This thesis evaluates the acquisition strategies of two developmental weapon system programs: Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) and Javelin Medium Antiarmor Weapon System. The study examines the defense acquisition process through the comparison of the acquisition strategies of the programs. An analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the two acquisition strategies and an evaluation of the similarities and differences of the two programs are provided. From this study, lessons learned are identified that can be used by other acquisition managers and their staffs to effectively manage future programs. Significant lessons learned indicate that the maturity level of technology selected for use, proper tailoring, use of realism and dual sourcing are critical to the successful development of an acquisition strategy.
