FY 2020 Program Acquisition Costs by Weapon System
(Source: US Department of Defense; issued March 12, 2019)
The performance of United States (U.S.) weapon systems are unmatched, ensuring that U.S. military forces have a tactical combat advantage over any adversary in any environmental situation.

The Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 acquisition (Procurement and Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation (RDT&E)) funding requested by the Department of Defense (DoD) totals $247.3 billion, which includes funding in the Base budget and the Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) fund, totaling $143.1 billion for Procurement and $104.3 billion for RDT&E.

The funding in the budget request represents a balanced portfolio approach to implement the military force objective established by the National Defense Strategy. Of the $247.3 billion in the request, $83.9 billion finances Major Defense Acquisition Programs (MDAPs), which are acquisition programs that exceed a cost threshold established by the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment.
