This thesis is a case analysis of the V-22 Osprey program. IT examines the history of tilt-rotor technology, as well as the history of the program management. Congressional, OSD and USMC/USN interplay is detailed chronologically from 1980 through to 1991 with particular reference to Congressional action during this period. Various studies and simulations are analyzed with the objective of establishing the V-22 as an aircraft which is capable of fulfilling wide-ranging mission criteria established by the Services much more effectively and efficiently than current or planned aircraft. the commercial an foreign military sales markets for the V-22 are also examined. This thesis concludes that the tilt-rotor concept has considerable worldwide potential for both military and civil applications.
