dc.description.abstractThis project provides an analysis of the Army's acquisition of the Land Warrior (LW) Soldier System. Its objectives are to document the history of the LW and provide an overview of the program to establish the components of both it development and deployment and its associated business and management characteristics. The product is a document that provides an analysis of the actions taken and the obstacles encountered and how the materiel developers, warfighters, user representatives and lawmakers dealt with them. The LW was approved in 1993. The requirement was to provide improvements for dismounted soldiers in the five specific capabity caategories of lethality, command and control, mobility, survivability and sustainment. For a period lasting approximately 15 years, the LW has evolved. Despite this evolution, the Army in FY 2007 terminated it in FY 2007. Regardless, it has laid the foundation for follow-on soldier system initiatives. The LW was unsuccessfu initially due to the misalignment of three interrelated and supporting components; 1) technical immaturity, 2) poor user acceptance, and 3) lack of senior leadership support. Successes that are more recent can be attributed to: 1)soldier-driven design, 2) improved technical maturity, and 3) proven employment of the system in combat by warfighters.en_US
