 1.2    Definitions

       For the purposes of this report, the following timeframes apply:

                Forecast Period: 2012 to 2022

       The following are definitions of military expenditure

                Capital expenditure (capex) covers research and development (R&D), procurement, maintenance,
                transportation and storage of weaponry and other equipment. It also includes expenditure on aircraft
                and aero-engines, heavy and medium vehicles, naval equipment and expenditure on the purchase
                of land, construction, plants and machinery.


       The following are definitions of categories:

                C4ISR based Soldier modernization Systems are systems that enhance the soldier’s ability to
                direct, coordinate, and control personnel, weapons, equipment, information, and procedures
                necessary to accomplish the mission. Command, control, and communications have combined,
                arms compatible systems providing total situational awareness. This is supported by the aggregated
                capabilities of the soldier’s radio and computer, integrated with digital head mounted displays,
                combat identification, and navigation aids.
                Lethality based Soldier Modernization Systems are systems that enhance the soldier’s ability to
                detect, recognize, and destroy the enemy targets. Lethality systems enhance individual, crew, and
                personal combat weapons with improved effectiveness. Examples of these systems are the
                Objective Individual Combat Weapon (OICW) and Land Warrior (LW) systems.
                Mobility based Soldier Modernization Systems are systems that enhance the ability to move
                about the battlefield with accompanying load to execute assigned missions. These systems enable
                accurate and rapid insertion for personnel, supplies, and equipment into the battlefield.
                Survivability based Soldier Modernization Systems are systems that enhance the ability of
                individual soldiers to protect themselves against weapon impacts and environmental conditions. The
                primary requirement for survivability is the capab
