SCO seeks $1.1 billion in FY-18, exponential increase to support 'new era of power projection'

Jason Sherman | May 24, 2017

The once-secretive Strategic Capabilities Office is seeking $1.1 billion -- the second largest unclassified pot of research and development funding in the Defense Department's fiscal year 2018 budget -- to develop new, and the Pentagon hopes, surprising ways of using existing systems to bolster conventional deterrence against China and Russia.

The Defense Department is requesting $574.5 billion in base spending for fiscal year 2018 and $64.5 billion in Overseas Contingency Operations funding, which in total include $208.6 billion in acquisition spending on major weapon systems, according to documents released by the Pentagon.

The Navy can grow the fleet faster than many in Washington predict by taking advantage of hot production lines, pursuing new technologies and extending the lives of older ships, according to a white paper published by Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson.

The Air Force's fiscal year 2018 budget request proposes a $4.5 billion increase to its Next-Generation Air Dominance program over the next five years -- potentially lending momentum to the service's lengthy effort to develop a follow-on to the F-22.

The Trump administration will propose increasing the Pentagon's investment spending to more than $200 billion in fiscal year 2018 -- lifting budgets for new weapon systems to levels not seen since FY-12, according to a leaked spreadsheet of the FY-18 spending proposal.
