Summary
The Expeditionary Fire Support System (EFSS) -- which consists of two kinds of motorized vehicles, a 120-mm mortar, an ammunition trailer, and fire direction equipment -- is being developed to meet the United States Marine Corps' need for a weapon system that can be carried inside the MV-22 Osprey to support assault operations. The Marine Corps Operational Test and Evaluation Activity (MCOTEA), the test agency for the Marines, conducted initial operational testing and evaluation of the EFSS from May to July 2007, and reported in September 2007, among other things, that it experienced several safety, performance, reliability, and mechanical problems. In October 2008, you asked us to provide you with a brief assessment of the Marine Corps' conclusions regarding whether the concerns we reported have been addressed
