ABSTRACT
The F-22 aircraft has advanced features that make it more difficult to detect, is capable of high speeds for long ranges, and is equipped with integrated aviation electronics that greatly improve the pilots' awareness of their surroundings. Since the start of the F-22 development program in 1991, the Air Force's cost estimates to develop the aircraft have increased. Congress set a cost limitation of $18.6 billion for the program in 1998. This report, which updates a GAO study issued last year (GAO/NSIAD-99-55, Mar. 1999), assesses the extent to which the F-22 development program is meeting its performance, schedule, and cost goals. GAO also discusses whether the Air Force is likely to complete the development program as planned without exceeding the congressional cost cap.
