                               BACKGROUND

                          Purpose of the Bill

    This bill makes appropriations for the military functions 
of the Department of Defense for the period October 1, 2016, 
through September 30, 2017. Functional areas include the pay, 
allowances, and support of military personnel, operation and 
maintenance of the forces, procurement of equipment and 
systems, and research, development, test and evaluation. 
Appropriations for foreign military assistance, military 
construction, family housing, nuclear weapons programs, and 
civil defense are provided in other bills.

                                Hearings

    The Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense began hearings 
on February 10, 2016, and concluded them on April 27, 2016, 
after nine separate sessions. The subcommittee heard testimony 
from representatives of the Department of Defense.

                          Summary of the Bill

    The Committee recommendation of $568,101,051,000 includes 
funding to develop, maintain, and equip the military forces of 
the United States and for other purposes in nonemergency 
appropriations.
    The fiscal year 2017 budget request for activities funded 
in the Department of Defense appropriations bill totals 
$569,858,382,000 in new budget authority, including 
$58,625,551,000 in contingency funding for the Department of 
Defense and $514,000,000 in mandatory spending.
    In fiscal year 2016, the Congress appropriated 
$566,616,000,000 for activities funded in this bill. This 
amount includes $507,978,000,000 in base appropriations and 
$58,638,000,000 in Overseas Contingency Operations/Global War 
on Terrorism appropriations. The Committee recommends that 
funds requested for Coast Guard overseas contingency operations 
be appropriated directly to the Department of Homeland 
Security.
    The Committee recommendation in this bill is $1,485,051,000 
above the amount provided in fiscal year 2016 and 
$1,757,331,000 below the amount requested for fiscal year 2017.

    The Committee has displayed recommended adjustments in 
tables presented under each appropriation account.
    These adjustments reflect the following Committee actions: 
elimination of funds requested for programs which are lower 
priority, duplicative, or not supported by firm requirements in 
out-year development or procurement appropriations; deletion of 
excess funds based on program delays or slow execution; 
addition of funds to reflect congressional priorities and to 
rectify shortfalls in the budget estimate; and implementation 
of recommendations in S. 2943, the National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017, as reported.
    The Committee directs that the funding increases outlined 
in these tables shall be provided only for the specific 
purposes indicated in the table.

                     CLASSIFIED PROGRAM ADJUSTMENTS

    The Committee recommends adjustments to certain classified 
programs, as explained in the classified annex to the 
Committee's report.

              Definition of Program, Project and Activity

    For the purposes of the Balanced Budget and Emergency 
Deficit Control Act of 1985 (Public Law 99-177), as amended by 
the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Reaffirmation 
Act of 1987 (Public Law 100-119), and by the Budget Enforcement 
Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-508), the terms ``program, project, 
and activity'' for appropriations contained in this act shall 
be defined as the most specific level of budget items 
identified in the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 
2017, the related classified annexes and Committee reports, and 
P-1 and R-1 budget justification documents as subsequently 
modified by congressional action.
    The following exception to the above definition shall 
apply: the military personnel and the operation and maintenance 
accounts, for which the term ``program, project, and activity'' 
is defined as the appropriations accounts contained in the 
Department of Defense Appropriations Act.
    At the time the President submits the budget request for 
fiscal year 2018, the Secretary of Defense is directed to 
transmit to the congressional defense committees budget 
justification documents to be known as the ``M-1'' and ``O-1'' 
which shall identify, at the budget activity, activity group, 
and sub-activity group level, the amounts requested by the 
President to be appropriated to the Department of Defense for 
military personnel and operation and maintenance in any budget 
request, or amended budget request, for fiscal year 2018.

                         Reprogramming Guidance

    The Secretary of Defense is directed to continue to follow 
the reprogramming guidance for acquisition accounts as 
specified in the report accompanying the House version of the 
Department of Defense appropriations bill for fiscal year 2008 
(House Report 110-279). For operation and maintenance accounts, 
the Secretary of Defense shall continue to follow the 
reprogramming guidelines specified in the conference report 
accompanying H.R. 3222, the Department of Defense 
Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2008. The dollar threshold 
for reprogramming funds shall remain at $10,000,000 for 
military personnel; $15,000,000 for operation and maintenance; 
$20,000,000 for procurement; and $10,000,000 for research, 
development, test and evaluation.
    Also, the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) is 
directed to continue to provide the congressional defense 
committees annual DD Form 1416 reports for titles I and II and 
quarterly, spreadsheet-based DD Form 1416 reports for service 
and defense-wide accounts in titles III and IV of this act. 
Reports for titles III and IV shall comply with guidance 
specified in the explanatory statement accompanying the 
Department of Defense Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2006. 
The Department shall continue to follow the limitation that 
prior approval reprogrammings are set at either the specified 
dollar threshold or 20 percent of the procurement or research, 
development, test and evaluation line, whichever is less. These 
thresholds are cumulative from the base for reprogramming value 
as modified by any adjustments. Therefore, if the combined 
value of transfers into or out of a military personnel (M-1), 
an operation and maintenance (O-1), a procurement (P-1), or a 
research, development, test and evaluation (R-1) line exceeds 
the identified threshold, the Secretary of Defense must submit 
a prior approval reprogramming to the congressional defense 
committees. In addition, guidelines on the application of prior 
approval reprogramming procedures for congressional special 
interest items are established elsewhere in this report.

                         Committee Initiatives

    The Committee has included funding above the President's 
budget request for several programmatic initiatives which the 
Committee believes are of inherent value for national defense. 
In several cases, funds are restored for programs which were 
included in previous Department of Defense budget requests, and 
for programs that the Committee believes are necessary to 
improve the U.S. defense posture even though they have not been 
included under the request formulated by the Department of 
Defense.
    For instance, the Committee's hearings with the military 
services and the Department's leadership highlighted the risk 
to maintaining the U.S. technological edge under sequester-
level budgets. Therefore, the Committee recommends increases to 
sustain U.S. technological superiority such as fifth generation 
aircraft, various shipbuilding programs, battlefield 
intelligence programs, and space programs. In addition, the 
Committee recommends funding to increase readiness, sustain 
U.S. force structure and maintain our industrial base. Finally, 
the Committee recommends increases in basic research, 
alternative energy and science and technology funding, which 
are the foundation for enhancing future technological 
superiority. The Committee also recommends funding for programs 
that are chronically underfunded, such as the Defense 
Production Act and National Guard and Reserve equipment 
purchases.
    The Committee directs that funds for these initiatives are 
to be competitively awarded or provided to programs that have 
received competitive awards in the past.

                       JOINT STRIKE FIGHTER [JSF]

    Joint Strike Fighter [JSF] Production.--The fiscal year 
2017 budget request includes 63 F-35 Joint Strike Fighters, six 
fewer than were provided in the Department of Defense 
Appropriations Act, 2016 (Public Law 114-113). In comparison to 
quantities planned in the fiscal year 2016 budget request, the 
Air Force's fiscal year 2017 request includes five fewer 
aircraft in fiscal year 2017 and 45 fewer aircraft from fiscal 
years 2017 to 2021. The Committee is concerned that the current 
programmed quantities will not support the fielding of F-35 
squadrons, as initially planned. As a result, the Committee 
recommends an additional $100,000,000 in advance procurement 
for the F-35A and encourages the Air Force to revisit F-35A 
procurement quantities in the fiscal year 2018 budget request.
    The Committee notes that the Navy continues to delay 
previously planned production increases of the F-35C carrier 
variant and has budgeted for no more than four F-35C aircraft 
since fiscal year 2014, even though prior budget requests 
planned for more aircraft. The fiscal year 2017 budget request 
again includes only four F-35Cs, two fewer than were provided 
in the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2016 (Public 
Law 114-113). The Committee notes that it is challenging to 
efficiently manufacture a small number of F-35C aircraft on the 
same production line as the F-35A and F-35B aircraft, given the 
unique items associated with the carrier variant. Therefore, 
the Committee encourages the Navy to maintain, at a minimum, 
the current procurement plan in the fiscal year 2018 budget 
request.
    The Committee notes that the Marine Corps has maintained a 
consistent funding profile for the F-35B variant over recent 
years. To support the Marine Corps initial operational 
capability and enable the transition from 4th generation 
fighters, the Committee recommends additional funding for two 
Marine Corps F-35B and two Marine Corps F-35C aircraft.
    Finally, the Committee understands that the Joint Strike 
Fighter Program Executive Officer is considering formally 
requesting JSF block buy authority from the congressional 
defense committees. The Committee notes that block buy 
authority differs from multi-year procurement authority. The 
Committee supports acquisition cost savings, however, there is 
concern that the Department of Defense has not completed a 
formal review of such a strategy. Therefore, the Committee 
encourages the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, 
Technology, Logistics) to review a block buy strategy prior to 
the submission of such a request to the congressional defense 
committees.
    Joint Strike Fighter Follow-on Modernization [JSF FoM].--
The fiscal year 2017 budget request includes $264,900,000 in 
Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, Navy and Research, 
Development, Test and Evaluation, Air Force for Joint Strike 
Fighter Follow-on Modernization, an increase of $173,900,000 
above fiscal year 2016 enacted amounts. The Committee notes the 
progress made by the JSF Program Executive Officer to define 
initial requirements and refine the JSF FoM acquisition 
strategy. However, the Committee further notes that cost 
estimates for the first two JSF FoM sub-blocks exceed 
$2,000,000,000, and that requirements and costs for the 
subsequent two JSF FoM sub-blocks are yet to be determined. In 
addition, the Committee notes that the JSF FoM acquisition 
strategy, the test and evaluation master plan, the contracting 
strategy, and the plan for management of infrastructure remain 
to be approved. Finally, the Committee notes that of funds 
requested for JSF FoM in fiscal year 2017, $158,900,000 is 
planned for obligation after the first quarter of fiscal year 
2018. Therefore, the Committee recommends $106,000,000 for JSF 
FoM, an increase of $15,000,000 above fiscal year 2016 enacted 
amounts, and the amount executable in fiscal year 2017. The JSF 
Program Executive Officer is directed to provide to the 
congressional defense committees, not later than the fiscal 
year 2018 budget submission, the approved JSF FoM acquisition 
strategy, and, for each JSF FoM sub-block, the systems 
engineering plan, the test and evaluation master plan, 
independent cost estimates, and an acquisition program 
baseline.

                    ISRAELI MISSILE DEFENSE PROGRAMS

    The fiscal year 2017 President's budget request includes 
$145,835,000 for Israeli missile defense programs, and the 
Committee has received a request from the Government of Israel 
which recommends $454,900,000 above the budget request for 
these programs. As previously stated in Senate Report 114-63, 
Congress has repeatedly, with strong bipartisan support, 
appropriated funds in excess of administration requests for 
Israeli missile defense programs to accelerate development of 
capabilities within a mutually agreed-upon U.S.-Israeli 
framework. However, these increases have historically been on a 
significantly smaller scale than the requests presented to the 
Committee in recent years, and accelerated capabilities covered 
by previously established cooperative development agreements. 
The Committee notes that in the last three fiscal years, 
Congress has appropriated more than $1,000,000,000 above the 
President's budget request for Israeli missile defense programs 
despite fiscal constraints imposed by the Budget Control Act. 
However, the establishment of U.S.-Israeli co-production 
agreements has yet to conclude, and funds appropriated in 
fiscal year 2016 have yet to be released. The Committee is 
aware of ongoing negotiations between the Government of the 
United States and the Government of Israel regarding Israel's 
future missile defense requirements and is hopeful that these 
requirements will be fully addressed.
    The Committee recommends an additional $454,900,000 for 
Israeli missile defense programs, as requested by the 
Government of Israel. The Committee directs that not more than 
$90,000,000 may be obligated or expended for long lead items in 
support of the David's Sling Weapons System, and not more than 
$70,000,000 may be obligated or expended for long lead items in 
support of the Arrow upper tier program until the Under 
Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology and Logistics) 
provides to the congressional defense committees the joint 
U.S.--Israeli co-production agreements for each of these weapon 
systems that define: Israeli requirements, detail joint 
production plans, to include the transfer of technical data 
packages, if applicable, establish all up round production and 
delivery schedules, delineate U.S. and Israeli industry 
workshares for co-production, describe the proposed use of U.S. 
and Israeli funds based on a common cost model, and identify 
Israeli contributions. In addition, the Director, Missile 
Defense Agency is directed to certify to the congressional 
defense committees, not later than the fiscal year 2018 budget 
submission, that previously requested data has been provided to 
the Missile Defense Agency by the Israeli Missile Defense 
Organization.

          SHIP MODERNIZATION, OPERATIONS AND SUSTAINMENT FUND

    The Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2013 (Public 
Law 112-175) established the Ship Modernization, Operations and 
Sustainment Fund [SMOSF] and provided full funding, as 
identified by the Navy, for the succeeding two fiscal years to 
man, operate, sustain, upgrade, equip, and modernize seven 
cruisers and two dock landing ships. At the time, the Congress 
was concerned with the Navy's proposal to prematurely retire 
capable and relevant ships and supported a temporary bridge 
fund for these ships until the Navy could budget for the 
routine costs to operate and modernize them in subsequent 
budgets. Congressional direction limited the $2,378,000,000 
provided in fiscal year 2013 to only those ships or hull 
numbers that the Navy proposed for premature retirement in the 
budget submission. According to the Navy, their retirement 
proposal was strictly driven by fiscal constraints. Despite the 
additional funding and strong congressional direction, the Navy 
failed to obligate within 2 years the majority of SMOSF 
resources provided in Public Law 112-175.
    With submission of the fiscal year 2015 budget request, the 
Navy included a new proposal to remove 11 Ticonderoga-class 
guided missile cruisers and three amphibious dock landing ships 
from the operational fleet and lay them up for several years 
under a phased modernization plan. The Department of Defense 
Appropriations Act, 2015 (Public Law 113-235) rejected this 
proposal and instead recommended a modified modernization plan 
that was consistent the Navy's proposal to expand application 
of unobligated SMOSF resources to four additional cruisers and 
an additional dock landing ship. In addition, the fiscal year 
2015 agreement included an increase of $540,000,000 in the 
SMOSF to support this new direction. The Committee notes, 
however, that the Navy continues to obligate funds at a slower 
than expected rate.
    The Navy's fiscal year 2017 budget submission, once again, 
deviates from congressional direction and proposes to change 
the modernization lay-up and phasing plan while continuing to 
utilize SMOSF resources. Given that the Navy has repeatedly 
ignored congressional direction over the past 4 years and 
continues to make changes to how SMOSF resources are applied, 
the Committee rescinds $1,317,300,000 from funds remaining 
available for obligation in the SMOSF account. The Committee 
recommends an increase of $183,000,000 in the Operation and 
Maintenance, Navy account and $101,500,000 in the Other 
Procurement, Navy account to support cruiser and dock landing 
ship modernization efforts in fiscal year 2017. The Committee 
expects the Navy to utilize these funds for their 
congressionally directed purpose during fiscal year 2017 and to 
fully fund for all manpower, readiness, and modernization 
activities associated with cruiser and dock landing ships in 
the traditional appropriations accounts with the fiscal year 
2018 budget request.

                                TITLE I

                           MILITARY PERSONNEL

    Funds appropriated under this title provide the resources 
required for basic pay, retired pay accrual, employers' 
contribution for Social Security taxes, basic allowance for 
subsistence, basic allowance for housing, special and incentive 
pays, permanent change of station travel, and other personnel 
costs for uniformed members of the Armed Forces.
    The President's fiscal year 2017 budget requests a total of 
$128,902,332,000 for military personnel appropriations. This 
request funds an Active component end strength of 1,281,900 and 
a Reserve component end strength of 801,200.

         Reprogramming Guidance for Military Personnel Accounts

    The Committee directs the Secretary of Defense to submit 
the Base for Reprogramming (DD Form 1414) for each of the 
fiscal year 2017 appropriation accounts not later than 60 days 
after the enactment of this act. The Secretary of Defense is 
prohibited from executing any reprogramming or transfer of 
funds for any purpose other than originally appropriated until 
the aforementioned report is submitted to the House and Senate 
Appropriations Committees. The Committee directs the Secretary 
of Defense to use the normal prior approval reprogramming 
procedures to transfer funds in the services' military 
personnel accounts between budget activities in excess of 
$10,000,000.

               Military Personnel Special Interest Items

    Items for which additional funds have been provided or have 
been specifically reduced as shown in the project level tables 
or in paragraphs using the phrase ``only for'' or ``only to'' 
in this report are congressional special interest items for the 
purpose of the Base for Reprogramming (DD Form 1414). Each of 
these items must be carried on the DD Form 1414 at the stated 
amount as specifically addressed in the Committee report. Below 
Threshold Reprogrammings may not be used to either restore or 
reduce funding from congressional special interest items as 
identified on the DD Form 1414.

                      Military Personnel Overview

    Reserve Component Budget Reporting.--The Committee 
continues its requirement for the Department to provide a semi-
annual detailed report to the congressional defense committees 
showing transfers between subactivities within the military 
personnel appropriation. Reports shall be submitted not later 
than 30 days following the end of the second quarter and 30 
days following the end of the fiscal year.
    Unobligated Balances.--A Government Accountability Office 
analysis of past year obligation rates shows that the services 
continue to underexecute their military personnel accounts. Due 
to excess unobligated balances, the Committee recommends a 
total reduction of $880,050,000 from the fiscal year 2017 
military personnel accounts.
    Advanced Trauma Training Program for National Guard and 
Reserve.--The Committee recognizes the valuable support 
universities, hospitals, and other military partners provide by 
offering civilian-based emergency response trauma training to 
sustain medics' and medical providers' capabilities of the 
National Guard Enhanced Response Forces Packages [CERFP], 
National Guard Homeland Response Forces [NGHRF], and the Army 
Reserve Consequence Management Response Forces [CCMRF]. The 
Committee encourages the National Guard and Reserve to continue 
pursuing state-of-the-art trauma training with these civilian 
partners, thus maintaining unit medical readiness postures at 
optimum levels as military healthcare providers in CERFPs, 
NGHRFs, and CCMRFs maintain their individual skills to respond 
effectively to emergency incidents on the homeland. 
Furthermore, in order to minimize the civilian-military 
operational gaps in the event of a catastrophic incident, the 
Committee also encourages the development of enhanced 
preparedness medical training programs focusing on mass 
casualty triage, advanced disaster life support, advanced 
hazardous material life support, emergency dental, and 
psychological health by increasing civilian-based advanced 
trauma expertise gained through day-to-day experiences and 
medical research programs.
    Remotely Piloted Aircraft Pilot Shortfall.--The Committee 
is deeply concerned with the continuing shortage of Remotely 
Piloted Aircraft [RPA] pilots. As a result of shortfalls in 
incentivizing, training, and retaining RPA pilots, the fiscal 
year 2017 budget request proposes contractors to fill in for 
RPA operators. Contractors are not authorized to operate on 
unmanned platforms in the same capacity as airmen, yet will be 
paid more for their work. This solution is not sustainable due 
to cost and the limits on missions performed by contractor 
pilots. To avoid this less than optimal temporary solution and 
improve retention, the Committee supports the use of critical 
skill bonus payments in order to direct and incentivize talent 
specifically for the RPA platform. The Committee believes skill 
bonus payments are not meant to support parity among platforms 
or services but to acknowledge the scarcity of an indispensable 
skill. The critical need for RPA pilots will continue to be an 
enduring requirement for the Air Force, and the Committee 
directs the Secretary of the Air Force to provide additional 
solutions.

     REPROGRAMMING GUIDANCE FOR OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE ACCOUNTS

    The Committee directs the Secretary of Defense to submit 
the Base for Reprogramming (DD Form 1414) for each of the 
fiscal year 2017 appropriation accounts not later than 60 days 
after the enactment of this act. The Secretary of Defense is 
prohibited from executing any reprogramming or transfer of 
funds for any purpose other than originally appropriated until 
the aforementioned report is submitted to the House and Senate 
Appropriations Committees.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of Defense to use the 
normal prior approval reprogramming procedures to transfer 
funds in the services' operation and maintenance accounts 
between O-1 budget activities in excess of $15,000,000. In 
addition, the Secretary of Defense should follow prior approval 
reprogramming procedures for transfers in excess of $15,000,000 
out of the following budget sub-activities:
        Army:
                Maneuver units
                Modular support brigades
                Land forces operations support
                Force readiness operations support
                Land forces depot maintenance

                Modernization
        Marine Corps:
                Depot maintenance
                Facilities Sustainment, Restoration, and 
                Modernization
        Air Force:
                Primary combat forces
                Combat enhancement forces
                Combat communications
                Facilities Sustainment, Restoration, and 
                Modernization
        Air Force Reserve:
                Depot maintenance
        Air National Guard:
                Depot maintenance
    Additionally, the Secretary of Defense should follow prior 
approval reprogramming procedures for transfers in excess of 
$15,000,000 into the following budget sub-activity:
        Operation and Maintenance, Army National Guard:
                Other personnel support/recruiting and 
                advertising
    With respect to Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide, 
proposed transfers of funds to or from the levels specified for 
defense agencies in excess of $15,000,000 shall be subject to 
prior approval reprogramming procedures.
    During fiscal year 2017, the Committee directs the Service 
Secretaries to submit written notification and justification to 
the congressional defense committees not later than 15 days 
prior to implementing transfers in excess of $15,000,000 out of 
the following budget sub-activities:
        Navy:
                Mission and other flight operations
                Mission and other ship operations
        Air Force:
                Operating forces depot maintenance
                Mobilization depot maintenance
                Training and recruiting depot maintenance
                Administration and service-wide depot 
                maintenance
    These transfers may be implemented 15 days after a 
congressional notification unless an objection is received from 
one of the congressional defense committees.

            OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE BUDGET EXECUTION DATA

    The Committee directs the Secretary of Defense to continue 
to provide the congressional defense committees with quarterly 
budget execution data. Such data should be provided not later 
than 45 days after the close of each quarter of the fiscal 
year, and should be provided for each O-1 budget activity, 
activity group, and sub-activity group for each of the active, 
defense-wide, reserve, and National Guard components. For each 
O-1 budget activity, activity group, and sub-activity group, 
these reports should include the budget request and actual 
obligation amount, the distribution of unallocated 
congressional adjustments to the budget request, all 
adjustments made by the Department in establishing the Base for 
Reprogramming (DD Form 1414) report, all adjustments resulting 
from below threshold reprogrammings, and all adjustments 
resulting from prior approval reprogramming requests.

            OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE SPECIAL INTEREST ITEMS

    Items for which additional funds have been provided or have 
been specifically reduced as shown in the project level tables 
or in paragraphs using the phrase ``only for'' or ``only to'' 
in the Committee report are congressional special interest 
items for the purpose of the Base for Reprogramming (DD Form 
1414). Each of these items must be carried on the DD Form 1414 
at the stated amount as specifically addressed in the Committee 
report. Below Threshold Reprogrammings may not be used to 
either restore or reduce funding from congressional special 
interest items as identified on the DD Form 1414.

                   OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE OVERVIEW

    Readiness.--The Committee recommends an additional 
$1,450,000,000 in title VIII and $1,000,000,000 in title IX of 
this act to be transferred to the operation and maintenance 
accounts and be divided proportionately among the services and 
the National Guard and reserve components. This funding shall 
be used only to improve military readiness, including increased 
training, depot maintenance, and base operations support. None 
of the funding provided may be used for recruiting, marketing, 
or advertising programs. The funding provided is a 
congressional special interest item. The Secretary of Defense 
and the Service Secretaries are directed to submit a detailed 
spending plan by sub-activity group to the House and Senate 
Appropriations Committees not less than 30 days prior to the 
obligation of these funds. These transfers may be implemented 
30 days after congressional notification unless an objection is 
received from either the House or Senate Appropriations 
Committees.
    Civilian Workforce.--The Committee expects the Department 
of Defense to maintain a stable, effective, right-sized 
civilian cadre. The Committee recognizes the critical role that 
the civilian workforce plays every day in ensuring the mission 
success of the Armed Forces and fully funds the 1.6 percent pay 
raise for civilian personnel as requested.
    Workforce Management.--The Committee supports a workforce 
management plan that is fair for all sectors of the workforce. 
Decisions on sourcing new work, expanding existing 
responsibilities, or transferring functions currently performed 
by civilian personnel or contractors to performance by military 
personnel must not proceed without comparing the costs 
according to the Department's own methodology. Therefore, 
decisions whether to assign new work which is not inherently 
governmental, closely associated with inherently governmental 
functions, or critical to military, civilian, or contractor 
personnel, shall be based on the results of the costing 
methodology laid out in Department of Defense Instruction 
[DODI] 7041.04. Additionally, before converting functions 
performed by civilian personnel or contractors to performance 
by military personnel that are not required by law or 
regulation to be performed by military personnel, the 
Department shall adhere to its own costing methodology laid out 
in DODI 7041.04.
    Contract Services Spending.--The Committee is concerned 
that the Department of Defense does not have adequate policies, 
procedures, and controls in place to enforce limitations on the 
annual amounts expended on contracted services. There is 
further concern that not all contracted services are being 
subjected to spending limitations because of the exclusion of 
contracted services involving Economy Act transfers between and 
within Department of Defense components. Additionally, because 
of the disparity between the levels of contracted services 
captured in the Inventory of Contracts for Services, required 
under section 2330a of title 10, United States Code, and what 
the Department budgets for contracted services, it appears as 
though the Department does not deliberately plan for most 
contracted services. The Committee urges the Under Secretary of 
Defense (Comptroller) to review the efforts of the financial 
management and acquisition communities to implement effective 
control mechanisms for contracted services spending.
    Operation and Maintenance Budget Justification.--The 
Committee commends the Department for the improvements in the 
Operation and Maintenance [O&M;] budget materials made over the 
past several years. To further inform the congressional review, 
the Committee directs the following actions:
  --The budget justification materials shall include the OP-8B: 
        Total Civilian Personnel Costs for every appropriation 
        as a part of the President's budget justification for 
        fiscal year 2018 and thereafter.
  --Every subactivity group in O&M; that funds recruiting and 
        advertising activities shall include the budget profile 
        broken out by recruiting and advertising for the prior 
        year, current year, and budget year as a part of the 
        performance criteria in the OP-5 exhibit. This shall be 
        provided with the President's budget justification for 
        fiscal year 2018 and thereafter.
  --Each OP-5 exhibit includes a personnel summary which 
        provides helpful information about the civilian 
        workforce. However, the way it is displayed includes 
        memo entries for military technicians and reimbursable 
        civilians, which makes it difficult to quickly analyze 
        direct hire full time equivalents [FTEs]. The Office of 
        the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) is 
        directed to revise the personnel summary section of the 
        OP-5 exhibit to maintain the categories of information 
        provided (including military technicians and 
        reimbursable civilians) but to breakout the numbers 
        without using memo entries.
  --The Department's Financial Management Regulations [FMR] 
        directs the services and defense agencies to itemize 
        major program changes and provide the baseline in 
        dollars to which the increase or decrease applies on 
        the OP-5 exhibit. The Department of the Navy is 
        directed to use the most specific programmatic baseline 
        possible, regardless of whether or not the program 
        baseline is listed in the performance criteria.
  --The FMR provides specific instructions for the performance 
        criteria for base operations support (Exhibit OP-5 Base 
        Support Program (Attachment 8)). The Air Force is 
        directed to follow this outline; particularly the 
        instruction that says that the sum of amounts must 
        match the Base Support total in the O-1 exhibit.
  --The Department of the Air Force is encouraged to consider 
        consolidating the Base Support and Facilities 
        Sustainment, Restoration and Modernization budget line 
        items from four budget activities down to one budget 
        activity.
  --The Department of the Air Force and the Marine Corps are 
        encouraged to begin utilizing OP-32 line 990 
        Information Technology Contract Support Services.
  --The Office of Economic Adjustment's budget documentation in 
        O&M; Defense-wide shall include the budget profile of 
        each major program for the prior year, current year, 
        and budget year as a part of the performance criteria 
        in the OP-5 exhibit. Examples of major programs would 
        be Program Assistance, Defense Industry Adjustment, and 
        Guam.
    Tobacco Use in the Military.--Tobacco use is the leading 
cause of preventable death in the United States, with more than 
480,000 deaths attributable to cigarette smoking each year. The 
Department of Defense has affirmed the goal of a tobacco-free 
military, and has implemented a range of programs including 
public education campaigns, the banning of all tobacco use 
during basic training, and the prohibition of tobacco use by 
instructors in the presence of students. The Committee supports 
the Secretary of Defense's Policy Memorandum 16-001 from April 
8, 2016, directing the military services ``to ensure a 
comprehensive tobacco policy that assists with preventing 
initiation of tobacco use, helping those who want to quit using 
tobacco succeed, and decreasing exposure to second-hand smoke 
for all our people.'' As a result, the Committee retains a 
provision from the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 
2016 (Public Law 114-113) directing the elimination of the 
price subsidy provided to tobacco products at military 
exchanges.
    Voluntary Military Education Programs--Tracking Outcomes.--
The Committee remains concerned about the lack of information 
available on the outcomes of students receiving Tuition 
Assistance and My Career Advancement Account [MyCAA] benefits. 
The Committee directed the Secretary of Defense to submit a 
report tracking such outcomes of each of these programs on or 
before June 1, 2016, as part of the Department of Defense 
Appropriations Act, 2016 (Public Law 114-113). The Committee 
looks forward to receiving this report as soon as possible, and 
it shall include, but not be limited to, the following data 
totals for the most recent calendar year available: an 
aggregate graduation rate, loan default rate, and average 
indebtedness. Additionally, the report shall then disaggregate 
the data to show these same metrics by sector: public, private 
for-profit, and private not-for-profit. Finally, the report 
shall include the percentage of servicemembers utilizing the 
Top-Up program for voluntary military education and the average 
dollar amount of usage. The Department is also encouraged to 
make an effort to gather data on the jobs attained after 
graduation, specifically whether those jobs can be reasonably 
said to be in the field of study identified in the students' 
education plans.
    Voluntary Military Education Programs--Enforcing Memorandum 
of Understanding.--The Committee supports the Department of 
Defense's commitment to enforcing the terms of the current 
Memorandum of Understanding [MOU] with all educational 
institutions providing educational programs through the 
Department of Defense tuition assistance program. The Committee 
is also supportive of the Department's efforts to increase 
participating institutions' understanding of their contractual 
obligations as MOU signatories and the procedures for 
enforcement as outlined in Department of Defense Instruction 
[DODI] 1322.25. The Committee urges the Department to maintain 
vigorous defense of these responsibilities in order to protect 
the integrity and quality of voluntary military education 
programs.
    Item Unique Identification Implementation.--The Committee 
supports the Department of Defense's goal of enhancing asset 
visibility through item-unique identification [IUID] and 
automatic identification technology/automatic identification 
and data capture [AIT/AIDC] processes, but remains concerned 
with the level of the compliance with its own IUID policy which 
was released on September 3, 2015. The Committee believes the 
Department of Defense must improve its efforts to capture 
meaningful data and mark, track and verify assets to enable 
life-cycle management, implement asset valuation/accountability 
for audit readiness, and support counterfeit part risk 
reduction. Any successful asset visibility or AIT/AIDC strategy 
requires continuous identification, integration, and monitoring 
of efforts. The committee urges the Department and the services 
to increase their oversight of the implementation of IUID and 
other AIT/AIDC policies.
    Counterfeit Parts.--The Department of Defense has taken 
significant steps since legislation was enacted in 2012 to 
reduce the risk of counterfeit electronic parts entering into 
Department of Defense weapon systems. Although responsibility 
for eliminating risk of counterfeit parts belongs to industry 
suppliers to the Department of Defense at all tiers, the 
Committee encourages the Secretary of Defense to be proactive 
about identifying, developing, and validating independent tools 
that suppliers could easily use to rapidly identify counterfeit 
electronics in the supply chain accurately and at low cost.
    Training Ranges.--The services rely on national air ranges 
and military operating areas to provide realistic combined-arms 
training for pilots against a variety of targets and simulated 
threats. The Committee is aware that the services augment the 
national ranges by maintaining a network of regional air 
training ranges with air to ground targeting areas that are 
essential to maintain the proficiency and readiness for pilots 
and aircrews who do not have consistent access to national 
ranges. Regional ranges and exercises have the potential to 
offer valuable cost savings measures and a means for flying 
units to satisfy training requirements in a limited fiscal 
environment. Therefore, the Committee encourages the Secretary 
of Defense to establish an investment strategy for the 
preservation and enhancement of regional ranges and exercises 
needed to provide live training for aircrews across the full 
spectrum of operations.
    Federal Fleet Management Transparency and Metrics.--The 
Committee encourages the Secretary of Defense to maintain 
supporting documentation on the methods the Department of 
Defense uses for determining optimal fleet inventories and 
justification for any deviation from the General Services 
Administration's Federal Property Management Regulations.
    Children's Advocacy Centers [CACs].--Children's Advocacy 
Centers [CACs] are a community-based, public-private 
partnership that brings together professionals from law 
enforcement, prosecution, medical, mental health, child 
protective services, and victim advocacy agencies to pursue the 
truth in child abuse investigations. The Committee applauds 
existing efforts undertaken by military bases to enter into 
voluntary memoranda of understanding with CACs in their 
communities, which allow CACs to provide their services to 
military families affected by child abuse. The Committee 
encourages the Department of Defense and military bases across 
the country to continue to voluntarily collaborate with CACs in 
their communities to serve the best interests of child abuse 
victims within military families.
    Cyber Kinetic Combat Environment.--The Committee is 
encouraged by current progress to address training shortfalls 
in the cyber kinetic combat environment. Particularly, the 
Committee supports the Air Force's efforts to identify a 
training environment where they can replicate combat conditions 
and perform simultaneous operations, cyber-enabled kinetic 
operations, or physically-enabled cyber operations. Adversaries 
continue to develop asymmetric and cyber capabilities which put 
U.S. and allied forces at risk. The Committee encourages 
developing this training as a priority for the Department of 
Defense.
    Transparency Requirement.--The Committee is aware that the 
Department of Defense does a variety of different types of 
advertising. The Committee directs the Secretary of Defense to 
clearly state within the text, audio or video used for 
advertising or educational purposes, including emails or 
advertising/posting on the Internet, that the communication is 
printed, published, or produced and disseminated at U.S. 
taxpayer expense.
    Resourcing the Arctic Strategy.--As previously expressed in 
Senate Report 114-63, the Committee requires greater budgetary 
detail on amounts included in the President's request for 
implementation of the Department of Defense 2013 Arctic 
Strategy. The Committee notes that contrary to previous 
direction, that information was not provided with the 
submission of the fiscal year 2017 President's budget. The 
Committee reiterates its direction contained in Senate Report 
114-63 for the fiscal year 2018 President's budget, and directs 
that not more than 50 percent of funds appropriated for the 
Office of Under Secretary of Defense (Policy) may be obligated 
or expended until the previously requested information has been 
provided to the congressional defense committees.
    Cyber Mission Force Training and Readiness.--The Committee 
supports efforts by the Department of Defense to grow a capable 
and trained cyber mission force, however, the Department is 
experiencing challenges in providing necessary training for 
military personnel in a timeframe that meets the demand. Given 
the urgent need to develop a capable cyber mission force, the 
Committee recommends that the Secretary of Defense, in 
coordination with the Service Secretaries and the Active and 
Reserve components, develop a strategy to address the current 
training delay, to include procedures and plans to increase 
training opportunities. The strategy should include an 
assessment of the feasibility of expanding training to sites 
with Active or Reserve components with secure infrastructure 
and qualified cyber personnel, including aggressor units and 
cyber red team units, capable of training military personnel in 
various cyber missions.
    Cyber Mission Force Training Curriculum.--The Committee 
recognizes the need for the U.S. military to have the most 
competitive cyber-security force in the world, both in offense 
and defense. The Committee also recognizes that hacking 
contests, such as the CyberStakes platform, offer a scalable 
platform that achieves an ever increasing level of competence 
among participants. The Committee directs the Director of Force 
Readiness and Training to develop, as part of the cyber 
training curriculum, a competitive hacking environment that 
includes the ability for participants to build novel working 
exploits and defend against them. The Director shall report 
back to the Committee within 120 days after enactment of this 
act on the training environment and steps that will be taken to 
measure participant capabilities.
    National Security Planning.--The Committee commends the 
Under Secretary of Defense for Policy on its steps to mitigate 
the national security implications of environmental impacts, as 
required by Senate Report 113-211 (July 17, 2014). The 
Committee supports the Under Secretary's continued direction to 
address the most serious risks for each of the geographic 
Combatant Commands, and how those commands are integrating 
mitigation of those risks into their planning processes. The 
Committee encourages the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy 
and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to continue to 
assess the risks to national security posed by environmental 
impacts as they plan and execute the National Security 
Strategy.

    Excess Carryover in the Army Working Capital Fund.--The 
Committee recommends an adjustment to Operation and 
Maintenance, Army based on excess carryover in the Army Working 
Capital Fund. Carryover, or unfilled orders, represents the 
dollar value of the production orders (parts, labor, and 
overhead) that have been ordered and funded by customers but 
not completed by the industrial operations activities at the 
end of each fiscal year. Some carryover is necessary, as it 
provides lead time to assemble necessary workforce skill sets, 
to establish supply chains. Carryover also prevents production 
line stoppages and ensures the activities have funded work to 
provide a smooth transition between fiscal years. Therefore, 
for budgeting purposes, there are metrics that the services use 
to calculate an allowable amount of carryover. But the fiscal 
year 2017 President's budget request shows that the Army's 
projection for carryover will be above the allowable limit.
    The Committee urges Army leadership to continue monitoring 
carryover and production goals on a recurring basis. The 
Committee also encourages the Army to focus on further reducing 
carryover by leveraging new policy and process improvements 
aimed at increasing production, improving customer-provider 
communication, and strengthening controls over the acceptance 
of new orders. Finally, the Committee affirms that the key to 
reducing carryover below the allowable limit is for the Army to 
perform more work on orders than the amount of orders received 
in a year.
    Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.--The Committee is 
supportive of the Army's decision to delay the removal of 2,600 
Soldiers from the 4-25 Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Airborne) 
stationed at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson [JBER]. The 
decision to retain JBER's force structure signals that the Army 
remains dedicated to supporting the strategic balance to the 
Pacific, preserving a leading role in the Arctic, and 
preventing North Korean and Russian aggression by maintaining 
key assets in Alaska. However, the Committee questions the 
Army's decision to delay instead of reverse its plans for JBER 
and expects a continued effort by the Army to recognize the 
mission and strategic value of the 4-25 as the only airborne 
brigade in the Pacific.
    Productivity Enhancement Program.--The Department of 
Defense's organic depot maintenance capability is vital to our 
military's sustainment infrastructure. The Committee encourages 
the Secretary of the Army to modernize the organic depots' 
Electronic Test and Measurement Equipment [ET&ME;] and Product 
Lifecycle Management Software to allow cost savings in future 
maintenance and calibration expenditures.
    Army Training and Certification Tracking System [ATCTS].--
The Army Training and Certification Tracking System provides 
managers a capability to report and manage training and 
certification statistics for the Information Assurance [IA] 
workforce to ensure the security of information technology. The 
Committee recognizes the effectiveness of this program and 
encourages the Secretary of the Army to consider expanding it 
based on the growing threat of cyber-attacks and the need to 
ensure personnel have the proper training and certification to 
deal with appropriate sensitive material.
    Soldier for Life--Transition Assistance Program.--The 
Soldier for Life-Transition Assistance Program [SFL-TAP] 
provides transitioning and retiring soldiers, family members, 
and Army civilians job training assistance and helps develop 
skills they require to obtain appropriate employment and to 
maximize the use of benefits earned through new employment. 
SFL-TAP also provides outreach services to soldiers stationed 
in remote and isolated locations through the use of 24/7 
virtual counseling or Mobile Transition Teams. The Committee 
recognizes the need to successfully transition soldiers from 
military to civilian life and the requirement to transition 
them with the skills and certifications necessary to lead a 
productive civilian life and encourages the Army to continue 
robust support for this program.

    Naval Shipyard Apprentice Program.--The Committee directs 
that during fiscal year 2017 the Navy shall induct classes of 
no fewer than 100 apprentices, respectively, at each of the 
naval shipyards. The Committee further directs the Navy to 
include the costs of the fiscal year 2018 class of apprentices 
in its budget request.
    U.S. Coast Guard.--The Committee is aware that Department 
of Defense [DOD] regulations currently restrict DOD mission 
appropriated funded activities from offering reimbursable rates 
to non-DOD agencies. This restriction forces the Navy to charge 
the U.S. Coast Guard fully burdened rates for drydocking 
services at Navy shipyards rather than reimbursable rates. 
Therefore, the Committee directs that funds appropriated under 
Operation and Maintenance, Navy may be used to pay overhead 
costs incurred by a Naval Shipyard when drydocking U.S. Coast 
Guard ships.
    Ship Overhaul Opportunistic Part-Marking Compliance.--The 
Committee supports the Navy's efforts to improve compliance 
with its Opportunistic Part-Marking policy during ship 
overhauls and repairs at shipyards across the country. 
Compliance with the policy will help the Navy produce clean 
financial audits, lower total life-cycle cost, identify 
counterfeit parts, and save taxpayer funding through improved 
productivity, efficiency, maintenance, and logistical planning.
    Advanced Skills Management Legacy System Upgrades.--The 
Committee is concerned that the Navy is not giving full 
consideration to commercial-off-the-shelf [COTS] software 
solutions. The Secretary of the Navy is encouraged to use the 
best value procurement methods when upgrading legacy software 
systems.
    Joint Interagency Task Force West [JIATF-West].--The 
Committee is concerned that the current organizational 
structure of the Joint Interagency Task Force West [JIATF-West] 
is impacting the resource allocation between headquarters 
activities and operational programs and tasks. The Committee 
recommends that JIATF-West continue to review its 
organizational structure to realign staff in support of 
missions associated with Pacific Command's Theatre Campaign 
Plan.

    Arctic Search and Rescue requirements.--The Committee notes 
the increased utilization of the Arctic region by commercial 
air and vessel traffic and believes that this requires an 
update of search and rescue requirements in the region. The 
Committee understands that the Alaska Air National Guard 176th 
Wing is the closest dedicated rescue force, but maintains only 
a single Arctic sustainment package for alerts and partial 
package for training. The Secretary of the Air Force is 
directed to review Arctic search and rescue requirements and to 
submit with the fiscal year 2018 President's budget a report 
detailing the results of this review.
    Air Force Weather Monitoring.--The Committee recognizes the 
importance of Air Force weather radars for the safety of 
military aircrews and for their contributions to weather 
forecasting in accordance with the interagency Next Generation 
Weather Radar [NEXRAD] network. The Secretary of the Air Force 
is directed to provide 30 days advance notification to the 
congressional defense committees of any proposed divestment of 
NEXRAD radars or associated support activities.
    Cyber Command Elevation.--The Committee understands that 
the Department of Defense and Congress are considering 
elevating Cyber Command to a full Combatant Command. The 
Committee recognizes that if such a transition takes place, it 
will take time to develop staffing plans, hire and clear needed 
personnel, and transfer military personnel to the new Command. 
The Committee believes that funds from within the fiscal year 
2017 budget for Cyber Command are sufficient to meet the 
Command's early needs. The Committee expects that additional 
funds will be needed in fiscal year 2018 to support an elevated 
Cyber Command and directs the Secretary of Defense to present 
its plan for necessary funding in the fiscal year 2018 budget 
request if Cyber Command elevation is approved.

    Wargaming.--The Office of the Secretary of Defense's budget 
request included $35,000,000 for wargaming initiatives that 
will pursue innovative ways to sustain and advance military 
superiority and improve business operations throughout the 
Department of Defense. These resources will be allocated 
through a rigorous process, overseen by the Quad Chairs (Office 
of the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, the Joint Staff, 
Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation [CAPE], and the Office 
of Net Assessment [ONA]) and reporting to the Deputy Secretary 
of Defense. The Wargaming Quad Chairs will evaluate funding 
proposals from the Combatant Commanders and military services, 
with the Joint Staff overseeing full execution of approved 
initiatives. The Committee is supportive of the Department of 
Defense's efforts to combat emerging threats and to challenge 
adversaries. Therefore, the Secretary of Defense is directed to 
submit a quarterly report on the wargaming initiatives that are 
funded in fiscal year 2017. The reports shall include the title 
of each initiative, the recipient, the amount funded and a 
short explanation of the objective. The reports shall be 
submitted to the congressional defense committees not later 
than 30 days after the close of each quarter of the fiscal 
year.
    Long-Term Temporary Per Diem.--In November, 2014, the 
Department of Defense [DOD] implemented a change to the Joint 
Travel Regulation [JTR] cutting per diem rates during long-term 
temporary duty travel. The Committee is concerned about the 
effect of the flat rate per diem policy on long-term temporary 
duty travelers. This policy has discouraged experienced 
employees of shipyards, depots, and arsenals from across the 
DOD from volunteering to fulfill mission critical requirements 
due to concerns of paying for expenses related to official 
travel out of pocket. The Committee is aware of legislative 
proposals and administrative policy that allow DOD to waive the 
flat rate per diem. However, the Committee is concerned that 
this waiver authority has generated greater uncertainty in the 
DOD workforce, particularly since the authority is split across 
proposed legislation and administrative policy, with meals and 
incidentals covered by pending legislation, and lodging by 
policy. Moreover, the Committee is concerned that these various 
waiver authorities create additional obstacles that discourage 
DOD's most experienced professionals from volunteering for 
mission essential work. The Committee worries that this affects 
the savings that accrue to DOD by adding maintenance days as a 
result of having less experienced workers volunteering for 
long-term missions.
    The Committee notes that section 623 of the National 
Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016 (Public Law 114-
49) directed a review by the Comptroller General of the United 
States on the impact DOD's long-term temporary duty per diem 
policy has on affected employees. The Committee will carefully 
consider the findings of this review and will continue to work 
with stakeholders on potential policy changes, including a 
reversal of the flat rate per diem policy on long-term 
temporary duty travel if such a change becomes prudent. While 
the Committee awaits the results of that study, DOD is 
encouraged to allow the Service Secretaries to waive the per 
diem rates of long-term duty travelers up to the full amount 
based on actual costs incurred.
    Defense Language National Security Education Office.--The 
Committee recognizes that, in partnership with universities 
across the country, the National Security Education Program 
provides critical training for servicemembers and government 
officials in a number of languages and strategic cultures, 
including those of the Arab world, Afghanistan, China, and 
Iran. The Committee encourages the Department of Defense to 
continue placing a high priority on these programs to ensure 
warfighters receive the language and culture training needed to 
complete their missions effectively.
    Counter-Lord's Resistance Army.--The Department of Defense 
shall continue its support of Operation Observant Compass to 
enable regional partners to continue to conduct operations 
against Joseph Kony and the Lord's Resistance Army.
    African Standby Force.--The Committee recognizes that the 
rapid deployment capability envisioned for the African Standby 
Force [ASF] has the potential to counter emerging crises and 
provide greatly needed peacekeeping support in Africa. However, 
this capability has been slow to develop, faces inadequate 
troop contributions, and has yet to reach full operational 
capability more than a decade since its inception. As the 
combatant command overseeing U.S. military policy in Africa, 
Africa Command [AFRICOM] may have a constructive role in 
engaging the African Union's Regional Economic Communities who 
are tasked to provide the necessary capabilities to bring ASF 
to full operational capability.
    In the report accompanying the Senate version of the 
Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2016 (Senate Report 
114-63), the Committee directed the Secretary of Defense to 
provide a report to the congressional defense committees not 
later than 120 days after enactment, on AFRICOM's capabilities 
to engage the Regional Economic Communities. The report was to 
include an assessment of the military capacity shortfalls, to 
include logistics and airlift that must be addressed as African 
nations stand up a capable response force. To date, the report 
has not been delivered to the committees. The Committee expects 
an expeditious response from the Secretary of Defense to last 
year's request and expects that future reports will be 
delivered in a more timely manner.
    Special Victims' Counsel Program.--The Committee remains 
concerned with the level of sexual assault in the military and 
supports the Department's continuing efforts to strengthen its 
sexual assault prevention and response program. The needs of 
victims of sexual assault for legal advice and guidance are 
particularly acute. To ensure that the Department continues to 
make progress protecting a victim's confidentiality and ending 
alienation during the investigation and prosecution of their 
case, the Committee recommends an additional $25,000,000 for 
implementation of the Special Victims' Counsel Program across 
the services.
    Youth Serving Organizations.--The Committee recognizes that 
the dependent children of uniformed servicemembers often 
experience turbulence and instability during their 
developmental years as a result of frequent deployments, 
permanent change of station moves, and training requirements 
borne by their parents in the service of the nation. The 
Committee further recognizes the importance of youth outreach 
programs that provide military children opportunity and 
mentorship as they cope with the turbulence that often 
accompanies military service. Therefore, the Committee 
recommends an additional $5,000,000 to support youth serving 
organizations and to expand efforts to support free memberships 
for military children who reside off base and wish to join off-
installation sponsored youth serving organizations.

279). Specifically, the dollar threshold for reprogramming 
funds will remain at $20,000,000 for procurement and 
$10,000,000 for research, development, test and evaluation.
    Also, the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) is 
directed to continue to provide the congressional defense 
committees quarterly, spreadsheet-based DD Form 1416 reports 
for service and defense-wide accounts in titles III and IV of 
this act. Reports for titles III and IV shall comply with 
guidance specified in the explanatory statement accompanying 
the Department of Defense Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 
2006. The Department shall continue to follow the limitation 
that prior approval reprogrammings are set at either the 
specified dollar threshold or 20 percent of the procurement or 
research, development, test and evaluation line, whichever is 
less. These thresholds are cumulative from the base for 
reprogramming value as modified by any adjustments. Therefore, 
if the combined value of transfers into or out of a procurement 
(P-1), or a research, development, test and evaluation (R-1) 
line exceeds the identified threshold, the Secretary of Defense 
must submit a prior approval reprogramming to the congressional 
defense committees. In addition, guidelines on the application 
of prior approval reprogramming procedures for congressional 
special interest items are established elsewhere in this 
report.

                          PROCUREMENT OVERVIEW

    Army Organic Industrial Base.--The Committee directs the 
Secretary of the Army to provide 45-day written notification to 
the congressional defense committees prior to the Secretary 
approving civilian reductions in force that will result in an 
employment loss of 50 or more full-time employees at any Army 
organic industrial base facility. The notification shall 
include the impact that the proposed reduction in force will 
have on the ability to maintain the organic industrial base 
critical manufacturing capabilities as delineated in the Army 
Organic Industrial Base Strategy Report, a detailed accounting 
of the costs of implementing the reduction in force, and an 
assessment of the cost of, and time necessary, to restore any 
lost capability to meet future organic wartime manufacturing 
needs.
    Arsenal Sustainment Initiative.--The Committee supports the 
ongoing efforts of the Department of the Army to develop the 
Army Organic Industrial Base Strategy. This process is 
identifying manufacturing capabilities at each organic 
industrial facility that are critical for the country to 
sustain in wartime and peacetime if the U.S. military is called 
to act. However, the Committee is concerned that while the Army 
Organic Industrial Base Strategy is identifying capabilities, 
it has not prioritized them in annual budget requests to 
Congress. In particular, the Nation's arsenals are at risk of 
not having the capacity to respond rapidly to meet the 
Department's needs. Addressing this concern, the Army in 
comments provided to the Government Accountability Office [GAO] 
in advance of its December 2015 report, Actions Needed to 
Identify and Sustain Critical Capabilities, the Army concurred 
with the GAO's recommendation that it must issue ``clear and 
detailed implementation guidance, such as an instruction or 
guidebook, on the process for conducting make-or-buy analysis 
in a consistent manner.'' The Committee directs the Secretary 
of the Army to issue such guidance as soon as possible. The 
Committee further directs the Secretary to assign the arsenals 
sufficient workload to maintain the critical capabilities 
identified in the Army Organic Industrial Base Strategy Report 
and ensure cost efficiency and technical competence in 
peacetime, while preserving the ability to provide an effective 
and timely response to mobilizations, national defense 
contingency situations, and other emergency requirements. 
Finally, the Committee notes that it has not yet received 
detailed recommendations from the Secretary of Defense on how 
the Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps can better use the 
arsenals for their manufacturing needs, or what opportunities 
may exist for the arsenals to assist the services and the 
Defense Logistics Agency to procure for our spare parts 
inventory, as required by Senate Report 114-63.
    Physical Access Control Systems.--The Committee remains 
concerned with control systems at base access points and 
encourages the Department to continue efforts to standardize 
these systems across the services while finding the most 
affordable solutions.
    Equipment Modernization Reporting.--The Committee continues 
to support maintaining fully modernized reserve components. 
However, the methods used by the services to characterize and 
report the status of military equipment modernization hinder 
Congress' ability to determine relative levels of modernization 
across the active and reserve components. The services must 
establish and codify modernization principles that articulate 
the definition of the term ``modern equipment'' in such a way 
as to allow for transparent appropriation decisions. The 
Committee also notes that equipment listed on service divesture 
lists is not acceptable for characterization as ``modern'' if 
fielded to the reserve components. The Committee directs the 
Secretary of Defense to promulgate service standards for 
reporting modern equipment in time for those standards to be 
reflected in the National Guard and Reserve Equipment Report 
for Fiscal Year 2018.
    Equipment Transparency Report.--The Committee strongly 
supports the Department of Defense's policy of transparency and 
traceability of procurement funding for the reserve components. 
However, the Committee notes that the Department continues to 
have difficulty tracking funding requests for equipment for the 
reserve components. The Equipment Transparency Report, intended 
to provide such visibility, lacks the consistency and 
reliability needed to be definitive and is, by the Department's 
own admission, unreliable. The Committee supports the practice 
of including reserve component funding requests in parent 
service budgets, but seeks a clearer way to determine the 
impact of funding on actual equipment procurement. Therefore, 
the Committee directs the Secretary of Defense to provide a 
report to the congressional defense committees, not later than 
180 days after enactment of this act, outlining improvements or 
alternatives to the Equipment Transparency Report.
    MUOS.--The Committee has previously noted the lack of 
alignment between the space, ground, and user equipment 
segments on various space-based acquisition programs. The 
Mobile User Objective System [MUOS] program has a satellite 
constellation in orbit but few communications terminals 
carrying the MUOS waveform software. The Committee directs the 
Assistant Secretaries for Acquisition for both the Air Force 
and the Navy to provide to the congressional defense 
committees, not later than 180 days after enactment of this 
act, their respective plans to enable current and future 
communications systems with the MUOS capability, including a 
timeline for fielding of the capability.
    Renewables on Military Installations.--The Committee 
recognizes the importance of properly building, maintaining and 
monitoring renewable energy projects on Federal military 
installations. Further, the Committee encourages the Department 
to contract with private entities that operate North American 
Electric Reliability Corporation [NERC] compliant monitoring 
centers; offer training programs for governmental employees; 
and have an established Environment, Health and Safety 
standards program when procuring renewable energy.
    Buy American Compliance.--The Committee is concerned with 
two separate Inspector General reports, required by the 
National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014, that 
found both the Air Force and Navy were not in compliance with 
the Buy American Act and Berry Amendment. Ensuring appropriate 
domestic source requirements are included in contracts and 
strict adherence to these requirements are vital to the health 
of the Defense industrial base. Therefore, the Committee 
encourages the Secretary of Defense to dedicate resources to 
expand training and ensure compliance with the Buy American and 
Berry Amendment.
    Domestic Footwear.--The Committee acknowledges that S. 
2943, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 
2017, as reported, seeks to amend section 418 of title 37 
United States Code to address compliance with domestic source 
requirements for footwear furnished to enlisted members of the 
Armed Forces upon their initial entry into the Armed Forces.
    RQ-7 Shadow.--The Committee understands that the Department 
of the Army is requesting $71,169,000 to upgrade the RQ-7 
Shadow unmanned aerial vehicle. The Committee is supportive of 
the upgrade, but is concerned with the lack of competition. In 
previous budget requests, the new payload has been described as 
an alternative source. However, the Army has informed the 
Committee that the new payload is now being described as an 
upgraded capability to include high definition. As stated in 
the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2016 (Public Law 
114-113), the Committee directed the Secretary of the Army to 
review the acquisition strategy for this upgrade to validate 
sufficient competition exists before awarding the contract. The 
Committee looks forward to the results of this review.
    Technology Procurement.--The Committee is concerned about 
the procurement of sensitive technologies (hardware, software, 
and services) and the potential transfer to nation states of 
concern. Further, the Committee directs the Department of 
Defense to provide a briefing to the congressional defense 
committees on plans to mitigate risks posed by the procurement 
of sensitive technologies.

    Crew-Served Weapons Industrial Base.--Crew-served weapons 
such as the M2 .50 caliber machine gun and the M240 7.62mm 
medium machine gun have been a primary means of firepower for a 
variety of Army combat service support forces. However, the 
Committee is concerned that the programmatic direction for 
these weapons is inconsistent with the Army's broader equipping 
objective, to reduce the soldier's load while increasing the 
capability and reliability of the weapons. The Committee 
directs the Secretary of the Army to submit a report to the 
congressional defense committees, not later than 90 days after 
enactment of this act that outlines the plan to sustain crew-
served weapons and support the individual weapons industrial 
base.

    Conventional Munitions Demilitarization.--The Committee 
notes that at current funding levels the stockpile of 
conventional munitions awaiting demilitarization is projected 
to grow over the Future Years Defense Program. In light of 
current budget constraints, the Committee encourages the 
Secretary of the Army to assess new options for reducing risk, 
enhance efficiencies to achieve cost reduction, and leverage 
expertise from industry and academia to advance affordable 
demilitarization technology.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    HMMWV Modernization.--The Committee recognizes the critical 
role that technologies like antilock brakes and electronic 
stability control play in mitigating rollover accidents, 
although such technologies are not common on military tactical 
wheeled vehicles. The Army and Marine Corps recently completed 
a congressionally mandated study of potential up-armored High 
Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle [HMMWV] automotive 
improvements, which included such technologies. As a result of 
the Modernization Expanded Capability Vehicle-Automotive study, 
the Committee understands that safety-improvement technologies 
exist which could be applied to today's HMMWV fleet. The 
Committee encourages the Army to initiate the necessary 
engineering and logistical analyses necessary to develop and 
compete an engineering proposal for Army up-armored HMMWV 
safety improvement kits as an element of future modernization 
efforts for HMMWVs in the Regular Army, Army National Guard, 
and Army Reserve fleets.
    HMMWV Ambulances.--The Committee notes that the average age 
of ground ambulance fleets within the active and reserve 
components of the Army is 28 years. At current levels of 
investment, these fleets will remain less than 25 percent 
modernized across the Future Years Defense Program, impairing 
the total Army's ability to execute its Federal and State 
missions. The Committee recommends an additional $110,000,000 
for High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle ambulances, of 
which $50,000,000 is intended for the Regular Army, $40,000,000 
for the Army National Guard and $20,000,000 for the Army 
Reserve.
    Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles.--The Committee supports 
the Army's plan to recompete the Family of Medium Tactical 
Vehicles [FMTV] program in light of the significant cost 
savings gained as a result of the 2010 competition. The 
Committee supports the Army's plan, as outlined in the fiscal 
year 2017 budget request, to continue to produce the current 
generation of FMTV through the beginning of production of the 
upgraded FMTV in 2020. This proposal will mitigate risk to the 
FMTV industrial base as the contract is recompeted.
    Tactical Bridging.--The Committee is aware that the Army is 
replacing its aging MK II Bridge Erection Boats [BEB] with a 
newly designed BEB upgraded to meet current survivability, 
transportability, and interoperability requirements. It will 
provide Regular Army, Army National Guard, and Army Reserve 
engineer bridge companies with enhanced capability to conduct 
bridging, dive support, rafting, and patrols. The program 
expects to transition to full rate production in fiscal year 
2017 and eventually procure 379 vessels. The Committee 
encourages the Army maintain close oversight of production to 
keep program costs low and meet planned acquisition objectives.
    Radiation Detection Devices.--The Committee notes that 
shortfalls continue to exist within the reserve components in 
fielding the most current radiation detection devices, 
specifically personal dosimeters. To ensure our troops and 
domestic homeland first responders are provided with the best 
possible protection to monitor against nuclear exposure, the 
Committee encourages the Secretary of the Army to expedite the 
fielding of modern radiation detection equipment across the 
force.

    Marine Corps Aviation Readiness.--The Committee is 
concerned about the state of Marine Corps aviation readiness 
but recognizes that there is a 4-year recovery effort underway 
to get aviation back up to the goal of T-2.0 readiness. While 
the fiscal year 2017 budget request maximizes throughput at 
maintenance depots, recent incidents and press reports about 
spare parts shortages indicate continued attention is 
necessary. The Committee therefore recommends additional 
funding in Aircraft Procurement, Navy for spare parts and other 
needs. The Committee urges the Navy and Marine Corps to 
continue to prioritize restoring aviation readiness.
    Navy Reserve Tactical Aircraft.--The Committee notes that 
the Navy submitted a report to Congress in March 2016 titled, 
Navy Reserve Tactical Aviation Force Recapitalization and 
Modernization. The two Navy Reserve F/A-18 squadrons identified 
in the report provide the Navy's active combat force with 
adversary support and also fulfill the strategic reserve 
mission. The Committee remains concerned about the Navy's 
Strike Fighter Inventory Management strategy, including the 
plan to recapitalize the Navy Reserve's aircraft. The Navy 
Reserve is strained to accomplish its missions and, to make 
matters worse, the aircraft fleet will begin to exceed its 
service life in the next 5 years. Therefore, the Committee 
directs the Navy to provide an update on the implementation of 
the Strike Fighter Inventory Management strategy, to include a 
3-year recapitalization and funding plan for the Navy Reserve's 
two squadrons, with the submission of the fiscal year 2018 
budget request.

    Polar Icebreaker Recapitalization Project.--As detailed in 
the report accompanying the Senate version of the fiscal year 
2015 Department of Defense Appropriations Bill (Senate Report 
113-211), the Committee is concerned that the United States is 
operating an icebreaker fleet consisting of only one heavy and 
one medium vessel. This falls short of U.S. requirements which 
independent analysis has determined requires three heavy and 
three medium icebreakers to cover our Nation's needs in the 
Arctic and Antarctic. Recognizing the strategic importance of 
polar operations to our Nation's future security and 
prosperity, the Committee strongly supports proposals to 
accelerate new construction of icebreaker ships.
    In August of last year, the President of the United States 
visited the Arctic and upon his return announced plans to 
accelerate planned icebreaker construction from 2022 to 2020. 
During this announcement, the President expressed his 
commitment to work with Congress to make sure the United States 
produces an icebreaker fleet sufficient to meet our economic, 
commercial, maritime and national security needs. The Committee 
believes this was an important step to ensuring year-round 
access to the Polar Regions and increasing U.S. Government's 
capability in these areas.
    Further, the current age and condition of the operational 
U.S. polar icebreaker fleet, the Polar Star and the Healy, 
validates the need to pursue an accelerated replacement 
timeline. The Polar Star entered service in 1976 and is now 
well beyond its original 30-year service life. The ship was 
refurbished and reentered service in 2012 for an intended 
additional service period of 7 to 10 years--ending between 2019 
and 2022. The Healy, the last icebreaker produced for the U.S. 
Government, was funded more than 25 years ago by the Department 
of Defense Appropriations Act, 1990 (Public Law 101-165).
    While the effort to speed polar icebreaker acquisition by 2 
years is commendable, the Committee believes more must be done 
now to expand our capabilities and to defend interests in the 
Polar Regions. In addition to concerns about our current fleet, 
the Committee notes that Russia has roughly 40 operational 
icebreakers and 11 icebreakers either planned or under 
construction. Therefore, to further accelerate production, the 
Committee recommends $1,000,000,000 in the ``Shipbuilding and 
Conversion, Navy'' account to construct domestically the first 
U.S. Coast Guard operated ship for the Polar Icebreaker 
Recapitalization Project. In order to achieve an earlier start 
on this project and to reduce cost and schedule risk, the 
Committee encourages the selection of an in-service U.S. hull 
design and the setting of limitations on overall ship 
specifications and requirements. The Committee directs the 
Secretary of Defense in coordination with the Secretary of 
Homeland Security to submit a report to the appropriate 
congressional committees not later than September 30, 2016 
which provides polar icebreaker requirements, preferred design, 
overall acquisition strategy, and a breakout of funds necessary 
to support the acquisition.
    Expeditionary Fast Transport [EFT].--The Department of 
Defense Appropriations Act, 2016 (Public Law 114-113) provided 
funds for a 12th Expeditionary Fast Transport ship, formerly 
known as the Joint High Speed Vessel. The Committee has 
supported the construction of additional EFTs and notes a 
previous requirement for 18 ships. The Department decided to 
assume risk with the overall ship requirement due to fiscal 
constraints and reduced the program procurement objective when 
it submitted its budget for fiscal year 2013. As these ships 
are deployed, the Committee understands that Combatant and 
Fleet Commanders are identifying additional missions for the 
ships since they provide a means for fast intra-theater 
transportation of troops, military vehicles and equipment which 
thereby free up the more limited high-end platforms for more 
appropriate missions. While the Committee does not recommend 
funding for an additional ship in fiscal year 2017, the 
Committee supports a Navy reassessment of the overall 
procurement objective to determine if there is a requirement 
for more ships to meet Fleet demand.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    KC-46 Tanker.--The Committee supports the budget request of 
$2,884,591,000 to procure 15 KC-46 Tanker aircraft; however, 
the Committee is concerned with several aspects of the program.
    First, the fiscal year 2017 request was originally planned 
to be the first year of full rate production with a maximum 
production quantity of 15 aircraft per year, requiring approval 
from the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, 
Technology, and Logistics [AT&L;]. Unfortunately, the full rate 
production decision has been delayed and the fiscal year 2017 
aircraft buy was downgraded to a low rate initial buy at the 
same quantity but without a formal review by AT&L.;
    Second, the program has only completed roughly 20 percent 
of development flight test and recently identified a critical 
issue with the refueling boom. The Air Force is still 
performing testing to determine if the solution requires 
software or hardware changes, or both.
    Third, the Committee is concerned with the numerous delays 
in key milestones. Specifically, the approval to begin 
production (milestone C) has slipped 10-11 months; initial 
operational test and evaluation has slipped 11 months; and 
delivery of the first aircraft has slipped 9 months. The 
current schedule indicates that all of these milestones are now 
projected to occur near the contractually established delivery 
dates leaving little schedule margin to meet the required 
assets availability requirement of August 2018.
    The Committee fully funds the fiscal year 2017 budget 
request to maintain the acquisition strategy, with concerns 
noted above, and directs Secretary of the Air Force to continue 
providing quarterly program updates.
    UH-1 Replacement.--The Committee recognizes the urgent need 
to replace the current Air Force fleet of UH-1N aircraft 
supporting the emergency response mission of the 
intercontinental ballistic missile [ICBM] sites. Therefore, the 
Committee recommends $75,000,000 for the Air Force and directs 
the Air Force to expedite procurement of replacement aircraft 
in compliance with 10 U.S.C. 2304.
    Additionally, the Committee directs the Commander of the 
United States Strategic Command [USSTRATCOM], not later than 30 
days after the date of enactment of this act, to submit a 
classified report to the congressional defense committees that 
includes (1) a description of potential threats to the security 
of ICBM sites as a result of the UH-1N not meeting current 
mission requirements; (2) a list of helicopter capabilities 
needed to meet current mission requirements; (3) the minimum 
number of aircraft needed for emergency response mission; and 
(4) an assessment of the security risks associated with any 
shortfalls identified.
    Therefore, until the UH-1N aircraft supporting the ICBM 
sites are replaced, the Committee directs the Secretary of 
Defense, in coordination with the Secretary of the Air Force, 
Secretary of the Army, and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of 
Staff, to mitigate the air support security risks with 
additional air support. Further, the Committee directs the 
Secretary of Defense, not later than 180 days after the date of 
enactment of this act, to submit a report, with certification 
from the Commander, USSTRATCOM, that the security risk 
mitigation actions taken do effectively address the shortfalls 
identified by the report from USSTRATCOM.
    Compass Call.--In fiscal year 2016, the Air Force requested 
to retire six Compass Call aircraft. Due to the unique and high 
demand capability that the Compass Call aircraft provide, the 
Committee directed the Air Force to maintain the entire fleet. 
Recently, the Air Force revised the operating requirements of 
the Compass Call aircraft and submitted a proposal that would 
begin procurement of new aircraft onto which the current 
equipment would be re-hosted. Because the Committee supports 
the Compass Call mission and acknowledges the fact that the 
current aircraft are expensive to operate and do not meet the 
revised operating requirements, in fiscal year 2017 the 
Committee recommends $103,000,000 and directs the Air Force to 
expedite procurement of new aircraft in compliance with 10 U.S. 
Code 2304.
    F-22 Modernization.--The Committee recognizes the increased 
operational use of the F-22 Raptor and notes that the Air Force 
is challenged to balance the operational demands and training 
needs for this platform. Currently, the Air Force retains 31 F-
22 Raptors at Tyndall Air Force for pilot training. The 
Committee believes that, if the need were to arise, these 
training aircraft could be used to supplement the combat fleet 
for operational missions. However, the Committee is concerned 
that the Air Force is not updating the training fleet with the 
same capability as the operational fleet. Therefore, the 
Committee directs the Secretary of the Air Force to provide to 
the congressional defense committees, not later than 120 days 
after enactment of this act, an analysis of the cost and 
schedule required to rapidly modernize the 31 remaining Block 
20 training F-22 Raptor aircraft based at Tyndall Air Force 
Base up to the full Increment 3.2B combat configuration.
    Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System [JSTARS].--
The Committee supports the JSTARS recapitalization program, an 
essential warfighting capability. The Committee expects the Air 
Force will take no action to prematurely retire E-8C aircraft 
until the new capability delivers. Accordingly, the Committee 
directs the Secretary of the Air Force to fund all necessary 
modifications of the E-8C fleet and maintain all E-8C aircraft 
in a common configuration to support world-wide missions, avoid 
the degradation of mission performance, and meet combatant 
commander requirements.
    National Guard Air Superiority Mission.--The Committee 
recognizes the benefit to the U.S. Northern Command combatant 
commander, responsible for homeland defense, to have access to 
lethal air superiority aircraft that are able to perform the 
air superiority mission for extended periods of time, with only 
limited air refueling assets. The Committee encourages the Air 
Force to review the benefits and costs of fully equipping Air 
National Guard F-15C/D aircraft with conformal fuel tanks and 
additional weapons stations to enhance homeland defense 
capability.

    Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle.--The fiscal year 2017 
budget requests $1,506,439,000 for the Evolved Expendable 
Launch Vehicle [EELV] program: $737,853,000 for launch services 
and $768,586,000 for launch capability. In the Department of 
Defense Appropriations Act, 2016 (Public Law 114-113), Congress 
expressed concern with the Air Force's 2016 budget request that 
accelerated GPS III launches ahead of the plan laid out in the 
2015 budget request. Congress noted concerns that delays in the 
Operational Control Segment [OCX] ground system that is needed 
to launch, checkout, and ultimately integrate and operate the 
GPS III satellites with the legacy GPS architecture will not be 
ready for many years after the Air Force plans to launch 
several of the GPS III satellites. Furthermore, the Department 
of Defense has been unable to provide Congress with a 
validation of the requirements for accelerating GPS III 
launches ahead of the 2015 schedule as required in the 2016 
Act.
    Despite these concerns and additional delays in the OCX 
system, the 2017 budget request outlines a plan to launch six 
satellites before 2019, the earliest the Air Force expects to 
have a Contingency Operations [COps] solution that would enable 
operation of the GPS III satellites in the constellation. The 
Director, Operational Test and Evaluation [DOT&E;] noted in a 
January 2016 memorandum to the Secretary of Defense, however, 
that the proposed COps schedule is ``grossly optimistic and 
unrealistic.'' Additionally, the Air Force plans to launch 
another three GPS III satellites before the end of 2021. The 
Committee sees no justification for launching so many 
satellites without a system in place to operate them.
    The Committee, therefore, recommends a reduction of 
$295,000,000 in the EELV program for two GPS III launch 
services in 2017 which are ahead of need. In addition, the 
Committee recommends a reduction of $200,000,000 for EELV 
launch capability for those launches and two launches in 2016 
that will not be awarded due to congressional termination of 
one launch in the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 
2016 (Public Law 114-113) and an Air Force movement of the 
other launch award to an earlier fiscal year. Finally, the 
Committee recommends a rescission of $157,000,000 for the 2016 
EELV launch service which the Air Force moved to an earlier 
award date, but for which funding remained in the fiscal year 
2016 budget.

    Additional Funding.--The Committee recognizes the critical 
role that the Defense Production Act [DPA] title III program 
serves in strengthening the U.S. defense industrial base and 
believes that this work is in the national interest. Therefore, 
the Committee increases funding for DPA by $20,000,000 over the 
budget request. The Committee directs that the additional 
funding be competitively awarded to new initiatives and 
priority consideration should be given to completion of DPA 
projects initiated in prior years. Furthermore, the Committee 
directs the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, 
Technology, and Logistics) to notify the congressional defense 
committees 30 days prior to any obligation or expenditure of 
these funds.

                                TITLE IV

               RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, TEST AND EVALUATION

            REPROGRAMMING GUIDANCE FOR ACQUISITION ACCOUNTS

    The Secretary of Defense is directed to continue to follow 
the reprogramming guidance as specified in the report 
accompanying the House version of the Department of Defense 
appropriations bill for fiscal year 2008 (House Report 110-
279). Specifically, the dollar threshold for reprogramming 
funds will remain at $20,000,000 for procurement and 
$10,000,000 for research, development, test and evaluation.
    Also, the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) is 
directed to continue to provide the congressional defense 
committees quarterly, spreadsheet-based DD Form 1416 reports 
for service and defense-wide accounts in titles III and IV of 
this act. Reports for titles III and IV shall comply with 
guidance specified in the explanatory statement accompanying 
the Department of Defense Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 
2006. The Department shall continue to follow the limitation 
that prior approval reprogrammings are set at either the 
specified dollar threshold or 20 percent of the procurement or 
research, development, test and evaluation line, whichever is 
less. These thresholds are cumulative from the base for 
reprogramming value as modified by any adjustments. Therefore, 
if the combined value of transfers into or out of a procurement 
(P-1), or a research, development, test and evaluation (R-1) 
line exceeds the identified threshold, the Secretary of Defense 
must submit a prior approval reprogramming to the congressional 
defense committees. In addition, guidelines on the application 
of prior approval reprogramming procedures for congressional 
special interest items are established elsewhere in this 
report.

          RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, TEST AND EVALUATION OVERVIEW

    Use of Research, Development, Test and Evaluation funds to 
procure end-items.--As in previous years, the Committee retains 
a general provision, section 8057, prohibiting the use of funds 
appropriated in title IV of this act to procure end-items for 
delivery to military forces for operational training, 
operational use or inventory requirements with the exception of 
end-items used in development, prototyping, and test activities 
preceding and leading to acceptance for operational use. The 
Committee notes a marked increase in the use of title IV funds 
under these exceptions and directs the Under Secretary of 
Defense (Acquisition, Technology, Logistics), in conjunction 
with the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Acquisition, 
Logistics and Technology), the Assistant Secretary of the Navy 
(Research, Development and Acquisition), the Deputy Commandant 
(Combat Development and Integration), the Assistant Secretary 
of the Air Force (Acquisition), and the Acquisition Executive, 
Special Operations Command, to provide no later than submission 
of the fiscal year 2018 President's budget request a report to 
the congressional defense committees detailing by fiscal year 
for each military service, all prototypes or other end-items 
funded with title IV funds planned for operational use. The 
report shall cover each of the previous three fiscal years and 
each fiscal year in the Fiscal Year 2018 Future Years Defense 
Program.
    Basic Research.--The fiscal year 2017 budget request 
includes $2,101,832,000 for basic research in Research, 
Development, Test and Evaluation for the Army, Navy, Air Force 
and Department of Defense. This amount is $207,364,000 below 
the amount appropriated in the Department of Defense 
Appropriations Act, 2016 (Public Law 114-113). The Committee 
believes that further investment in basic research must 
continue and is concerned with the minor increases being made 
in basic research. The Army, Air Force and the Department of 
Defense made only modest increases in basic research in fiscal 
year 2017 compared with the fiscal year 2016 request. Most 
alarming was the Navy's reduction in basic research funding 
which decreased by $43,958,000 in fiscal year 2017 compared 
with the fiscal year 2016 request.
    Basic research is the foundation of innovative 
breakthroughs that are critical to maintaining the Nation's 
future technological edge. Investments in basic research not 
only provide advances in technology for our military men and 
women but also provide an important incubator for national labs 
and academic research institutions. These investments also 
encourage partnerships and collaboration with industry. In 
order to keep pace with the global challenges to come, the 
Committee believes that additional funding should be allocated 
to Federal research. Therefore, the Committee recommends 
$2,264,832,000 for basic research, an increase of $163,000,000 
over the fiscal year 2017 budget request.
    Alternative Energy Research.--The Committee continues to 
support the fiscal and operational value of investing in 
alternative energy research. The Committee recommends an 
additional $55,000,000 for Army, Navy and Air Force research 
and development to continue research of promising alternative 
energy technologies, such as renewable energies, alternative 
fuels, and energy efficiencies. The Committee encourages the 
services to focus on the ability of platforms, installations, 
and personnel to operate with diverse mix of fuels.
    Department of Defense Laboratory Alternative Governance 
Assessment Pilot Program.--The Committee encourages the 
Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research, Development and 
Engineering to conduct a study evaluating alternative 
governance models for Department of Defense laboratories. This 
review should build upon previous work and may result in a 
pilot program that permits the laboratories selected to 
implement new management approaches and governance methods that 
improve autonomy, decision-making and technology transfer 
opportunities.

    Improved Turbine Engine Program [ITEP].--The fiscal year 
2017 budget request includes $126,105,000 for the Improved 
Turbine Engine Program [ITEP]. The Army's acquisition strategy 
for ITEP includes contracting with no less than two engine 
developers through Milestone B to ensure competition in the 
program. The Committee is fully supportive of this approach and 
has provided the necessary resources to fully fund this 
strategy; however, the Committee notes that the Preliminary 
Design Review contract has been delayed at least 6 months and 
is now scheduled to be awarded toward the end of fiscal year 
2016, which leaves excess funds in the program. Therefore, the 
Committee recommends a reduction of $30,000,000 to the fiscal 
year 2017 budget request to account for this schedule slip but 
expects the Army to maintain its dual vendor strategy in order 
to reduce risk, achieve appropriate technology maturity, and 
set the conditions for ultimate program success.
    Modular Handgun System.--The Committee understands that the 
Army is currently considering the acceleration of the Modular 
Handgun System [MHS] program. As the Army moves forward in 
testing and source selection, the Committee encourages the Army 
to evaluate an upgraded configuration of the current handgun in 
addition to other available off-the-shelf handguns as cost-
effective alternatives that may satisfy the requirements of the 
MHS program.
    Material Development, Characterization, and Computational 
Modeling.--The Committee recognizes the importance of 
evaluating materials and technologies as well as designing and 
developing methodologies and models to enable enhanced 
lethality and survivability. Methods such as computational 
research allow for the development of models that predict the 
mechanical properties of materials that are used in research 
and development at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory [ARL]. 
These models and simulations, which are based on quantum 
mechanics, statistical mechanics principles, and thermodynamic 
simulations, and are tested via cold spray synthesis and 
mechanical testing, provide a cost savings to the Department of 
Defense by simulating materials prior to testing them to ensure 
mechanical properties will work together. Additionally, these 
methodologies allow for the enhanced development of 
technologies such as lightweight armors, protective structures, 
kinetic energy active protection, ballistic shock and mine 
blast protection, helmet technologies to prevent traumatic 
brain injury, and numerous other uses. The Committee encourages 
ARL to continue the utilization of computational modeling and 
simulations research to achieve greater cost savings.
    Optimization of Ammunition Manufacturing.--The Committee 
understands that the Army is the single manager for 
conventional ammunition for the Department of Defense and is 
responsible for ensuring effective life cycle management of 
conventional ammunition products. This includes development and 
optimization of ammunition manufacturing processes as well as 
development and integration of new materials. The Committee 
believes that the manufacturing of conventional ammunition 
could be assisted by automating and optimizing propellant 
production processes and integrating new materials. These 
processes and materials may reduce cost, increase ammunition 
performance and enhance soldier safety; and the Committee 
encourages the Secretary of the Army to equip the national 
technical industrial base with new and emerging manufacturing 
processes and materials in order to achieve these goals.
    Strategic Materials Research.--The Committee continues to 
recognize the importance of the Army Research Laboratory [ARL] 
in expanding research, education and technology development 
efforts in materials and metals processing science and 
engineering, aiming to transform the affordability, 
performance, and environmental sustainability of strategic 
materials. The Committee further notes that ARL's Open Campus 
concept benefits the Army, the academic community, and industry 
through collaboration involving ARL's research staff and 
facilities, leading to continued technological superiority for 
the U.S. warfighter. The Committee encourages the Army to 
consider accelerating expansion of its Open Campus approach to 
its Materials and Manufacturing Science laboratories to benefit 
strategic materials research.
    Materials in Extreme Dynamic Environments Program.--The 
Committee recognizes the critical role of the Army's Materials 
in Extreme Dynamic Environments program in strengthening the 
domestic capability to develop and manufacture essential 
protection materials and encourages the Army to continue this 
work, which serves the national interest.
    Robotic Environmental Remediation of Army Ranges.--The 
Committee understands that the Army has launched a robotic-
centric environmental remediation program aimed at cleaning up 
decades of unexploded ordinance contamination at U.S. Army 
ranges with tele-operated heavy equipment. The Committee 
encourages the Army to increase the fleet of robotic applique 
kits that remotely control a variety of vehicles leveraging 
fully modernized vehicle control systems.
    Simulation Training.--The Committee acknowledges that 
simulation training is a cost-effective means by which military 
units can improve tactical decision-making skills and readiness 
in realistic scenarios otherwise found only in theater combat 
operations. The Committee encourages the Department to continue 
expansion of simulation training and seek the appropriate 
combination of government-owned and operated simulators as well 
as contractor support in order to maximize efficiency and 
effectiveness.
    Assessment of Degraded Visual Environment Technology.--The 
Committee encourages the Army to ensure that operational 
testing protocols for products under development to assist 
flight crews during situations of degraded visual environment 
are of the highest quality, based on the best scientific 
knowledge of the complex dynamics of dust brownout and 
standardized, to the maximum extent possible, to fairly 
evaluate and test all technologies under the extreme conditions 
required by the Army. This will ensure that all field testing 
is fair to all competing vendors, increase cost-effectiveness 
of field testing through the development of realistic and 
manageable test conditions and ensure that the technology 
deployed for warfighters has been adequately tested for 
operational conditions.
    Human Factors Engineering Technology.--The Committee 
supports the Department's continued efforts to support research 
into aspects of human factors engineering that impact the 
capabilities of soldiers. The Committee notes that the 
Department plans to fund Continuous Multi-Faceted Soldier 
Characterization for Adaptive Technologies starting in fiscal 
year 2017. As part of this effort, the Committee encourages the 
Department to prioritize development of a biosensor ecosystem 
capable of continuous monitoring of the solider, including the 
measure of hydration, stress, nutrition, body temperature, and 
other data needed to model soldier performance. This research 
should also look to enable longitudinal, long-term, real-world 
measurement of physiological and behavioral patterns.
    Tactical Communications and Protective System [TCAPS] 
Lite.--The Committee is aware that the Army has been updating 
standards for issuing the Tactical Communications and 
Protective System [TCAPS] Lite to soldiers. This update will 
ensure the majority of soldiers who do not carry mobile 
tactical radios will be issued TCAPS Lite which minimizes 
training and battlefield hearing loss, improves overall 
situational awareness and increases mission effectiveness, 
safety, and survivability. Therefore, the Department of the 
Army is encouraged to complete the update to the standards and 
ensure TCAPS Lite is promptly issued to soldiers.
    Long-Range Threat Detection.--The Committee recognizes 
long-range Deep Ultraviolet Raman Spectroscopy technology 
provides effective threat detection of explosives and that this 
technology has been extended to chemical warfare agents, 
nuclear weapon processing chemicals, narcotics, and hazardous 
materials. The Army Research Laboratory is commended for 
developing these multiple application, cost-effective sense 
systems and is encouraged to continue its research in this 
area.
    Army Test Ranges and Facilities.--The Committee supports 
funds used for delayed maintenance as identified as a high 
priority by the Army. Test and evaluation is critical to the 
success of warfighters' weapons and equipment, providing them 
an unprecedented technological advantage on the battlefield. At 
the core of this advantage is the ability of the Department of 
the Army to effectively test and retest its weapons systems and 
equipment which requires continuing basic maintenance of Army 
test ranges and facilities.
    Operational Test and Evaluation Support for Yuma Proving 
Ground.--The Committee encourages the Army to ensure that test 
facilities used for operational testing of equipment for use in 
extreme environments have adequate characterization of key 
environmental variables (e.g. soil, terrain and vegetation) to 
support development of the next generation of military 
equipment. Specific efforts should include extended 
capabilities for collection, processing, and creation of 
environmental information required to increase test efficiency.
    Manufacturing Technologies for Nanoscale to Microscale 
Materials for Armaments and Munitions.--The Committee 
understands that advances in manufacturing using nanoscale and 
microscale technologies have the potential to increase the 
performance of essential U.S. Army armament and munitions 
applications. Technological advancements in the materials, 
materials processing, and parts fabrication have the potential 
to reduce acquisition and total ownership costs for the 
Department of Defense. The Committee notes that Manufacturing 
Readiness Levels lag behind Technology Readiness Levels for 
advanced armament technologies and encourages the Army to 
continue its work in nanoscale and microscale munitions and 
armaments technologies.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Large Diameter Unmanned Undersea Vehicle [LDUUV].--The 
fiscal year 2017 President's budget request includes 
$70,100,000 for continued LDUUV technology research, and 
$67,607,000 for the development and design of two LDUUVs. The 
Committee notes that following an Analysis of Alternatives in 
2013, the Navy approved a Capabilities Development Document and 
achieved Milestone A for LDUUV in 2015. In addition, with 
submission of the fiscal year 2017 President's budget, the Navy 
changed its acquisition strategy from competing among multiple 
industry designs to retaining prototype fabrication of two 
LDUUVs in-house. The Committee further notes that while the 
Navy has not yet defined its autonomous undersea vehicle 
requirements, the Navy has projected an inventory of 12 LDUUVs 
by 2025.
    The Committee recommends full funding of $70,100,000 
requested in science and technology for LDUUV technologies, an 
increase of $7,900,000 over amounts enacted in fiscal year 
2016. In addition, the Committee recommends $24,600,000, as 
requested, for LDUUV experimentation, risk reduction and 
technology maturation, an increase of $18,000,000 over amounts 
enacted in fiscal year 2016. Due to concurrent science and 
technology, technology maturation, risk reduction and design 
efforts, as well as concerns with the revised acquisition 
strategy in light of future LDUUV requirements, the Committee 
does not recommend funding for prototype design of two LDUUVs, 
a reduction of $43,000,000 from the request.
    Extra Large Unmanned Undersea Vehicle [XLUUV].--The fiscal 
year 2017 President's budget request includes $78,589,000 in 
fiscal year 2017 for the development and deployment of five 
XLUUV prototypes and associated technologies. The Committee is 
aware of an operational need for an advanced maritime mining 
capability and of multiple material solutions under 
consideration. The Committee notes the Navy's apparent intent 
to sole source acquisition of five XLUUVs while concurrently 
leasing vehicles from industry to support the development of 
concept of operations and tactics, training and procedures by 
the Fleet. The Committee recommends $4,000,000 for the lease of 
multiple commercial vehicles for that purpose, as requested. 
The Committee recommends no funds for additional activities in 
this program element.
    Offensive Anti-Surface Warfare Weapon [OASuW].--The fiscal 
year 2017 President's budget request includes $250,371,000 for 
continued development of OASuW Increment I, and $2,038,000 to 
begin development of OASuW Increment II. The Committee notes 
that this program was initiated through an accelerated 
acquisition in February 2014 in response to a U.S. Pacific 
Fleet urgent operational need to provide an early operational 
capability on the B-1 in fiscal year 2018 and on the F/A-18E/F 
in fiscal year 2019. The Committee further notes that the Navy 
recently concluded an updated program cost estimate and that 
the Navy's fiscal year 2017 budget request places the OASuW 
Increment I early operational capability fielding schedule at 
risk by several months. Therefore, the Committee recommends an 
additional $50,600,000 for OASuW Increment I, the fiscal year 
2017 shortfall identified by the Navy, to maintain the OASuW 
Increment I schedule, and recommends no funds to initiate OASuW 
Increment II in order to minimize program risk.
    P-8A Poseidon.--The fiscal year 2017 President's budget 
request includes $182,220,000 for continued development of P-8A 
Poseidon Increment III. The Committee notes that recent 
estimates put the cost of P-8A Poseidon Increment III at over 
$1,000,000,000 and that after the fiscal year 2017 President's 
budget request was submitted, the Under Secretary of Defense 
(Acquisition, Technology and Logistics) approved, at the Navy's 
request, the incorporation of Increment III capabilities into 
the P-8A via engineering change proposals [ECPs), instead of 
developing these capabilities through a separate acquisition 
program.
    The Committee understands that under this revised 
acquisition strategy the Navy will field Increment III 
capabilities in a series of four ECPs, based on technical 
maturity. The Committee recommends $76,300,000 for the first 
two ECPs, as requested, but notes that the critical enabler for 
the remaining two ECPs, the combat systems architecture, is 
being developed concurrently with these ECPs. The Committee 
finds this concurrent development approach to be high risk, and 
recommends $36,000,000 for combat systems architecture 
development, as requested, but no funding the last two ECPs of 
Increment III, a reduction of $69,900,000 from the request.
    MQ-4C Triton.--The fiscal year 2017 President's budget 
request includes $111,729,000 for continued development of the 
MQ-4C Triton, an increase of $106,500,000 over amounts 
previously projected to be required in fiscal year 2017. In 
addition, the fiscal year 2017 President's budget request 
includes $181,266,000 for modernization of the MQ-4C Triton, an 
increase of $51,374,000 over amounts enacted in fiscal year 
2016, and $39,800,000 for development of a multi-intelligence 
sensor to be incorporated onto MQ-4C Triton during its 
modernization. The Committee notes the continued program delays 
for both the baseline and modernization programs, including an 
extension of baseline System Development and Demonstration 
efforts and delays to design reviews for the modernization 
program. In addition, the Committee notes the deferral of 
certain capabilities from the baseline to the modernization 
program. Finally, the Committee understands that the Navy is 
considering a potential restructure of the MQ-4C Triton 
program. Therefore, the Committee recommends full funding of 
the baseline capability, but no increase for MQ-4C Triton 
modernization, a reduction of $50,000,000 from the request to 
reduce program concurrency. In addition, the Committee notes 
that the multi-intelligence sensor development has not been 
adjusted to reflect delays to Triton modernization, and 
accordingly recommends an $8,200,000 reduction to the request.
    Synthetic Biology.--The Committee recognizes the potential 
for synthetic biology to enable the manufacture of 
pharmaceuticals, fuels, and industrial chemicals using 
environmentally low impact and cost effective processes. The 
Committee urges the Department of Defense, through the Office 
of Naval Research, to support basic research and engineering on 
the rapid development of cell-free biosynthesis of commercially 
important molecules, by combining high throughput screening 
methods, rapid protein production, and computational analysis.
    Materials Research.--The Committee urges the Office of 
Naval Research to support research and development that 
addresses materials homogeneity and integration related to 
electronic and photonic technologies. The results of 
fundamental electronic and photonic materials research can be 
more rapidly translated into military and commercial 
applications in portable electronics and displays, such as 
sensors, communications systems, power systems, and enemy 
monitoring technology.
    Navy Aircraft Fleet Readiness and Sustainment.--The 
Committee is aware of the Chief of Naval Operations' 2016 
``Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority,'' including its 
focus on strengthening the Navy team, building new partnerships 
and maintaining global superiority in a changing and 
challenging environment. The Committee notes that aircraft 
fleet readiness and sustainment is a critical component of this 
plan, but is concerned about the significant safety and 
readiness problems that plague the Navy and Marine Corps F/A-18 
fighter jet fleet. The F/A-18 remains operational, yet the 
Naval Air Systems Command appears to lack a comprehensive plan 
to address the problems that degrade the aircraft. The 
Committee recognizes the valuable role university research 
institutions can offer to the Navy to address these challenges 
and to rapidly respond to new technology requirements with 
qualified technologists and engineers, and encourages the Naval 
Air Systems Command to partner with university laboratories 
that possess leading-edge capabilities in aviation-related 
full-scale structures and materials testing and evaluation to 
address the structural problems related to the F/A-18 fighter 
jet. The Committee further encourages Naval Air Systems Command 
to explore establishing a University Affiliated Research Center 
partnership with an institution possessing demonstrated 
capabilities in enhanced structures and materials, testing and 
evaluation that would result in a cost-savings for the 
Department of Defense.
    Force Protection Applied Research.--The Committee continues 
to support Navy efforts in force protection applied research, 
and recommends an increase of $15,000,000 for that purpose. The 
Committee notes that development and deployment of lithium-ion 
batteries are critical to Department of Defense missions, but 
that safety incidents restrict their operational use. 
Therefore, the Committee believes that the development and 
qualification of technologies to reduce the risk of thermal 
runaway and improve safety in lithium-ion batteries should be a 
research priority. In addition, the Committee remains concerned 
over the potential impact of an electrical grid failure on 
national security and recommends investments in resilient and 
reliable power sources and infrastructure to promote energy 
security and mission effectiveness.
    Navy Alternative and Renewable Energy Research.--The 
Committee recommends an increase of $20,000,000 for Navy 
alternative energy research and of $15,000,000 for Navy 
renewable energy research. The Committee notes the fiscal and 
operational value of investing in alternative energy research, 
and encourages the Navy to: expand ocean renewable energy 
testing; research development and deployment of maritime 
security systems; support at-sea surveillance and 
communications systems; and explore opportunities to reduce the 
cost of energy and increase energy security at coastal 
Department of Defense facilities. Further, the Committee 
encourages the Navy to invest in renewable energy demonstration 
activities relating to Department of Defense facilities and 
activities in coordination with other Federal agencies and 
entities.
    Interdisciplinary Cybersecurity Research.--The Committee 
notes the significant investment by the Department of Defense 
in basic cyber research in recent years. However, the Committee 
is concerned that this research does not fully consider the 
interdisciplinary nature of cyber systems and excludes 
consideration of the role of human behavior. The Committee 
encourages the Navy to invest in multidisciplinary research in 
the areas of dynamic cyber defense, tactical cyberspace 
operations, signals intelligence, and user-in-the-loop testing 
and evaluation.
    Marine Corps Asset Life Cycle Management.--The Committee 
supports the Marine Corps' efforts to substantially reduce 
costs associated with routine maintenance through further 
research and development in the areas of remanufacturing and 
vehicle and behavior monitoring. The Committee encourages the 
Office of Naval Research to assign adequate resources to 
continue its efforts in this area.
    Undersea Weapons Energetics Capabilities.--The Committee 
recommends continued investment in the development of advanced 
energetics capabilities focused on undersea weapons, and the 
development of a database of global energetics materials 
activities as they apply to undersea warfare.
    Flexible Sea-Based Force Projection.--Future Naval 
Capabilities programs include support to sea-based technologies 
to support operations that normally rely on shore-based 
infrastructure. Flexible sea based force projection 
technologies mitigate the impact of operating at sea and enable 
cargo transfers, surface connector interfaces and amphibious 
vehicle launch and recovery from a variety of both legacy and 
emerging platforms in the sea-based environment. These 
technologies expand operational availability both within the 
seabase and from seabase to shore that is critical in an A2/AD 
environment. The Committee recommends continued investment in 
these areas.
    Naval Power and Energy Systems Technology Development 
Roadmap.--The Committee notes the recommendations in the 
recently updated Naval Power and Energy Systems Technology 
Development Roadmap for development of advanced power 
electronics, including silicon carbide power modules, which can 
reduce the size and weight of power conversion modules and 
other electronic systems needed to power advanced sensors and 
weapons systems. The Committee encourages continued investments 
in cost reduction initiatives and qualification of silicon 
carbide power modules in order to enable planned deployment of 
high-power, mission-critical systems on Navy platforms as early 
as fiscal year 2022.
    Condition-Based Maintenance.--The Committee is aware of the 
Navy's continued development and implementation of condition-
based maintenance solutions and notes that such efforts can 
provide demonstrable improvements in fleet readiness. The 
Committee encourages the Navy to adapt the lessons learned from 
Littoral Combat Ships combat systems condition-based 
maintenance efforts to other ship classes, to include weapons 
systems on DDG-51 Destroyers.
    Jet Noise Reduction Development.--The Committee understands 
the difficulties near-field and far-field aircraft engine noise 
poses for communities surrounding military installations as 
well as servicemembers who work in close proximity to military 
aircraft. Hearing loss, in particular, is a mounting concern 
for servicemembers and veterans who have spent their careers in 
and around military aviation. The Committee is aware that the 
Navy has long pursued noise reduction solutions for low bypass 
military jet engines and is encouraged by the noise reduction 
potential of variable exhaust nozzle seal chevron technology 
currently being pursued by the F/A-18 and EA-18G Program 
Office. The Committee recommends an additional $2,000,000 for 
jet noise reduction and urges the Navy to aggressively pursue 
research of this technology.
    Barking Sands Tactical Underwater Range [BARSTUR].--The 
Committee is concerned about the state of readiness and 
modernization of tactical test ranges that support undersea 
warfare missions, particularly given the state of evolving 
global threats in the undersea domain and the advanced age of 
some of the Navy's tactical underwater ranges. The Committee 
notes that the Barking Sands Tactical Underwater Range 
[BARSTUR] is beyond its service life, has degraded capability, 
and is beyond repair. The Committee further notes that the 
Commander, Submarine Forces, U.S. Pacific Fleet, has documented 
concerns that test capabilities in this mission area are not on 
a path to support future Navy requirements. Therefore, the 
Secretary of the Navy is directed to submit a complete program 
execution plan for BARSTUR replacement and modernization to the 
congressional defense committees, to include full program 
costs, not later than 60 days after the date of enactment of 
this act.
    U.S. Marine Corps Unmanned Rotary Aircraft.--The Committee 
notes the successful deployment to Afghanistan of unmanned 
rotary aircraft. The Committee encourages the Marine Corps to 
continue to leverage this capability to address capability gaps 
identified into the 2016 Marine Corps Aviation Plan.
    Electronic Maneuver Warfare [EMW].--The Committee notes the 
inclusion and expanded definition of electronic maneuver 
warfare [EMW] concepts in the Chief, Naval Operations' 2016 
Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority. The Committee 
further notes the game changing capabilities electronic 
maneuver warfare provides in denied environments, and its 
contributions to the Third Offset Strategy. The Committee 
believes that continued investments in EMW are warranted and 
notes that planning, programming and budgeting for EMW through 
the regular budget process provides the greatest level of 
insight and stability into the Navy's future requirements and 
plan.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Unmanned Aerial Systems [UAS].--The Committee recognizes 
that unmanned aerial systems [UAS] used by rogue individuals or 
organizations pose an increasing threat to military 
installations, weapons systems, and personnel, both in the 
United States and overseas. The rapid proliferation of UAS 
requires a comprehensive effort by Department of Defense to 
combat their use as a weapon. The Committee encourages the Air 
Force Research Laboratory to continue research and development 
of tactics using radar systems, advanced communications, and 
cyber security technologies to counter UAS threats.
    Long Range Strike Bomber.--The Committee notes that the Air 
Force recently announced the seven subcontractors that will 
produce various parts for the bomber program. The Committee 
also understands there is additional pressure on the Air Force 
to reveal further information, including roles of the 
subcontractors and the contract value for the prime contractor. 
The Committee recognizes that the value of additional program 
transparency must be balanced with the need for security 
protection. For example, additional details on the companies 
and subcontractors involved with the program could be of 
interest to foreign intelligence services for traditional or 
cyber espionage efforts. Therefore, the Committee directs the 
Inspector General of the Department of Defense to conduct a 
review of the security strategy, controls, and program 
protection plan and provide an assessment to the congressional 
defense committees on the findings not later than 60 days after 
enactment of this act. In addition, the Committee designates 
the long range strike bomber program as a congressional special 
interest item for purposes of transfer of funds and prior 
approval reprogramming procedures.
    Technology Transfer.--The Committee recognizes the 
importance of technology transfer between the Federal 
Government and non-Federal entities, such as academia, 
nonprofit organizations, and State and local governments. 
Technology transfer lowers the cost of new defense-related 
technology development and ensures that taxpayer investments in 
research and development benefit the economy and the industrial 
base. The Committee encourages the Department of Defense to 
continue placing an increased focus on technology transfer 
programs by allocating sufficient funding and leveraging the 
work being performed by Federal laboratories.
    Air Force Alternative Energy.--The Committee recommends an 
additional $20,000,000 for Air Force alternative energy 
research. The Committee remains encouraged by the Air Force's 
energy conservation and efficiency initiatives, as well as its 
investment into promising renewable energy, such as hydrogen 
fuel. The Committee urges the Secretary of the Air Force to 
continue critical research in this field, including investments 
in adaptive engine technologies, biogasification and waste-to-
energy, and other promising initiatives that can reduce the Air 
Force's reliance on conventional petroleum.
    Adaptive Engine Transition Program [AETP].--The Committee 
continues to support research and development in the next 
generation of turbine engine technology. The goal of AETP is to 
mature fuel efficient adaptive cycle engine technologies while 
reducing technical and manufacturing risks. The Committee fully 
funds the fiscal year 2017 request and encourages the Air Force 
to identify current and future programs for this technology 
insertion.
    Even though the Committee remains supportive of the 
program, the Committee notes that the budget justification for 
the program is incomplete and not transparent. While the AETP 
program is an early research and development and prototyping 
effort, the size and scope of planned investments, nearly 
$2,500,000,000 through fiscal year 2021, necessitate the same 
level of detail and transparency of an Acquisition Category 
[ACAT] 1D or Major Defense Acquisition Program [MDAP]. 
Therefore, the Committee directs the Air Force to provide more 
useful and complete R-2A, R-3, and R-4 budget justification 
documents in future budget requests, starting in fiscal year 
2018, for the AETP program.
    Ground Based Strategic Deterrent.--In fiscal year 2017, the 
Air Force will begin competitive risk reduction of flight 
systems technologies as well as maturation of the weapon system 
preliminary design with the intent to decrease integration 
risk. The Committee commends the Air Force in transitioning to 
a leaner acquisition strategy early in the program's design 
phase that focuses on risk reduction of the entire, integrated 
system. The Committee believes addressing the biggest risks 
early in the program, while still in competition, will result 
in overall cost savings and align the program for success. In 
support of this new strategy, the Committee fully funds the 
fiscal year 2017 request.
    Multi-Intelligence Data Fusion.--The Committee understands 
that the Air Force Common Data Link Executive Agent program 
provides the Department of Defense standard for interoperable, 
multi-service, multi-agency, Intelligence, Surveillance, and 
Reconnaissance [ISR] datalinks for more than 10,000 manned and 
unmanned airborne and ground collection platforms. The 
Committee encourages the Air Force to develop technologies and 
standards to integrate collected data across these multiple 
collection platforms to increase the efficiency and 
effectiveness of intelligence analysis and battlefield 
decisionmaking.
    Long Range Stand-Off Weapon.--The fiscal year 2017 budget 
request includes $95,604,000 for the Long Range Standoff 
Weapon. The Committee continues to support the Air Force's 
program to develop a follow-on capability to the Air Launched 
Cruise Missile and recommends fully funding the request. The 
Committee directs the Secretary of Defense to cooperate with 
the Secretary of Energy, in conjunction with the Nuclear 
Weapons Council, on a report to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both the House and Senate on the W80 warhead 
and the Long Range Standoff Weapon, as delineated in Senate 
Report 114-236.
    Advanced Pilot Training Program.--The fiscal year 2017 
budget request includes $12,377,000 to develop the Advanced 
Trainer Replacement to replace the T-38 aircraft and the 
associated ground-based training system. The average age of T-
38 aircraft is nearly 50 years and the fleet is reaching the 
end of its third service life. The Committee fully funds the 
fiscal year 2017 budget request and encourages the Air Force's 
Air Education and Training Command to accelerate Initial 
Operational Capability as the program moves forward. 
Separately, the Navy and the Air Force's Air Combat Command 
[ACC], who also operate T-38 aircraft, should leverage the 
Advanced Pilot Training Program. The Committee directs the 
Secretary of the Navy and the Commander of Air Combat Command 
to provide a business case analysis to congressional defense 
committees not later than 120 days after enactment of this act 
to begin considering alternatives for replacing their aging T-
38 trainers and adversary aircraft.
    F-15 Survivability.--The Committee supports the fiscal year 
2017 request for the F-15 Eagle Passive/Active Warning and 
Survivability System [EPAWSS] program. The F-15 EPAWSS program 
is critical to the survivability and lethality of the fleet to 
counter current and future electronic warfare threats. Given 
the strategic importance of the program for homeland defense 
and overseas contingencies, the Committee encourages the Air 
Force to review its plan and funding through fiscal year 2021 
to fully equip Air National Guard F-15 aircraft with EPAWSS.
    Joint Surveillance and Target Attack Radar System 
[JSTARS].--The fiscal year 2017 budget request includes 
$128,019,000 for the JSTARS recapitalization program, of which 
$102,800,000 supports a new radar risk reduction phase to 
mature two competing radars over an 18-month period through the 
end of fiscal year 2017. The Department of Defense [DOD] 
revised the JSTARS recapitalization program schedule, delaying 
the start of the Engineering and Manufacturing Development 
[EMD] phase to fiscal year 2018, extending the EMD phase from 
four to five and a half years, and delaying initial operational 
capability [IOC] to 2024 and full operational capability [FOC] 
to 2028.
    In the reports accompanying the Senate versions of the 
Department of Defense Appropriations Acts, 2015 and 2016 
(Senate Reports 113-211 and 114-63), the Committee voiced its 
support of the JSTARS recapitalization program and directed the 
Air Force to accelerate the acquisition schedule. The JSTARS 
recapitalization program is necessary to replace an aging, low 
density, and high demand E8-C fleet. From the outset, the 
recapitalization program was primarily intended to be an 
integration effort of mature technologies onto an existing 
platform to achieve the most cost-effective and low risk 
solution. Instead, the DOD has delayed EMD and requested 
additional funds for radar risk reduction. The Committee 
believes there is less risk related to available systems and 
mature technologies and that the greater programmatic risk 
associated with integration of the radar and battle management, 
command, and control system onto a new aircraft be addressed 
earlier in the program.
    The Committee notes that the fiscal year 2017 request for 
JSTARS recapitalization does not support a timely fielding 
acquisition strategy. Therefore, the Committee directs that 
$102,800,000 of the request for radar risk reduction only be 
used to fund the EMD contract award or support the EMD source 
selection process. The Committee directs the Secretary of the 
Air Force and the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, 
Technology, and Logistics to provide a briefing to the 
congressional defense committees not later than 90 days after 
enactment of this act on a compressed acquisition schedule and 
funding profile to achieve IOC and FOC as early as possible.
    F-16 Modernization.--The Committee understands that the 
advance of threats on U.S. aircraft have increased to a level 
where the F-16 struggles to maintain air superiority. The 
Committee further notes that without a funding plan to 
modernize the F-16 fleet, which will remain in the inventory 
for 15-20 additional years, the aircraft will be at a serious 
disadvantage when operating against both air-to-air and 
surface-to-air threats. Therefore, the Committee encourages the 
Air Force to ensure that the F-16 fleet is modernized 
appropriately to maintain air superiority against current and 
future threats.
    Simulation Training.--The Committee supports the Department 
of Defense's continued expansion of the full range of 
simulation training as a cost-effective means by which the 
military can improve tactical decision-making skills in 
realistic scenarios only found in theater combat operations. 
The Committee encourages the Department of Defense to continue 
developing and supporting efficient simulation training 
programs through a combination of both government-owned and 
operated simulators, as well as support from industry that can 
provide frequent hardware and software updates.
    Arctic Domain Awareness.--The Committee remains concerned 
with the pace of needed development in the arctic region and 
specifically with arctic domain awareness. The Committee 
understands that the Department is still drafting a report that 
was due to the congressional defense committees in June 2015 
outlining a plan to ensure arctic domain awareness coverage for 
the foreseeable future. The Committee directs the Secretary of 
Defense to submit the report as soon as possible, to include an 
assessment of the satellite communications capability in the 
region and potential to partner with Canada on the Canadian 
Weather Satellite mission.

                             SPACE PROGRAMS

    Weather Satellite Follow-On.--The Department of Defense 
Appropriations Act, 2016 (Public Law 114-113) recommended that 
the Secretary of the Air Force focus resources on ensuring that 
the next generation of weather satellites meet the full 
spectrum of warfighter and intelligence requirements, and work 
with civil stakeholders to ensure that any other weather 
coverage gaps are met using appropriate civil or international 
weather assets. While the Air Force is moving forward with 
plans to meet key weather requirements with its Compact Ocean 
Wind Vector Radiometer technology demonstration and ultimately 
the Weather Satellite Follow-On, electro-optical/infrared needs 
for cloud characterization and weather forecasting, 
particularly in the CENTCOM theater of operations, are not 
addressed in the 2017 budget request. International partners 
have assisted in filling some coverage gaps, but as previously 
noted by the Committee, these are not long-term solutions and 
do not solve all coverage gaps. The Committee directs the 
Secretary of the Air Force to examine the possibility of using 
commercial weather data to supplement existing assets and fill 
coverage gaps in cloud characterization and weather 
forecasting. Additionally, the Committee again recommends that 
the Secretary of the Air Force work with military, civil, 
commercial, and international stakeholders to ensure that all 
warfighter and intelligence weather requirements are met with a 
long-term solution.
    Operationally Responsive Space.--The Committee recommends 
that the Operationally Responsive Space program continue 
research, development, and educational programs in launching 
small satellites designed and built by university students. 
These efforts can both advance state-of-the-art technology and 
help build the technological workforce needed in our space 
industry.
    Global Positioning System III Operational Control 
Segment.--The budget request for fiscal year 2017 includes 
$393,268,000 for the GPS III Operational Control Segment [OCX]. 
This ground system promises to provide improved accuracy, 
security, and anti-jamming protection and allow integration of 
the new GPS III satellites with the legacy GPS IIF 
constellation. In the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 
2016 (Public Law 114-113), Congress raised concerns about 
development delays, so excessive that the OCX system will not 
be available for several years after the Air Force begins 
launching GPS III satellites. This has prompted the Air Force 
to contract for an interim solution to upgrade the current 
Operational Control System [OCS] ground system so that GPS III 
satellites can be integrated into the legacy architecture and 
operate as GPS IIFs. However, this interim solution will not 
enable all the capabilities of three generations of 
satellites--IIR-M, IIF, and IIIs--including Military code [M-
code] capability, a key warfighting need.
    As the Air Force embarks on this interim solution, the OCX 
program remains in jeopardy. After several pauses, 
reassessments, and a joint Office of the Secretary of Defense 
and Air Force deep dive effort to address the root causes of 
the program failures, the feasibility of meeting a new 2-year 
schedule remains in question. Moreover, the program cost is now 
expected to be $2,300,000,000, a 160-percent increase over the 
original estimate of $886,000,000.
    The Government Accountability Office [GAO] reported that as 
of March 2016, after the deep dive, the program was continuing 
to experience significant technical challenges, part of a long 
historical pattern that has contributed to multiple delays and 
cost overruns. The GAO also questioned the 2-year additional 
schedule delay, nothing that the contractor and Air Force 
believed that a more than 4-year additional delay was likely 
necessary.
    The Committee is concerned that the program cannot correct 
course and meet the new schedule. Further delays and problems 
in the OCX program will only delay the operation of GPS III 
replenishment satellites and risk national security. The 
Committee believes the Air Force should work with the 
contractor to ensure that OCX Block 0, which will enable launch 
and checkout of GPS III satellites, is completed, and turn its 
focus toward ensuring that the interim OCS solution succeeds, 
on schedule and on budget.
    The Committee, therefore, reduces funding for the OCX 
program by $259,830,000, terminating Blocks 1 and 2. The 
Committee recommends funding for completion of Block 0 and adds 
$30,000,000 for enhancements to the OCS ground system that will 
enable M-code broadcast capabilities and ensure that our 
warfighters have this necessary capability in the most timely 
manner possible.
    Space Fence.--The Committee commends the Air Force for its 
execution of the Space Fence program and for recognition of the 
program by the Government Accountability Office as one of the 
few space programs currently on schedule and on budget. The 
program plans to complete installation, checkout, and test of 
the first radar site in fiscal year 2017 and deliver an initial 
operating capability in 2018 to dramatically improve 
identification and tracking of space objects. However, the Air 
Force has not yet moved forward on the second radar site, which 
will be essential for full operational capability. Therefore, 
the Committee directs the Secretary of the Air Force to conduct 
an analysis and report to the congressional defense committees, 
not later than 180 days after enactment of this act, on the 
requirements, site options, and necessary timelines for 
construction and integration of Space Fence site 2 into the 
Space Surveillance Network to maximize the cost effectiveness 
of site 2 procurement and support the necessary improvements 
for geostationary orbit coverage.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Quantum Computing.--The Committee is aware of the National 
Institute of Standards and Technology [NIST] report on quantum 
computing technology. Additionally, the Committee is conscious 
of the work done by the Defense Advanced Research Projects 
Agency [DARPA] in the Quantum Information Science and 
Technology [QuIST] program to establish the first quantum key 
distribution network. The Committee believes more research and 
development by our defense national research organizations is 
warranted. The Committee encourages the Director of DARPA and 
the Secretary of Defense to work with the research labs to 
implement a university-based cybersecurity laboratory and 
photonics foundry with close involvement with industry 
partners, State government and the Federal Government to 
continue development of quantum computing capability.
    High Energy Laser.--The Committee is concerned with the 
funding levels for the primary test and evaluation facility for 
high energy laser [HEL] systems across the Department of 
Defense. With directed energy interest and work increasing in 
the third offset strategy, the Committee recommends the 
Department review the funding levels, identify, and correct 
shortfalls as necessary.
    Defense Innovation Unit-Experimental office [DIUX].--The 
Committee recommends $28,000,000 for the Defense Technology 
Innovation program to strengthen and build relationships with 
Silicon Valley technology firms with expertise in technology 
innovation. The Committee understands this is a high priority 
program for the Secretary of Defense. In order to insure 
visibility and transparency of the execution of these funds, 
the Committee requests quarterly updates on the Defense 
Innovation Unit-Experimental office and their efforts in 
leveraging innovation for the Department of Defense.
    Manufacturing Technology Program.--The Committee 
understands that metal castings play a significant role in 
ensuring Warfighter preparedness and that investment is needed 
in castings technology to maintain technological superiority in 
this advanced manufacturing industry. Therefore, the Committee 
recommends an additional $10,000,000 to support this program.
    Cloud-based Information Technology Solutions.--The 
Committee is encouraged by the Department Chief Information 
Officer's decision to pursue commercial, cloud-based solutions 
and systems. However, the Department of Defense Inspector 
General report (Report No. DODIG-2016-038) identified several 
concerns. The Committee directs the Department Chief 
Information Officer to complete a report and submit it to the 
congressional defense committees 120 days after enactment of 
this act. This report shall include current plans for the 
expansion of commercial cloud computing to leverage paying for 
only the services consumed, plans for developing security 
guidelines that encourage partnerships with commercial cloud 
providers, any factors delaying or inhibiting the expansion of 
commercial cloud computing usage, and the cost savings achieved 
in fiscal year 2016 by the utilization of commercial cloud 
computing services.
    Conventional Prompt Global Strike.--The Committee supports 
the Department of Defense program to develop and demonstrate 
technologies that advance the conventional prompt global strike 
capability. The Committee is aware of ongoing test review 
efforts and understands that the Department of Defense plans to 
complete additional testing in the near term. The Committee 
further notes that Congress has appropriated $1,073,276,000 
through fiscal year 2016 and the Committee recommends 
$101,303,000 in fiscal year 2017, a $12,643,000 increase above 
fiscal year 2016 enacted amounts. The Committee encourages the 
Department of Defense to maintain the currently programmed 
funding profile of $881,620,000 from fiscal years 2018 through 
2020, given the strategic importance of the program, and urges 
the Department of Defense to finalize manufacturing and testing 
of the hypersonic glide body and booster.
    Trusted Microelectronics Development and Support.--The 
Committee is concerned with maintaining supply chain assurance 
against counterfeit parts and ensuring ready access to trusted 
microelectronics. In April 2016, the Department of Defense and 
Global Foundries agreed to a 3-year procurement strategy for 
trusted parts; the Committee does not have confidence in the 
long-term roadmap to establish a future trusted 
microelectronics solution. While the fiscal year 2017 budget 
request includes $47,800,000 to establish a new trust approach 
in this arena, the Committee is concerned with this 
insufficient level of funding and the time needed to validate 
potential solutions. Therefore, the Committee directs the 
Secretary of Defense to provide a quarterly updates on efforts 
to maintain a trusted microelectronics capability within the 
United States.
    Unmanned Aircraft System [UAS] Common Development.--The 
Committee notes the designation by the Federal Aviation 
Administration [FAA] of the UAS national test sites and 
selection of the FAA UAS Center of Excellence to expand the use 
of UAS in the National Airspace System [NAS]. The Committee 
recognizes that research activities will lead to policies and 
standards governing future domestic UAS operations, including 
Department of Defense operations. The Committee recommends an 
additional $4,000,000 for Unmanned Aircraft System Common 
Development and urges the Secretary of Defense to coordinate 
with the Administrator of Federal Aviation Administration in 
the development and demonstration of common UAS standards, 
architectures and technologies to ensure a consistent, 
nationwide approach to airspace integration across both civil 
and public sectors.
    Department of Defense Small Business Innovation Research 
[SBIR].--The Committee recognizes the importance of the Small 
Business Innovation Research [SBIR] program and its success in 
commercialization from federally funded research and 
development projects. The SBIR program creates opportunities 
for domestic small businesses to engage in Federal research and 
development in an effort to create new jobs and markets for 
advanced technologies. The Committee encourages the Department 
of Defense to continue placing an increased focus on firms new 
to the SBIR program and those companies that employ fewer than 
50 people. The Committee also believes that SBIR should provide 
resources to assist these firms, especially in the area of 
government contracting and business accounting. The Committee 
believes the Department of the Navy's SBIR program is a 
successful model, especially the Navy Program Executive Office 
Submarine, which could be used as a benchmark for SBIRs 
programs across the Department of Defense enterprise.
    Office of Personnel Management [OPM] Breach.--The Committee 
supports the Department of Defense's request of $75,000,000 for 
the Federal Investigative Services Information Technology 
program to develop a new database to respond to the theft of 
Federal workers personal data as a result of the security 
breach at OPM. The Committee encourages the Secretary of 
Defense to invest in a new Background Investigation Information 
Technology System to ensure that the privacy and personal data 
of Federal employees is protected from current and future 
vulnerabilities. The Committee directs the Secretary of Defense 
to provide quarterly updates on the future technology 
development program and its follow on acquisition effort.
    Sustained-Release Drug Delivery.--The Committee is aware of 
ongoing efforts to develop technologies to enable ultra-long 
acting pharmacokinetics to respond to threats and improve 
individual readiness and total force health protection. The 
Committee encourages the Defense Advanced Research Projects 
Agency [DARPA] to prioritize research into delivery systems to 
increase access to treatment though the development of long-
acting oral therapies to improve healthcare access, delivery, 
and outcomes. A system that could administer therapies once 
monthly to once every 6 months would greatly improve patient 
adherence and optimize the pharmacokinetics of therapies 
currently provided once or more per day. Oral long-acting 
therapies are particularly advantageous in resource-constrained 
environments and likely to include significant operational, 
logistics, and cost benefits.
    Cybersecurity Research Automated Cyber Exploitation and 
Defense.--The Committee is concerned that current approaches to 
identify cybersecurity vulnerabilities in software and systems 
are largely manual, slow and costly, and leave our military and 
intelligence systems at risk. The Committee recognizes the 
value of automated exploit generation and vulnerability 
identification technologies for rapidly identifying security-
critical vulnerabilities in off-the-shelf systems, such as 
those exemplified in the Cyber Grand Challenge. Therefore, the 
Committee directs funding within the Cyber Security Research 
program to support research in automated exploit generation, 
exploit hardening, and vulnerability identification 
capabilities of systems when source code is not available, and 
to focus on implementation, integration, and software tooling.
    Secure Networks of Systems.--The Committee recognizes that 
the Department's aircraft, ships, submarines, vehicles, and 
energy systems are computer-networked systems of systems that 
are increasingly autonomous in these complex systems. Every 
piece of software, hardware, and network is a potential 
cybersecurity attack point. The Committee notes that attackers 
will target all components to achieve their objective, and that 
effective defenses require interdisciplinary expertise in 
cybersecurity offense and defense in hardware, software, 
networks, and autonomous systems covering both traditional 
computing devices and cyber-physical systems that interact with 
the physical world. Therefore, the Committee directs the 
Secretary of Defense to use funds previously appropriated in 
the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2016 (Public Law 
114-113) within the Defense Technology Analysis program to 
support institutions with strong cybersecurity, cyber-physical, 
and networks of systems research programs that will develop 
methods to identify vulnerabilities in large networked systems, 
rapidly prototype and build security prototypes and tools, and 
with institutional capabilities to transfer basic research into 
Department of Defense mission areas and platforms.
    Cyber Data Protection.--As a result of the recent OPM 
breach, the Committee is concerned with threats accessing 
classified data and personally identifiable information [PII]. 
The Committee is concerned that traditional network defense 
actions are insufficient to protect data assets from 
unauthorized or malicious access, manipulation, destruction, 
and exfiltration. Therefore, the Committee directs the 
Secretary of Defense to undertake a comprehensive review of 
classified systems and systems that have PII information, and 
validate that protection measures are in place to insure data 
integrity and appropriate access. The review should include an 
examination of measures to defeat deletion and exfiltration. 
Not more than 30 days after completing the review, the 
Secretary of Defense shall report to the congressional defense 
committees on the findings.
    Third Offset and Federally Funded Research and Development 
Centers.--The Committee recognizes that many government 
Federally Funded Research and Development Centers [FFRDCs] are 
developing cutting-edge technology that could be used for 
defense purposes in support of the Secretary of Defense's Third 
Offset Strategy. The research and development investments being 
conducted by many FFRDCs, including the national security labs, 
are often classified or include contract work with small 
businesses that are accustomed to working with the Department 
of Defense and other government agencies. As the Department of 
Defense works to support the acceleration of the fielding or 
commercialization of offset technologies to counter the 
technological advantage of potential adversaries, the Committee 
urges the Department of Defense to include FFRDCs in its offset 
strategy and to commit to increased partnerships with FFRDCs 
and the small businesses which support them.
    Robotic Servicing of Geostationary Satellites.--The 
Committee supports the Defense Advanced Research Project 
Agency's [DARPA] efforts to work with industry to develop and 
demonstrate robotic satellite servicing technologies in 
geostationary orbit. DARPA's work is complementary to the 
National Aeronautics and Space Administration [NASA] Restore-L 
mission to demonstrate robotic satellite servicing in low Earth 
orbit [LEO]. NASA's Restore-L and DARPA's planned Robotic 
Servicing of Geostationary Satellites [RSGS] will both 
demonstrate key technologies and enable a commercially provided 
sustained servicing capability to inspect, repair, relocate and 
add payloads to satellites. The Committee is hopeful that 
NASA's Restore-L, RSGS and the subsequent commercial partners 
will foster a more capable and resilient space architecture for 
the U.S. Government and U.S. commercial satellite industry.

                         MISSILE DEFENSE AGENCY

    Integrated Master Test Plan.--The fiscal year 2017 
President's budget request includes $1,232,784,000 for Missile 
Defense Agency [MDA] test events, an increase of $82,526,000 
over amounts enacted in fiscal year 2016. The Committee 
recognizes the importance of a fully integrated test program to 
MDA's mission and continues to support a robust test program to 
credibly demonstrate and validate the ballistic missile defense 
system performance. Therefore, the Committee is concerned by 
MDA's proposal to defer the operational test for the Ground-
based Midcourse Defense System until fiscal year 2018, and 
recommends an additional $24,400,000 to accelerate that flight 
test, FTG-11, into fiscal year 2017, as previously planned.
    Further, the Committee is concerned by the continued 
volatility in MDA's test schedule, and the discrepancies 
between planned and actually executed test events. The 
Committee understands that numerous factors can impact the 
execution of test events in any given year, but strongly 
believes that a stronger synchronization between allocation of 
budgetary resources and management of the test plan would lead 
to greater stability, demonstrated performance and cost 
savings. The Committee notes that 3 months after submission of 
the fiscal year 2017 President's budget, the final Integrated 
Master Test Plan had not been approved. The Committee directs 
that not more than 75 percent for funds requested for testing 
in fiscal year 2017 may be obligated or expended until the 
Director, Missile Defense Agency, in conjunction with the 
Director, Operational Test and Evaluation, submits a plan to 
the congressional defense committees delineating steps to 
ensure greater synchronization between the budget and the 
Integrated Master Test Plan.
    Redesigned Kill Vehicle [RKV].--The fiscal year 2017 
President's budget request includes $181,900,000 for continued 
development of the Redesigned Kill Vehicle. The Committee 
recommends full funding of this request and notes its previous 
strong support for this program. The Committee notes that with 
submission of the fiscal year 2017 President's budget, the 
Missile Defense Agency [MDA] changed its acquisition strategy 
for the RKV from a deliberately sequenced acquisition using 
research and development and procurement funding to a schedule-
driven acquisition using only research and development funding 
and incremental funding authorities. Based on past experience, 
the Committee has significant concerns with this approach as it 
eschews best acquisition practices and relinquishes 
transparency, auditability, accountability, and affordability 
for the sake of expedience.
    In addition, the Committee notes MDA's stated intent to 
compete follow-on production of the RKV, but questions MDA's 
ability to do so given the significant number of RKVs MDA plans 
to award with existing contract vehicles, to include seven 
Inert Operating Kill Vehicles, three test articles, and eight 
initial production RKVs. The Committee notes that the purpose 
of initial production is to establish an initial production 
base for a system and to provide an efficient ramp to full rate 
production, and is concerned that the RKV acquisition strategy 
jeopardizes this by delaying the transition to full rate 
production through competition.
    The Committee supports the development of seven Inert 
Operating Kill Vehicles, three test articles and no more than 
four initial production RKVs, consistent with previously 
established thresholds for initial production. The Committee 
does not support the use of research and development funds for 
additional RKV production rounds. To support transition to 
competition for the RKV, the Committee recommends $50,000,000 
in Procurement, Defense-wide above the budget request only for 
RKV advanced procurement and expects MDA to program procurement 
funds for RKV production accordingly.
    Directed Energy.--The fiscal year 2017 President's budget 
request includes $23,744,000 for the competitive development of 
two prototype airborne laser demonstrator platforms with a 
flight demonstration planned by fiscal year 2020. The Committee 
notes the potential ability of directed energy concepts to 
augment the kinetic capability of the ballistic missile defense 
system and recommends full funding for this effort. However, 
the Committee is aware of the size, weight and power challenges 
of integrating a laser onto an airborne platform, as well as of 
questions surrounding the concept of operations of such a 
platform. Therefore, the Committee directs that funds be 
limited to this demonstrator effort only, and that no funds may 
be obligated or expended for follow-on development efforts or 
programs.
    SM-3 Block IIA Interceptor.--The fiscal year 2017 
President's budget request includes $254,700,000 for the 
continued manufacturing of seventeen SM-3 Block IIA 
interceptors as well as $213,300,000 for continued SM-3 Block 
IIA development and $106,038,000 for SM-3 Block IIA co-
development with the Government of Japan. The Committee notes 
that since the previous budget request, programmed costs for 
manufacturing of the initial SM-3 Block IIA interceptors have 
increased 40 percent and costs for SM-3 Block IIA development 
have increased 29 percent. Further, delivery of SM-3 Block IIA 
interceptors has been delayed by over three fiscal quarters, 
resulting in at least one missed flight test.
    As previously stated in Senate Report 114-63 and in Senate 
Report 113-211, the Committee has grave reservations with MDA's 
acquisition approach for SM-3 Block IIA interceptors and its 
inability to control costs for this program, which are in 
direct contradiction to MDA's stated goals of ``getting ahead 
of the cost curve,'' as the Director, MDA testified before the 
Committee. The Committee recognizes the importance of the SM-3 
Block IIA to the European Phased Adaptive Approach and 
continues to support the program; however, the Committee 
believes that greater acquisition rigor is required to contain 
program costs and manage the industrial base, which produces 
the SM-3 Block IIA interceptor concurrently with the SM-3 Block 
IB interceptor. Therefore, the Committee directs the Director, 
Missile Defense Agency, in coordination with the Assistant 
Secretary of the Navy (Research, Development and Acquisition), 
to provide with the fiscal year 2018 President's budget request 
an acquisition objective for the SM-3 Block IB and Block IIA 
programs, as well as a report on steps taken by MDA and the 
Department of the Navy to control costs while improving program 
performance.
    Availability of Solid Rocket Motors for Testing.--The 
Committee notes the Missile Defense Agency's reliance on solid 
rocket motors [SRM] for target vehicles used in tests and is 
concerned with potential cost increases for these motors. 
Therefore, the Committee directs the Assistant Secretary of the 
Air Force (Acquisition) in conjunction with the Director, 
Missile Defense Agency [MDA], to provide a report to the 
congressional defense committees, not later than 90 days after 
enactment of this act, detailing costs of refurbished strategic 
solid rocket motors for MDA target vehicles and evaluating 
options to control costs. The report should include an 
evaluation of the potential development of a modern first stage 
solid rocket motor for use in these targets and disclose 
whether such a development could lower the cost of future 
target vehicles, strengthen the strategic SRM industrial base 
and reduce risk in the Ground-Based Strategic Deterrent 
program.

    Meals Ready-to-Eat.--The Committee recommends full funding 
for the Defense Logistics Agency's request of 2.5 million cases 
of Meals Ready to Eat and reaffirms its support for the War 
Reserve stock objective of 5.0 million cases and the minimum 
sustainment rate for the industrial base.
    Commissary Funding.--The Committee recognizes the 
significant and lasting benefits that commissaries provide in 
support of servicemembers and their families. Commissaries help 
promote healthy base communities by guaranteeing access to 
fresh foods, including fruits and vegetables, at low prices to 
military families. Better nutrition and food choices are the 
first steps toward improved health outcomes and lower 
healthcare costs. Commissaries also help military families 
stretch their budgets and provide stable employment for 
servicemembers' families and veterans.
    It is understood that the Department of Defense would like 
to make commissaries more self-sustaining. The Committee 
supports finding efficiencies to lower the operational cost of 
commissaries, and is willing to review and consider new ways to 
administer the commissaries. However, any reduction should not 
impact hours of service, the number of stores, or savings to 
customers. The Committee strongly believes that commissaries 
must be kept open, affordable, and accessible to military 
families.

Committee recommendation................................................

    The Committee recommends no appropriation for the National 
Defense Sealift Fund. This is equal to the budget estimate 
since the Secretary of the Navy realigned funding from this 
account into Operation and Maintenance, Navy, and Research, 
Development, Test and Evaluation, Navy in the request.

    Defense Health Program Reprogramming Procedures.--The 
Committee remains concerned regarding the transfer of funds 
from the In-House Care budget sub-activity to pay for 
contractor-provided medical care. To limit such transfers and 
improve oversight within the Defense Health Program operation 
and maintenance account, the Committee includes a provision 
which caps the funds available for Private Sector Care under 
the TRICARE program subject to prior approval reprogramming 
procedures. The provision and accompanying report language 
should not be interpreted by the Department as limiting the 
amount of funds that may be transferred to the Direct Care 
System from other budget activities within the Defense Health 
Program. In addition, the Committee continues to designate the 
funding for the In-House Care budget sub-activity as a special 
interest item. Any transfer of funds from the In-House Care 
budget sub-activity into the Private Sector Care budget sub-
activity or any other budget sub-activity will require the 
Secretary of Defense to follow prior approval reprogramming 
procedures for operation and maintenance funds.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of Defense to provide 
written notification to the congressional defense committees of 
cumulative transfers in excess of $10,000,000 out of the 
Private Sector Care budget sub-activity not later than fifteen 
days after such a transfer. The Committee further directs the 
Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs) to provide 
quarterly reports to the congressional defense committees on 
budget execution data for all of the Defense Health Program 
budget activities and to adequately reflect changes to the 
budget activities requested by the services in future budget 
submissions.
    Carryover.--For fiscal year 2017, the Committee recommends 
1 percent carryover authority for the operation and maintenance 
account of the Defense Health Program. The Committee directs 
the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs) to submit a 
detailed spending plan for any fiscal year 2016 designated 
carryover funds to the congressional defense committees not 
less than 30 days prior to executing the carryover funds.
    Electronic Health Record.--The Committee remains concerned 
about the progress being made by the Departments of Defense and 
Veterans Affairs to develop fully interoperable electronic 
health records. The ultimate goal of the efforts of both 
Departments is to have systems that can exchange data in a 
meaningful way and be used in a dynamic environment to improve 
patient care and facilitate smoother transitions for 
servicemembers from military service to veteran status.
    The Committee appreciates the Department's improvements in 
providing information on prior year budgets and expenditures on 
its electronic health record as well as an equivalent level of 
detail for the fiscal year 2017 budget request. The Committee 
directs the Program Executive Officer [PEO] for the Defense 
Healthcare Management Systems Modernization [DHMSM] program to 
provide quarterly reports to the congressional defense 
committees and the Government Accountability Office on the cost 
and schedule of the program, to include milestones, knowledge 
points, and acquisition timelines, as well as quarterly 
obligation reports. These reports should also include the 
following: (1) any changes to the deployment timeline, 
including benchmarks, for full operating capability; (2) any 
refinements to the cost estimate for full operating capability 
and the total life cycle cost of the project; (3) an assurance 
that the acquisition strategy will comply with the acquisition 
rules, requirements, guidelines, and systems acquisition 
management practices of the Federal Government; (4) the status 
of the effort to achieve interoperability between the 
electronic health record systems of the Department of Defense 
and the Department of Veterans Affairs, including the scope, 
cost, schedule, mapping to health data standards, and 
performance benchmarks of the interoperable record; and (6) the 
progress toward developing, implementing, and fielding the 
interoperable electronic health record throughout the two 
Departments' medical facilities. The Committee further directs 
the PEO DHMSM to continue briefing the House and Senate Defense 
Appropriations Subcommittees on a quarterly basis, coinciding 
with the report submission. Given that full deployment of the 
new electronic health record is not scheduled until fiscal year 
2022, the Committee expects the Department to continue working 
on interim modifications and enhancements to the current system 
to improve interoperability in the short-term.
    The Committee also directs the Department of Defense to 
provide written notification to the Committees on 
Appropriations of the House and Senate prior to obligating any 
contract or combination of contracts in excess of $5,000,000.
    Finally, the Committee directs the Interagency Program 
Office to continue to provide quarterly briefings to the House 
and Senate Subcommittees on Appropriations for Defense and 
Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies 
regarding standards development, how those standards are being 
incorporated by both DOD and VA and the progress of 
interoperability between the two Departments. In an effort to 
ensure government-wide accountability, the Committee also 
directs the DOD in coordination with the VA to provide the 
Federal Chief Information Officer of the United States with 
monthly updates on progress made by the two Departments to 
reach interoperability and modernize their respective 
electronic health records.
    Traumatic Brain Injury [TBI]/Psychological Health.--The 
Committee recommends $60,000,000 above the fiscal year 2017 
budget request for continued research into treatment, 
prevention, and detection of traumatic brain injuries and 
improved psychological health. The Committee directs the 
Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs) to submit a 
report to the congressional defense committees within 180 days 
of enactment of this act on expenditure and obligation data of 
additional funding added by Congress for psychological health 
and traumatic brain injury. This report should include 
information on agreements made with other government agencies.
    Additionally, the Committee is aware of recent medical 
advances in drug development for neurodegenerative diseases and 
encourages the Department to further its research into 
developing drugs that reverse, halt, or slow the 
neurodegenerative process associated with traumatic brain 
injury. The Committee is also aware of advances in diagnostic 
and mapping tools developed to better understand the cellular 
extent of TBI. These advances could lead to more effective 
protective gear that minimizes or eliminates the damage 
associated with TBI, and the Committee encourages the 
Department to continue its research in these areas.
    Peer-Reviewed Medical Research Program.--The Committee 
recommends $300,000,000 for the Peer-Reviewed Medical Research 
Program. The Committee directs the Secretary of Defense, in 
conjunction with the Service Surgeons General, to select 
medical research projects of clear scientific merit and direct

that the additional funding provided under the Peer-Reviewed 
Medical Research Program shall be devoted only to the purposes 
listed above.
    Joint Warfighter Medical Research Program.--The Committee 
recommends $50,000,000 for the Joint Warfighter Medical 
Research Program. Funds shall be used to augment and accelerate 
high priority Department of Defense and service medical 
requirements and to continue prior year initiatives that are 
close to achieving their objectives and yielding a benefit to 
military medicine. These funds shall not be used for new 
projects or basic research, and they shall be awarded at the 
discretion of the Secretary of Defense following a review of 
medical research and development gaps, as well as unfinanced 
medical requirements of the services. Further, the Committee 
directs the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs) to 
provide a report not later than 180 days after the enactment of 
this act to the congressional defense committees, which lists 
the projects that receive funding. The report should include 
the funding amount awarded to each project, a thorough 
description of each project's research, and the benefit the 
research, will provide to the Department of Defense.
    Peer-Reviewed Cancer Research Programs.--The Committee 
recommends $120,000,000 for the peer-reviewed breast cancer 
research program, $64,000,000 for the peer-reviewed prostate 
cancer research program, $10,000,000 for the peer-reviewed 
ovarian cancer research program, and $60,000,000 for the peer-
reviewed cancer research program that would research cancers 
not addressed in the aforementioned programs currently executed 
by the Department of Defense.
    The funds provided in the peer-reviewed cancer research 
program are directed to be used to conduct research in the 
following areas: brain cancer, colorectal cancer, 
immunotherapy, kidney cancer, listeria-based regimens for 
cancer, liver cancer, melanoma, mesothelioma, neuroblastoma, 
pancreatic cancer, pediatric brain tumors, and stomach cancer.
    The funds provided under the peer-reviewed cancer research 
program shall be used only for the purposes listed above. The 
Committee directs the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health 
Affairs) to provide a report not later than 180 days after the 
enactment of this act to the congressional defense committees 
on the status of the peer-reviewed cancer research program. For 
each research area, the report should include the funding 
amount awarded, the progress of the research, and the relevance 
of the research to servicemembers.
    The Committee commends the Department for ensuring that 
projects funded through the various peer-reviewed cancer 
research programs maintain a focus on issues of significance to 
military populations and the warfighter. This includes 
promoting collaborative research proposals between Department 
of Defense researchers and non-military research institutions. 
These collaborations leverage the knowledge, infrastructure, 
and access to clinical populations that the partners bring to 
the research effort. Additionally, promoting these 
collaborations provides a valuable recruitment and retention 
incentive for military medical and research personnel. The 
Committee encourages the Department to emphasize the importance 
of these collaborations between military and non-military 
researchers throughout the peer-review process.
    Collaboration on Cancer Research.--The Committee recognizes 
that the close cooperation between the John P. Murtha Cancer 
Center at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and the 
Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs) has enabled 
partnerships which allow access to cancer tissue repositories 
and shareable data to improve the treatment and outcomes of 
patients in the military health system. These partnerships will 
further advance research through the enhanced use of patient 
data derived from large patient studies that include long-term 
health records, specimen repositories and collaborations 
involving major academic cancer centers. The Committee strongly 
encourages increased support to allow for rapid enrollment of 
patients and collaboration on research initiatives toward the 
goal of enhanced cancer treatment for all service members and 
their families.
    Orthotics and Prosthetics Outcomes Research.--The Committee 
recommends $10,000,000 in support of orthotics and prosthetics 
outcomes research. The focus of this research should be on 
outcomes-based best practices through analysis of the merits of 
clinical options currently available, not on the development or 
improvement of new and existing technology. The Committee 
directs the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs) to 
provide a report not later than 180 days after the enactment of 
this act to the congressional defense committees on the peer-
reviewed projects that receive funding. The report should 
include the funding amount awarded to each project and the 
anticipated effect on patient care.
    Advanced Orthopedic Surgical Training.--The Committee 
encourages the Department of Defense to provide advanced 
surgical training in arthroscopic techniques from within 
appropriated funds. The Defense Health Agency is encouraged to 
partner with medical professional societies that maintain best 
practices relating to orthopedic procedures, including 
orthopedic training protocols and learning centers.
    Collaboration on Medical Research.--The Committee 
understands that the Department is continuing to work with the 
National Institutes of Health [NIH] on furthering a pilot 
program to share Department of Defense research data into 
Federal Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tools Expenditures 
and Results [RePORTER]. The Committee continues to support this 
effort to share medical research data across Federal agencies 
and encourages the Department to require its use across the 
services to ensure all Department research data is entered into 
Federal RePORTER. Additionally, the Department should provide 
appropriate resources, both in amount and type of 
appropriation, in future budget submissions to carry out this 
effort.
    In fiscal year 2015, the Committee directed the Department 
to contract with the Institute of Medicine to evaluate the 
Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program and provide a 
report to the congressional defense committees within 12 
months. This report will include an evaluation of the 
Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program's two-tiered 
peer review process, its coordination of research priorities 
with NIH and recommendations for how the process can be 
improved. The Committee is aware that work on this report is 
ongoing and looks forward to receiving the report as part of 
its efforts to continue to ensure that government investments 
in medical research are maximized.
    Mental Health Professionals.--The Committee recognizes that 
servicemembers and their families face unique stresses beyond 
those of everyday life. After over a decade of war, the need 
for mental health professionals in the Department is at an all-
time high, and the Committee believes that every beneficiary of 
the Military Health System should have timely access to mental 
health services. However, the Committee is concerned with the 
Department's inability to recruit and retain enough 
psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurse 
practitioners, and registered nurses to provide adequate mental 
healthcare.
    The Government Accountability Office [GAO] review of this 
issue found that progress is being made regarding the annual 
reporting of mental health professional staffing needs. 
However, GAO also noted that the services need to accurately 
report any additional measures used to supplement the 
Psychological Health Risk-Adjusted Model for Staffing [PHRAMS] 
as well as report their PHRAMS-generated estimates in the 
requirements fields of the Defense Health Agency's [DHA] 
quarterly mental health staffing reports.
    The Committee encourages the Assistant Secretary of Defense 
(Health Affairs), the Director of the Defense Health Agency, 
and the Service Surgeons General to continue to work together 
to ensure annual estimates of mental health professionals meet 
the needs of all beneficiaries in the military health system. 
In addition, the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health 
Affairs) is directed to prepare as part of DHA's fiscal year 
2018 budget submission a review of these estimates as well as 
an outline of current challenges in recruiting and retaining 
mental health professionals by the Department of Defense.
    Brain Tissue Repository.--The Committee applauds the 
Department's recent efforts in advancing the study and 
treatment of traumatic brain injury in servicemembers by 
partnering with the National Institutes of Health to create the 
world's first human brain tissue repository for military 
personnel at the Uniformed Services University of the Health 
Sciences. In fiscal year 2015, the Committee directed the 
Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs) to provide a 
report outlining strategies for overcoming roadblocks to post-
mortem brain donation in the military. The Committee has 
received this report and appreciates the progress that the 
Department is making with Organ Procurement Organizations and 
the National Disease Research Interchange to increase 
donations. The Committee encourages the Department to continue 
these efforts to advance research to improve the protection and 
care of servicemembers.
    Operation Live Well, Healthy Base Initiative, and Total 
Force Fitness.--The Committee understands that there is 
considerable evidence of an emerging nutrition problem within 
the Armed Forces. A November 2015 report by the Army Surgeon 
General, ``Health of the Force,'' found that nutrition has a 
direct bearing on readiness. Additionally, a September 2014 
report by Mission Readiness, ``Retreat is Not an Option,'' 
found that the military spends over $1,000,000,000 per year to 
treat weight-related health problems through TRICARE. Another 
report found that the Navy is losing between $200,000,000 and 
$300,000,000 in annual training investments because sailors 
fail to pass physical fitness tests.
    To address this and other health issues, the Committee has 
appropriated $3,000,000 each year since fiscal year 2014 to 
advance the Department's Healthy Base Initiative [HBI] pilot 
program and Total Force Fitness [TFF] Program. These 
initiatives have shown the potential to dramatically enhance 
recruitment, retention, readiness and resilience for the entire 
military community by improving and expanding healthier food 
offerings across all bases, including mission dining 
facilities, morale, welfare and recreation programs, exchange 
food offerings, and commissaries.
    Going forward, these efforts will be part of the Operation 
Live Well program, which has subsumed both HBI and TFF, and 
will continue its focus on healthy options while paying 
particular attention to those service personnel and their 
families living off of military installations. The Committee 
again recommends an additional $3,000,000 to support these 
initiatives. It also notes that the Department has established 
the Office of the Executive Director, Force Resiliency, within 
the office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and 
Readiness, to oversee these efforts.
    Reconstructive Transplantation.--Reconstructive 
transplantation is a rapidly growing discipline that greatly 
benefits from collaboration among institutions, surgeons, and 
investigators working to improve the lives of servicemembers 
who suffer significant injuries due to combat related injuries 
often caused by improvised explosive devices. The Department's 
continued research into reconstructive transplantation will 
allow surgeons and investigators to refine approaches for hand, 
face and other vascularized composite tissue allografts 
including the transplants of skin, muscle, tendon, nerves, 
bone, and blood vessels. The Committee strongly supports the 
basic, translational and clinical research needed to improve 
access to reconstructive transplants and state-of-the-art 
immunotherapy. The Committee encourages the Department to 
promote multi-institutional and intra-institutional, 
multidisciplinary collaborations among clinicians and research 
scientists to help advance promising ideas in reconstructive 
composite tissue transplantation into clinical applications.
    Improving Military Medicine's Management of Pain.--The 
Committee has supported the Department's efforts to address the 
needs of servicemembers, especially those that have served 
multiple times in Iraq and Afghanistan, who are living with 
chronic pain related to military service and deployments. The 
Committee has previously supported the Department's 
strengthening of the Uniformed Services University of the 
Health Sciences' Defense and Veterans Center for Integrative 
Pain Management [DVCIPM] as the proponent for consensus 
recommendations for Department-wide improvements in pain 
medicine policies, practice, education, and research. The 
DVCIPM is also responsible for addressing the recommendations 
of the Army Pain Management Task Force for state of the art 
science modalities and technologies to address acute and 
chronic pain of service members and other patients. The 
Committee acknowledges the work that has been accomplished by 
the DVCIPM and encourages continued investment in these vital 
efforts.
    Global Health.--The Committee recognizes the critical 
contribution that the Department of Defense research and 
development [R&D;] portfolio makes in protecting servicemembers 
from infectious diseases they may encounter on missions around 
the world and the need to sustain and support U.S. investment 
in this area by fully funding R&D; programs that carry out this 
work within the Department of Defense Health Program, 
Department of the Army and Department of the Navy Research, 
Development, Test and Evaluation budgets.
    Medical Defense Against Infectious Disease.--The Committee 
recognizes the importance of prevention and treatment of 
naturally occurring infectious diseases and tropical infectious 
diseases, such as malaria, Dengue, and Chikungunya viruses. 
These diseases pose a significant threat to the strategic 
access and operational effectiveness of forces deployed outside 
the United States. The Committee is concerned with the 
Department's decisions over recent years to precipitously 
decrease funding for malaria research and encourages the 
Department to address these diseases of military importance and 
invest in research for chemoprophylaxis, surveillance, novel 
approaches to vaccine development, and other countermeasures. 
The Committee urges the Department to partner with colleges and 
universities that have strong research programs in infectious 
diseases, as well as other Federal agencies, foreign 
governments, international agencies, and nonprofit 
organizations to mitigate duplication of effort and maximize 
the use of Department resources.
    Additionally, several emerging infectious diseases have 
taken the global community by surprise over the last few 
decades, including SARS, H1N1, Ebola, and Zika. Disease 
surveillance, rapid detection, outbreak response, and 
epidemiology are essential to providing an early warning of 
emerging infectious disease threats to servicemembers abroad 
and global health security in general. The Committee recommends 
$225,900,000 for core Defense Health Program research and 
encourages the Department to continue its investments in 
neglected and infectious diseases.
    Trauma Clinical Research Network.--The Committee 
acknowledges that the last 15 years of war in Afghanistan and 
Iraq have enabled the U.S. military to learn vital lessons in 
combat casualty care. The Committee encourages the Assistant 
Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs), the Director of the 
Defense Health Agency, and the Commander of the U.S. Army 
Institute of Surgical Research to work with other Federal 
agencies focused on tactical combat casualty care [TCCC]. TCCC 
has become the gold standard in combat care and has achieved 
the best casualty outcomes in the history of modern warfare. It 
is imperative that we sustain these advances and ensure that 
lessons learned are being incorporated into best practice 
trauma care guidelines throughout the military. The Committee 
encourages the Department to ensure that military advances in 
combat casualty care are rapidly, uniformly, and permanently 
implemented throughout the U.S. military. Further, the 
Committee encourages the Department to continue allocating 
sufficient resources for these efforts in future budget 
submissions.
    Warfighter Respiratory Health.--The Committee understands 
that respiratory diseases affect more than 100,000 
servicemembers each year and is concerned about respiratory 
ailments among deployed and returning servicemembers. Beyond 
the decreased quality of life for affected servicemembers, 
respiratory diseases result in almost 27,000 lost workdays per 
year. The Committee encourages the Department to provide 
adequate resources for research on respiratory health.
    Epilepsy Research.--The Committee is concerned about the 
large number of service men and women returning from combat 
zones who have sustained traumatic brain injuries [TBI] and the 
long term consequences of TBI. These wounded warriors are at 
high risk for developing post-traumatic epilepsy, depression, 
cognitive difficulties, and post-traumatic stress disorder, 
which may be interconnected. As current TBI longitudinal 
studies have not included epilepsy, the Committee encourages 
the Department to place greater priority and invest more 
funding in longitudinal epidemiological research, including 
epilepsy surveillance, to better understand the magnitude of 
the problem and improve patient care and outcomes. To assist in 
these efforts, the Committee recommends $7,500,000 in support 
of epilepsy research. Additionally, the Committee urges the 
Department to expand research into the mechanisms by which 
brain injury produces epilepsy and research directed at the 
prevention of epilepsy and concomitant comorbidities in those 
known to be at high risk.
    Melanoma Research.--The Committee understands that melanoma 
diagnoses are increasing among active duty servicemembers and 
that melanoma is the fifth most common cancer among veterans. 
Recent research suggests that exposure to high levels of solar 
radiation in young adulthood is associated with a higher risk 
of melanoma mortality. Given the extreme and harsh conditions 
servicemembers face in theater and the rise of this aggressive 
and frequently deadly form of cancer, the Committee encourages 
the Department to continue its investments in melanoma 
research.
    Sleep Disorder Research.--The Committee recognizes that 
sleep disorders are increasingly prevalent among servicemembers 
and that such disruptions have been associated with diverse 
mental and physical disorders, including traumatic brain injury 
and post-traumatic stress. The Committee applauds the Army for 
acknowledging the importance of sleep in achieving optimal 
physical, mental, and emotional health and including sleep as a 
focus in the Performance Triad. In support of this effort, the 
Committee urges the Department to support basic, translational, 
and clinical research on how the disruption of normal sleep and 
circadian biological rhythms adversely affects the health, 
safety, performance, and productivity of military and civilian 
populations.
    Hydrocephalus Research.--The Committee is concerned that 
some of the estimated 294,000 servicemembers who have sustained 
a traumatic brain injury in Operation Enduring Freedom and 
Iraqi Freedom are at higher risk for developing hydrocephalus. 
Hydrocephalus, an increased accumulation of fluid in the brain, 
often has a delayed onset and can easily be misdiagnosed as 
dementia or other aging related diseases. Given that there is 
currently no cure for hydrocephalus and current treatment 
options are limited and have high failure rates, the Committee 
encourages the Department to increase its investments in 
hydrocephalus research.
    Sustained-Release Drug Delivery.--The Committee encourages 
development of technology that can deliver oral drugs for up to 
one week or more for specific, targeted, military healthcare 
needs. Potential application of this technology could include 
long-acting oral therapies for post-traumatic stress, opiate 
dependence, low-dose pain control, allergies, attention 
deficit/hyperactivity disorder, chemoprophylaxis, and other 
Department-identified priority areas. Most oral therapies are 
limited in their duration of efficacy by short half-lives in 
the body and by the rapid gastrointestinal transit of the pill. 
Oral, long-acting therapies may be particularly advantageous in 
complex environments with limited access to medical personnel 
and resources.
    Biomarkers for Hazardous Exposures.--The Committee 
recognizes that hazardous exposures cost the Departments of 
Defense and Veterans Affairs billions of dollars annually in 
medical care, reduce servicemember performance and create a 
multitude of health compensation claims. Identifying biomarkers 
for toxic or psychologically traumatic exposures could allow 
for faster diagnosis and treatment of a number of exposure-
related conditions among military and veteran populations. The 
Committee supports research efforts that capitalize on recent 
advances in exposure science, biosignatures discovery, wearable 
sensors technology, chemical surveillance, and systems biology 
including proteomics, genomics, and metabolomics. Further, the 
Committee encourages the Department to collaborate with 
research universities, medical research centers, and National 
Laboratories that specialize in the enumerated health research 
capabilities. This research shall aim to align and integrate 
research and development efforts to rapidly transition products 
in support of the emerging Joint Health Risk Management 
Program.
    Behavioral and Mental Health Care for National Guard and 
Reserve.--The Committee recognizes that the men and women of 
the National Guard and Reserve components need greater access 
to care if they are to maintain a high state of medical 
readiness to support regularly occurring deployments. It also 
recognizes that the suicide rate in the reserve components is 
consistently higher than the suicide rate for both the active 
duty military and the civilian population. Therefore, the 
Committee encourages the Department to better ensure that 
periodic health assessments are followed by medical treatment 
to address any behavioral or mental health conditions that 
could impact a servicemember's ability to deploy, even if such 
care falls outside of the pre-deployment window. This practice 
would allow for a more medically ready, deployable force and 
would expand access to behavioral and mental healthcare for 
reserve component servicemembers.
    Biological Dosimetry Network for Radiological/Nuclear 
Events.--The Committee is concerned that the detonation of a 
nuclear weapon at a Department of Defense facility or in a 
combat zone has the potential to expose numerous military and 
civilian personnel to radiation and non-radiation effects. This 
type of event could overwhelm medical personnel unless 
effective triage is in place. A biodosimetry network could 
provide an estimate of the radiation dose an individual 
actually received and would clearly identify those in need of 
further treatment. The Committee understands that the 
Department is in the process of developing a biodosimetry 
network and encourages the expeditious development and testing 
of such a network. Further, the Department should coordinate 
its efforts with the Departments of Health and Human Services, 
Homeland Security, the Food and Drug Administration and other 
agencies as appropriate.
    Operational Risk Management of Deployment Exposures.--The 
Committee continues to be concerned about the hazardous 
occupational and environmental health [OEH] exposures (dust, 
burn pits, endemic disease, etc.) occurring during deployment 
and the negative impacts that these exposures have on health 
and mission readiness. In May 2015, a Government Accountability 
Office [GAO] report noted that while significant improvements 
have occurred in deployment force health protection since the 
Gulf War, there are certain gaps that demand immediate 
attention and remediation including: establishing clear OEH 
policy and procedures; requiring all other military-service-
specific policies be amended and implemented to ensure 
consistency and revising CENTCOM policies to require adequate 
documentation and consistent monitoring of deployment risk 
mitigation activities. The Committee encourages the Department 
to take steps to review and address the prevention, mitigation, 
and avoidance strategies, policies, and procedures and to 
develop and implement the GAO recommendations within the 
operational risk management construct, including during the 
deployment planning stages and throughout the remainder of the 
deployment process.
    Real-Time Locating System [RTLS] Technology.--The Committee 
understands that automated resource management systems may 
improve patient care in both normal and emergency situations 
and that the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command 
and Telemedicine Advanced Technology Research Center have begun 
research to define, exercise, and refine best practices for 
management of blast injury mass casualty disasters through the 
use of RTLS technology. The Committee encourages the Department 
to continue this research and focus on creating an open 
framework on which private sector vendors can create solutions 
that can homogenize location data from disparate systems and 
accelerate the adoption of multi-site implementations.
    Military Medical Photonics.--Military Medical Photonics 
research improves battlefield patient care using photomedicine 
technologies and exemplifies how mission-oriented research can 
benefit both military and civilian populations. Recent 
breakthroughs in this research include major technology 
advances in burn and wound management, tissue imaging and 
bonding for vascular and reconstructive surgery, diagnosis, and 
treatment of major eye diseases and trauma, critical care 
sensors and monitors, early assessment of inhalation airway 
injury, rapid imaging of coronary artery disease, and 
normalization of severe scarring from wounds of war. This 
program has made great progress in the development of 
important, innovative technologies for battlefield medicine, 
and the Committee encourages the Department to maintain funding 
for this research at historical levels in future budgets.
    Medical Follow-Up Agency of the Institute of Medicine.--The 
Committee acknowledges the important contributions of the 
Medical Follow-Up Agency [MFUA] to Department of Defense 
medical research efforts and urges the Department to continue 
to support the agency with the modest investments necessary to 
maintain epidemiological research and biospecimens. These 
investments will allow MFUA to quickly respond to the health 
information needs of active duty military and veteran 
populations and keep them viable for future research efforts.
    Effect of the Gut Microbiome on Chronic Disease.--The 
Committee understands that recent research suggests the levels 
of microbiota can affect a patient's overall health and that 
the Department plans to research the impact of gut microbiome 
on warfighter readiness and performance. The Committee applauds 
these efforts and encourages the Department to also investigate 
the impact of gut microbiome on long-term chronic conditions, 
such as heart disease, kidney disease, and hypertension.

    National Guard Counter-Drug Program.--The Committee remains 
concerned that the Department continues to reduce overall 
funding for the National Guard Counter-Drug program, and 
disagrees with the fiscal year 2017 President's budget request 
which does not fund these activities under an independent 
budget line. The Committee recommends $214,000,000 for the 
National Guard Counter-Drug program and directs the Department 
to include an individual budget line for this program in its 
fiscal year 2018 budget submission.
    National Guard Counter-Drug Schools.--The Committee 
continues to support the counter-drug schools' mission of 
providing combatant commands, law enforcement agencies, 
community-based organizations, and military personnel with 
training to support and enhance their capabilities to detect, 
interdict, disrupt, and curtail drug trafficking as an 
important component of our overall effort to reduce drug crimes 
and protect national security. The Committee recommends 
$20,000,000 for the counter-drug schools to achieve their full 
mission and directs the Department to include an individual 
budget line for this program in its fiscal year 2018 budget 
submission.

                                OVERVIEW

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $58,635,004,000 of additional 
appropriations for Overseas Contingency Operations/Global War 
on Terrorism in fiscal year 2017. This funding will ensure that 
resources, equipment, and supplies are available for our 
servicemembers without interruption, and will enable the 
Department to avoid absorbing operational costs from within 
baseline programs that are critical to future readiness and 
home-station activities.

                         REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

    The Committee eliminates the reporting requirement for Cost 
of War Execution reports. However, the Secretary of Defense is 
directed to submit reports, on a quarterly basis, to the 
congressional defense committees not later than 30 days after 
the last day of each quarter of the fiscal year that detail 
commitment, obligation, and expenditure data by sub-activity 
group for the Afghanistan Security Forces Fund and the Counter-
the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant Fund.

                           MILITARY PERSONNEL

    The Committee recommends a total of $3,562,258,000 for pay, 
allowances, and other personnel costs for Active, Reserve, and 
Guard troops activated for duty in Afghanistan and other 
contingency operations. This recommendation includes funding 
for subsistence, permanent change of station travel, and 
special pays including imminent danger pay, family separation 
allowance, and hardship duty pay.
