Goals and objectives for life cycle management (LCM) challenges associated with UAS acquisition and
sustainment have been identified for action by the life cycle management community. UAS
characteristics and lessons derived from MQ-1 Predator and RQ-4 Global Hawk programs were used to
inform the establishment of these objectives. From the LCM perspective, the vision suggested by this
flight plan is to improve sustainment for currently fielded systems and build a strategy for acquisition and
product support planning for future UAS systems. The three primary LCM goals are:

Goal #1: Improve Current Sustainment Posture
Goal #2: Ensure Product Supportability for Future Systems
Goal #3: Identify & Invest in Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Sustainability (RAMS)
Technologies with Particular UAS Applicability

Each goal will have associated actionable objectives with suggested OPRs and milestone dates. The
intent of the goals and objectives are to address those areas of policy, process and technology to enable
the UAS end state communicated in previous sections of this Flight Plan.
