Vector Strategy's 2013 US Military Body Armor Procurement Report is available for immediate purchase and delivery effective March 6, 2013!
This provocative report provides an analysis of 2000 to 2013 US military body armor procurement and three scenarios for 2014 to 2020 procurement.
Each scenario is based on a different set of assumptions about procurement of next generation body armor systems, sustainment of legacy body armor systems, and industrial base sustainment policies or outcomes. We have outlined tradeoffs that the DoD will need to make as they develop future funding requirements for the US Army's Soldier Protection System and the USMC's Modular Scalable Protection System.
The three scenarios evaluated in this report are:
Scenario A: Modernization Through Sustainment
Scenario B: Sacrifice Modernization For Sustainment of Legacy Systems
Scenario C: Sacrifice Combat Readiness and Technical Innovation
After careful and considerable analysis, Vector Strategy has determined that the most Warfighter-centric and fiscally-efficient scenario for future US military body armor procurement is Scenario A: Modernization Through Sustainment.
The report also provides an in depth analysis of 2008 to 2013 US military sustainment awards and questions DoD's strategy regarding the sustainment of their body armor inventory.
