Geving, Donald L., II
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this research was to investigate the problems surrounding the Marine Integrated Fire and Air Support Systems (MIFASS) Program, managed by the United States Marine Corps. This investigation involved the following: 1) Defining what MIFASS was and the program management structure supporting the program and 2) analyzing the problems of a flawed acquisition strategy, flawed requirements definition, and a flawed program management structure. As a result of this analysis this paper concludes the need for establishing a "Marine Corps Systems Command" out of which C2 programs may be supported, and the opening of a program management office for the acquisition of complex C2 systems.
