The article reports on the various naval aircrafts and weapon development programs in the U.S. The year 2002 proved to be momentous as Operation Enduring Freedom continued to rely on a wide range of naval aviation assets, and the Naval Air Systems Command team continued to make advances in research, development, and testing. 93 percent of the Navy strike sorties delivered precision-guided ordnance. This was possible only because the naval requirements and acquisition community made concerted efforts to redesign aircraft, weapon, and avionics systems to deliver more responsive precision-engagement combat power.
