DoD has charted a new course to improve the way in which it provides weapon systems for its forces -- the use of Integrated Process and Product Development concepts and the use of empowered, multifuncitonal teams, called Integrated Product Teams. The earliest DoD program under these concepts is the Air Force F-22 Advanced Tactical Fighter Development program.

This book describes the principles and the concepts of the F-22 program and describes how the F-22 program implements this theory. Provides explanations of how the F-22 program operates and shows practical examples of how the theoretical concepts can be applied in the real world. Illus.

The F-22 Raptor is a stealth fighter aircraft built by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics and Boeing Integrated Defense Systems. It was originally envisioned as an air superiority fighter, but is equipped for ground attack, electronic attack, and signals intelligence roles as well. Long in development, the aircraft was also known as the prototype YF-22 and as the F/A-22 for three years before formally entering United States Air Force service in December 2005 as the F-22A. (From Wikipedia)

In 2006 the cost for each F-22A is estimated at $338 million.
