--The Committee 
recommends an additional $20,000,000 in major equipment, DLA 
only for the automated document conversion system [ADCS]. The 
Committee further directs the Department of Defense to submit a 
plan to the Committee by February 1, 1999, on the transition of 
the ADCS Program to service budgets, commencing with the fiscal 
year 2000 budget submission.

                  National Guard and Reserve Equipment

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $653,000,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................................
Committee recommendation................................     500,000,000

    The Committee recommends a funding level of $500,000,000 
for National Guard and Reserve dedicated equipment. This 
recommendation is $500,000,000 above the budget request.
    The appropriation for this account includes direction for 
each Reserve or National Guard component commander to prepare 
and submit to the congressional defense committees a detailed 
assessment of that component's modernization priorities.
    The Committee maintains that the Reserves and National 
Guard should exercise control of funds provided for their 
modernization in this account. The separate submission of these 
assessments, directly from the components chiefs to the 
committees will ensure that the Reserve and National Guard 
priorities are addressed in the allocation of this 
appropriation.

                       committee recommendations

    The Committee has reflected a number of its funding 
adjustments in a table format. The Committee directs that the 
funding increases outlined in the tables which follow shall be 
provided only for the specific purposes outlined in the table 
entry.

                    airborne reconnaissance transfer

    The reorganization of airborne reconnaissance within the 
Department of Defense has necessitated a transfer of Defense-
wide RDT&E; funds to the services. Therefore, in accordance with 
departmental requests, or as a result of Committee action taken 
during review of the fiscal year 1999 budget request, the 
Committee has transferred funds from RDT&E;, Defense-Wide, to 
service RDT&E; accounts.

air directed surface-to-air missile [adsam] and air directed air-to-air 
                            missile [adaam]

    The Committee understands that the Department of Defense 
has been evaluating technologies and operational concepts to 
support the use of an aircraft-based sensor to perform 
targeting and fire control for missiles launched from other 
aircraft or ground platforms. Experimentation with this concept 
to date has been insufficient to exploit this capability and to 
understand the potential impacts on doctrine, command and 
control, and joint warfighting operations.
    The Committee believes that the performance of a number of 
current DOD missile systems could be enhanced using this 
airborne fire control concept. Further, the design of systems 
under development could be affected by exploiting ADSAM and 
ADAAM technologies. For example, the medium extended air 
defense system [MEADS] concept might more easily achieve its 
mobility and performance requirements by incorporating an 
airborne fire control radar.
    The Committee has made a series of recommendations to 
permit thorough testing and evaluation of this technology 
through demonstrations. The Committee has included funds in the 
appropriate accounts to permit the purchase of a limited number 
of modified Patriot advanced capability 3 [PAC-3] and standard 
missile block IVA missiles to support live fire testing of this 
concept. The Committee has also included additional funds to 
enable the planning, hardware modifications, and conduct of 
ADSAM and ADAAM experiments.
    Finally, the Committee has made reductions to slow the pace 
of a number of programs which could be affected by the results 
of ADSAM and ADAAM experiments. Specifically, the Committee has 
provided lower appropriations for MEADS, the Joint Land Attack 
Elevated Netted Sensor [JLENS] Program, and related activities.

           Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation, Army

Appropriations, 1998....................................  $5,156,507,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................   4,780,545,000
Committee recommendation................................   4,891,640,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $4,891,640,000 
for the Army's research, development, test, and evaluation 
programs, an increase of $111,095,000 to the budget request. 
The budget activities and programs funded under this 
appropriation are discussed below.

                   COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED ADJUSTMENTS

    Sensors and electronic survivability.--The Committee 
continues to support Army evaluation of the projectile 
detection and cueing program. The Committee is aware that the 
Army Research Lab [ARL] will receive five systems, one of which 
will be mounted on a high mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicle 
[HMMWV]. The Committee also recognizes that the program is in 
development for participation and evaluation under the Military 
Operations in Urban Terrain Advanced Concept Technology 
Demonstration Program. The Committee supports continued 
development of the system with previously appropriated funds 
and transition from an ARL effort to an Army Research, 
Development, and Engineering Center effort in fiscal year 2000 
and beyond.
    Weapons and munitions technology.--In the Department of 
Defense Appropriations Act, 1998, the Congress provided 
$5,000,000 for development and testing of plastic-cased 
ammunition. The Committee understands that the Navy and the 
Special Operations Command have expressed an interest in the 
potential of this technology to provide lighter ammunition. The 
Committee directs that fiscal year 1998 funds be released and 
that the execution of these funds be completed in coordination 
with the Office of Naval Research.
    Environmental quality technology.--The Committee recommends 
$51,742,000, an increase of $37,900,000 above the budget 
request. The Committee adds $20,000,000 for pollution 
prevention research and development initiatives, to be used 
only for the National Defense Center for Environmental 
Excellence to perform the materials and processes partnership 
for pollution prevention [MP\4\] initiative. In addition, the 
Committee provides $5,000,000 for the plasma energy pyrolysis 
system, $5,400,000 for the Small Business Development Center, 
$4,000,000 for agriculturally based bioremediation, and 
$3,500,000 for the Radford environmental development and 
management system. Within the remaining available funds, up to 
$5,000,000 is provided to the U.S. Army Construction 
Engineering Research Laboratory to continue research and 
development environmental compliance projects using the 
personnel and technologies available at the WETO facility.
    The Committee directs the U.S. Army Chemical Weapons School 
to work with a uniquely qualified educational institution to 
assess the ability of biogenic oils to replace petroleum oils 
to produce obscurant smoke during smoke training. The 
assessment shall include the chemical and physical 
characteristics of the produced smoke generated from the state-
of-the-art Army equipment. The toxicology and risk assessment 
will be produced and compared to provide the necessary data for 
evaluating the relative values to identify the preferable 
product.
    The Committee directs that $4,000,000 to continue the 
agriculturally based bioremediation program shall be 
administered by the U.S. Army Waterways Experiment Station, as 
program director with overall technical and fiscal management 
for test, evaluation, and demonstration of remediation 
technologies. The station shall work with the U.S. Department 
of Agriculture and military installations in the Pacific to 
conduct developmental work and project execution as necessary 
to restore contaminated sites in Pacific Island ecosystems.
    Aviation advanced technology.--The Committee provides an 
increase of $21,000,000 to conduct a live fire shootoff of the 
air-to-air Stinger and air-to-air Starstreak missiles as 
candidates for future procurement as a self-protection air-to-
air missile system. This shootoff will be an operational test 
with combat scenarios conducted from an AH-64D Longbow Apache 
helicopter against unenhanced targets in clutter to determine 
which missile provides the shortest time of engagement, highest 
probability of kill, and greatest ease of operation consistent 
with the Army's mission needs statement.
    Aerostat Joint Program Office.--The Committee 
recommendation deletes $58,937,000 from the budget request for 
the joint land attack elevated netted sensor [JLENS] aerostat-
based sensor program. Consistent with the observations outlined 
in the title IV overview section of this report, the Committee 
directs that the remaining funds be devoted to participation 
and support of air directed surface-to-air missile [ADSAM] and 
air directed air-to-air missile [ADAAM] demonstrations and to 
limited scope JLENS design and development activities. The 
Committee believes that the ADSAM and ADAAM experimentation 
will allow the Defense Department to make better informed 
determinations of airborne sensor requirements, command and 
control architecture needs, and the balance between aircraft 
and aerostat based sensors, as well as associated basing and 
survivability issues.
    Force XXI Warfighting Rapid Acquisition Program [WRAP].--
The Committee provides $69,528,000, a decrease of $30,000,000 
to the budget request. The Committee acknowledges that the 
brigade and division advanced warfighting experiments conducted 
in 1997 yielded a number of concepts which merited investment 
or acceleration. However, the Army does not have exercises of 
this scale planned in the remainder of 1998 or 1999. Further, 
many of the candidates for the fiscal year 1998 funds are 
projects which did not make the priority list earlier in the 
WRAP process.
    The Committee understands that the Army has a requirement 
for a drop zone capable, multiutility, commercially available 
vehicle for the movement of supplies and injured personnel in 
rugged terrain. The Committee recommends that the Army give 
consideration to the military GATOR in meeting this mission 
requirement under the competitive fiscal year 1999 Warfighting 
Rapid Acquisition Program.
    Landmine alternatives.--The Committee understands that the 
Department has launched a search for alternatives to 
antipersonnel landmines, including those that are used in mixed 
mine systems, with the goal of fielding such alternatives as 
soon as practicable. The Committee supports this effort and 
includes $12,500,000 for fiscal year 1999 for activities 
relating to the identification, adaptation, modification, 
research, and development of existing and new tactics, 
technologies, and operational concepts that (1) would produce a 
comparable combat capability to antipersonnel landmines, 
including those in mixed mine systems, and (2) are compliant 
with the Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, 
Production and Transfer of Antipersonnel Mines and on Their 
Destruction. The Secretary of Defense shall submit a report to 
the congressional defense committees by March 1, 1999, 
describing progress made in identifying and fielding such 
alternative, and future plans in this effort.
    Management headquarters.--The Committee recommends 
$22,683,000 for management headquarters, of which $18,000,000 
shall be only for the Akamai project. Within this amount, not 
less than $4,000,000 shall be for hyperspectral diagnostic 
imaging and $2,000,000 shall be for the remote access to 
medical specialists program.
    Maintenance and repair [RPM] RDT&E.--The; Committee 
recommends $80,233,000, an increase of $31,000,000 to the 
budget request. The Committee is very concerned about the level 
of maintenance and repair activities funded by the Army budget 
request for laboratories and major range and test facility 
bases [MRTFB's]. The Committee directs that $1,000,000 of the 
additional funds be used only for Cold Regions Research 
Laboratory maintenance and repairs. The Committee directs that 
$30,000,000 be used for activities such as heating and cooling 
system, road, water system, and roof maintenance and repair. Of 
this amount, $20,800,000 is provided for White Sands Missile 
Range and $9,200,000 is provided for Aberdeen Proving Ground 
and Dugway Proving Ground.

                           OTHER ADJUSTMENTS

    Program reductions and deferrals.--The following table 
lists program reductions recommended by the Committee to 
eliminate funds requested for programs which are not supported 
by firm requirements or out-year development and procurement 
funds; are premature until related, preliminary efforts are 
completed, and the results evaluated; are lower priority 
relative to other projects; are duplicative of other DOD 
projects; are increasing without a firm justification and out-
year transition commitments; or can be deferred without 
adversely affecting related program developments.

           Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation, Navy

Appropriations, 1998....................................  $8,115,686,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................   8,108,923,000
Committee recommendation................................   8,215,519,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $8,215,519,000 
for the Navy's research, development, test, and evaluation 
programs, an increase of $106,596,000 to the budget request.
    The budget activities and programs funded under this 
appropriation are discussed below.

                   COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED ADJUSTMENTS

    Defense research sciences.--The Committee directs that 
$500,000 within funds made available for this program shall be 
designated for continuing the Navy's cooperative marine mammal 
research program.
    Marine Corps advanced technology demonstration.--The 
Committee recommends $33,600,000 for the Sea Dragon Laboratory 
Program, an increase of $10,000,000. The Committee expects that 
the Marines will allocate $4,000,000 to provide full support 
for ongoing modeling and simulation efforts within this amount.
    Advanced technology transition.--The Committee notes that 
the SLICE advanced technology demonstration [ATD] has exceeded 
all expectations in its speed and ride quality performance. The 
Committee understands the Office of Naval Research intends to 
study additional futuristic hull form technologies using this 
program as a baseline in the coming years. As a transition to 
this next phase, the Committee recommends $10,000,000 to 
develop SLICE follow-on technology, specifically for a SLICE 
trailer ATD. This trailer will be available to support aegis 
testing to be conducted beginning in January 2000.
    Command, control, and communications technology.--The 
Committee recommends an increase of $11,000,000 for the ONR 
surveillance program to support evaluation of technologies for 
improving naval surveillance, tracking, and targeting 
capabilities in littoral operations. The Committee supports an 
expansion of current development and test efforts using an 
elevated ground-based site for cost-effective testing of 
airborne surveillance technologies. These funds shall be 
available for sensor development work, antenna and sensor 
testing, and site enhancements in conjunction with the UHF 
electronically scanned array ATD. The program will lead to the 
initiation of the Navy's follow-on Sensor Fusion and Network 
Centric Battlefield Demonstration Program. Not less than 
$1,000,000 of this amount is available to plan and develop 
suitable systems to support emerging requirements for sensor 
integration and testing.
    Cooperative engagement capability.--The Committee continues 
to support the U.S. Navy Cooperative Engagement Capability 
[CEC] Program and believes that a space augmented CEC has the 
potential to enhance greatly the systems effectiveness of air 
and missile defense programs. The Committee also believes that 
the Navy should work with the Air Force through the SBIRS 
requirements review process to pursue the integration of the 
CEC into the SBIRS system architecture. Therefore, the 
Committee recommends an increase of $10,000,000 for CEC SBIRS 
and Milstar range extension demonstrations.
    Carrier systems development.--The Committee recommends that 
$50,000,000 for future aircraft carrier system development be 
used exclusively for CVN-77 development.
    Airborne mine countermeasures.--The Committee supports the 
Navy's recent decision to seek full and complete competition 
for the airborne mine neutralization system [AMNS] and 
associated CH-60 integration. The Committee recommends an 
additional $2,000,000 to accelerate the evaluation of 
preplanned product improvements that will provide an autonomous 
operational capability to the system selected by the Navy.
    Standard missile.--The Committee recommendation provides an 
increase of $5,000,000 for the Standard Missile Program. The 
Committee directs that the additional funds are available only 
for the Navy to modify and build at least two Standard Missile 
test assets which will be dedicated to an ADSAM demonstration. 
The remaining funds should be used by the Navy to support and 
participate in the ADSAM and ADAAM experiments proposed by the 
Committee. Additional Committee observations on this issue are 
outlined in the title IV overview section of this report.
    CVX.--The Committee recommends $74,312,000 for future 
aircraft carrier research and development, a reduction of 
$115,688,000 from the budget. The Committee understands that 
the Navy is currently restructuring its CVX program, and plans 
to use $50,000,000 to introduce new technologies into the CVN-
77. The Committee has provided $50,000,000 for this purpose. 
The Committee has also included $5,000,000 in ship preliminary 
design and feasibility studies to establish a red team to study 
a futuristic aircraft carrier concept. Under this plan, the 
team should evaluate the merits of a carrier designed for the 
JSF aircraft and assume other STOVL and rotary wing aircraft 
will perform support missions. Furthermore, a primary goal of 
the program should be to reduce the crew requirements by 50 
percent, a trend increasingly common in commercial ships.
    The Committee has also been informed that as part of CVX 
restructuring, the Navy plans to focus their initial research 
efforts on the development of the next generation nuclear 
powerplant and electrical system in order to begin construction 
of CVX in 2006. The Committee expects the Navy to use the 
remaining CVX funding to begin development of this next 
generation nuclear powerplant.
    Common integrated electric drive systems.--The Committee is 
aware that an industry team has made a substantial investment 
to develop and demonstrate a domestic electric drive, at no 
cost to the Navy, for use in the Navy's Large Scale Vehicle 
[LSV II] Program. The Committee directs the Secretary of the 
Navy to provide a report to the Committee by March 1, 1999, 
which evaluates the installation of a common integrated 
electric drive system for DD-21, CV(X) and an NSSN variant with 
both a common integrated electric drive system and a 
conventional mechanical drive system. Additionally, the study 
should include an evaluation of secondary impacts, including 
but not limited to: life cycle, logistics, logistics train, 
manning, and operation and maintenance costs.
    Terfenol-D.--The Committee directs that $3,200,000 shall be 
available only to achieve further cost reductions in the 
application of terfenol-D, the magnetostrictive, iron/terbium/
dysprosium alloy for new high performance sonar systems.
    Low signature ejection technology [LOSET].--The Committee 
is aware of the need for the development of soft launch 
capability for the shoulder launched multipurpose assault 
weapon [SMAW]. Therefore, the Committee recommends an increase 
of $4,000,000 to the Marine Corps ``Ground combat/support 
system'' account for application of low signature ejection 
technology to the SMAW system.

                           OTHER ADJUSTMENTS

    Program reductions and deferrals.--The following table 
lists program reductions recommended by the Committee to 
eliminate funds requested for programs which are not supported 
by firm requirements or out-year development and procurement 
funds; are premature until related, preliminary efforts are 
completed, and the results evaluated; are lower priority 
relative to other projects; are duplicative of other DOD 
projects; are increasing without a firm justification and out-
year transition commitments; or can be deferred without 
adversely affecting related program developments.

         Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation, Air Force

Appropriations, 1998.................................... $14,507,804,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................  13,598,093,000
Committee recommendation................................  13,693,153,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of 
$13,693,153,000 for the Air Force's research, development, 
test, and evaluation programs, an increase of $95,060,000 to 
the budget request.
    The budget activities and programs funded under this 
appropriation are discussed below.

                   COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED ADJUSTMENTS

    Airborne laser [ABL].--The Committee provides $235,219,000, 
a net decrease of $57,000,000 to the budget request for 
airborne laser development. The Committee recommendation 
deletes $97,000,000, consistent with the Senate-reported 
Department of Defense authorization bill. The reduction deletes 
funds for air vehicle integration and checkout and for purchase 
of the aircraft. The Committee has added $40,000,000 to support 
ground testing of ABL components as a risk reduction measure 
prior to proceeding with aircraft integration.
    In a 1994 briefing to the Committee, the Air Force outlined 
a risk mitigation approach for the Airborne Laser Program. One 
criteria the Air Force established prior to proceeding to ABL 
demonstrator development was propagation and lethality. The Air 
Force planned to determine whether we can kill the target by 
focusing sufficient lethal energy under representative 
operational conditions. The Committee does not believe that 
this criteria has been met. Therefore, the Committee has added 
$40,000,000 for ground testing and integration necessary to 
meet this criteria prior to proceeding with purchase of an 
aircraft and integration. These added funds should be used to 
conduct ground testing of a representative laser against a 
representative airborne target at appropriate separation 
distances. The tests should yield information on laser beam 
quality and energy deposition on the target.
    Spacetrack.--The Committee recommends $42,832,000 for the 
Spacetrack Program, an increase of $3,300,000. Of this amount, 
$1,400,000 is only for the spectrograph program underway at 
Maui space surveillance site. The balance of $1,900,000 is 
provided only to fully fund AEOS-related acquisition and 
research. Currently, AEOS research-related activities are 
conducted by the Air Force Research Laboratory (Phillips Lab) 
in conjunction with Air Force Space Command. The acquisition of 
the AEOS telescope combined with existing assets located at the 
site and nearby, will enable the Air Force to oversee a wide 
range of space and directed energy technology research for 
current and future Air Force, other defense, and scientific 
needs. This new capability will allow the activity to expand 
its research efforts while still serving the important mission 
requirements of Space Command. Limiting the site to supporting 
only the operational requirements of one user would marginalize 
the utility of and investment in AEOS. Therefore, the Committee 
directs the Air Force Research Laboratory to maintain 
responsibility for all defense and reimbursable research 
activities at the site. The Committee is also aware that Air 
Force Space Command is examining the use of the National Guard 
in managing its operations at the site. The Committee expects 
to be kept fully informed of this matter and directs that the 
Air Force report to the Committee prior to implementing any 
change in the utilization of the Guard.
    F-16 squadrons.--The Committee expresses its concern about 
the aging of F-16A/B aircraft flown by the Air National Guard 
Wings in North Dakota, Arkansas, Minnesota, and Montana. These 
aircraft are approaching, and in some cases have exceeded, 
their projected useful life. In order to ensure that these 
wings continue their role in our Nation's defense, the 
Committee provides $20,000,000 to define a service life 
extension and capability enhancement package for Air National 
Guard F-16A/B aircraft. The Committee directs that these funds 
be directed toward initiation of kit production in fiscal year 
2000 and subsequent delivery and installation of these kits at 
the earliest possible date.
    Major T&E; investment.--The Committee has provided 
$5,000,000 to continue analysis and design of a hypersonic test 
facility which would be a one-of-a-kind, national test 
facility, capable of simulating true air conditions in Mach 
numbers of 8 and beyond. Presently there are no continuous flow 
facilities in the United States capable of simulating air flows 
beyond Mach 8. Such a test facility would create new hypersonic 
research, development, and test opportunities for DOD.
    Advanced spacecraft technology.--The Committee understands 
that the Air Force has initiated a solar orbit transfer 
vehicles [SOTV] flight demonstration program, scheduled to fly 
on the first EELV test flight in October 2001. The SOTV system 
potentially can reduce the cost of launch for DOD payloads and 
provide greater operational capability and improved 
survivability for satellites on orbit. The Committee also 
acknowledges the savings to the Government that can be achieved 
by utilizing space on the EELV test flight for the SOTV flight 
demonstration. The Committee recommends an increase of 
$7,500,000 for the SOTV flight demonstration program.
    Target systems development.--The Committee believes that 
the extensive electronic warfare [EW] capabilities of the BCPO 
are at risk of being lost to the DOD test, training, and 
evaluation communities because of escalating cost. The BCPO, a 
White Sands Missile Range asset, provides EW T&E;, training and 
EW vulnerability assessments worldwide and is essential to the 
exploration of new equipment effectiveness and suitability 
testing and to the assessment of operational concepts 
applicable to DOD missions at large. While these capabilities 
are critical to DOD missions, it is difficult for development 
programs to bear the full operating and maintenance costs and 
flying hour rate charges. Therefore, the Committee has provided 
$8,000,000 only for the Air Force to pay the basic maintenance, 
operating, and upgrade costs for Big Crow assets.
    The Committee, therefore, directs that the Secretary of 
Defense provide a report no later than December 31, 1999, 
outlining a management and funding plan for sustaining Big Crow 
electronic warfare test assets in fiscal year 2000 and beyond.
    U-2 Program.--The U-2/TR-1 operated between 1985 and 1992 
without one single class A mishap. Since 1992 to the present, 
there have been seven. The Committee is extremely concerned 
about the high incidence of class A mishaps and supports the 
Department's efforts to initiate efforts, such as complete 
contractor logistics support, to ensure that this critical 
program is preserved.
    The Committee has provided $7,500,000 only for sustainment 
of the RAS-1R prime mission equipment until the next generation 
improvements, currently under contract, are available.
    The Committee has provided an additional $6,600,000 only to 
begin preliminary designs for glass cockpit ($3,000,000) and 
JP-8 conversion ($3,600,000) efforts. The Committee expects the 
Air Force to include funding for these much needed 
modernization programs in its fiscal year 2000 budget 
submission.

                           OTHER ADJUSTMENTS

    Excess funds.--The reductions recommended by the Committee 
in the following table delete funds which are excess to firm 
program requirements based on delays in the release of prior-
year funds; late award of contract efforts; slow execution of 
prior-year funds; or differences between the budget request and 
current actual program plans.

    Program reductions and deferrals.--The following table 
lists program reductions recommended by the Committee to 
eliminate funds requested for programs which are not supported 
by firm requirements or out-year development and procurement 
funds; are premature until related, preliminary efforts are 
completed, and the results evaluated; are lower priority 
relative to other projects; are duplicative of other DOD 
projects; are increasing without a firm justification and out-
year transition commitments; or can be deferred without 
adversely affecting related program developments.

       Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation, Defense-wide

Appropriations, 1998....................................  $9,821,760,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................   9,314,665,000
Committee recommendation................................   9,032,908,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $9,032,908,000 
for defense-wide research, development, test, and evaluation 
programs, a decrease of $281,757,000 to the budget request.
    The budget activities and programs funded under this 
appropriation are discussed below.

                   COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED ADJUSTMENTS

    Defense research sciences.--The Committee recognizes the 
critical need for DOD to seek new technologies to prevent 
corrosion, reduce corrosion-related costs, and extend the life 
of aircraft in a manner compatible with environmental concerns. 
The current use of chromium positive ions, identified by the 
Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] as hazardous material, 
poses maintenance and removal problems for the Armed Services. 
The Committee is aware of interdisciplinary research in 
anticorrosion and provides $1,200,000 to support research on 
the improvement of testing methods, instrumentation, and 
procedures for characterizing coated aluminum clad systems used 
in aircraft fleets.
    The Committee further is aware of research on the 
applications of spectral hole burning [SHB], a technique which 
exploits lasers and developing optoelectronics technologies. 
Storage devices using SHB techniques and materials recently 
established a world record for bandwidth-spatial density. This 
technology holds great promise for meeting the high-speed 
network needs and high-density storage requirements of next 
generation computing and internet devices. The Committee 
directs that up to $2,000,000 shall be made available only for 
research on applications of SHB to optical time and frequency 
domain memory, signal processing, delay, routing, and optical 
frequency standards.
    The Committee also urges the Department of Defense to 
accommodate the funding levels recommended in the Senate-
reported Department of Defense authorization bill for 
continuation of the United States-Japan Management Training 
Program.
    The Committee encourages the Defense Advanced Research 
Projects Agency [DARPA] to support advanced acoustics research 
coordinated by a multiuniversity research institution with a 
regional advanced acoustics research and development program. 
In particular, the Committee supports research on medical 
ultrasound technology, which may have applications for 
noninvasive remote surgery as well as battlefield trauma, and 
research on the photoacoustic detection of chemical and 
biological warfare agents.
    Gulf war illness.--The Committee notes that the Department 
has spent considerable resources to determine what factors may 
have contributed to the gulf war illnesses afflicting thousands 
of veterans. The Department has a need to rapidly determine the 
exposure of deployed troops to environmental threats, including 
weapons of mass destruction. The same method could also help 
determine whether military personnel had been exposed to a 
chemical agent due to a terrorist attack, even if outward 
symptoms are not immediately apparent. The Committee directs 
the Department to establish a biomonitoring system to assess 
exposures of military personnel to weapons of mass destruction 
and other toxic substances. The Department shall establish this 
system in the most cost-effective manner.
    Computing systems and communications technology.--The 
Committee is aware that the sponsorship of the Software 
Engineering Institute [SEI] was transferred in June 1997, from 
the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency [DARPA] to the 
Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and 
Technology, but that the funding request for SEI in fiscal year 
1999 is included within the programs administered by DARPA. The 
Committee recommendation provides $17,100,000, the budget 
request amount, only for continued activities at SEI.
    Advanced electronics technology.--The Committee directs 
that the $10,000,000 made available for mask research is 
provided to DARPA for support of x-ray masks for the F-22, 
Apache Longbow, and other defense programs.
    Defense Special Weapons Agency [DSWA].--The Committee is 
dismayed to learn that the Department is giving serious 
consideration to the fragmentation and transfer of the critical 
nuclear and WMD-related functions currently performed by Field 
Command DSWA. Previous studies and efficient management 
practices in an era of downsizing argue in favor of 
consolidated execution by a single entity. Field Command is 
already efficiently performing essential nuclear stockpile 
support, nuclear surety inspections, and WMD-related testing as 
a key member of the New Mexico nuclear corridor. These 
functions are fundamental and integral to the mission of the 
new Defense Threat Reduction Agency [DTRA] and shall be the 
responsibility of the new Agency. In the interest of efficiency 
and colocation of activities, the Committee believes that all 
of these functions should continue to be performed by DTRA at 
the present Field Command locations.
    Physical security equipment.--Of the amount appropriated 
for physical security, the Committee has included $3,000,000 
for analytic system and software for evaluating safe guards and 
security which has also been included by the authorizing 
committee.
    Humanitarian demining technologies.--The Committee 
continues to support demining research and development efforts 
and directs that within funds appropriated for this program, 
$800,000 is to be used for research and development of acoustic 
technologies.
    Pacific Disaster Center.--The Committee recommends 
$8,000,000 for the Pacific Disaster Center [PDC] to support 
current operations. The Committee has been informed that the 
Air Weather Service is interested in studying climatology 
impacts through modeling and simulation and believes the PDC 
should examine how it might aid this proposal. PDC should also 
examine ways to expand its current outreach efforts with the 
local community through continued use of and financial linkage 
to the economic development board.
    DOD's reorganization plan which combines the Office of the 
Assistant Secretary of Defense, C\3\I, and the Deputy Under 
Secretary of Defense for Space offers a unique opportunity for 
the newly formed organization to combine the efforts of several 
different projects with civilian and defense interests involved 
in emergency management. The programs include the Pacific 
Disaster Center, hazard support system, Project Wildfire, 
global disaster information network, and other related 
emergency management initiatives. The Committee believes 
continuity of management is critical to the success of the 
aforementioned programs and, therefore, directs that the office 
formerly under the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Space 
shall continue to maintain oversight over and responsibility 
for these programs within the newly formed organization.
    NATO imagery interoperability.--Of the funds provided for 
NATO R&D;, $4,000,000 may be used for the purpose of modifying 
the image product library to make these systems compatible with 
NATO imagery formats outlined in applicable NATO 
standardization agreements 7023 and 4545.
    Information Systems Security Program.--The Committee 
directs that of the funds appropriated, $500,000 shall be 
available only for the high security computational structure 
project focused on mitigation of information warfare threats.
    Special operations technology development.--The Committee 
notes that wireless video links with extended ranges may have 
very broad applications ranging from force protection, 
surveillance, reconnaissance, counterdrug, and 
counterintelligence. Given the broad spectrum of applicability 
through U.S. military operations and requirements, the 
Committee encourages the Department to consider funding for the 
continued development of miniature audio visual surveillance 
systems.

                 BALLISTIC MISSILE DEFENSE ORGANIZATION

    Ballistic Missile Defense Organization [BMDO].--The 
Committee has provided $3,178,498,000 for research, 
development, test, and evaluation [RDT&E;] efforts on national 
and theater ballistic missile defense systems and technologies. 
This appropriation represents an overall decrease of $442,000 
to the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization [BMDO] RDT&E; 
budget request. The Committee also provides $258,880,000 for 
procurement of ballistic missile defense systems and 
components, a reduction of $150,500,000 to the budget request. 
Thus, the total appropriation for ballistic missile defense 
programs in this bill is $3,437,378,000. The Committee has made 
a number of adjustments to individual RDT&E; accounts.

    Theater high altitude area defense [THAAD].--The Committee 
recommendation provides $497,752,000 for continuation of the 
THAAD Demonstration/Validation Program. The Committee has 
deleted all funds requested for THAAD engineering and 
manufacturing development.
    Within the amount proposed for the THAAD Demonstration/
Validation Program, the Committee has deleted all $180,000,000 
budgeted for the purchase of 40 user operational evaluation 
system [UOES] missiles. The Committee has repeatedly raised 
questions about the proposal to purchase 40 THAAD missiles 
based on a single intercept test. The Committee has restored 
these deleted funds to the demonstration/validation program to 
ensure fully funded continuation of THAAD development.
    Patriot PAC-3.--The Committee recommendation provides a 
total increase of $45,000,000 for continuation of the Patriot 
PAC-3 engineering and manufacturing development program. A 
portion of the increase, $40,000,000, has been transferred from 
PAC-3 procurement as requested by the Department of Defense. 
The Committee directs that the additional increase of 
$5,000,000 be devoted only to engineering changes and the 
production of at least two PAC-3 missiles which will be 
dedicated to ADSAM testing. Additional Committee observations 
on this issue are outlined in the title IV overview section of 
this report.
    Family of systems engineering and integration [FoS E&I;].--
The Committee directs that $10,000,000 of the funds in this 
program element be dedicated to BMDO participation in the 
planning and conduct of ADSAM and ADAAM demonstrations. The 
Committee believes that the lessons learned could have long-
term benefits to both ballistic missile defense and air 
defense. Additional Committee observations on this issue are 
outlined in the title IV overview section of this report.
    BMD technical operations.--The Committee continues to 
support the efforts being performed at the Space and Missile 
Defense Command's Advanced Research Center [ARC]. The ARC has 
proven its worth in the development of both theater and 
national missile defense systems. Therefore, the Committee 
increases the amount available for the ARC by $7,000,000, 
providing a total of at least $14,756,000.

                           OTHER ADJUSTMENTS

    Program reductions and deferrals.--The following table 
lists program reductions recommended by the Committee to 
eliminate funds requested for programs which are not supported 
by firm requirements or out-year development and procurement 
funds; are premature until related, preliminary efforts are 
completed, and the results evaluated; are lower priority 
relative to other projects; are duplicative of other DOD 
projects; are increasing without a firm justification and out-
year transition commitments; or can be deferred without 
adversely affecting related program developments.

    Civil Air Patrol.--Funds made available to the Civil Air 
Patrol [CAP] in the fiscal year 1999 appropriation for Defense 
Department drug interdiction activities may be used for CAP's 
demand reduction program involving youth programs as well as 
operational and training drug reconnaissance missions for 
Federal, State, and local government agencies; for 
administrative costs, including the hiring of CAP employees; 
for travel and per diem expenses of CAP personnel in support of 
those missions; and for equipment needed for mission support or 
performance. The Air Force should waive reimbursement from 
Federal, State, and local government agencies for use of these 
funds.
    National Guard activities.--The Committee recognizes the 
valuable contributions the National Guard makes to the 
counterdrug effort and provides an additional $20,000,000.
    Marijuana eradication.--The Committee has provided an 
additional $6,000,000 for the conduct of marijuana eradication. 
These funds are to be used to address marijuana eradication 
shortfalls in the two States having the highest rate of outdoor 
cannabis cultivation as set forth in a 1996 report prepared by 
the DEA's Strategic Detection Unit of the domestic intelligence 
section.

Budget estimate, 1999...................................     201,500,000
Committee recommendation................................     201,500,000

    The Committee recommends $201,500,000, the budget request 
for the Central Intelligence Agency [CIA] retirement and 
disability system fund. The CIA Retirement Act of 1984 for 
Certain Employees (Public Law 88-643) authorized the 
establishment of a CIA retirement and disability system for a 
limited number of CIA employees and authorized the 
establishment and maintenance of a fund from which benefits 
would be paid to qualified beneficiaries.

    The Committee recommends $134,623,000 for the community 
management staff.

security education trust fund for continuation of this program.

     Kaho'olawe Island Conveyance, Remediation, and Environmental 
                         Restoration Trust Fund

Appropriations, 1998....................................     $35,000,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................      15,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      25,000,000

    The Committee recommends $25,000,000 for the Kaho'olawe 
Island conveyance, remediation, and environmental restoration 
trust fund.
    Since its inception, the Kaho'olawe program has been 
managed by the Commander of Naval Base Pearl Harbor, under the 
general direction of the Pacific Fleet. The base commanders and 
staff have done a fine job in ensuring that the Navy's 
responsibilities were met fully and that the project was 
steered through many difficult challenges toward completion. As 
more of the work tends toward cleanup instead of the policy 
implications of how this would be achieved, the Committee 
believes that those with the greatest expertise for managing 
such operations, the Pacific Division of the Navy's Facility 
Engineering Command, should oversee day to day responsibility 
for the cleanup efforts. This does not relieve the Pacific 
Fleet of its responsibility, but recognizes that PACDIV can and 
should direct the cleanup operation. The Committee expects 
PACDIV to work closely with the Pacific Fleet Commander in 
managing this process.

                               TITLE VIII

  COMPLIANCE WITH PARAGRAPH 7, RULE XVI, OF THE STANDING RULES OF THE 
                                 SENATE

    Paragraph 7 of rule XVI requires that Committee reports on 
general appropriations bills identify each Committee amendment 
to the House bill ``which proposes an item of appropriation 
which is not made to carry out the provisions of an existing 
law, a treaty stipulation, or an act or resolution previously 
passed by the Senate during that session.''
    Due to the early Committee action on the fiscal year 1999 
Defense appropriations bill, an original Senate bill was 
reported by the Appropriations Committee to the Senate.
    At the point when the Committee reports this measure, the 
Congress has not completed action on S. 2057, the Fiscal Year 
1999 Defense Authorization Act. As a consequence, the Committee 
has acted in good faith in its attempt to comply fully with 
requirements stipulated under paragraph 7, rule XVI.
    The Committee anticipates that Congress will authorize the 
amounts appropriated in this act.

COMPLIANCE WITH PARAGRAPH 7(C), RULE XXVI OF THE STANDING RULES OF THE 
                                 SENATE

ordered reported en bloc S. 2132, an original DOD 
appropriations bill, an original Legislative Branch 
appropriations bill, 1999, and an original Energy and Water 
Development appropriations bill, 1999, each subject to 
amendment and each subject to its budget allocations, by a 
recorded vote of 27-0, a quorum being present. The vote was as 
follows:

 COMPLIANCE WITH PARAGRAPH 12, RULE XXVI OF THE STANDING RULES OF THE 
                                 SENATE

    Paragraph 12 of rule XXVI requires that Committee reports 
on a bill or joint resolution repealing or amending any statute 
or part of any statute include ``(a) the text of the statute or 
part thereof which is proposed to be repealed; and (b) a 
comparative print of that part of the bill or joint resolution 
making the amendment and of the statute or part thereof 
proposed to be amended, showing by stricken-through type and 
italics, parallel columns, or other appropriate typographical 
devices the omissions and insertions which would be made by the 
bill or joint resolution if enacted in the form recommended by 
the committee.''
    The Committee bill as recommended contains no such 
provisions.
