Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: (U) A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification The B-52 is one of two bomber weapon systems which supports conventional and nuclear taskings. It employs a diverse weapons load and is the only long range bomber/weapon system that can employ the Advanced Cruise Missile (ACM), Air Launched Cruise Missile (ALCM) and Conventional Air Launched Cruise Missile (CALCM). The current service life is forecast beyond 2040. The Avionics Midlife Improvement (AMI) modification replaces unsupportable mission critical parts of the Offensive Avionics System (OAS), which controls navigation and weapons delivery. The Situational Awareness Defensive Improvement (SADI) modification originally was planned to improve situational awareness and electronic countermeasure system control. SADI has been rebaselined under the Airborne Electronic Attack Stand Off Jamming (AEA/SOJ) program (PE 64270F). The Global Air Traffic Management (GATM) spiral upgrade will allow the B-52 to meet Federal Aviation Agency and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) avionics requirements to reduce airspace congestion and increase safety. B-52 Modernization upgrade provides communications improvements for enhanced command and control, an in flight CALCM mission planning system, machine-to-machine J-series/GPS aided weapons retargeting, increased carriage of GPS guided gravity and standoff weapons, support for B-52 test activities at the Air Force Flight Test Center (AFFTC), and other future program/studies to improve Total Ownership Cost (TOC) of the Aircraft. Air Force Material Command’s Oklahoma Air Logistics Center has program management responsibility. The prime contractor for these projects is Boeing Defense located in Wichita, Kansas.
