Phi Beta Iota: From where we sit, much of defense intelligence has forgotten its mission or accepted orders to support ideologically-desired systems instead of reality-based systems. The 80-20 rule applies.  No, the above products do not exist that we know of, they were recommended in 1991 and dismissed–not then or since has anyone actually wanted to do reality-based planning, programming, budgeting, and acquisition–until DIA folds the Service centers in under discipline, and USD (I) gets ownership of Operational Test & Evaluation as the book-end to USD (I) validated Mission Needs Statements (MSN) and Required Operational Capabilities (ROC), the acquisition program will continue to be totally out of control and largely incoherent.
