The purpose of the Lead Systems Integrator (LSI) approach is to introduce more streamlined industrial practices and state-of-the-industry technology into Government acquisition. The LSI is designed to assist the Government in analyzing requirements and managing the development of system-of-systems for acquisition programs. The purpose of this study is to analyze the Lead Systems Integrator (LSI) concept and how it facilitates defense system development and acquisition. This research project evaluated the concept of the LSI by examining its use in the Army's Future Combat Systems and the Coast Guard's Deepwater programs. These two force-modernization programs are composed of a complex system-of-systems design acquired through a LSI. This report clearly defines the LSI and the conceptual concerns surrounding its implementation, as well as describes the Army's Future Combat Systems and the Coast Guard's Deepwater Programs experiences with the LSI.
