The applications of Automatic weapon systems
include airborne, land-base, and naval.
NAVSUP WSS participation in this phase is critical as it leads to decreased lifecycle costs for weapon systems
The use of optically-networked assemblies in defense and aerospace weapon systems
is growing rapidly, and the optical test capabilities of the associated ATE is generally inadequate to provide critical fault detection.
This equipment aided MOS 94Y (integrated family of test equipment operator/maintainer) Soldiers in diagnosing and repairing electronic LRMs for aviation and missile weapon systems
(26) A weapon system
can be defined broadly as a weapon and
The two new weapon systems

The ACD weapon system
evolved from the AFCERT, which has primary responsibility for coordinating the former Air Force Information Warfare Center's technical resources to assess, analyze, and mitigate computer security incidents and vulnerabilities.
At the company level, it is not as important that the company level leadership be experts with each weapon system
; however, they do need to become intimately familiar with the capabilities and limitations of each weapon as that will play a major role in the planning and execution of combined operations.
The Department of Defense (DOD) spends billions of dollars each year to sustain its weapon systems
. These operating and support (O&S) costs can account for a significant portion of a system's total life-cycle costs and include costs for repair parts, maintenance, and personnel.
Contemporary Issues in this edition presents two articles "Capabilities-Based Resourcing for Air Force Weapon System
Sustainment" and "Preserving the Industrial Base: Is the United States Air Force Responsible?"
"It is very, very important," Payton said, "that we start these programs with enough resources to be successful across the life cycle of the weapon system
." That means, she added, that requirements must be realistic and programs must be appropriately costed.
(8) In each of these weapons systems, the GAO found that because the government lacked technical data rights, it in competitively acquiring additional weapons systems, in acquiring needed spare parts, and in performing maintenance on these weapon systems
