                               BACKGROUND

                          Purpose of the Bill

    This bill makes appropriations for the military functions 
of the Department of Defense for the period October 1, 2014, 
through September 30, 2015. Functional areas include the pay, 
allowances, and support of military personnel, operation and 
maintenance of the forces, procurement of equipment and 
systems, and research, development, test and evaluation. 
Appropriations for foreign military assistance, military 
construction, family housing, nuclear weapons programs, and 
civil defense are provided in other bills.

                                Hearings

    The Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense began hearings 
on March 5, 2014, and concluded them on June 18, 2014, after 11 
separate sessions. The subcommittee heard testimony from 
representatives of the Department of Defense, other Federal 
agencies, and representatives of organizations.

                          Summary of the Bill

    The Committee recommendation of $542,771,568,000 includes 
funding to develop, maintain, and equip the military forces of 
the United States and for other purposes in nonemergency 
appropriations.
    The fiscal year 2015 budget request for activities funded 
in the Department of Defense appropriations bill totals 
$544,122,025,000 in new budget authority, including 
$59,868,030,000 in contingency funding for the Departments of 
State and Defense and $514,000,000 in mandatory spending.
    In fiscal year 2014, the Congress appropriated 
$565,093,629,000 for activities funded in this bill. This 
amount includes $480,066,687,000 in nonemergency appropriations 
and $85,026,942,000 in overseas contingency operations 
appropriations. The Committee recommends that funds requested 
for Coast Guard overseas contingency operations be appropriated 
directly to the Department of Homeland Security.
    The Committee recommendation in this bill is 
$22,322,061,000 below the amount provided in fiscal year 2014 
and $1,350,457,000 below the amount requested for fiscal year 
2015.

    The Committee has displayed recommended adjustments in 
tables presented under each appropriation account.
    These adjustments reflect the following Committee actions: 
elimination of funds requested for programs which are lower 
priority, duplicative, or not supported by firm requirements in 
out-year development or procurement appropriations; deletion of 
excess funds based on program delays or slow execution; 
addition of funds to reflect congressional priorities and to 
rectify shortfalls in the budget estimate; and implementation 
of recommendations in S. 2410, the National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015, as reported.
    The Committee directs that the funding increases outlined 
in these tables shall be provided only for the specific 
purposes indicated in the table.

                     CLASSIFIED PROGRAM ADJUSTMENTS

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

              Definition of Program, Project and Activity

    In fiscal year 2015, for purposes of the Balanced Budget 
and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 (Public Law 99-177), 
as amended, the term ``program, project and activity'' for 
appropriations contained in this act shall be defined as the 
most specific level of budget items identified in the 
Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2015 and the P-1 and 
R-1 budget justification documents as subsequently modified by 
congressional action. The following exception to the above 
definition shall apply: for the military personnel and 
operation and maintenance accounts the term ``program, project 
and activity'' is defined as the appropriations accounts 
contained in the Department of Defense Appropriations Act.
    In carrying out any Presidential sequestration, the 
Department of Defense and agencies shall conform to the 
definition for ``program, project and activity'' set forth 
above.

                         Reprogramming Guidance

    The Secretary of Defense is directed to continue to follow 
the reprogramming guidance for acquisition accounts as 
specified in the report accompanying the House version of the 
fiscal year 2008 Department of Defense Appropriations bill 
(House Report 110-279). For operation and maintenance accounts, 
the Secretary of Defense shall continue to follow the 
reprogramming guidelines specified in the conference report 
accompanying H.R. 3222, the Department of Defense 
Appropriations Act, 2008. The dollar threshold for 
reprogramming funds shall remain at $15,000,000 for operation 
and maintenance; $20,000,000 for procurement; and $10,000,000 
for research, development, test and evaluation.
    In addition, the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) 
is directed to continue to provide the congressional defense 
committees annual DD Form 1416 reports for titles I and II and 
quarterly, spreadsheet-based DD Form 1416 reports for service 
and defense-wide accounts in titles III and IV of this act. 
Reports for titles III and IV shall comply with guidance 
specified in the explanatory statement accompanying the 
Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2006. The Department 
shall continue to follow the limitation that prior approval 
reprogrammings are set at either the specified dollar threshold 
or 20 percent of the procurement or research, development, test 
and evaluation line, whichever is less. These thresholds are 
cumulative from the base for reprogramming value as modified by 
any adjustments. Therefore, if the combined value of transfers 
into or out of an operation and maintenance (O-1), a 
procurement (P-1), or a research, development, test and 
evaluation (R-1) line exceeds the identified threshold, the 
Secretary of Defense must submit a prior approval reprogramming 
to the congressional defense committees. In addition, 
guidelines on the application of prior approval reprogramming 
procedures for congressional special interest items are 
established elsewhere in this statement.

                         Committee Initiatives

    The Committee has included funding above the President's 
budget request for several programmatic initiatives which the 
Committee believes are of inherent value for national defense. 
In several cases, funds are restored for programs which were 
included in previous Department of Defense budget requests, and 
several are for programs that the Committee believes are 
necessary to improve defense even though they have not been 
included under the request formulated by the Department of 
Defense. For instance, the Committee provides additional 
research funding in the following areas: medical research, 
basic research, alternative energy, advanced metals and 
materials, military burn treatment, and traumatic brain injury 
and psychological health. The Committee believes additional 
research funding is warranted in these and other areas to 
ensure that the Department of Defense continues to pursue 
technological advances that are critical to our national 
defense. The Committee has also provided funding for programs 
that are chronically underfunded, such as range conservation; 
facility sustainment, restoration, and modernization; 
corrosion; and Defense Production Act purchases. The Committee 
directs that funds for these initiatives are to be 
competitively awarded or provided to programs that have 
received competitive awards in the past.

                      TOBACCO USE IN THE MILITARY

    Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable death in 
the United States, with more than 480,000 deaths attributable 
to cigarette smoking each year. While great strides have been 
made over the past 50 years to reduce tobacco use in the U.S. 
military, use among Armed Forces servicemembers remains higher 
than in the population as a whole. According to a 2011 
Department of Defense health behavior survey, 24 percent of 
servicemembers smoke, compared to 20 percent of civilians. The 
gap in smokeless tobacco use is even higher: according to the 
same Department survey, 12.8 percent of servicemembers used 
smokeless tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes, 
compared to 2.3 percent of the civilian population. Survey data 
show this usage is much higher among junior enlisted 
servicemembers than officers. A 2008 DOD study found that one 
in three military smokers began doing so after enlisting. The 
Institute of Medicine in 2009 noted that tobacco use costs the 
Department more than $1,600,000,000 annually in tobacco-related 
medical care, increased hospitalizations, and lost days of 
work. In addition to these costs, smoking undermines military 
readiness by compromising physical fitness in the short-term, 
and causing or contributing to serious health problems, such as 
lung cancer and delayed wound healing, in the long-term.
    The Department of Defense has affirmed the goal of a 
tobacco-free military, and has implemented a range of programs 
including public-education campaigns, the banning of all 
tobacco use during basic training, and the prohibition of 
tobacco use by instructors in the presence of students. 
However, inexpensive, readily available tobacco products remain 
a major driver of tobacco use, just as in the general 
population. In recognition of this, the Navy has led efforts to 
curb tobacco use and promote evidenced-based tobacco prevention 
strategies, such as eliminating the sale of tobacco in Navy 
commissaries and ending discounts on tobacco prices in Navy and 
Marine Corps exchanges in 2012. In 2012, the Air Force also set 
a goal of becoming tobacco-free. Earlier this year, the 
Secretary of Defense began a comprehensive review of the 
Department's tobacco policies.
    The Committee applauds these efforts and encourages the 
Department to continue to advance rapidly toward a tobacco-free 
military. In support of these goals, the Committee includes a 
provision directing the elimination of the price subsidy 
provided to tobacco products at military exchanges. This reform 
directs the Department to implement a consistent, verifiable 
price benchmark for tobacco products at exchanges, as recent 
surveys by the National Institutes of Health indicate that Army 
and Air Force exchange prices for cigarettes in practice to be 
between 14-25 percent lower than market price, despite 
Department of Defense Instruction 1330.9, which allows only a 5 
percent discount.

                             SEXUAL ASSAULT

    The Committee remains extremely concerned with the level of 
sexual assault in the military. The most recent report from the 
Department found cases of reported sexual assaults increased 50 
percent over the past year. The Committee applauds the 
Department initiative to rescreen and retrain recruiters and 
sexual assault prevention officers but believes more needs to 
be done to create a culture throughout the military in which 
sexual assault is not tolerated.
    The Committee also believes that victims of sexual assault 
should not be subjected to further alienation during the 
investigation and prosecution of their case. In January 2013, 
the Air Force began a Special Victims' Counsel pilot program 
that provides victims with a trained military lawyer to provide 
legal assistance and support as a case makes its way through 
the often arduous criminal justice process. The Committee 
commends the Air Force on this program and sees it as a 
positive step in giving victims the voice and support they 
deserve. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014 included 
$25,000,000 for the Department to implement the Special 
Victims' Counsel program across all the services. In order to 
build on this progress, the Committee includes an additional 
$25,000,000 in fiscal year 2015 for the continuation and 
expansion of the Special Victims' Counsel program.

                    ISRAELI MISSILE DEFENSE PROGRAMS

    The fiscal year 2015 budget request includes $272,775,000 
for Israeli missile defense programs within the Missile Defense 
Agency [MDA] budget, including $175,972,000 for the procurement 
of Iron Dome, which concludes a previously made U.S. commitment 
to provide $680,000,000 from fiscal years 2012 to 2015 for the 
Iron Dome program in response to a request from the Government 
of Israel. The Committee continues its strong, bi-partisan 
support for Israeli missile defense programs to ensure the 
fulfillment of Israel's missile defense needs and retention of 
Israel's qualitative military edge. The Committee notes the 
long-standing and successful contributions of U.S. industry 
towards meeting these goals, to include co-production of Arrow 
and David's Sling components; and, beginning in fiscal year 
2014, co-production of Iron Dome.
    Following submission of the fiscal year 2015 budget 
submission, the funding requirement for Iron Dome increased, 
and recommends an additional $175,000,000, which brings U.S. 
investment in Iron Dome production since fiscal year 2011 to 
over $1,000,000,000. The Committee notes that the Iron Dome 
program, which was developed by Israel solely with Israeli 
funding, is not subject to conditions of other joint Israeli-
U.S. cooperative missile defense programs, but rather is 
governed by a Memorandum of Agreement signed in March 2014. 
Therefore, the Committee directs that funds appropriated in 
fiscal year 2015 for Iron Dome be subject to the terms and 
provisions of this Memorandum of Agreement, as amended to 
reflect an agreed-upon implementation plan between MDA and the 
Israeli Missile Defense Organization [IMDO].
    In addition, the Committee directs that not more than 
$175,972,000 may be obligated or expended for Iron Dome in 
fiscal year 2015 until IMDO provides additional justification 
and documentation to the United States Department of Defense 
and MDA containing a timeline for Iron Dome expenditure of 
funds included in the fiscal year 2015 budget request and any 
additional funds recommended in fiscal year 2015, as well as a 
delivery schedule for items funded with these and prior year 
funds; and a report to MDA documenting full and complete 
delivery by Israeli industry and acceptance by U.S. industry 
suppliers of all technical data packages required for U.S. co-
production of Iron Dome. Further, this report shall document 
that all export licenses required to enable the release of 
classified technical data packages from the U.S. prime 
contractor to U.S. subcontractors are completed; a common cost 
model of Iron Dome components--to be jointly developed and 
agreed upon by MDA and IMDO--that includes recurring and non-
recurring engineering costs; actual Iron Dome production costs 
beginning in fiscal year 2013; and component lead-times and 
delivery schedules for each fiscal year thereafter.
    The Committee expects that to fully satisfy the 
requirements listed above, the Government of Israel will 
provide to MDA copies of signed and ratified contracts, 
subcontracts, and teaming arrangements between Israeli and U.S. 
industry for all Iron Dome co-production efforts. The Committee 
understands that moving forward with Iron Dome co-production 
will not negatively impact development, test and production 
schedules of the Arrow and David's Sling programs, which the 
Committee continues to fully support. Therefore, the Committee 
recommends an additional $173,800,000 for the Arrow and David's 
Sling programs.

              CVN 73 REFUELING AND COMPLEX OVERHAUL [RCOH]

    The fiscal year 2015 budget request includes no funds to 
continue the refueling and complex overhaul of CVN 73, USS 
George Washington. The Committee notes that $329,700,000 has 
previously been appropriated in the Shipbuilding and 
Conversion, Navy account for the CVN 73 RCOH to support the 
aircraft carrier's drydock induction in September 2016. With 
the fiscal year 2015 budget submission, the Navy announced its 
intention to make a decision with the fiscal year 2016 budget 
submission as to whether to refuel or prematurely retire CVN 
73. The Committee understands that deferring this decision 
creates significant programmatic and operational schedule 
delays for the RCOH.
    CVN 73 has more than 20 years of service life remaining, 
and the Navy cannot meet all U.S. combatant commanders' 
requirements with the current aircraft carrier fleet. 
Furthermore, U.S. law requires the Navy to maintain not less 
than 11 operational aircraft carries. The Committee notes that 
contrary to its previously stated position, the Navy has now 
decided to immediately continue CVN 73 RCOH with previously 
appropriated funds. The Committee fully supports this decision. 
Therefore, the Committee recommendation includes an additional 
$849,800,000 in the Navy's military personnel, operation and 
maintenance, shipbuilding, and other procurement accounts to 
fully fund the fiscal year 2015 requirement for CVN 73 RCOH, 
which will mitigate the schedule delays caused by the Navy's 
inaction. The Committee expects the Navy to include all 
remaining funds required to complete the CVN 73 RCOH in the 
Future Years Defense Program accompanying the fiscal year 2016 
budget submission.

      SHIP MODERNIZATION, OPERATIONS AND SUSTAINMENT FUND [SMOSF]

    The fiscal year 2015 budget request includes a new proposal 
by the Navy to remove 11 Ticonderoga-class guided missile 
cruisers and three amphibious dock landing ships from the 
operational fleet and lay them up for several years under a 
phased modernization plan. This proposal does not conform with 
direction provided in the Fiscal Year 2013 National Defense 
Authorization Act, the Fiscal Year 2014 National Defense 
Authorization Act, the Department of Defense Appropriations 
Act, 2013, and the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 
2014. The Committee notes that the Navy's proposal removes more 
Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruisers and amphibious dock 
landing ships from the operational fleet than previously 
proposed, relies on the congressional defense committees 
providing additional financial management and acquisition 
authorities, and the Navy's budget plan does not contain full 
funding in the outyears for this proposal.
    The Committee does not support the Navy's proposal due to 
concerns over the duration of the proposed lay-up period for 
several of the ships, the additional authorities required, and 
severe doubts as to whether the Navy would execute the phased 
modernization plan as proposed given the volatility in Navy 
budgets in recent years. Further, the Committee is perturbed by 
the Navy's disregard for congressional direction provided for 
two consecutive years. Therefore, the Committee recommendation 
denies the Navy's proposal and instead recommends a modified 
modernization plan that conforms with the Navy's proposal to 
expand the application of SMOSF funds to four additional 
Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruisers and an additional 
amphibious dock landing ship, while modifying the induction 
schedule for the SMOSF ships' modernization. The Committee 
notes that the SMOSF contains over $1,700,000,000, which is 
sufficient to fund this plan in the near-term and expects the 
Navy to budget for additional funds required in the mid- and 
long-term.

                      ENGAGEMENT ON ARCTIC ISSUES

    The Committee notes that the physical changes in the Arctic 
are unprecedented in both their rate and scope of change. In 
addition to the economic and social concerns, numerous studies, 
including the 2010 and 2014 Quadrennial Defense Reviews and the 
U.S. Navy Arctic Roadmap, have documented the significant 
impact that a rapidly changing Arctic has on national security, 
to include an increasing number of vessels expected to be 
operating in the Arctic Ocean in the summer and fall months.
    The Arctic Council has grown significantly in recent years 
with increased influence, visibility, and membership. As of May 
2013, China, Japan, Singapore, India, the Republic of Korea, 
and Italy have been granted observer status. In 2015, the 
United States will assume its 2-year Chair of the Arctic 
Council, succeeding Canada in this role. In view of the 
increasing significance and importance of the Arctic Council, 
and the United States' upcoming leadership in this body, the 
Committee urges the Secretary of Defense to continue to examine 
ways the Department can support engagement on Arctic issues, 
including funding for better Arctic Domain Awareness, mapping 
the U.S. Arctic waters, and enhanced observations and 
prediction of Arctic weather, ocean, and ice conditions.

            NATIONAL SECURITY IMPLICATIONS OF CLIMATE CHANGE

    The Committee commends the Department for its ongoing 
review of the effect of sea-level rise, shifting climate zones 
and severe weather events on the Department's bases worldwide. 
As the 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review notes, ``The impacts of 
climate change may increase the frequency, scale, and 
complexity of future missions, including defense support to 
civil authorities, while at the same time undermining the 
capacity of our domestic installations to support training 
activities.'' In light of the potential operational risks, the 
Under Secretary of Defense for Policy is directed to provide a 
report to the congressional defense committees within 90 days 
of enactment of this act identifying the most serious and 
likely climate-related security risks for each combatant 
command and the ways in which the combatant commands are 
integrating mitigation of these risks into their planning 
processes, including in the areas of humanitarian disaster 
relief, security cooperation, building partner capacity, and 
sharing best practices for mitigation of installation 
vulnerabilities. The report shall provide a description of the 
resources required for an effective response and the timeline 
of when those resources will be needed.

        CYBER SECURITY: ROLES OF FEDERAL RESEARCH ORGANIZATIONS

    The Committee remains concerned about continued ambiguities 
in the roles and responsibilities of various government 
entities with regard to our Nation's cyber defense. The 
Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, and Justice each 
have major roles to play in defining a cyber defense posture, 
as do State and local governments, academia, industry, and 
others.
    The Committee wishes to better understand the roles that 
can, or should, be played by Federally Funded Research and 
Development Centers [FFRDC], National Laboratories, University 
Affiliated Research Centers [UARC], the military service's 
research laboratories, and similar organizations, all of which 
could provide substantial expertise in cyber security, but 
whose actions in this regard must be carefully coordinated to 
most efficiently utilize the resources available to address 
this difficult topic.
    The Committee directs the Department to brief congressional 
defense and intelligence committees on the Department's 
governance construct to apportion, deconflict, and evaluate the 
cyber security research and development efforts among the 
Nation's FFRDCs, National Laboratories, UARCs, military 
research laboratories, and similar organizations, as well as 
whether expanding relationships with these organizations is 
warranted. To the extent practical, this brief should also 
address cyber security areas in which the Department of Defense 
recognizes that the Departments of Homeland Security and 
Justice have the leading role. Finally, the Committee 
recognizes the contributions of the Department in working with 
the Council of Governors on forming a Joint Action Plan for 
State-Federal Unity of Effort on Cybersecurity and encourages 
the Department to continue its collaborative efforts.

                      CYBER RED TEAM CAPABILITIES

    The identification of cyber vulnerabilities is critical to 
protecting the Nation from adversaries in the cyber domain and 
the Committee commends the Department's efforts to enhance and 
develop cyber threat emulation capabilities through the use of 
cyber red teams. The Committee also supports efforts of the 
Department of Defense and U.S. Cyber Command to create a Cyber 
Mission Force consisting of several categories of cyber teams 
and urges the Department to consider recognizing a formal 
requirement for the expertise and competencies resident within 
cyber red teams. Moreover, the Committee is concerned that 
existing cyber red team capacity be maintained during the Cyber 
Mission Force transition to meet the increasing demand for 
cyber threat emulation, training, and skill development. 
Accordingly, the Department of Defense, Services, and National 
Guard shall not reduce cyber red team capacity or unit 
strength. In addition, the Committee directs the Department to 
brief the defense subcommittee, no later than 90 days after 
enactment of this act, regarding the current and future 
requirements for cyber red team capabilities and its 
initiatives to retain and enhance cyber red team capacity.

                  DEFENSE CYBER TRAINING AND EDUCATION

    The Committee understands that U.S. Cyber Command and other 
Department of Defense elements have made substantial progress 
in maturing the military's plans to incorporate cyber 
requirements into training and doctrine. The Department's 2011 
Strategy for Operating in Cyberspace stated that continued 
education and training will be hallmarks of the cyber 
workforce. The Committee directs the Secretary of Defense to 
report to congressional defense committees, within 180 days of 
the enactment of this act, on a plan for its cyber education 
program for officers and enlisted personnel. The report shall 
include definitions of military occupational specialties/rating 
specialties for each service along with the corresponding level 
of training, education, qualifications, and/or certificates 
required for each specialty, covering the full continuum of 
professional development from initial entry training to senior 
service war colleges.

            CYBER RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT WITH UNIVERSITIES

    The National Security Agency [NSA], in coordination with 
the Department of Homeland Security, currently sponsors the 
National Centers of Academic Excellence in Information 
Assurance Education and Information Assurance Research. Within 
the Information Systems Security Program [ISSP], the NSA 
conducts classified cyber-related research and development 
program through partnerships with certain universities. The 
Committee understands that these relationships with 
universities have proven productive. Accordingly, the Committee 
recommends an additional $7,500,000 to support these 
relationships with academia.

                        AWARD AND INCENTIVE FEES

    In 2006, the Government Accountability Office [GAO] 
reviewed 50 programs and determined that between April 2006 and 
October 2010, the Department of Defense could save in excess of 
$450,000,000 by not offering contractors a second opportunity 
to win unearned fees, and save more than $68,000,000 by using 
more clearly defined determination criteria. After the 
Department of Defense updated its guidance, the GAO issued a 
follow-up report in May 2009 that highlighted where 
implementation of the new award/incentive fee guidance resulted 
in savings. The follow-up report also recommended that the 
Secretary of Defense further promote the application of the 
updated guidance. To better understand the extent to which the 
Department of Defense has implemented the updated guidance, the 
Committee directs the GAO to review the original 50 programs to 
determine the actual amount of unearned award/incentive fees 
that were saved. The Committee further directs the GAO to 
assess additional policy changes that could be implemented to 
guarantee that contractors are only awarded performance bonuses 
that they have earned.

                    FIRE AND BUILDING SAFETY ACCORD

    The Committee commends the Marine Corps Trademark and 
Licensing Office for adopting a requirement to abide by the 
Accord for Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh. The 
Committee includes a general provision implementing this 
standard across all the services' exchanges for garments 
produced by the exchanges' private label brands and to the 
extent practicable, for garments provided by vendors and 
suppliers.
    The Committee includes a second general provision directing 
the trademark and licensing offices of the services to adopt a 
requirement that its licensees which manufacture in Bangladesh 
also become signatories to the Accord or otherwise abide by its 
conditions. Further, in order to better understand the 
magnitude of Department of Defense purchases from businesses 
worldwide which may have similar safety and labor violations, 
the Secretary of Defense is directed to provide annual reports, 
no later than March 1 of each year, to the congressional 
defense committees, which disclose all factories producing 
private label and direct-import garments sold in the commissary 
and exchange systems, including factory name, address, and 
brand(s), private label(s), licensee(s) or retail supplier(s) 
sourcing from that factory from the prior year.

                          HUMAN RIGHTS VETTING

    Section 8056 prohibits training, equipment, or other 
assistance for the members of a unit of a foreign security 
force if the Secretary of Defense has credible information that 
the unit has committed a gross violation of human rights. In a 
modification from current law, the Committee recommendation 
limits the exception in subsection (b) and broadens the waiver 
authority in subsection (c). Section 8056 does not require, and 
the Committee does not expect, a unit or members of such unit 
to be vetted for eligibility to receive such training, 
equipment, or other assistance prior to the Secretary's use of 
the waiver authority in subsection (c).

                    NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY REPORTS

    The Committee directs the National Security Agency [NSA] to 
provide to the congressional intelligence committees, and the 
Senate Committee on the Judiciary, and the House Committee on 
the Judiciary, no later than 90 days after enactment of this 
act:
  --A report, unclassified to the greatest extent possible, 
        setting forth:
    --For the last 5 years, on an annual basis, the number of 
            records acquired by NSA as part of the bulk 
            telephone metadata program authorized by the 
            Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, pursuant 
            to section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act, and the 
            number of such records that have been reviewed by 
            NSA personnel in response to a query of such 
            records; and
    --To the extent possible, an estimate of the number of 
            records of United States persons that have been 
            acquired by NSA as part of the bulk telephone 
            metadata program and the number of such records 
            that have been reviewed by NSA personnel in 
            response to a query.
  --A report, unclassified to the greatest extent possible, and 
        with a classified annex if necessary, describing all 
        NSA bulk collection activities, including when such 
        activities began, the cost of such activities, what 
        types of records have been collected in the past, what 
        types of records are currently being collected, and any 
        plans for future bulk collection.
  --A report, unclassified to the greatest extent possible, and 
        with a classified annex if necessary, including a list 
        of terrorist activities that were disrupted, in whole 
        or in part, with the aid of information obtained 
        through NSA's telephone metadata program and whether 
        this information could have been promptly obtained by 
        other means.

                        GUANTANAMO BAY DETAINEES

    The Committee notes the continuing costs associated with 
maintaining the detention facilities at Naval Station, 
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Based on cost figures provided by the 
Department of Defense, the annual cost to house a detainee at 
the facility on Guantanamo Bay is approximately $2,768,902 per 
year. According to a May 2013 GAO report, the annual cost to 
incarcerate an individual at a maximum security Bureau of 
Prisons facility within the United States is approximately 
$78,000 per year. The cost to house a detainee at a U.S. 
military detention facility is comparable to that of a U.S. 
civilian facility at an annual estimated cost of $78,696.
    The mission for detention of individuals at Guantanamo Bay 
was never envisioned by the military to be long-term. 
Facilities that were originally built to be temporary have 
outlived their service life. For example, the current medical 
clinic used to manage the healthcare of an aging detainee 
population currently functions with inadequate space and is 
lacking proper medical treatment equipment. The Committee notes 
that the base hospital is the only service facility for chronic 
care. Due to security considerations, the hospital must be used 
after hours or closed down during daytime operations to 
accommodate emergencies for detainees. The estimated cost to 
modify and develop a new medical facility is approximately 
$11,000,000.
    Another example of a facility operating beyond its intended 
usage is the temporary troop quarters housing service members 
who are supporting the detention mission. In many instances the 
rooms are overcrowded and continue to deteriorate. The intense 
year-round heat and humidity are burdening air handling 
equipment, degrading metal support infrastructure and corroding 
plumbing infrastructure at an accelerated rate. Many of these 
temporary facilities are a disservice to the men and women who 
carry out a challenging mission. Replacement housing facilities 
would cost over $100,000,000 in military construction funds, 
further raising the costs on sustaining a facility that was not 
intended to be permanent.
    As fiscal budget pressures for the Department continue, 
combined with the aging infrastructure used to house and treat 
detainees, the Committee believes continuing the detention 
mission at Guantanamo Bay will continue to rise and become cost 
prohibitive, especially as further reductions in the detention 
population would not lead to substantial cost savings in 
infrastructure or operations. Greater effort must be made to 
find a longer term solution to the detention mission.

                                TITLE I

                           MILITARY PERSONNEL

    Funds appropriated under this title provide the resources 
required for basic pay, retired pay accrual, employers' 
contribution for Social Security taxes, basic allowance for 
subsistence, basic allowance for housing, special and incentive 
pays, permanent change of station travel, and other personnel 
costs for uniformed members of the Armed Forces.
    The President's fiscal year 2015 budget requests a total of 
$128,957,593,000 for military personnel appropriations. This 
request funds an Active component end strength of 1,308,600 and 
a Reserve component end strength of 820,800.

                      SUMMARY OF COMMITTEE ACTION

    The Committee recommends military personnel appropriations 
totaling $128,430,543,000 for fiscal year 2015. This is 
$527,050,000 below the budget estimate.
    Committee recommended military personnel appropriations for 
fiscal year 2015 are summarized below:

                      Military Personnel Overview

    Retired Pay Accrual Shortfall.--In February 2014, Congress 
reversed a provision in the Bipartisan Budget Act (Public Law 
113-67) that reduced the annual cost-of-living adjustment 
[COLA] for military retirees under the age of 62 by one 
percent. In order to follow through on this COLA adjustment and 
fully fund the military retirement accounts in fiscal year 
2015, the Committee includes an additional $507,500,000 
throughout the military personnel accounts.
    Reserve Component Budget Reporting.--The Committee 
continues its requirement for the Department to provide a semi-
annual detailed report to the congressional defense committees 
showing transfers between subactivities within the military 
personnel appropriation. Reports shall be submitted not later 
than 30 days following the end of the second quarter and 30 
days following the end of the fiscal year.
    Unobligated Balances.--A Government Accountability Office 
analysis of past year obligation rates shows that the services 
continue to underexecute their military personnel accounts. Due 
to excess unobligated balances, the Committee recommends a 
total reduction of $761,620,000 from the fiscal year 2015 
military personnel accounts.
    Career Intermission Pilot Program.--The Career Intermission 
Pilot Program presents a unique opportunity for servicemembers 
to take a career intermission, without penalty, before 
returning to active duty service to continue their military 
career. The program has proven to be a valuable retention tool 
for the Department as it provides servicemembers with the 
chance to address a multitude of personal or professional 
matters, such as caring for a family member with a disability 
or illness, or pursuing higher education. The Committee 
understands that the Navy is currently the only service 
utilizing this pilot program and encourages the Army and Air 
Force to use this effective career management tool. To better 
understand the effectiveness of this pilot program, the 
Committee directs the Government Accountability Office to 
provide the congressional defense committees a report within 90 
days after enactment of this act on the impacts of this program 
on retention within the services. The report should examine how 
the program has been implemented by the Navy and what elements 
can be implemented by the Army and Air Force in order to 
maximize the program's usefulness to servicemembers.
    Enlistment of DACA Recipients.--The Committee is concerned 
that immigrants who have received Deferred Action for Childhood 
Arrivals [DACA] are not authorized to enlist in the Armed 
Forces, which has a negative impact on military recruitment and 
readiness. Under 10 U.S.C. section 504, Service Secretaries can 
authorize the enlistment of non-citizens when it is ``vital to 
the national interest.'' Enlisting DACA recipients would allow 
the Armed Forces to access an expanded pool of recruits. To be 
eligible for DACA, an individual must have entered the United 
States as a child; graduated from secondary school, obtained a 
general equivalency degree, or be currently enrolled in school; 
and not have a serious criminal record. DACA recipients are, by 
definition, educated and integrated into American society, and 
many have shown an interest in and aptitude for military 
service through participation in Junior Reserve Officers' 
Training Corps [JROTC]. The requirements to qualify for DACA 
are similar to those for legislation known as the DREAM 
(Development Relief and Education of Alien Minors) Act. In 
2011, Dr. Clifford Stanley, then-Undersecretary of Defense for 
Personnel and Readiness, testified in support of the DREAM Act, 
noting it would allow the Department of Defense ``to expand the 
market of high-quality youth to the advantage of military 
recruitment and readiness.'' In 2010, then-Secretary of Defense 
Robert Gates said the DREAM Act ``will result in improved 
recruitment results and attendant gains in unit manning and 
military performance.'' Accordingly, the Committee urges the 
Secretary of Defense, not later than 90 days after enactment of 
this act, to authorize the enlistment of DACA recipients 
pursuant to 10 U.S.C. Section 504.
    Enlistment of Individuals with Disabilities in the Armed 
Forces.--In Senate report 113-85, the Committee directed the 
Department of the Air Force to study the feasibility and 
advisability of permitting individuals with auditory 
impairment, including deafness, to access as officers in the 
Armed Forces. The Committee is disappointed in the quality of 
the response from the Department on this issue and questions 
the methodology used to conduct these studies in which normal 
hearing individuals used hearing-loss simulation devices to 
approximate the effects of impaired hearing.
    The Committee strongly believes that the Department should 
examine more fully and more accurately the viability of 
allowing individuals with disabilities to enlist and directs 
the Department to provide a report to the congressional defense 
committees within 120 days of enactment of this act that 
includes an examination of which military occupational 
specialties are best suited for individuals with disabilities. 
The Committee further directs the Department to study this 
issue, utilizing an independent agency with expertise in 
disability law and accommodations to structure and supervise 
the study, and using individuals with actual disabilities, who 
have adapted and modified their way of life to their 
disability, in order to gain a more accurate reflection of how 
such individuals would fare in fitness-for-duty tests.

     REPROGRAMMING GUIDANCE FOR OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE ACCOUNTS

    The Committee directs the Secretary of Defense to submit 
the Base for Reprogramming (DD Form 1414) for each of the 
fiscal year 2015 appropriation accounts not later than 60 days 
after the enactment of this act. The Secretary of Defense is 
prohibited from executing any reprogramming or transfer of 
funds for any purpose other than originally appropriated until 
the aforementioned report is submitted to the House and Senate 
Appropriations Committees.

defense agencies in excess of $15,000,000 shall be subject to 
prior approval reprogramming procedures.

                   OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE OVERVIEW

    Civilian Workforce.--The civilian workforce has faced many 
challenges over the past several years. In 2013, the Department 
took specific action to release temporary employees, freeze 
hiring, and furlough most of its civilian workforce due to 
sequestration. The Committee expects the Department to maintain 
a stable, effective, right-sized civilian cadre. The Committee 
recognizes the critical role that the civilian workforce plays 
every day in ensuring the mission success of the Armed Forces 
and fully funds the 1 percent pay raise for civilian personnel 
as requested.
    Workforce Management.--The Committee supports a workforce 
management plan that is fair for all sectors of the workforce. 
Decisions on sourcing new work, expanding existing 
responsibilities, or transferring functions currently performed 
by civilian personnel or contractors to performance by military 
personnel must not proceed without comparing the costs 
according to the Department's own methodology. Therefore, 
decisions whether to assign new work which is not inherently 
governmental, closely associated with inherently governmental 
functions, or critical to military, civilian, or contractor 
personnel, shall be based on the results of the costing 
methodology laid out in Department of Defense Instruction 
[DODI] 7041.04. Additionally, before converting functions 
performed by civilian personnel or contractors to performance 
by military personnel that are not required by law or 
regulation to be performed by military personnel, the 
Department shall adhere to its own costing methodology laid out 
in Department of Defense Instruction [DODI] 7041.04.
    Contract Services Spending.--Recent analysis by the 
Government Accountability Office found that the Department of 
Defense failed to adhere to the enacted limitations on 
contracted services in the National Defense Authorization Act 
for Fiscal Year 2012 (Public Law 112-81), exceeding the 
limitations by more than $1,000,000,000 in fiscal year 2012. 
Moreover, guidance for adherence to the extension of the 
limitations for fiscal year 2014 has yet to be issued. The 
Committee is concerned that the Department does not have 
adequate policies, procedures, and controls in place to enforce 
limitations on the annual amounts expended on contracted 
services.
    The Committee is also concerned that not all contracted 
services are being subjected to the spending limitations 
because of the exclusion of contracted services involving 
Economy Act transfers between and within Department of Defense 
components. Also, because of the disparity between the levels 
of contracted services captured in the Inventory of Contracts 
for Services, required under section 2330a of title 10, United 
States Code, and what the Department budgets for contracted 
services, the Committee concludes that the Department does not 
deliberately plan for most contracted services. The Committee 
urges a review of the efforts by the Under Secretary of Defense 
(Comptroller) and the Department's financial management and 
acquisition communities to implement effective control 
mechanisms for contracted services spending.
    Overestimation of Civilian Workforce.--While the Committee 
supports a strong civilian workforce, the fiscal year 2015 
budget request substantially overestimates the number of 
civilians that will be employed during fiscal year 2015. 
Through analysis directed by the Committee during the budget 
review, each service and defense agency identified the current 
estimate for civilian full time equivalents [FTE] that will be 
on the books in fiscal year 2014 and it is far short of what 
was planned for in the budget request. The Committee 
understands the difficulties in predicting civilian FTE levels, 
particularly during the past several turbulent years. However, 
the Committee cannot ignore that the Army, Navy and Air Force 
are estimating to finish fiscal year 2014 thousands of civilian 
FTEs lower than each service anticipated. Therefore, the 
Committee recommends reductions in fiscal year 2015 due to 
overestimation of civilian FTE targets.
    Quarterly End Strength Report.--In its analysis of civilian 
personnel numbers, the Committee used the ``Congressional End 
Strength Quarterly Report for DOD'' dated March 22, 2014, to 
inform its review. Each service was asked to comment on the 
data provided in their operation and maintenance appropriation 
in an attempt to validate the numbers in the column titled 
``Number of people paid.'' Unfortunately, not one service was 
able to validate the numbers on the quarterly report. 
Therefore, the Committee directs that the information on the 
quarterly end strength report be validated by each service and 
the Office of the Secretary of Defense in the case of Defense-
Wide appropriations, prior to submission.
    Voluntary Military Education Programs--Tracking Outcomes.--
The Committee is concerned about the lack of information 
available on the outcomes of students receiving Tuition 
Assistance and My Career Advancement Account [MyCAA] benefits. 
Therefore, the Committee directs the Department to submit a 
report tracking such outcomes of each of these programs. The 
report shall be submitted on or before June 1, 2015, and shall 
include, but not be limited to, the following data totals for 
calendar year 2014: an aggregate graduation rate, loan default 
rate, and average indebtedness. Additionally, the report shall 
then disaggregate the data to show these same metrics by 
sector: public, private for-profit, and private not-for-profit. 
Finally, the report shall include the percentage of 
servicemembers utilizing the Top-Up program for voluntary 
military education and the average dollar amount of usage. The 
Department is also encouraged to make an effort to gather data 
on the jobs attained after graduation, specifically whether 
those jobs can be reasonably said to be in the field of study 
identified in the students' education plans.
    Voluntary Military Education Programs--Third Party 
Audits.--The Committee recognizes the importance of voluntary 
military education programs to the continued education of our 
men and women in uniform and their spouses. In recent years, 
the programs have grown in popularity among servicemembers and, 
as such, in cost to the Federal Government. Despite recent 
efforts to improve oversight, the Committee notes that 
Department of Defense attempts to obtain key information needed 
to assess the quality of nearly 3,000 schools servicemembers 
attend have been largely unsuccessful.
    The Committee is concerned about the number and 
transparency of third party audits of schools within the 
Department's Tuition Assistance program. In light of these 
concerns, the Committee commends the Department for its 
decision to develop a new Statement of Work for third party 
audits for execution under a new contract which will strengthen 
protections for, and the quality of education provided to, the 
military community. Since previous third party assessments 
lacked coherence and specificity, and did not fully consider 
the qualifications needed by the contractor conducting the 
assessments before awarding the contract, the Committee 
encourages the Secretary of Defense to develop a clear, written 
plan for third party assessments of schools. As part of that 
plan, the Department is urged to (1) develop clear, measurable 
questions to guide the assessments and (2) require that the 
entity or entities conducting the assessments have the 
necessary skills, expertise and experience to effectively 
assess the schools.
    Joint Prisoner of War/Missing in Action Accounting Command 
[JPAC].--The Government Accountability Office's 2014 Annual 
Report titled, ``Additional Opportunities to Reduce 
Fragmentation, Overlap, and Duplication and Achieve Other 
Financial Benefits'' (GAO-14-343SP), published April 8, 2014, 
identified the Prisoner of War/Missing in Action [POW/MIA] 
mission as an area of high risk. The report said, ``The 
Department of Defense should minimize overlapping and 
duplicative efforts by examining options to reduce 
fragmentation and clarify guidance on roles and 
responsibilities among the eight organizations that account for 
missing persons and improve the effectiveness of the mission.''
    A provision was included in S. 2410, the National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015, as reported, making 
modifications to requirements for accounting for members of the 
Armed Forces and Department of Defense civilian employees 
listed as missing (section 911). Among several new requirements 
and authorizations, the provision establishes a new 
``designated defense agency'' to have responsibility over the 
POW/MIA accounting community. The Committee's recommendation is 
consistent with section 911 and realigns funding among 
Operation and Maintenance, Navy; Operation and Maintenance, Air 
Force; and Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide. The funding 
for the new defense agency is transferred to an undistributed 
line in Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide until a budget 
line item for the new defense agency is established. The 
Department is directed to include the new defense agency as a 
separate line in Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide in its 
fiscal year 2016 request.
    Finally, section 1509 of the Fiscal Year 2010 National 
Defense Authorization Act directed the Department of Defense to 
ensure that at least 200 missing persons are accounted for 
annually beginning in fiscal year 2015. The Committee 
encourages the Department to utilize the authorities 
established in section 911 of S. 2410 to partner with research 
universities with expertise in archeology and remains recovery 
to assist in becoming compliant with National Defense 
Authorization Act mandates.
    Increasing Transparency of Federal Spending on Grants.--The 
Department of Defense reports its obligation of funds data by 
Grant, Cooperative Agreement, Technology Investment Agreement, 
and Other-Assistance-Award to the public at the USAspending.gov 
Web site, as required by the Federal Funding Accountability and 
Transparency Act [FFATA] of 2006. The Transparency Act requires 
data on each obligation to be publicly accessible within 30 
days of the date of obligation at the Web site.
    On May 9, 2014, the President signed the Data 
Accountability and Transparency Act of 2014 (DATA Act) (Public 
Law 113-101). The purposes of the DATA Act are to expand the 
Transparency Act accountability to include agency expenditures 
linked to reported awards, simplify and streamline reporting 
requirements, reduce compliance costs, and hold agencies 
accountable for data quality. The Committee directs the 
Department of Defense to provide adequate resources to comply 
with the new requirements of the DATA Act.
    Security Clearance Investigations.--The Committee is 
concerned about the Office of Personnel Management's [OPM's] 
screening process of Federal employees and believes that 
additional steps are needed to restore confidence in the 
security clearance process. Therefore, the Committee directs 
the Secretary of Defense to submit a report to the 
congressional defense committees not later than 120 days after 
the enactment of this act, on the feasibility and costs 
associated with the Department of Defense assuming the 
responsibilities of conducting security clearance investigation 
activities for all Department of Defense personnel.
    The Committee also encourages the Secretary of Defense to 
consider measures to optimize and streamline data sharing and 
best practices for continuous personnel security evaluations 
and threat analysis.
    Information Technology.--The military services' operation 
and maintenance requests for fiscal year 2015 include over 
$11,000,000,000 for Information Technology [IT]. Robust funding 
for information technology is justified in the current 
environment. According to the IT budget materials, ``[The] 
primary goals are to make the Department more effective and 
more secure against cyber threats and vulnerabilities.'' The 
budget materials continue, ``A secondary, but very important 
goal is to reduce the cost associated with the Department's 
overall information technology infrastructure by simplifying, 
centralizing, and automating infrastructure at the enterprise 
level.''
    Over the past several years, the services have consistently 
endeavored to find savings related to the IT budget's secondary 
goal. They have pursued initiatives such as data center and 
server consolidations, enterprise e-mail, and consolidated 
software and hardware purchasing.
    The Committee commends the Department for efforts to 
simplify, centralize and automate IT infrastructure. However, 
the Committee found a number of discrepancies where the 
resources reflected in the IT budget did not correlate to the 
operation and maintenance budget justification. The Committee 
recommends reductions based on that analysis. Finally, the 
recommendation includes additional reductions to the operation 
and maintenance accounts to compel further review of non-cyber 
IT requirements (those not related to the defense of DOD 
networks) and eliminate duplication.
    Operation and Maintenance Budget Justification.--The 
Committee commends the Department for the improvements in the 
Operation and Maintenance [O&M;] budget materials made over the 
past several years. To further inform the congressional review, 
the Committee directs the following actions:
  --The Department shall include the OP-8B: Total Civilian 
        Personnel Costs for every appropriation as a part of 
        the President's budget justification.
  --Every subactivity group in O&M; that funds recruiting and 
        advertising activities shall include the budget profile 
        broken out by recruiting and advertising for the prior 
        year, current year, and budget year as a part of the 
        performance criteria in the OP-5 exhibit. The Army 
        National Guard shall include three categories broken 
        out separately: recruiting, marketing, and retention. 
        The Army National Guard is further directed to break 
        out funding profiles for specific programs under each 
        category providing more specific information about what 
        is funded in each. Among other line items, one under 
        marketing shall be sports sponsorships.
  --The Army shall add a new table in the performance criteria 
        of the OP-5 exhibit for SAG 115 Land Forces Operations 
        Support that shows the number of funded Combat Training 
        Center Rotations by location.
  --The Office of Economic Adjustment's budget documentation in 
        O&M; Defense-Wide shall include the budget profile of 
        each major program for the prior year, current year, 
        and budget year as a part of the performance criteria 
        in the OP-5 exhibit. Examples of major programs would 
        be Program Assistance, Defense Industry Adjustment, and 
        Guam.
  --The Defense Information System Agency's [DISA] budget 
        documentation in O&M; Defense-Wide is currently a 
        culmination of net adjustments within section III C of 
        the OP-5 (Financial Summary Reconciliation and 
        Increases and Decreases) that is difficult to analyze. 
        Future OP-5 exhibits for DISA shall break down 
        adjustments into more discrete items rather than 
        providing numerous net adjustments in section III C.
  --The Defense Security Service's budget documentation in O&M; 
        Defense-Wide shall break out funding for the Defense 
        Insider Threat Management and Analysis Center [DITMAC]/
        Continuous Evaluation program. This category shall be a 
        new separate program discussed in section I of the OP-
        5, Description of Operations Financed, in section III, 
        the Financial Summary as a new BA Subactivity, and 
        broken out in the Reconciliation of Increases and 
        Decreases if changes occur to this program from the 
        current year to the budget year.
    Extremity Protection Program.--The Committee encourages the 
Department of Defense to fully fund the Cold Weather Protective 
Equipment--Extremity Protection Program in order to sustain 
research and development programs, acquisition requirements and 
to maintain a basic combat capability in protective equipment 
for servicemembers.
    Advanced Trauma Training Program for National Guard and 
Reserve.--The Committee recognizes the valuable support 
universities, hospitals, and other military partners provide by 
offering civilian-based emergency response trauma training to 
sustain medics' and medical providers' capabilities of the 
National Guard Enhanced Response Forces Packages [CERFP], 
National Guard Homeland Response Forces [NGHRF], and the Army 
Reserve Consequence Management Response Forces [CCMRF]. The 
Committee encourages the National Guard and Reserve to continue 
pursuing state-of-the-art trauma training with these civilian 
partners, thus maintaining unit medical readiness postures at 
optimum levels as military healthcare providers in CERFPs, 
NGHRFs, and CCMRFs maintain their individual skills to respond 
effectively to emergency incidents on the homeland. 
Furthermore, in order to minimize the civilian-military 
operational gaps in the event of a catastrophic incident, the 
Committee also encourages the development of enhanced 
preparedness medical training programs focusing on mass 
casualty triage, advanced disaster life support, advanced 
hazardous material life support, emergency dental, and 
psychological health by increasing civilian-based advanced 
trauma expertise gained through day-to-day experiences and 
medical research programs.
    Defense Generator and Rail Equipment Center.--The Defense 
Generator and Rail Equipment Center [DGRC] is an Army facility 
located at Hill Air Force Base, Utah. The Committee understands 
that this facility has serious deficiencies needing significant 
renovations including some necessary to address health and 
safety concerns. Further, while DGRC is currently located 
within the boundaries of Hill AFB, the Committee is aware that 
after completion of the Enhanced Use Lease project currently 
underway at Hill AFB, DGRC will be located outside of the base 
boundaries and would be required to provide its own force 
protection which would increase operational costs. The 
Committee urges the Secretary of the Army to work directly with 
the Secretary of the Air Force and relevant State and local 
stakeholders to address concerns raised by the current DGRC 
location and to reach an agreement acceptable to all parties on 
the future status and location of the DGRC. The Committee is 
concerned that spending funds to perform non-safety related 
renovations of the DGRC before such a consensus is reached 
would not be a good use of limited resources and taxpayer 
funds. Therefore, the Committee encourages the Secretary of the 
Army to limit renovations to those required only for health and 
safety until such an agreement is reached and directs the Army 
to notify the congressional defense committees of all safety-
related renovations performed, including a justification for 
why the renovations are required.
    Electricity Reliability at Military Installations.--The 
Committee commends the Department and services for their 
continuing efforts to reduce installation energy costs, which 
total approximately $4,000,000,000 annually. The increasing use 
of Energy Savings Performance Contracts and Utility Energy 
Service Contracts has been particularly important in achieving 
energy and financial savings with less up-front Federal 
investment. To further augment energy efficiency efforts, the 
Committee directs the Secretary of Defense to conduct a review 
of the value and time duration of ``electricity reliability'' 
and its use in making energy efficiency project decisions on 
military installations. The review should factor in any need 
for redundancy and include an assessment of how the value of 
electricity reliability could be incorporated in cost-benefit 
calculations for Power Purchase Agreements, performance 
contracting, and other utility power purchases. The Committee 
directs the secretary to report to the congressional defense 
committees on the findings of the review within 90 days of 
enactment of this act.
    Fly America Act.--The Committee commends the Department for 
its efforts to honor the Fly America Act as the drawdown in 
Afghanistan continues. The Committee directs the Secretary of 
Defense to provide a report to the congressional defense 
committees, no later than 30 days after the enactment of this 
act, detailing how many foreign flagged fixed-wing and rotary-
wing aircraft are currently under contract in Afghanistan for 
airlift services, and a description of the Department's plans 
to drawdown foreign carriers in advance of the cessation of 
military operations in Afghanistan.
    Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps.--The Committee is 
concerned about the shrinking number of American youth eligible 
for military service. For nearly 100 years, the Junior Reserve 
Officer Training Corps [JROTC] has promoted citizenship and 
community service amongst America's youth and has been an 
important means through which youth can learn about military 
service in the United States. But evidence suggests that some 
high school JROTC programs face closure due to funding tied to 
program enrollment levels, adversely impacting certain, 
particularly rural, populations. Therefore, the Committee 
directs the Secretary of Defense, in consultation with the 
services, to submit a report to the congressional defense 
committees no later than 180 days after the enactment of this 
act on recent trends in JROTC participation at both the 
individual and school level, as well as any plans to ensure 
adequate representation of all regions in the United States to 
ensure the capabilities of the Armed Forces to recruit from a 
diverse background to sustain the all-volunteer force.

    Automated Biometrics Identification System [ABIS].--The 
Committee recognizes that the ABIS has an enduring requirement 
and therefore encourages the Army to consider funding this 
capability in the base operation and maintenance budget.
    Productivity Enhancement Program.--The Department of 
Defense's organic depot maintenance capability is vital to our 
military's sustainment infrastructure. The Committee encourages 
the Secretary of the Army to modernize the organic depots' 
Electronic Test and Measurement Equipment [ET&ME;] to allow cost 
savings in future maintenance and calibration expenditures.
    Ballistic Protective Eyewear.--The Committee supports 
efforts to establish a military combat eye protection program 
in the Department of Defense to ensure a high standard of 
performance for all military-issue protective eyewear. The 
Committee encourages the rapid fielding of ballistic protective 
eyewear for all servicemembers so they can receive best-in-
class eye protection for a range of threats while deployed and 
in training.
    Body Armor.--The Committee recognizes the importance of 
ensuring that deployed soldiers have the lightest and most 
advanced body armor available to enhance mission performance 
and save lives. Modernizing the body armor inventory through 
replenishment will help the manufacturing base continue the 
development and manufacturing of more advanced body armor our 
soldiers need. Therefore, the Committee provides an additional 
$80,000,000 for this initiative and encourages the Secretary of 
the Army to develop and implement a plan to replace and 
refurbish expired body armor.
    Soldier for Life.--The Committee has been made aware of an 
initiative developed by the Chief of Staff of the Army called 
``Soldier for Life,'' which is currently being funded within 
existing resources. Soldier for Life provides servicemembers, 
veterans and family members with the skills, knowledge, and 
tools required to successfully reintegrate into civilian life. 
The Committee encourages the Secretary of the Army to continue 
these types of initiatives and properly budget for them in 
future requests.
    Army Force Structure and Installation Alignment.--The 
Army's active component is set to decline from a peak of 
approximately 562,000 soldiers in 2012 to 490,000 by 2017. 
Further reductions would result in additional unit 
inactivations at Army posts around the country. The Committee 
believes more information is needed about impacts to readiness 
from further force structure reductions and affirms its support 
for the reporting requirements directed in the report 
accompanying S. 2410, the National Defense Authorization Act 
for Fiscal Year 2015, as reported, titled ``Army Force 
Structure and Installation Alignment.''
    Army Emergency Management Training Center.--The 2009 Army 
Emergency Management Program (AR-525-27) sought to integrate 
planning, execution, and response management to all-hazard 
incidents affecting Army installations and activities. Although 
largely successful, some aspects of the integration and 
synchronization of emergency management planning assigned to 
the Department of the Army G-3/5/7 may be more appropriately 
suited for an Emergency Management Training Center established 
within the U.S. Training and Doctrine Command [TRADOC], with 
Army Headquarters continuing to exercise oversight. Therefore, 
the Committee directs the Secretary of the Army to report to 
the congressional defense committees by no later than June 1, 
2015, the feasibility of consolidating homeland defense 
functions across Army installations to better support the 
consequences management and homeland defense missions, and of 
establishing an Emergency Management Training Center to 
facilitate comprehensive doctrine, training, and leader 
development for Installation Emergency Management and Defense 
Support to Civil Authorities.
    National Commission on the Future of the Army.--Several 
provisions were included in S. 2410, the National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015, as reported, regarding 
a National Commission on the Future of the Army. The Commission 
is to undertake a comprehensive study of the structure of the 
Army to determine the proper force mixture of the Active 
component and Reserve component, and how the structure should 
be modified to best fulfill current and anticipated mission 
requirements for the Army in a manner consistent with available 
resources and estimated future resources. The Committee affirms 
its support for the National Commission on the Future of the 
Army.
    National Guard and Reserve Education Benefits.--The 
Committee understands that, effective January 1, 2014, members 
of the Army may become eligible for the Army's tuition 
assistance program only after serving a period of 1 year after 
completing certain training courses, such as advance individual 
training, officer candidate school, and the basic officer 
leader course. The Committee is concerned that many members of 
the National Guard and Reserve, who serve only part time, rely 
on the tuition assistance program during all years of service 
and that the change in policy may be causing them to take out 
additional student loans to cover the cost of education during 
their first year of service. The Committee is further concerned 
that this policy is negatively affecting the recruitment 
efforts of the National Guard and Reserve. For these reasons 
and others, the Committee recommends the Secretary of the Army 
to reverse this decision as it applies to the Army National 
Guard and Reserve so that members of the National Guard and 
Reserve are eligible for tuition benefits in the same manner as 
they were prior to January 1, 2014, and to consider reversing 
the decision for active-duty members as well.

    Naval Shipyard Apprentice Program.--The Committee directs 
that during fiscal year 2015 the Navy shall induct classes of 
no fewer than 100 apprentices, respectively, at each of the 
naval shipyards. The Committee further directs the Navy to 
include the costs of the fiscal year 2016 class of apprentices 
in its budget request.
    U.S. Coast Guard.--The Committee is aware that Department 
of Defense [DOD] regulations currently restrict DOD mission 
appropriated funded activities from offering reimbursable rates 
to non-DOD agencies. This restriction forces the Navy to charge 
the U.S. Coast Guard fully burdened rates for drydocking 
services at Navy shipyards rather than reimbursable rates. 
Therefore, the Committee directs that funds appropriated under 
Operation and Maintenance, Navy may be used to pay overhead 
costs incurred by a Naval Shipyard when drydocking U.S. Coast 
Guard ships.
    Minimum Capital Investment for Certain Depots.--The 
Secretary of each military department is directed to invest in 
the capital budgets of the covered depots set forth in 10 
U.S.C. 2476(e) a total amount equal to not less than 6 percent 
of the average total combined maintenance, repair, and overhaul 
workload funded at all the depots of that military department 
for the preceding 3 fiscal years.
    Shipboard Lighting Systems.--The Committee commends the 
Navy for its increasing use of light-emitting diode [LED] 
lighting and encourages it to continue these activities. The 
Committee urges the Navy to consider updating lighting 
specifications for ships so LED use is not prohibited, 
developing an approved products list for LEDs that is broadly 
available for use in all vessels, using ``total lifecycle 
costs'' to determine the value of LEDs, and making the 
installation of LEDs in vessels a priority when appropriate, 
such as during ship retrofits and new builds.
    Patuxent Naval Air Station.--The Committee is aware that 
the Department of the Navy commissioned the Massachusetts 
Institute of Technology's Lincoln Laboratory to conduct a study 
to determine the effects and a potential mitigation plan 
between the operation of the proposed wind energy project and 
the Patuxent Naval Air Station. The study is not yet completed. 
Therefore, the Committee directs the Navy to refrain from 
executing any agreement with respect to the operation of the 
proposed wind energy project until the study is provided to the 
congressional defense committees.

    Air Force Weather Training Modernization.--The Air Force 
Weather Agency makes a significant contribution to improving 
combat effectiveness of our warfighters. The Air Force needs to 
modernize its weather training programs to be able to continue 
that contribution. The Air Force may be able to take advantage 
of different training regimes as it modernizes its training 
programs, including reliance on organic training, entering into 
or expanding cooperative programs with other government 
agencies, such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric 
Administration, and entering into or expanding cooperative 
programs with colleges and universities that have 
meteorological training programs. The Committee encourages the 
Air Force to investigate whether the service could improve the 
effectiveness and efficiency of its weather training programs 
by placing greater reliance on cooperative training programs.
    Lajes Air Base.--The Committee supports the continued 
bilateral relationship the United States has with Portugal, 
particularly with respect to United States-NATO operations. 
However, given current budget constraints, the Committee 
recognizes the Air Force's need to consolidate its force 
structure and operations at Lajes Air Base on Terceira Island 
in the Azores. The Committee understands this reduction will 
also impact host country civilian positions and the local 
economy. The Committee encourages the Department to continue to 
work closely with Portuguese and Azorean officials to minimize 
the economic impacts to the local population and to continue to 
explore all possibilities for other U.S. Government uses of 
Lajes Air Base. The Committee directs the Secretary of Defense 
to provide the congressional defense committees, not later than 
60 days after the submission of the European Infrastructure 
Consolidation Assessment on United States Air Force, a report 
describing the continued U.S. presence at Lajes Air Base; steps 
to be taken to mitigate adverse effects on the surrounding 
community; and initiatives to strengthen and enhance the 
strategic relationship between the United States and Portugal.

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

    Defense Language and National Security Education Office.--
The Committee recognizes that, in partnership with universities 
across the country, the Defense Language and National Security 
Education Office provides critical training for servicemembers 
and government officials in a number of languages and strategic 
cultures, including those of the Arab world, Afghanistan, 
China, and Iran. The Committee encourages the Department of 
Defense to continue placing a high priority on these programs 
to ensure warfighters receive the language and culture training 
needed to complete their missions effectively.
    Military Use Airspace.--The Committee encourages the 
Department of Defense to continue to utilize national assets, 
such as the Hays Military Operations Area, to maintain airborne 
combat readiness for both manned and remotely piloted aircraft.
    Wildlife Trafficking.--The proceeds of animal poaching and 
wildlife trafficking are known to fund armed conflict on the 
African continent, including by the Lord's Resistance Army and 
other destabilizing groups in the Great Lakes Region. The 
Committee supports efforts by Africa Command and Special 
Operations Command to assist in the mitigation of these illegal 
activities through their capacity-building engagements with 
African governments and authorities, including ``train the 
trainer'' exchanges and exercises. The Committee expects Africa 
Command and Special Operations Command to continue these 
engagements in areas affected by wildlife trafficking.
    The Committee also directs the Secretary of Defense to 
provide a report to the congressional defense committees within 
120 days of enactment of this act describing the planned 
activities to support implementation of the Executive order 
establishing the Presidential Task Force on Wildlife 
Trafficking.
    STEM Education and STARBASE.--The Committee finds that 
consolidation of Science, Technology, Engineering, and 
Mathematics [STEM] education programs and significant changes 
to the STARBASE program are not advisable at this time. 
STARBASE provides a unique low-cost leveraging of community and 
military resources that another Federal agency will not be able 
to duplicate. The benefits of cooperative community and 
military relationships stimulate the long-term interest of 
youth in STEM careers. Therefore, the Committee provides 
$25,000,000 to continue the Department of Defense STARBASE 
program in fiscal year 2015. The Committee encourages the 
Secretary of Defense to continue the STARBASE program in future 
fiscal years.
    Item Unique Identification Initiative.--The Item Unique 
Identification [IUID] initiative requires the marking and 
tracking of assets deployed through the Armed Forces or in the 
possession of Department of Defense contractors. Improving 
asset tracking and in-transit visibility has the potential for 
realizing costs savings by improving the management of defense 
equipment and supplies throughout their lifecycle. The 
Committee encourages the Department of Defense to take 
additional actions to improve asset visibility, to include 
completing and implementing its strategy for coordinating 
improvement efforts across the Department.
    Defense Personal Property Moves.--The Committee has a long-
standing interest in the quality of life of military members 
and their families and understands the tremendous challenges 
associated with completing frequent defense personal property 
moves. The Committee is aware that the Department of Defense 
has successfully shifted to the Defense Personal Property 
Program [DP3] and commends the improvements to cost efficiency, 
the claims experience, and in family satisfaction. The 
Committee further commends the improvements that the Department 
and its transportation service providers have made to reduce 
costs and improve the quality of each military move.
    Flame Retardant Military Uniforms.--The Committee 
recognizes that for several years the Army's rapid fielding 
initiative program, using overseas contingency operations 
funding, has provided flame retardant clothing to all deploying 
soldiers to minimize the risk of burn injuries from improvised 
explosive devices. The Committee notes that the Army's flame 
retardant uniforms are approximately double the cost of non-
flame retardant uniforms. However, the Committee understands 
that recent technical developments in flame retardant garments 
have begun to reduce costs while offering options and varying 
levels of protection.
    These emerging developments provide the services with ways 
to protect servicemembers, regardless of the environment, 
without imposing undue costs on already strained budgets. 
Therefore, the Committee directs the Secretary of the Army, in 
coordination with the Secretaries of the Navy and Air Force, to 
conduct a feasibility study on increased use of flame-retardant 
uniforms, including a review of available technologies and 
industry sources of flame retardant fabrics, and to provide a 
written report to the congressional defense committees not 
later than 180 days after the date of the enactment of this 
act.
    Transition Assistance Programs.--The Committee applauds the 
Department's revamped Transition Assistance Program [TAP] to 
provide assistance to servicemembers transitioning toward a 
career or education following military separation. The enhanced 
program called Transition--Goals, Plans, Success (Transition-
GPS) was established to assist servicemembers with their 
transition as the military draws down by providing information, 
counseling, tools, and training for servicemembers to 
separating from the military. While the Committee recognizes 
the achievements of the Department within Transition-GPS, the 
Committee encourages the Secretary, in conjunction with the 
Secretary of the Labor and the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, 
to continuously improve and build upon the program.
    Furthermore, the Committee supports the conclusions reached 
by the March 2014 Government Accountability Office [GAO] report 
titled, ``Transitioning Veterans: Improved Oversight Needed to 
Enhance Implementation of Transition Assistance Program.'' The 
report highlighted five areas of concern: the ability for 
commanders and relevant policy stakeholders to track 
attendance, establishing training quality, assessing career 
readiness, ensuring participation and completion, and measuring 
performance and results in order to evaluate TAP effectiveness. 
The Committee directs the Secretary of Defense to report to the 
congressional defense committees on the implementation status 
of the GAO recommendations included in the report no later than 
180 days after date of enactment of this act.
    Africa Standby Force.--The Committee commends the African 
Union for working toward a proposed African Standby Force and 
supports the more immediate African Capacity for Immediate 
Response to Crises [ACIRC] force, a multinational African rapid 
reaction military capability being established to respond to 
urgent crises and human rights challenges on the African 
continent. The Committee encourages Africa Command to provide 
appropriate training and capacity building support when 
appropriate to the African Union and its member states to 
realize an effective ACIRC and eventual standby force that are 
both able counter emerging crises while operating in accordance 
with international law and human rights norms. The Committee 
encourages the Secretary of Defense to develop a roadmap to 
assist the African Union forces with developing a sustainable 
logistics and airlift capacity.
    Federal Insider Threat Detection Enhancement.--The 
Committee commends the military services for making significant 
strides towards implementing insider threat detection programs, 
specifically end-user auditing and monitoring programs. 
However, the combatant commands have not implemented robust, 
proven capabilities for end-user auditing and monitoring in 
support of insider threat detection. Therefore, the Committee 
recommends an additional $10,000,000 to be used for the 
combatant commands to implement proven and effective end-user 
auditing and monitoring capabilities in support of their 
existing insider threat detection programs. The Committee urges 
specific priority be given to U.S. Central Command, U.S. 
Strategic Command and U.S. Pacific Command.
    Middle East Regional Security Studies Programs.--The 
Committee encourages the Department of Defense to continue to 
support established university programs that promote regionwide 
informal workshops and task forces on arms control, regional 
security, and related topics to the Middle East for Arab, 
Israeli, and other officials and experts engaged in these 
issues.

    National Guard Embedded Mental Health Programs.--The 
Committee recognizes that suicide continues to be an area of 
concern in the National Guard and Reserve components. Programs 
to improve access to behavioral healthcare for National Guard 
and Reserve members and their families through a collaboration 
of Federal, State, and community partners are helping to 
address gaps in treatment. The Committee provides $10,000,000 
to be utilized by the Director of Psychological Health Programs 
of the National Guard Bureau for implementation of embedded 
mental health programs in States determined by that office to 
be at high risk for suicides.
    National Guard Facilities and Assets.--The Committee 
recognizes the number of existing National Guard operational, 
training, logistics, and maintenance capabilities that can be 
utilized by Federal, State, and local entities to reduce 
Federal overhead costs. The Committee encourages the Department 
of Defense to coordinate interagency use of facilities and 
capabilities for cost-savings and improved efficiencies in 
achieving homeland security training and other core mission 
objectives.

            reprogramming guidance for acquisition accounts

    The Committee directs the Secretary of Defense to continue 
to follow the reprogramming guidance specified in the report 
accompanying the House version of the fiscal year 2008 
Department of Defense Appropriations bill (House Report 110-
279). Specifically, the dollar threshold for reprogramming 
funds will remain at $20,000,000 for procurement and 
$10,000,000 for research, development, test and evaluation.
    In addition, the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) 
is directed to continue to provide the congressional defense 
committees quarterly, spreadsheet-based DD Form 1416 reports 
for service and defense-wide accounts in titles III and IV of 
this act. Reports for titles III and IV shall comply with 
guidance specified in the explanatory statement accompanying 
the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2006. The 
Department shall continue to follow the limitation that prior 
approval reprogrammings are set at either the specified dollar 
threshold or 20 percent of the procurement or research, 
development, test and evaluation line, whichever is less. These 
thresholds are cumulative from the base for reprogramming value 
as modified by any adjustments. Therefore, if the combined 
value of transfers into or out of a procurement (P-1) or 
research, development, test and evaluation (R-1) line exceeds 
the identified threshold, the Secretary of Defense must submit 
a prior approval reprogramming to the congressional defense 
committees. In addition, guidelines on the application of prior 
approval reprogramming procedures for congressional special 
interest items are established elsewhere in this statement.

                          PROCUREMENT OVERVIEW

    Physical Access Control Systems.--The Committee is 
concerned with the challenges the Department of Defense 
continues to face with the efficacy of their physical access 
control systems that should prevent unauthorized access to 
Department of Defense installations. The Department of Defense 
continues to develop and deploy incompatible programs and 
systems. These solutions increase costs and often fail to meet 
existing requirements. Commercially available physical access 
control systems address these shortfalls in that they are 
affordable, meet Department of Defense requirements, and do not 
have a significant sustainment cost. Therefore, the Secretaries 
of the Army, Navy, and Air Force shall perform a business case 
analysis that examines the development, procurement, and 
sustainment cost of existing physical access control systems 
compared to the cost of physical access control systems 
available commercially. The Secretaries shall provide a report 
to the congressional defense committees summarizing the outcome 
of this business case analysis and actions they plan to take to 
implement the most affordable solution no later than 180 days 
after enactment of this act.
    Rocket Motor Industrial Base.--The Committee is concerned 
that the domestic industrial base for tactical solid rocket 
motors continues to be impacted by constrained budgets, the use 
of foreign vendors, and a lack of competition. For example, a 
foreign supplier began development and qualification for a new 
rocket motor on the AMRAAM missile in 2009 after the 
domestically supplied rocket failed to qualify because of 
issues with the propellant and the blast tube insulation. The 
Committee has learned that the Navy may also be exploring a 
rocket motor source from a foreign vendor for a tactical 
missile program. Finally, the Committee understands that the 
Army recently awarded a sole-source contract for rocket motors 
for the Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System, a program that 
has been stable and in production for some time.
    The Committee is concerned that in these programs, a 
competition for a new rocket motor vendor was not executed; and 
in two programs, the Department is becoming more reliant on a 
foreign supplier. The Committee is closely following these 
developments across all services, as rocket motors continue to 
be a critical component of the defense industrial base. The 
Committee believes that whenever possible, domestic sources 
should be considered, and full and open competition employed 
before awarding contracts.
    Therefore, the Committee directs the Under Secretary of 
Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics to conduct 
an independent assessment of domestic and foreign-sourced 
rocket motor propulsion for all Department of Defense tactical 
missile programs. This report should include the impacts of 
foreign-sourced rocket motors on domestic suppliers, and the 
national security impacts on the defense industrial base. This 
report shall be delivered to the congressional defense 
committee not later than 180 days of enactment of this act.
    The Committee also directs the Government Accountability 
Office [GAO] to provide a report to the congressional defense 
committees within 180 days of enactment of this act that 
outlines the assumptions and analysis utilized by the Army to 
justify a sole-source contract to develop and qualify new, 
insensitive munitions-compliant rocket motors for the Guided 
Multiple Launch Rocket System, and why a competitive 
acquisition strategy was not used.
    Army Organic Industrial Base.--The Committee directs the 
Secretary of the Army to provide 45-day written notification to 
the congressional defense committees prior to the Secretary 
approving civilian reductions in force that will result in an 
employment loss of 50 or more full-time employees at any Army 
organic industrial base facility. The notification shall 
include the impact that the proposed reduction in force will 
have on the ability to maintain the organic industrial base 
critical manufacturing capabilities as delineated in the Army 
Organic Industrial Base Strategy Report, a detailed accounting 
of the costs of implementing the reduction in force, and an 
assessment of the cost of, and time necessary, to restore any 
lost capability to meet future organic wartime manufacturing 
needs.
    Management of Conventional Ammunition Inventory.--The 
Committee is aware of the Department of Defense's efforts to 
better manage its conventional ammunition inventory. The 
Government Accountability Office recently reported in ``Actions 
Needed to Improve Department-wide Management of Conventional 
Ammunition Inventory'' that more work needs to be done, 
particularly regarding information sharing between the 
services. Incomplete and unreliable inventory systems can lead 
to the wasteful destruction of ammunition, duplicative 
procurement of ammunition that may be available in the 
stockpiles of another service, and shortages of ammunition 
required for forward-stationed forces. To use limited resources 
more efficiently and improve support to our warfighters, the 
Committee encourages the Department of Defense to accelerate 
efforts to automate ammunition tracking and inventory 
accounting, and affirms its support for the reporting 
requirements directed in the report accompanying S. 2410, the 
National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015, as 
reported, titled ``Management of Conventional Ammunition 
Inventory.''
    Arsenal Sustainment Initiative.--The Committee supports the 
ongoing efforts of the Department of the Army to develop the 
Army Organic Industrial Base Strategy. This process is 
identifying manufacturing capabilities at each organic 
industrial facility that are critical for this country to 
sustain in times of war and peace. However, the Committee is 
concerned that while the Army Organic Industrial Base Strategy 
is identifying capabilities, further action is needed to fund 
these capabilities at a level adequate to maintain them. In 
particular, the Nation's arsenals are at risk of not having the 
capacity to respond rapidly to meet the Department's needs. The 
Committee directs the Secretary of the Army to assign the 
arsenals sufficient workload to maintain the critical 
capabilities identified in the Army Organic Industrial Base 
Strategy Report, ensure cost efficiency and technical 
competence in peacetime, and preserve the ability to provide an 
effective and timely response to mobilizations, national 
defense contingency situations, and other emergency 
requirements.
    Further, the Committee is aware that while the Army's 
manufacturing arsenals have provided critical wartime needs to 
all the services, they are not always considered by the other 
services for the work opportunities to sustain them in 
peacetime. Given the arsenals' unique capabilities, the 
Committee directs the Secretary of Defense to submit a report 
to the congressional defense committees not later than 90 days 
after the enactment of this act describing steps taken to 
encourage the Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps to better use 
the arsenals for their manufacturing needs.
    Arsenal and Ammunition Plant Facility Maintenance.--The 
Committee is concerned with the reduction in funding for 
arsenal and ammunition plant facility maintenance. Established 
in most cases during World War II or before, the Army's 
Government-owned, contractor-operated [GOCO] and Government-
owned, Government-operated [GOGO] facilities are critical parts 
of our Nation's defense industrial base, each with specific 
areas of expertise. However, prolonged combat operations in 
Afghanistan and Iraq and a more constrained budget environment 
have slowed the pace of necessary investments required for 
routine maintenance and modernization of production 
capabilities. With these concerns in mind, the Committee 
directs the Secretary of the Army to continue to submit the 
Long-range Facilities and Construction Planning at Army 
Ammunition Plants and Arsenals report, consistent with Senate 
Armed Services Committee Report 110-335, which accompanies the 
Duncun Hunter National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal 
Year 2009, and 112-26, which accompanies the National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, including a detailed 
strategy to address the most urgent needs of the arsenals and 
ammunition plants and investments that will improve overall 
facility competitiveness and efficiency.

    Army Aviation Restructure Initiative [ARI].--The Army's 
fiscal year 2015 budget request proposes a significant 
restructuring of Army aviation assets. This includes 
transferring all Apache helicopters to the active Army from the 
Army National Guard and shifting Blackhawk helicopters from the 
active Army to the Army National Guard. The proposal also 
includes retiring the Kiowa Warrior helicopters and replacing 
the TH-67 trainer helicopters with Lakota helicopters. The 
Committee believes the Army has not considered the full fiscal 
implications of the proposal, and the Army has not provided the 
Committee a comprehensive divestiture plan for the retiring 
helicopters.
    The Committee understands that the Army estimates saving a 
total of $11,942,000,000 under the ARI, including 
$10,300,000,000 from divestiture of the Kiowa Warrior 
helicopters. However, the Committee notes the Army's cost 
estimate fails to account for increased costs to procure and 
maintain additional Lakota helicopters, to train the Army 
Active Duty and Army National Guard pilots for the new 
missions, and to operate and maintain Apaches and Blackhawks. 
Therefore, the Committee directs Cost Assessment and Program 
Evaluation [CAPE] to do an independent cost analysis of both 
the ARI and the alternate Army National Guard estimates to 
complete the proposed transfer and associated outyears costs. 
The Director, CAPE shall provide a report to the congressional 
defense committees 120 days after enactment of this act.
    In addition, the Committee directs the Secretary of the 
Army to submit a report to the congressional defense committees 
not later than 120 days after the enactment of this act on the 
divestiture plan for unneeded Army helicopters. This report 
should address (1) the number of airframes being divested under 
the ARI by fiscal year, (2) the number of airframes being 
transferred to other Government agencies, (3) the number of 
airframes being offered for sale to other nations, (4) the cost 
of divesting these aircraft, (5) the impact the divestiture of 
these airframes will have on the domestic rotary wing 
industrial base and (6) the impact of the divestiture plan on 
military readiness. Further, the Secretary of the Army is 
directed not to allow the resale or auction of any divested 
airframe until 30 days after the report is submitted to the 
congressional defense committees.
    Army Oversight of Aviation Programs.--The Committee is 
aware of a Department of Army memorandum establishing 
responsibility for current and future fixed and rotary wing 
platforms to the Program Executive Office for Aviation. The 
Committee is also aware that responsibility for key subsystems 
of the platforms are assigned to several other Program 
Executive Offices. The Committee understands the Army 
memorandum has created inefficiencies in program acquisition, 
material procurements, and support in current systems by 
establishing multiple organizations within Government to 
support a single aircraft.
    For example, the Enhanced Medium Altitude Reconnaissance 
and Surveillance System [EMARSS] program, which is covered by 
the subject memorandum, is under oversight by multiple Program 
Executive Offices. The combined oversight of multiple Program 
Executive Offices does not appear to have improved the EMARSS 
program, as it experienced severe cost growth. These cost 
overruns led to the Army canceling the program in the fiscal 
year 2015 President's budget request. Therefore, the Committee 
rescinds $73,500,000 of fiscal year 2014 funds, included in the 
Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014 for new EMARSS aircraft.
    In addition, the Committee directs the Secretary of the 
Army to justify the confusing and duplicative management 
structure mandated by this memorandum including a description 
of the estimated cost savings or efficiencies that are expected 
by this reorganization, and report to the congressional defense 
committees not later than 120 days after enactment of this act.
    Army National Guard Blackhawks.--The Committee acknowledges 
that the older UH-60As need to be modernized and replaced as 
quickly as possible for the Army National Guard Blackhawk fleet 
to remain viable and mission capable. It is projected that the 
Army National Guard will not retire their last UH-60A until 
2025, while the Active Army will retire their last UH-60A in 
2020. Therefore, the Committee recommends accelerating the 
fielding of new UH-60M helicopters to the Army National Guard.

    Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles and the Army Budgeting 
Process.--The fiscal year 2015 base budget request includes no 
funds in fiscal years 2015 and 2016 for the procurement of the 
Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles [FMTV] but carries funding 
in fiscal year 2017 and 2018 to resume production and 
eventually meet the Army's acquisition objective. The Committee 
notes that the lack of funding in fiscal years 2015 and 2016 
will shutdown FMTV production for 2 years and will negatively 
impact the industrial base, resulting in higher acquisition 
costs when the Army re-starts procurement in fiscal year 2017 
as planned. The Committee understands that fiscal constraints 
force difficult trade-offs; however, during its budget review, 
the Committee identified over $750,000,000 in poorly budgeted 
funds within the Other Procurement, Army account. Had the Army 
performed a similarly rigorous budget review, these excess 
funds could have been used to address not only the shortfall in 
FMTV, but other programs as well. To avoid a production shut 
down and expensive restart costs, the Committee recommends an 
additional $250,000,000 for FMTVs.
    The Committee understands that the Army budget is assembled 
by specific mission areas, and that each mission area receives 
an allocation of funds to spread across its requirements. The 
Committee notes that as a result, a requirement in one mission 
area may receive funding, while a requirement in a different 
area, such as FMTVs, remains unfunded, even if the FMTV is a 
higher overall priority within the Army than the funded 
requirement. Therefore, the Committee directs the Secretary of 
the Army to work with the other Services to review those 
Service's budgeting processes and to use this information to 
create an Army budgeting process that allows improved 
prioritization of requirements so that priority programs do not 
go unfunded. The Committee directs the Secretary of the Army to 
report to the congressional defense committees 180 days after 
the enactment of this act on the findings of this review.
    Joint Tactical Radio System.--The Committee commends the 
Army on implementing an acquisition strategy for Manpack and 
Rifleman radio procurement that ensures technical and price 
competition over the next 5 years. However, this strategy 
revision has taken a significant amount of time to implement 
and has left $438,000,000 of previously appropriated funds 
unobligated, of which $67,000,000 was offered by the Department 
of Defense [DOD] for rescission. Due to contract award delays, 
the Committee recommends an additional rescission of 
$103,000,000 and urges the Army to use the remaining 
unobligated funds to modernize equipment for the ``Army of 
2020'' with the latest in communications and networking 
capabilities.
    High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle [HMMWV] 
Ambulance.--The Committee recognizes the continued value of the 
HMMWV ambulance, which is tasked to respond to contingency 
operations, domestic emergencies, and humanitarian assistance 
requests. The Committee also recognizes that the Army National 
Guard and the Army Reserve have identified significant 
shortfalls in HMMWV ambulances which hinder training and 
operational capabilities. Therefore, the Committee provides 
$60,000,000 for procurement of HMMWV ambulances.

    EA-18G Aircraft.--Airborne electronic attack [AEA] is a 
capability that has proven critical in recent military 
engagements and for which there will be growing demand in the 
future. As the primary air platform performing this mission for 
the Navy, the EA-18G has proven itself to be a key component to 
the success of the carrier air wing. The Committee is concerned 
that the fiscal year 2015 budget request does not include any 
funding for the EA-18G aircraft even though Navy leadership has 
publicly expressed their support for continued procurement into 
2016. Therefore, the Committee adds $1,200,000,000 for an 
additional 12 aircraft, and $100,000,000 with direction to the 
Navy to extend current production to a minimum production rate 
of two aircraft per month.
    MH-60R Seahawk Procurement.--The Committee is aware that 
the Navy is considering breaching the joint-service H-60 multi-
year procurement contract by not procuring the final 29 
aircraft in fiscal year 2016. Because this is a joint-service 
multi-year contract, the Army will be forced to renegotiate the 
contract, which will delay deliveries and increase unit costs. 
The Committee believes the Navy will face significant 
termination costs that will consume much of the projected 
savings from truncating the program. The Committee understands 
that these aircraft were to be assigned to the USS George 
Washington and that if this aircraft carrier were to be 
retired, the 29 MH-60R helicopters would be excess. In light of 
the Committee's support for the overhaul of this aircraft 
carrier, the fiscal year 2015 advance procurement for these 
aircraft is fully funded. The Committee directs the Navy to 
review the total MH-60R requirement and urges restoral of the 
29 aircraft to the fiscal year 2016 budget request.
    MQ-4 Triton Unmanned Aerial Vehicle.--The fiscal year 2015 
President's budget request includes $37,445,000 for advance 
procurement of the first production Triton UAV. Due to the 
deferment of critical mission capabilities into future software 
blocks within the development program, as discussed elsewhere 
in this report, it is premature to begin procurement of the 
Triton aircraft in fiscal year 2015. Therefore, the Committee 
recommends no funding for advance procurement.

    MK 45 Gun Mount Industrial Base.--The Committee understands 
that no order has been placed in 2 years for naval gun mount 
modernization. As a result, a significant amount of previously 
appropriated funds made available for modernization of MK 45 
gun mounts remain unobligated. The delays and fluctuation in 
work increases price and performance risk, and is also harmful 
to the manufacturer and supplier industrial base. Therefore, 
the Committee encourages the Navy to utilize available funds to 
put on contract four MK 45 gun mount mods. Guns would be 
provided for two DDG upgrades and two CG upgrades.

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

    Shipbuilding Industrial Base and Workload Allocation.--The 
Committee remains concerned generally about the overall health 
of the shipbuilding industrial base and specifically about the 
health of the non-nuclear surface combatant shipbuilding 
industry. The Committee reiterates its commitment to the goal 
of reducing costs and increasing value in the shipbuilding 
program and believes that cooperative workload allocation 
agreements between the Navy and industry may provide an 
alternative method to obtain efficiency and economies in Navy 
ship design and construction with the goals of closing the 
shortfalls in the fleet and retain the shipbuilding industrial 
base needed for future military requirements. Therefore, the 
Secretary of the Navy is directed to engage industry in 
discussions on future shipbuilding workload distribution and 
methods to ensure the viability of the non-nuclear shipyards 
over the long term.
    For instance, when the LPD-17 program was experiencing 
significant production issues, the Department of the Navy 
entered into a workload agreement, ``Memorandum of 
Understanding Concerning the Reallocation of LPD-17 and DDG-51 
Ship Construction Workload'' (SWAP 1), with shipbuilders on 
June 17, 2002. The purpose of the agreement was to reallocate 
workload to ensure ``stability at both yards, stabilize and 
reduce total projected shipbuilding costs for the LPD-17 
Program, and maintain properly balanced sources of supply for 
future Navy surface combatant shipbuilding''. The agreement 
also requires the Navy to award a compensatory DDG-51 or 
equivalent workload if the Navy awards a shipbuilding contract 
for LPD 28. The Committee understands that the Navy considers 
this agreement to remain in full force and effect, and that the 
Navy will engage with shipbuilders involved in the agreement to 
discuss workload distribution. While Congress is not a party to 
this agreement, the Committee directs the Navy to submit a 
report to the congressional defense committees no later than 
March 1, 2015, on the Navy's options and potential courses of 
action to fulfill the requirements of the SWAP 1 agreement 
preceding or concurrent with when LPD 28 is placed under 
contract. The report should also address strategies to ensure 
the viability and stability of the non-nuclear shipyards over 
the long term to preserve the defense maritime industrial base 
and achieve the highest level of performance and quality from 
the shipbuilders.
    CVN 79.--The Committee understands that in light of 
significant cost overruns on CVN 78, USS Ford, the Navy is 
working diligently to reduce costs of the follow-on ship of the 
class, CVN 79, USS Kennedy. The Committee further understands 
that this includes innovative contracting strategies leading to 
greater competition. The Committee commends the Navy for this 
approach and believes that additional savings could be achieved 
as a result of increased competitive acquisition strategies.
    DDG 1000 Destroyer.--The fiscal year 2015 budget request 
includes $419,532,000 for the DDG 1000 program, an increase of 
$187,838,000 over amounts appropriated in fiscal year 2014. The 
Committee notes that the fiscal year 2015 request is 
$98,200,000 above the projected amount required for fiscal year 
2015 during last year's budget submission and that in total, 
the Navy has added $451,900,000 from fiscal years 2015 to 2017 
to the DDG 1000 program in the fiscal year 2015 budget 
submission. The Committee understands that these increases are 
attributed to the fact that the Navy had not previously funded 
the program to the cost estimate provided by the Director, Cost 
Assessment and Program Evaluation [CAPE]. The Committee further 
understands that the Navy does not plan to budget to the CAPE 
estimate in fiscal year 2016.
    The Committee notes that the DDG 1000 program breached 
Nunn-McCurdy cost caps in 2010 and was re-certified by the 
Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and 
Logistics on June 1, 2010. The recertification found that the 
primary root cause for the Nunn-McCurdy breach was the 
reduction in quantity from ten ships to three ships. The 
Committee further notes that subsequent to the Nunn-McCurdy 
recertification, Congress has fully funded annual budget 
requests, supported multiple above threshold reprogrammings, 
provided Special Transfer Authority, supported changes to the 
acquisition strategy, and supported a litigation settlement 
that provided $198,000,000 to the DDG 1000 program.
    In the fiscal year 2015 budget submission, the Navy's 
estimated procurement cost for the three DDG 1000 ships of the 
class is $12,069,400,000, an increase of 34.4 percent since 
fiscal year 2009, when the third ship of the class was 
procured. Given the steadily rising costs of the DDG 1000 
program since authorization and appropriation of the third and 
final ship of the class, the Committee believes the Navy and 
the congressional defense committees would be well-served with 
an updated Independent Cost Estimate. Therefore, the Committee 
directs the Director, CAPE, to provide with the fiscal year 
2016 budget submission an updated Independent Cost Estimate for 
the DDG 1000 program.
    Littoral Combat Ship [LCS].--The fiscal year 2015 budget 
request includes full funding for the procurement of three 
Littoral Combat Ships [LCS], a reduction of one ship compared 
to the prior year budget request. The Committee notes that the 
Navy agreed to a block buy contract for 20 LCS in fiscal year 
2010, ramping two shipyards up to a rate of two LCS per year 
beginning in fiscal year 2012, and that the Navy had planned on 
procuring the last four ships of that block buy in fiscal year 
2015. The fiscal year 2015 budget submission does not support 
that plan. The Committee understands that the Navy now plans to 
extend the block buy contract into fiscal year 2016, and that 
to preserve block buy pricing additional funds for the 
acquisition of long lead materials are required in fiscal year 
2015. Therefore, the Committee recommends $80,000,000 only for 
preservation of block buy pricing. The Assistant Secretary of 
the Navy for Research, Development and Acquisition is directed 
to provide the congressional defense committees an update on 
the Navy's acquisition strategy for LCS prior to the obligation 
of these funds.
    Amphibious Warships.--According to section 123 of S. 2410, 
the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015, as 
reported, the Secretary of the Navy is authorized to 
incrementally fund an additional LPD-17 San Antonio-class 
amphibious ship. The Committee continues to be concerned about 
the level of risk being assumed with amphibious lift 
capability. Therefore, to help address the amphibious lift 
shortfall that exists today, the Committee recommendation 
provides $800,000,000 to incrementally fund an additional LPD-
17 class amphibious ship.
    Joint High Speed Vessel [JHSV].--The Department of the Navy 
is procuring JHSVs for fast intra-theater transportation of 
troops, military vehicles and equipment. With submission of the 
fiscal year 2013 budget, the Navy assumed risk with the overall 
JHSV requirement and reduced the program procurement objective 
from 18 to 10 ships. Under this plan, the final ship would be 
purchased with fiscal year 2013 funding. However, based on the 
ability of the JHSV to support all branches of the military 
services, provide intra-theater sealift, operate in littoral 
environments and austere port environments, and support 
humanitarian/disaster relief activities, the Committee supports 
procuring additional JHSVs to address the original requirement. 
Further, the Committee notes that one JHSV is being used as an 
experimental test platform for Navy technology projects. 
Therefore, the Committee recommends $200,000,000 to procure one 
JHSV in fiscal year 2015.
    Polar-Class Icebreakers.--The Committee notes that since 
2006, the United States has been operating a Polar-class 
icebreaker fleet consisting of one heavy and one medium vessel. 
The Committee understands that this falls short of U.S. 
requirements. While the United States has deferred investment 
in its polar fleet, other nations such as China and Russia are 
pressing ahead to develop robust icebreaking capability, 
allowing them to pursue their national interests in the polar 
regions. The Committee supports the interagency process to 
develop requirements for a new Polar-class icebreaker or 
similarly Arctic-capable surface vessel, recognizing the 
strategic importance of Arctic operations to our Nation's 
future security and prosperity. Therefore, the Committee 
directs the Deputy Secretary of Defense, in cooperation with 
the Secretary of the Navy and the Commandant of the United 
States Coast Guard, to provide the congressional defense 
committees a plan to begin expanding U.S. icebreaking capacity 
that will result in the approval of an operational requirements 
document no later than 180 days after the date of enactment of 
this act.

    Littoral Combat Ship [LCS] Mission Modules.--In February 
2014, the Secretary of Defense announced the Department's 
decision to reduce the planned LCS buy from 52 to 32 ships and 
ordered the Secretary of the Navy to conduct a review of the 
Navy's small surface combatant needs. The Committee understands 
these actions were taken due to concerns raised by the Director 
of Operational Test and Evaluation and Congress on the 
escalating costs of the ship as well as its survivability. 
Additionally, the Government Accountability Office [GAO] has 
repeatedly noted that the Navy's strategy includes buying 
significant numbers of LCS mission modules before their 
performance is demonstrated and that the current inventory of 
mission packages exceeds the quantities necessary for 
operational testing.
    Given the testing concerns raised by GAO and the 
Department's current strategic pause on the LCS program, the 
Committee finds it prudent to also slow the procurement of LCS 
mission modules. Therefore, the Committee recommends a total 
reduction of $71,314,000 to the fiscal year 2015 budget request 
for LCS mission modules and related components.
    Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services 
[CANES].--The fiscal year 2015 budget request includes 
$422,604,000 for continued procurement and installation of 
CANES and CANES--Intell. The Committee understands that the 
CANES program declared a Major Automated Information System 
[MAIS] Critical Change in December 2013 due to the inability to 
achieve a full deployment decision within 5 years of selection 
of the preferred alternative. The testing schedule for the 
CANES program has faced significant delays due to unrelated 
mechanical problems on the original test ship USS Milius (DDG 
69), and initial operational test and evaluation is now 
scheduled to take place in August 2014 aboard the USS Higgins 
(DDG 76). The Committee is concerned with the steep increase in 
procurement of systems planned for fiscal year 2015, and that 
the program will reach its maximum production rate before 
significant testing results can be completed. Therefore, the 
Committee recommends a reduction of six systems from the fiscal 
year 2015 budget request, which would support an overall 
increase in the number of systems procured from 20 in fiscal 
year 2014 to 27 in fiscal year 2015.

    C-130 Avionics Modernization Program.--The Committee 
supports modernization of the C-130H fleet and understands the 
Air Force plans to operate approximately 150 C-130H models for 
the foreseeable future. As such, the Committee supports 
continuation of the C-130 Avionics Modernization Program [AMP] 
program to ensure the Air National Guard operates relevant and 
modernized aircraft. Therefore, consistent with the report 
accompanying S. 2410, the National Defense Authorization Act 
for Fiscal Year 2015, as reported, the Committee directs the 
Air Force to obligate prior year funds authorized and 
appropriated for the C-130 AMP program to conduct such 
activities as are necessary to complete testing and transition 
the program to production and installation of modernization 
kits.
    C-130 Aircraft Fleet.--The Committee recognizes the Air 
Force's commitment to intra-theater lift as supported by the 
multi-year procurement plan of the C-130J aircraft. However, 
with a sizable fleet of older model C-130s residing within the 
Reserve components, the Committee is concerned with the long 
term sustainment of the fleet. Consistent with section 138 of 
S. 2410, the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 
2015, the Committee directs the Air Force to develop a 
modernization, recapitalization and fielding plan for the 
current C-130 fleet that addresses the most recent Quadrennial 
Defense Review requirement that the Air Force maintain 300 
intra-theater lift aircraft and addresses the recommendations 
of the National Commission on the Structure of the Air Force.
    B-52 Upgrades.--The Committee commends the Department's 
efforts to upgrade the B-52 aircraft. While supportive of the 
aircraft and its valuable legacy within the Air Force, the 
Committee is monitoring the costs associated with follow-on 
modifications to the aircraft. As such, the Committee requests 
that the Secretary of the Air Force provide regular updates on 
progress of the internal weapons bay upgrade and the combat 
network communications technology enhancement and how these 
modernization efforts will allow the B-52 to conduct additional 
missions and participate in future operations.
    Undefinitized Contract Actions.--During review of the 
budget request, the Committee notes several programs within the 
Aircraft Procurement, Air Force account that had large amounts 
of unobligated balances in prior years. For example, two 
programs had over $600,000,000 unobligated between fiscal year 
2012 and 2013. Among those programs, the Air Force had chosen 
undefinitized contract actions [UCAs] in awarding contracts. 
While these contract actions are certainly within the bounds of 
authority, as outlined in Defense Federal Acquisition 
Regulation, Part 217, UCAs are required to be definitized 180 
days after award; however, many of these contract awards took 
longer. For example, in documentation provided to the Committee 
for the HC/MC 130 recapitalization program, the obligation data 
indicated that typical contract negotiations take 27 months for 
completion. The Committee believes such practice is 
unacceptable. The Government Accountability Office [GAO] has 
investigated the use of UCAs and has made recommendations to 
reduce their usage noting that the risk to the government are 
greater when there is little incentive for contractors to 
finalize the contract. Therefore, the Committee directs the 
Government Accountability Office to review the use of UCAs 
within the Aircraft Procurement, Air Force account to determine 
how often this contracting option is being utilized and for 
what purpose; if other contract award options are more 
efficient and effective; and what recommendations GAO can make 
to reduce the number of UCAs within the account in the future 
and submit a report 120 days after enactment of this act.

    Global Positioning System [GPS] Digital Payload.--The 
Committee is aware of technical and cost challenges with the 
current analog navigation payload on GPS III. The Committee 
believes that early Air Force investment, when combined with 
industry investment, into the development of a digital 
navigation payload will significantly reduce cost and schedule 
risk for the future GPS constellation. The fiscal year 2015 
budget request includes $32,900,000 for GPS III Space 
Modernization Initiative [SMI]. The Committee fully supports 
the Air Force's SMI request and directs that of the amount 
appropriated, not less than $20,000,000 shall be used to mature 
an alternate GPS digital payload.
    Space Modernization Initiative [SMI].--Recently, the 
Department of Defense has begun to shift its perspective of the 
architecture for space-based capabilities away from monolithic 
space platforms to creative distribution of payloads on 
national, civil, and commercial satellites. The Committee 
firmly believes that movement away from large satellites, where 
possible, will result in significant cost savings and reduce 
the schedule to deliver payloads into orbit. Further, the Air 
Force is entering into a pathfinder program with the commercial 
satellite communications industry that may provide enhanced 
coverage at a lower cost to both the Air Force and the 
commercial provider. The Committee commends the Department of 
Defense and the Air Force for their unconventional approach to 
ensure viable space-based capability for years to come. The 
Committee encourages the Air Force to use funds appropriated 
for the space modernization initiative to further implement 
these new space-based capability strategies.
    Defense Meteorological Satellite Program [DMSP].--The 
budget request includes $87,000,000 for storage, integration, 
test, launch, and early-orbit checkout of one Defense 
Meteorological Satellite Program [DMSP] satellite. Air Force 
analysis indicates this satellite will not be needed on-orbit 
until 2020, costing an additional $425,000,000 in storage 
during that period. This amount is excessive for a 1990s 
technology satellite originally costing approximately 
$500,000,000. The Committee is aware that only a few of the 
capabilities provided by this satellite cannot be met by other 
existing civil and commercial satellites. The Committee 
questions the Air Force's current plan to launch this satellite 
in 2020 at a significant cost to the Government for a 
capability that may be met through other space-based assets. 
Therefore, Committee directs the Air Force to reassess its plan 
for the last DMSP and pursue a least cost approach for the 
disposition of this satellite. Of the amount requested for 
DMSP, the Committee provides $30,000,000.

    Energy Efficient Military Billeting.--The Committee 
encourages the Department of Defense to continue efforts to 
leverage technology and deliver energy efficient returns on 
investments, such as thermal technologies in battlefield 
housing. Such technologies will realize cost savings by 
reducing the military's battlefield fuel footprint while also 
making current billeting structures more energy efficient.
    Weapon Storage Area Recapitalization.--The Committee 
commends the Air Force for its focus on weapon storage area 
recapitalization and encourages the Air Force to take into 
consideration the amount of immediate use when choosing the 
sequence for recapitalization projects. With this in mind, the 
Committee directs the Secretary of the Air Force to submit a 
report to the congressional defense committees within 90 days 
of enactment of this act detailing the rationale for the order 
chosen and the plan to recapitalize the identified weapon 
storage areas.

    Special Operations Command [SOCOM] Manned Intelligence 
Surveillance Reconnaissance [ISR] Aircraft.--The Committee 
notes the fiscal year 2015 budget request of $40,500,000 for 
modification of MC-12 aircraft being transferred from the Air 
Force to Special Operations Command. However, the Committee is 
concerned with SOCOM's continuing changes to its requirements 
for manned ISR aircraft. The incremental changes to the manned 
ISR fleet, including the proposed divestiture of recently 
upgraded aircraft, seems to indicate that SOCOM does not 
understand its long-term ISR requirements. As a result, the 
Committee concurs with the language as directed by S. 2410, the 
National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015, as 
reported, to complete a review of the platform requirements for 
manned ISR aircraft to support United States Special Operations 
Forces and includes a reduction of $5,400,000.

    Additional Funding.--The Committee recognizes the critical 
role that the DPA title III program serves in strengthening the 
U.S. defense industrial base and believes that this work is in 
the national interest. Therefore, the Committee increases 
funding for DPA by $30,000,000 over the budget request. The 
Committee directs that the additional funding be competitively 
awarded to new initiatives and priority consideration should be 
given to completion of DPA projects initiated in prior years. 
Furthermore, the Committee directs the Under Secretary of 
Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics to inform 
the congressional defense committees 30 days prior to any 
obligation or expenditure of these funds.

                                TITLE IV

               RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, TEST AND EVALUATION

    Funds appropriated under this title provide the resources 
required to conduct a program of research, development, test 
and evaluation, including research in basic science, applied 
research, advanced technology development, demonstration and 
validation, engineering and manufacturing development, and 
operational systems development.
    The President's fiscal year 2015 budget requests a total of 
$63,533,947,000 for research, development, test and evaluation 
appropriations.

                      SUMMARY OF COMMITTEE ACTION

    The Committee recommends research, development, test and 
evaluation appropriations totaling $62,566,834,000 for fiscal 
year 2015. This is $967,113,000 below the budget estimate.
    Committee recommended research, development, test and 
evaluation appropriations for fiscal year 2015 are summarized

            REPROGRAMMING GUIDANCE FOR ACQUISITION ACCOUNTS

    The Committee directs the Secretary of Defense to continue 
to follow the reprogramming guidance specified in the report 
accompanying the House version of the fiscal year 2008 
Department of Defense Appropriations bill (House Report 110-
279). Specifically, the dollar threshold for reprogramming 
funds will remain at $20,000,000 for procurement and 
$10,000,000 for research, development, test and evaluation.
    In addition, the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) 
is directed to continue to provide the congressional defense 
committees quarterly, spreadsheet-based DD Form 1416 reports 
for service and defense-wide accounts in titles III and IV of 
this act. Reports for titles III and IV shall comply with 
guidance specified in the explanatory statement accompanying 
the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2006. The 
Department shall continue to follow the limitation that prior 
approval reprogrammings are set at either the specified dollar 
threshold or 20 percent of the procurement or research, 
development, test and evaluation line, whichever is less. These 
thresholds are cumulative from the base for reprogramming value 
as modified by any adjustments. Therefore, if the combined 
value of transfers into or out of a procurement (P-1) or 
research, development, test and evaluation (R-1) line exceeds 
the identified threshold, the Secretary of Defense must submit 
a prior approval reprogramming to the congressional defense 
committees. In addition, guidelines on the application of prior 
approval reprogramming procedures for congressional special 
interest items are established elsewhere in this statement.

          RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, TEST AND EVALUATION OVERVIEW

    Use of Research, Development, Test and Evaluation Funding 
for Procurement of End Items.--The fiscal year 2015 budget 
request includes $69,670,000 in two separate programs in the 
Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, Navy account for 
the acquisition of weapons that will be used operationally. The 
Committee strongly believes that these requests violate intent 
of section 8055 of the Department of Defense Appropriations 
Act, 2014, which prohibits the use of research and development 
funding to procure end-items for delivery to military forces 
for operational use. The Committee further notes that this 
legislative provision has been carried annually for several 
years, and has again been requested by the President for 
inclusion in the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 
2015. The Committee recommendation once again includes this 
restriction.
    In particular, the fiscal year 2015 budget request includes 
$25,000,000 in Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, Navy 
to procure two incrementally funded CH-53K helicopters that 
will be utilized as operational platforms after completion of 
the program's test schedule. The Committee is aware of the need 
to maintain the industrial base following a 1 year schedule 
delay that shifted the program's production decision into 
fiscal year 2016. However, this circumstance does not justify 
the violation of public law and sound acquisition practice. 
Therefore, the recommendation denies $25,000,000 requested for 
these operational aircraft and provides $15,000,000 in research 
and development to sustain qualified vendors pending a 
production decision for the CH-53K program. This recommendation 
allows the test program to proceed as scheduled and has no 
negative impact on the program's production schedule.
    In addition, the fiscal year 2015 budget request includes 
$44,670,000 in Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, Navy 
to incrementally fund a Ship to Shore Connector ship in 
addition to the previously funded test asset. All of the 
program's test and training activities will be conducted with 
the first Ship to Shore Connector test craft. This second ship 
will deliver after completion of the program's test activities 
and be utilized as an operational asset. Further, the Committee 
notes that the fiscal year 2015 budget request includes 
$123,233,000 in Shipbuilding and Conversion, Navy for the 
procurement of two operational Ship to Shore Connectors. The 
Committee denies the use of research and development funds for 
the procurement of an operational craft, and realigns funds 
from Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, Navy to 
Shipbuilding and Conversion, Navy for the procurement of a 
third Ship to Shore Connector in fiscal year 2015. The 
realignment of funds has no impact on the program's acquisition 
schedule and allows the test program to proceed as scheduled.
    Navy Justification Material.--The Committee is concerned 
with the quality of the material provided by the Navy to 
justify the fiscal year 2015 President's budget request. The 
budget justification was incomplete, and lacked several 
mandatory documents, such as R-4a forms. The deletion of these 
exhibits is at odds with the Financial Management Regulations 
and the principles of justifying the Navy's budget to Congress. 
Additionally, several exhibits contained the words ``to be 
determined'' in areas where projections could be made such as 
contract award date, vendor, and contract type.
    The supplemental information that was provided to the 
Committee offered little further insight. For example, several 
major acquisition programs requested large amounts of funding 
for ``primary hardware development,'' without further 
explanation. These types of summary entries limited Committee 
insight into the planned work. As a result, the Committee 
directs the Secretary of the Navy to provide the mandated 
justification documents and the required level of detail in the 
fiscal year 2016 budget request.
    Alternative Energy Research.--The Committee continues to 
support the fiscal and operational value of investing in 
alternative energy research. The recommendation includes an 
additional $75,000,000 for Army, Navy and Air Force research 
and development to continue research of promising alternative 
energy technologies, such as renewable energies, alternative 
fuels, and energy efficiencies. The Committee encourages the 
services to focus on the ability of platforms, installations, 
and personnel to operate with a diverse mix of fuels.
    F135 Engine.--When the Department of Defense made the 
decision to terminate the alternate engine for the F-35 Joint 
Strike Fighter [JSF] in May of 2011, it reassured the Committee 
that a second engine was no longer necessary as a hedge against 
the failure of the main JSF engine program. The Department also 
stated that the financial benefits, such as savings from 
competition, were small if they existed at all. Since that 
time, the F135 engine has experienced numerous problems, 
including the failure of an oil flow management valve and a 
pre-take-off fire in the past few weeks, both of which grounded 
the entire fleet of over 100 aircraft. Further, the F135 engine 
unit cost has not declined as projected. However, the Committee 
believes that had the alternate engine program continued, 
competition would have incentivized the F135 engine 
manufacturer to find creative methods to drive down prices and 
ensure timely delivery of a high quality product, which is 
consistent with current Department preference for competition 
in acquisitions. Therefore, the Committee recommends the 
Secretary of Defense reassess the value of an alternate engine 
program creating competition to improve price, quality, and 
operational availability.
    Solar Research in Dry-Dust Areas.--The Committee supports 
efforts by the Department of Defense to become more energy 
efficient. These efforts have demonstrated cost savings and are 
an important part of the 2010 and 2014 Quadrennial Defense 
Reviews and the Department of Defense's Operational Energy 
Strategy. Renewable energy, including solar, is an important 
part of these efforts. Earlier this year, the Army broke ground 
on its largest solar energy plant at Fort Huachuca in Arizona. 
Covering 155 acres, the plant is projected to provide not less 
than 25 percent of the Fort's electricity. The Committee 
believes solar initiatives are also important for overseas 
operations, particularly in the Middle East and Africa, where 
in country supplies are unreliable and large amounts of energy 
often need to be transported to theater. However, dry-dust 
problems can prevent the optimal use of solar energy in some 
areas. Therefore, the Committee urges the Department of Defense 
to continue research into the use of solar energy in dry-dust 
regions.
    Basic Research.--The fiscal year 2015 budget request 
includes $2,017,502,000 for basic research to be performed by 
all Department of Defense [DOD] services and agencies. This 
amount is $149,096,000, or 7 percent below the fiscal year 2014 
enacted level. The Committee is discouraged by this sharp 
decline, because basic research is the foundation upon which 
other technology is developed. Further, basic research 
performed by DOD spans across universities and colleges, small 
businesses and laboratories, growing future scientists and 
creating new business opportunities. Earlier this year, the 
Committee held a hearing on Defense Research and Innovation. 
The testimony provided by the witnesses indicated that a sharp 
decline in science and technology investment could threaten 
America's technological edge. Therefore, the Committee 
recommends $2,274,928,000 for basic research, a 5 percent 
increase for the Department of the Army, Department of the Air 
Force, Department of the Navy and DOD, above previously enacted 
levels. The Committee also expects that the Department not make 
disproportionate or unjustified reductions to science and 
technology entities as part of the headquarters management 
reduction initiative.

    Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle [AMPV].--The fiscal year 2015 
budget request includes $92,353,000 for the Armored Multi-
Purpose Vehicle [AMPV], a Family of Vehicles based on a 
military vehicle derivative that will replace the M-113 Armored 
Personnel Carriers to support Armored Brigade Combat Teams 
across the range of military operations. The Committee notes 
that the Army Acquisition Objective of 3,007 vehicles for the 
AMPV program of record does not include vehicles for Echelons 
Above Brigade [EAB], which could require additional quantities 
in excess of 1,900 vehicles. The Committee understands that the 
Army is preparing a report to the congressional defense 
committees on its plan to eventually replace all M-113 Armored 
Personnel Carriers within Echelons Above Brigade formations; 
however, the Committee notes that any potential acquisition 
program requires an Analysis of Alternatives to support 
decision milestones.
    The Committee notes that the fiscal year 2015 budget 
request includes $9,913,000 in a separate program element for 
several Analyses of Alternatives [AoA], and further notes that 
while the Army is considering selection of the AMPV EAB as a 
potential AoA candidate in fiscal year 2015, the Army has not 
yet decided whether to proceed with that particular AoA. 
Therefore, the Committee directs the Army to conduct an 
Analysis of Alternatives for an AMPV EAB requirement in fiscal 
year 2015, and allocates $4,000,000 only for that purpose from 
within available funds. Further, the Army is directed to report 
to the congressional defense committees within fifteen days of 
completion of the AoA on its findings and results.
    Patriot Modernization.--The fiscal year 2015 budget request 
includes $152,991,000 in Research, Development, Test and 
Evaluation, Army for Patriot Modernization, an increase of 
$117,957,000 over amounts appropriated in fiscal year 2014. The 
Committee has previously expressed concerns in Senate Reports 
113-85 and 112-196 regarding the lack of clearly defined 
requirements for this program, the absence of an acquisition 
strategy that embraces competition, and a lack of full 
understanding of costs. These concerns are exacerbated by the 
fiscal year 2015 budget submission, which more than doubles 
projected funding required for Patriot Modernization through 
fiscal year 2018, compared to estimates provided for that same 
time period just 1 year ago. The Committee notes that this 
comparison does not include funding identified in this year's 
budget submission for a future radar competition beginning in 
fiscal year 2017. Further, the Committee notes that excluding 
the development and acquisition of a new radar, the Army plans 
to invest over $2,200,000,000 for modernization of the Patriot 
system over the next 5 years in Research, Development, Test and 
Evaluation, Army and in Missile Procurement, Army, and that the 
large majority of these funds would not be competitively 
awarded. The Committee does not believe this to be in the best 
interest of the Army or the U.S. taxpayer.
    Finally, the Committee notes that the Army has delayed 
submission to the congressional defense committees of reports 
required in Senate Report 113-85, which direct a plan from the 
Secretary of the Army that establishes an open system software 
architecture for future upgrades and technology refresh to the 
Patriot system in the near-term, and an acquisition strategy 
from the Secretary of the Army in conjunction with the Under 
Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics 
that incorporates full and open competition for Patriot 
Modernization in the near-, mid- and long-term. Therefore, the 
Committee does not find the requested program increase 
justified, and recommends $37,991,000 for Patriot Modernization 
in fiscal year 2015, consistent with amounts appropriated in 
fiscal year 2014.
    In addition, the Committee directs the Under Secretary of 
Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, in 
conjunction with the Director of the Office of Secretary of 
Defense Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation, to provide with 
the fiscal year 2016 budget submission a cost assessment of the 
acquisition strategy for Patriot Modernization, as well as an 
estimate of savings that would result from inserting 
competition in the acquisition strategy in the near-term.
    Network Integration Evaluation [NIE].--The fiscal year 2015 
budget request includes $105,279,000 to conduct two Network 
Integration Evaluation [NIE] exercises. The Committee notes 
that the Army continues to over-estimate costs for the NIE, 
resulting in repeated significant underexecution, accumulating 
carry-over funding and annual budget re-estimates. The 
Committee further notes that the Army intends to apply 
$20,000,000 of funds appropriated in fiscal year 2014 to fiscal 
year 2015 requirements. Accordingly, the Committee recommends a 
reduction to the fiscal year 2015 request to ensure the Army 
can execute the funds it is provided.
    Army Aviation Modernization Programs.--The fiscal year 2015 
budget submission includes $264,887,000 for the modification 
and product improvement of multiple aircraft. The Committee 
notes that this includes funds for no less than five major 
efforts, including two major acquisition programs, the UH-60L 
Digital Cockpit program and the Improved Turbine Engine Program 
[ITEP]. The Committee further notes that neither the UH-60L 
Digital Cockpit program nor the ITEP program has been fully 
funded for two consecutive budget cycles and that both programs 
are beset by repeated program delays. The Committee is 
concerned that the Army is again heading towards failure with 
two major acquisition programs, and does not believe this 
matter is alleviated by co-mingling funding for these programs 
with other aviation modernization efforts. Therefore, the 
Committee recommends adjusting the budget structure for the 
modernization of aviation platforms and directs the Army to 
maintain the revised budget alignment in the fiscal year 2016 
budget submission.
    Precision Weapons Testing.--The Committee understands that 
the Army is executing on-going technology and development 
programs for small, precision weapon munitions that provide 
low-collateral damage capabilities in urban environments and 
counter-insurgency operations. The Committee encourages the 
Army to continue to develop and flight test guidance, 
navigation, control, and targeting capabilities on small, 
precise weapons.
    Military Batteries.--The Committee recognizes the critical 
nature of high quality batteries to power military wheeled and 
tracked vehicles in austere, demanding environments. The 
Committee understands that utilizing batteries based on 
decades-old design poses potential risks to equipment and 
personnel, and that the Army has increased use of batteries 
based on modern designs that deliver improved performance in 
tactical environments. The Committee directs the Secretary of 
the Army to provide with the fiscal year 2016 budget submission 
a report detailing safety incidents by different types of 
battery models used.
    Materials Technology for Strategic Defense.--The Committee 
notes the Army Research Laboratory [ARL] is expanding research, 
education, and technology development efforts in materials and 
metals processing science and engineering, aiming to transform 
the affordability, performance, and environmental 
sustainability of strategic materials. The Committee further 
notes that ARL's Open Campus concept benefits the academic 
community and industry through collaboration with ARL's 
research staff, leading to continued technological superiority 
for the U.S. warfighter, and encourages the Army to review 
whether its strategic materials efforts could benefit from the 
Open Concept approach.
    Army Inventory Tracking.--The Committee is concerned about 
difficulties to effectively and efficiently manage and account 
for equipment returning from Afghanistan. This challenge also 
affects cataloguing, inventorying, and tracking of equipment in 
the continental United States. The Committee understands that 
the Army is testing automated inventory tracking and management 
solutions to address capability gaps, and encourages further 
testing and evaluation to determine if these solutions can be 
cost-effective, time-saving alternatives to the current means 
of cataloguing and tracking returning equipment. The Committee 
directs the Army to report to the congressional defense 
committees not later than 120 days after the enactment of this 
act on the result of these evaluations.
    Health Surveillance Technologies.--The Committee is aware 
of Department of Defense efforts to use technology to improve 
surveillance of hospital-based patient safety and quality 
initiatives as well surveillance of acute and chronic public 
health disease threats. Deployment of these critical 
technologies has the ability not only to detect rarely 
occurring biological threat agents, but the ability to identify 
the occurrence of naturally occurring infectious illnesses. The 
technologies can be further modified to detect non-infectious 
diseases and chronic illness, and to conduct patient safety 
surveillance in the hospital and outpatient settings. The 
Committee encourages the Department to work with the medical 
and academic community and continue its efforts in reaching the 
full deployment of these technologies.

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

    Ocean Exploration Program.--As recommended by the 
President's Commission on Ocean Policy, the Office of Naval 
Research [ONR] should support the National Oceanic Atmospheric 
Administration's ``America's Ocean Exploration Program'' 
through continued cooperation on advanced technology, such as 
remotely controlled and autonomously operated vehicles. Where 
appropriate, the Committee encourages ONR to enable information 
sharing with other Federal research agencies by integrating and 
leveraging relevant research and data.
    Commonality for Command and Control Software.--The 
Department of the Navy spends a significant portion of its 
annual budget to procure, develop, and maintain numerous 
Command and Control [C2] software systems to meet the needs of 
Navy Flight Test Ranges. These systems contain common software 
components. Typically, software components are not off-the-
shelf systems, leading to complex interoperability challenges 
which limit data sharing. Therefore, the Committee urges the 
Navy to identify concepts that enable the decoupling of 
software components for reuse in future Government C2 systems 
at Naval Flight Test Ranges. In addition, the Committee 
encourages the Navy to evaluate the value of establishing a 
government owned-government led open source code repository.
    Navy Alternative Energy.--The Committee provides an 
additional $25,000,000 for Navy alternative energy research. 
The Committee encourages the Navy to expand ocean renewable 
energy testing, research, develop, and deploy for maritime 
security systems, support at-sea surveillance and 
communications systems, and explore opportunities to reduce the 
cost of energy and increase energy security at coastal 
Department of Defense [DOD] facilities. The Committee 
encourages the Navy to continue its investments in developing 
ocean renewable energy technologies, as defined in the Energy 
Independence and Security Act of 2007, and to coordinate with 
the Department of Energy and designated National Marine 
Renewable Energy Centers for ocean renewable energy 
demonstration activities at or near DOD facilities.
    Power Generation and Energy Storage.--The Committee 
supports the Navy's investments in power generation and energy 
storage research. The Committee notes that development and 
deployment of lithium-ion batteries are critical to current and 
future missions, but safety incidents and concerns have made it 
challenging for operational utility. Therefore, the Committee 
encourages the Department of the Navy to continue development 
and qualification of technologies to reduce the risk of thermal 
runaway in lithium-ion batteries.
    HAZMAT Elimination.--Until recently, most on-board ship 
water purification systems used bromine as an antimicrobial. 
However, bromine is toxic, and requires special HAZMAT handling 
which is time-consuming and expensive. While the Navy has 
placed bromine-free systems on most of the large deck surface 
ship classes, it has not yet removed bromine systems from the 
LCS, CG, DDG, and FFG classes. The Committee urges the Navy to 
explore using systems that eliminate this HAZMAT threat to its 
personnel.
    Counter Anti-Access/Area Denial Capabilities.--The 
Committee remains concerned about the ability of U.S. naval 
forces to confront anti-access/area-denial environments in 
maritime domains, particularly in the Asia Pacific region. U.S. 
Forces face complex and sophisticated emerging ballistic and 
cruise missile threats that impact operational access and 
mission effectiveness. The Committee urges the Office of Naval 
Research to conduct research efforts on technologies that 
enhance the ability of U.S. naval forces to operate in heavily 
contested environments.
    Integrated Undersea Surveillance System.--The Committee 
understands that the Integrated Undersea Surveillance System 
provides the Navy with its primary means of submarine 
detection. The Committee believes that developing technology 
that is capable of autonomous installation of an undersea 
passive acoustic array should be a Navy priority. Therefore, 
the Committee encourages the Navy to continue developing this 
technology.
    Navy Integrated Capability Concept.--The Committee notes 
the Department of the Navy is pursuing a streamlined approach 
to integrating multiple weapon systems under the Navy 
Integrated Capability Concept. This concept will greatly 
enhance interoperability across weapon systems in the Navy; 
however, the other military departments are not participating 
in these integration activities. In addition, this concept is 
directing the modification of Navy weapons systems, which is 
expected to cost over $4,000,000,000. The Committee believes 
that such a large financial commitment cannot be carried out 
without proper validation of requirements, which is required of 
any major defense acquisition program. As a result, the 
Committee directs the Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation 
[CAPE] and the Joint Requirements Oversight Council [JROC] to 
review and validate this cost and requirements of the concept 
and report to the congressional defense committees within 180 
days of enactment of this act.
    Ohio Replacement Program.--The fiscal year 2015 President's 
budget request includes $853,277,000 to continue development of 
the Ohio-class replacement submarine. The current fleet of 14 
ballistic submarines are scheduled to retire in fiscal year 
2027, after 42 years of service. The Committee received 
testimony from the Chief of Naval Operations that replacement 
of the Ohio-class SSBN ``is the top priority program for the 
Navy'' and encourages the same priority for the program in 
future years' budgets. The Committee strongly urges the Navy to 
keep this program on schedule and within budget.
    F/A-18 and EA-18G Propulsion Upgrade Study.--The Committee 
encourages the Department of the Navy to continue researching 
potential F414-400 turbofan engine upgrades for the F/A-18 and 
EA-18G. Therefore, the Committee fully funds the fiscal year 
2015 request for the F/A-18 and EA-18G modernization plan.
    Amphibious Combat Vehicle.--This fiscal year 2015 request 
includes $105,749,000 to begin development of the Amphibious 
Combat Vehicle Increment 1.1. The funding is requested to 
manufacture 33 prototype vehicles, conduct testing and other 
associated costs. The Committee is supportive of the Marine 
Corps' Amphibious Combat Vehicle [ACV] program but is concerned 
with aspects of the proposed acceleration of the acquisition 
strategy, such as inadequate test schedules and excessive 
numbers of prototypes. Therefore, the Committee fully funds the 
fiscal year 2015 request, but rescinds $40,000,000 previously 
appropriated in the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 
2014. The combined fiscal year 2014 and fiscal year 2015 funds 
allows ample funding for competitive contract awards in fiscal 
year 2015.
    Electromagnetic Railgun.--The Navy has initiated a new 
effort to transition several breakthrough technologies to the 
warfighter, including the electromagnetic railgun. The 
advantages of this capability include increased range over 
traditional propellant guns, enhanced lethality, increased 
ammunition storage capacity, and decreased costs when compared 
to current land attack missiles. The fiscal year 2015 
President's budget request includes, and the Committee fully 
funds, $58,696,000 to procure equipment and define ship 
modifications for a railgun demonstration on a Joint High Speed 
Vessel.
    In an effort to accelerate the railgun's deployment and 
reduce the risk of this technology, the Committee encourages 
the Navy to fund a small railgun demonstration as proposed by 
the Defense Ordnance Technology Consortium. Demonstration of a 
smaller weapon would allow for the rapid production, testing, 
and early fielding of a tactical railgun system. Once 
developed, this system may also be used for early fielding of 
an integrated air and missile defense system to provide testing 
components for other systems.
    By April 1, 2015, the Committee directs the Secretary of 
Defense to submit a report to the congressional defense 
committees that outlines the Navy and Strategic Capabilities 
Office's plan to demonstrate a small (10 mega-joule or less 
system) electromagnetic railgun system as a step to reduce 
program risk for follow-on development efforts.
    Unmanned Carrier Launched Airborne Surveillance and Strike 
[UCLASS] System.--The Committee supports the request of 
$403,017,000 to continue the development of the UCLASS program 
in three segments: the air segment, the control system and 
connectivity segment, and the carrier segment. The Committee is 
concerned that the Navy is proceeding with UCLASS development 
prior to the formal establishment of stable requirements.
    For example, earlier this year, the Navy issued a second 
draft request for proposals for the air segment, which included 
changes to the key performance parameters from the original 
draft. The changes in requirements forced industry to 
significantly change their air vehicle designs to better meet 
the amended parameters. This could have been avoided if the 
UCLASS requirements had been formally established through a 
Joint Requirements Oversight Council approved capability 
development document [CDD] prior to issuing a draft request for 
proposal. The Committee is concerned that the Navy is avoiding 
basic acquisition practices at the outset of a very large 
development program. To help ensure key performance parameters 
are well established and understood in the future, the 
Committee directs the Secretary of the Navy to obtain Joint 
Requirements Oversight Council approval of the UCLASS CDD 
before issuing the final request for proposal.
    MQ-4 Triton Unmanned Aerial Vehicle [UAV].--The fiscal year 
2015 President's budget requests $498,003,000 to continue 
system development and begin modernization of the RQ-4 Triton 
UAV program. Last year, the program experienced a 2 year delay 
in development and added $312,000,000 across fiscal years 2014 
and 2015. This year, the program has experienced an additional 
year delay and added $407,600,000 across fiscal years 2015, 
2016 and 2017. The Committee is concerned with the cost and 
schedule breaches over the past few years. In addition, the 
Committee is troubled by the software development delays, the 
reduction of a test article, the development of a unique ground 
station, and the lack of anti-tamper systems to protect the 
critical technologies. Therefore, the Committee recommends 
deferring modernization until a review of the capabilities 
development document outlining the modernization program is 
performed by the Joint Review Oversight Council [JROC]. The 
Committee reduces the fiscal year 2015 research and development 
request by $60,000,000, and directs the Navy to use $5,000,000 
to complete the analysis in support of the JROC review. The 
recommendation includes a separate modernization budget line 
item for transparency.
    Satellite Communications Interference.--The Committee is 
aware that the Department of the Navy is investigating 
methodologies to decrease interference in satellite 
communication between the Mobile User Objective System [MUOS] 
satellite transmission and the terminals. The Committee is 
concerned about problems associated with interference in ground 
terminals for wideband satellite communications systems and 
encourages further development of technologies that can 
effectively address this interference. Therefore, the Committee 
fully funds the budget request for the satellite communication 
development program and encourages the Navy to work with small 
businesses to provide an affordable solution.

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

    Technology Transfer.--The Committee recognizes the 
importance of the technology transfer program and recommends an 
additional $2,500,000 to complement and leverage current 
program efforts largely focused on licensing Department of 
Defense patents across a broad range of industries. The 
Committee encourages the Department of Defense to apply the 
additional funds to universities with robust programs in 
aviation and aerospace research. The funds will allow these 
universities to lead the transfer of defense technology to 
address specific technology shortfalls within the United States 
aviation and aerospace industry.
    The Competitive Rocket Innovation--Modern Engine 
Arrangement.--The Committee is concerned with the Air Force's 
reliance on the Russian RD-180 engine to power the first stage 
of the Atlas V launch vehicle for assured access to space. When 
the Department originally decided to use the RD-180 engine, the 
Air Force committed to develop an advanced rocket engine that 
would eventually replace the RD-180. Unfortunately, the Air 
Force failed to make rocket engine development a priority, so 
the program remains a science and technology project with no 
formal completion schedule that would deliver a new engine in 
this decade.
    The fiscal year 2015 science and technology budget request 
includes $43,059,000 for liquid rocket engine technology 
development. The Committee believes this level of funding falls 
short of the investment needed to create a viable new engine 
program and therefore adds $25,000,000.
    The Committee also recognizes that, in addition to assuring 
access to space for national payloads, civil space programs and 
the commercial launch industry would benefit from an 
affordable, domestically manufactured, advanced technology 
rocket engine that would be available to all launch providers. 
Therefore, the Committee directs the Secretary of the Air Force 
to develop an affordable, competitive rocket engine development 
strategy that delivers a rocket engine by 2019. The strategy 
should include an assessment of the potential benefits and 
challenges of using public-private partnerships and innovative 
teaming arrangements. The Secretary of the Air Force shall 
submit the development strategy to the congressional defense 
committees no later than 180 days after the enactment of this 
act.
    Space Launch Range Services and Capability.--The Committee 
notes that a lack of competition for launch services over the 
past decade has resulted in significant launch costs and 
disincentives for industry to invest in development to improve 
launch capabilities. The Committee believes additional 
competition can be achieved by creating new opportunities 
within the United States launch infrastructure, including 
commercial and State-owned launch facilities. Increasing the 
capability and number of launch facilities helps to ensure our 
Nation's ability to launch priority space assets. Therefore, to 
promote competition at launch facilities, $7,000,000 is 
provided to spaceports or launch and range complexes that are 
commercially licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration 
and receive funding from the local or State government. These 
funds shall be used to develop the capacity to provide mid-to-
low inclination orbits or polar-to-high inclination orbits in 
support of the national security space program.
    Combat Rescue Helicopter.--The Committee fully supports the 
Air Force's decision to proceed with an acquisition program to 
replace the aging HH-60G Pave Hawk combat search and rescue 
helicopter. Due to the timing of this decision, the President's 
budget request for fiscal year 2015 reflects no funding in 
fiscal year 2015 and a shortfall of $436,000,000 from fiscal 
year 2016 through 2018.
    Since 2010, the HH-60G Pave Hawk readiness rate has 
remained around 60 percent. However, the cost to achieve this 
rate has grown an average of 7 percent year-by-year. Based on 
this data, the Committee believes it is unaffordable not to 
recap the aging Pave Hawk fleet. Therefore, the Committee 
provides an additional $100,000,000 in fiscal year 2015 and 
urges the Secretary of the Air Force to fully fund this program 
in the out-years consistent with the most recent decision on 
the program.
    The Committee notes that some combat rescue scenarios in 
the Africa Command and Pacific Command areas of 
responsibilities could create challenges to a pure rotor wing 
fleet. Therefore, to ensure the program addresses the full 
spectrum of combat rescue missions, the Committee encourages 
the Air Force to review the joint operational needs and 
requirements to determine if a high-low capability would best 
meet the combatant commander's needs.
    The Committee also directs that should the Secretary of the 
Air Force consider terminating the combat rescue helicopter 
program, a 30-day written notification must first be provided 
to the congressional defense committees. This program is 
designated as a congressional special interest item.
    Joint Surveillance and Target Attack Radar System [JSTARS] 
Recapitalization.--The Committee is encouraged by the Air 
Force's effort to replace the aging, and increasingly costly, 
JSTARS E-8C aircraft, and supports the conclusions of Air 
Force's Analysis of Alternatives [AOA] study. The AOA 
determined that a business jet aircraft outfitted with existing 
moving target indicator [MTI] radar and battle management 
command and control [BMC2] technology would meet the combatant 
commanders' warfighting requirements at the lowest cost. 
However, the budget request shows that the Air Force intends to 
pursue a traditional acquisition program and expend nearly 
$2,000,000,000 on a research and development effort despite the 
fact that existing radars could be integrated onto existing 
business jet airframes.
    The Committee is concerned that the Air Force plans to 
begin retirement of this high demand/low density asset in 2016 
just as it is embarking on an extensive development program 
with no production planned until 2019. Further, the Air Force 
plans to launch into competitive prototyping in fiscal year 
2015 before a formal capabilities development document is 
approved that finalizes the system requirements to be 
prototyped. The Air Force states their plan is to leverage high 
technology readiness level communication, sensor, and BMC2 
system technologies to reduce program cost, schedule, and risk.
    However, the program, as laid out, will not enter into t
