                    U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE
99-012                    WASHINGTON : 2002

                                           The White House,
                                          Washington, May 29, 2002.
Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: I ask the Congress to consider the 
enclosed request for an FY 2003 budget amendment for the 
Department of Defense reflecting my decision to cancel the 
Army's Crusader artillery system. The budget totals proposed in 
my FY 2003 Budget would not be affected by this amendment.
    The details of this request are set forth in the enclosed 
letter from the Director of the Office of Management and 
Budget. I concur with his comments and observations.
            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.
    Enclosure.
                [Estimate No. 12, 107th Cong., 2d Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                      Washington, DC, May 17, 2002.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration is a request for an FY 
2003 budget amendment for the Department of Defense (DOD). The 
budget totals proposed in your FY 2003 Budget would not be 
affected by this amendment. The amendment reflects your 
decision to terminate the Army's Crusader artillery development 
program in favor of more transformational investments to make 
the Army's indirect fire support systems relevant to 21st 
Century warfare.
    Your FY 2003 Budget included $475.6 million for research 
and development of the Crusader. As described in more detail in 
the enclosure, the current proposal would reallocate this 
funding from the Army's Crusader artillery program to support 
transformation of the Army by accelerating development of the 
Army's Future Combat System-Indirect Fires program, the 
Excalibur 155mm precision projectile, the Guided Multiple 
Launch Rocket System, the High Mobility Artillery Rocket 
System, and Tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicle improvements, 
among other purposes.
    This proposal will produce a substantial boost to the long-
term capabilities of the Army, reflecting lessons learned from 
recent miltiary operations where the accuracy and 
responsiveness of precision weapons have been critical. The 
proposed reallocation of funds will support the development of 
the Army's Objective Force and will increase its ability to 
provide indirect fire support with greater precision in the 
future.
    I have carefully reviewed this proposal and am satisfied 
that it is necessary at this time. Therefore, I join the 
Secretary of Defense in recommending that you transmit the 
proposal to the Congress.
            Sincerely,
                                  Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr.,
                                                          Director.
    Enclosure.

                         DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE

FY 2003 Budget Appendix Page: 295
FY 2003 Pending Request: $6,918,494,000
Proposed Amendment: --
Revised Request: $6,918,494,000
    This proposal reflects the President's decision to 
terminate the Army's Crusade artillery system in favor of more 
transformational technologies. The proposal would reallocate 
$475.6 million requested for the Crusader program in the 
Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E), Army 
account to the following efforts (all within the RDT&E, Army 
account):
          $310.0 million to accelerate the Army's Future Combat 
        System (FCS)-Indirect Fires program. The FCS is an 
        ensemble of fighting capabilities that will make the 
        Army more mobile and will provide capabilities to meet 
        the Army's Objective Force needs. They include the 
        following indirect fire programs for the 
        transformational force:
                  $57.0 million for Netfires Systems Technology 
                to develop early prototypes of the netfire 
                precision attack missile;
                  $57.5 million to develop Netfires command and 
                control technology infrastructure that is 
                required to support Netfires; and
                  $195.5 million to conduct modeling and 
                simulation activities and develop prototypes in 
                support of Objective Force Indirect Fires.
          $48.3 million to accelerate development of the 
        Excalibur precision artillery projectile and the fuze 
        setter for three ongoing or existing artillery 
        systems--the Light Weight 155mm towed howitzer, the 
        Paladin M109 self-propelled howitzer, and the M198 
        towed howitzer;
          $11.4 million to accelerate the development of 
        targeting capabilities for the Army's Tactical Unmanned 
        Aerial Vehicle;
          $10.8 million to accelerate the development of the 
        targeting capabilities for a new Precision Guided 
        Mortar Munition;
          $45.0 million to start development of a new variant 
        of the Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System;
          $10.0 million to accelerate testing and evaluation of 
        the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System, a lighter, 
        more mobile long-range rocket system;
          $28.6 million to complete development of a new engine 
        for the existing Abrams tank, formerly a joint program 
        with the Crusader;
          $7.5 million to accelerate the development of 
        electronic upgrades to enhance the effectiveness and 
        supportability of existing M109 Paladin self-propelled 
        155mm howitzers; and
          $4.0 million to complete development of the Advanced 
        Field Artillery Tactical Data System, a program to 
        improve command and control of indirect fire support 
        systems.
    This amendment would not affect the proposed budget totals.
