08 May 13. Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: U.S DoD Commercial Off-the-Shelf Aircraft Market. As the DoD’s discretionary spending continues to decrease in favor of mandatory government programs, utilization of COTS aircraft has become more popular due to perceived cost savings over developing entirely new aircraft systems. COTS aircraft have also been favored for quick reaction capability (QRC) systems because they allow flexibility and speed in meeting the changing warfighting requirements of commanders in the field. However, the DoD has historically submitted poorly defined requirements for COTS systems which severely limits potential cost savings. This research service analyzes DoD COTS aircraft market drivers, restraints, and trends through 2017 then makes educated predictions beyond the forecast period. (Source: Yahoo!/PRNewswire)
