2 155405-005 The Nation is Facing a Wide Range Of Dangerous and Increasingly Complex Threats These complex threats require flexible multi-role systems, and demand sufficient numbers to address concurrent scenarios The complex nature of emerging threats requires a versatile tactical aviation platform. Tactical Aviation Provides the Critical Means To Exercise The Nation’s Carrier Power NAVAL CARRIER AVIATION FLEXIBLE TIMELY RESPONSE US Military Involvement Since 1990 Aircraft Carriers Provide Critical Sovereign Basing For Forward Deployed Forces Addressing Complex Threats Timely and flexible response requires keeping carriers at sea The Characteristics Of Conflicts Are Changing As Well, Becoming More Asymmetrical and Geographically Diverse As a result, the Nation continues to depend on the Navy as “first responders” for conflicts which require speed and flexibility in execution

3 155405-005 Naval aviation faces an impending TACAIR shortfall due to Current Hornet service life limits: war time usage greater than plan Inventory reductions: procurement decisions over past 15 years Delays in other tactical aircraft programs: Navy F-35C model slips Up to 4 carriers without aircraft for 15 years This Navy strike fighter shortfall is rapid and dramatic, and will exceed 240 aircraft Inventory gap will cause operational warfighting shortfall NAVY TACTICAL AVIATION LOOMING SHORTFALL -240

4 155405-005 The Super Hornet with its advanced sensors and targeting capabilities, connectivity paths, and precision weapons, has already started to transform the way the Navy fights. F/A-18E/F SUPER HORNET BLOCK II DELIVERING CAPABILITY The F/A-18E/F Super Hornet Block II delivers: Advanced multi-role capabilities today The world’s most capable AESA radar Sensor integration Enhanced survivability The Super Hornet - Unprecedented Multi-Mission War Fighting Capabilities

5 155405-005 The F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet program is a model for defense acquisition First Multi-Year Procurement – $700M savings Second Multi-Year Procurement –$1B savings Third Multi-Year Procurement – Est. $700M savings Advanced capabilities with a history of savings Aircraft Unit Flyaway Price LRIP IMYP IMYP II MYP III: 10 % savings 1997-1999 2000-2004 2005-2009 2010-2014 A MODEL DEFENSE PROCUREMENT PROGRAM Super Hornet Block II Evolved Capabilities State of the Art Sensors Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) Radar Sensor Integration Enhanced Survivability Electronic Attack Advanced Communications Distributed Targeting Advanced Weapons Integration Across the Joint Force Open Architecture Operational Flexibility On budget, ahead of schedule, and delivering next generation capabilities today

6 155405-005 Multi-Year Procurement (MYP) Of Super Hornets  The Navy is facing a tactical aviation shortfall and needs to purchase additional Super Hornets through a cost-saving Multi-Year Procurement that saves taxpayers money  The Super Hornet Block II is a highly capable aircraft that provides an affordable and low-risk solution to meet the Navy’s tactical aircraft needs through 2025  The F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet program is a model for defense acquisition - on budget and on time  The Super Hornet industrial base is a national asset Super Hornet program - on time, on budget, meets all requirements THE ONLY AFFORDABLE AND CAPABLE SOLUTION TO THE STRIKE FIGHTER SHORTFALL

7 155405-005 Without capacity to overcome a gap, the nation loses the ability to respond to inventory uncertainties Current DoD planning closes the Super Hornet Block II production line years before equivalent aircraft capability or production capacity is available. Protects over 100,000 jobs Prevents reduction to single fighter house Mitigates supplier industrial impact Manages risk, maintains expertise Provides linkage to future programs 1,900 companies in 46 states Action must be taken in the upcoming budget to address the TACAIR shortfall. RISK MITIGATION THE INDUSTRIAL BASE A Super Hornet multi-year:

8 155405-005 –Navy not requesting a multi-year or additional aircraft at this time –SECDEF reducing Super Hornet 2010 procurement from 40 to 31 aircraft (E/F/G) –Navy’s newest TACAIR shortfall projection was 243 aircraft (before latest cut) This 243 number has been shared with some congressional staffers –SECDEF’s budget does not address the TACAIR shortfall –SECDEF has unilaterally made the POM10 budget decisions and Services unable or unwilling to challenge (exampled by the USAF change in position on F-22) –SECDEF has not answered Congress on MYPIII savings as directed by 2009 NDAA F/A-18E/F Super Hornet Block II "MYP III... Right for our Navy, Right for our Nation, Right Now" SOLUTIONS NAVY TACAIR SHORTFALL Situation

9 155405-005 F/A-18E/F Super Hornet Block II "MYP III... Right for our Navy, Right for our Nation, Right Now" SOLUTIONS NAVY TACAIR SHORTFALL Reaching Out to Congress For Help, Is Key! Must raise the issue with Congressional Members that the strike fighter shortfall is critical to national security and additional Super Hornets will address this risk Congress must act this year to address the TACAIR shortfall, if the CNO and the SECDEF will not Congress can add additional Super Hornets in the 2009 Supplemental and the 2010 budget to start to address the shortfall A third multi-year of Super Hornets is the best solution for the strike fighter shortfall and the nation
