SEC. 129. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON IMPORTANCE OF ENGINEERING IN EARLY 
                    STAGES OF SHIPBUILDING.

    It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) placing a priority on engineering dollars in 
        the early stages of shipbuilding programs is a vital 
        component of keeping cost down; and
            (2) therefore, the Secretary of the Navy should 
        take appropriate steps to prioritize early engineering 
        in large ship construction including amphibious class 
        ships beginning with the LHA-8.

SEC. 130. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON NUCLEAR-POWERED BALLISTIC SUBMARINES.

    It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) the continuous at-sea deterrence provided by a 
        robust and modern fleet of nuclear-powered ballistic 
        missile submarines is critical to maintaining nuclear 
        deterrence and assurance and therefore is a central 
        pillar of the national security of the United States;
            (2) the Navy should--
                    (A) carry out a program to replace the Ohio 
                class ballistic missile submarines;
                    (B) ensure that the first such replacement 
                submarine is delivered and fully operational by 
                not later than 2031 in order to maintain 
                continuous at-sea deterrence; and
                    (C) develop a risk mitigation plan to 
                ensure that robust continuous at-sea deterrence 
                is provided during the transition from Ohio 
                class ballistic missile submarines to the 
                replacement submarines; and
            (3) a minimum of 12 replacement ballistic missile 
        submarines are necessary to provide continuous at-sea 
        deterrence over the lifetime of such submarines and, 
        therefore, the Navy should carry out a program to 
        produce 12 such submarines.

SEC. 131. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON MARINE CORPS AMPHIBIOUS LIFT AND 
                    PRESENCE REQUIREMENTS.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
            (1) The Marine Corps is a combat force that 
        leverages maneuver from the sea as a force multiplier 
        allowing for a variety of operational tasks ranging 
        from major combat operations to humanitarian 
        assistance.
            (2) The Marine Corps is unique in that, while 
        embarked upon naval vessels, they bring all the 
        logistic support necessary for the full range of 
        military operations and, operating ``from the sea'', 
        they require no third-party host nation permission to 
        conduct military operations.
            (3) The Navy has a requirement for 38 amphibious 
        assault ships to meet this full range of military 
        operations.
            (4) Due only to fiscal constraints, that 
        requirement of 38 vessels was reduced to 33 vessels, 
        which adds military risk to future operations.
            (5) The Navy has been unable to meet even the 
        minimal requirement of 30 operationally available 
        vessels and has submitted a shipbuilding and ship 
        retirement plan to Congress that will reduce the force 
        to 28 vessels.
            (6) Experience has shown that early engineering and 
        design of naval vessels has significantly reduced the 
        acquisition costs and life-cycle costs of those 
        vessels.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) the Department of Defense should carefully 
        evaluate the maritime force structure necessary to 
        execute demand for forces by the commanders of the 
        combatant commands;
            (2) the Navy should carefully evaluate amphibious 
        lift capabilities to meet current and projected 
        requirements;
            (3) the Navy should consider prioritization of 
        investment in and procurement of the next generation of 
        amphibious assault ships as a component of the balanced 
        battle force;
            (4) the next generation amphibious assault ships 
        should maintain survivability protection;
            (5) operation and maintenance requirements 
        analysis, as well as the potential to leverage a common 
        hull form design, should be considered to reduce total 
        ownership cost and acquisition cost; and
            (6) maintaining a robust amphibious ship building 
        industrial base is vital for the future of the national 
        security of the United States.

SEC. 132. SENSE OF THE SENATE ON DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY FISCAL YEAR 
                    2014 BUDGET REQUEST FOR TACTICAL AVIATION AIRCRAFT.

    It is the sense of the Senate that, if the budget request 
of the Department of the Navy for fiscal year 2014 for F-18 
aircraft includes a request for funds for more than 13 new F-18 
aircraft, the budget request of the Department of the Navy for 
fiscal year 2014 for F-35 aircraft should include a request for 
funds for not fewer than six F-35B aircraft and four F-35C 
aircraft, presuming that development, testing, and production 
of the F-35 aircraft are proceeding according to current plans.

137(d)(3)(B) of the National Defense Authorization Act for 
Fiscal Year 2010 (Public Law 111-84; 123 Stat. 2221) is amended 
by striking ``316 strategic airlift aircraft'' and inserting 
``275 strategic airlift aircraft''.
    (c) Mobility Requirements and Capabilities Study 2018.--
            (1) In general.--The Director of Cost Assessment 
        and Program Evaluation and the Chairman of the Joint

        conduct a study that assesses the end-to-end, full-
        spectrum mobility requirements for all aspects of the 
        National Military Strategy derived from the National 
        Defense Strategy that is a result of the 2012 Defense 
        Strategic Guidance published by the President in 
        February 2012 and other planning documents of the 
        Department of Defense.

        States homeland against the threat of limited ballistic 
        missile attack (whether accidental, unauthorized, or 
        deliberate);
            (2) the currently deployed ground-based midcourse 
        defense system, with 30 ground-based interceptors 
        deployed in Alaska and California, provides a level of 
        protection of the United States homeland;
            (3) it is essential for the ground-based midcourse 
        defense system to achieve the levels of reliability, 
        availability, sustainability, and operational 
        performance that will allow it to continue providing 
        protection of the United States homeland;
            (4) the Missile Defense Agency should, as its 
        highest priority, correct the problem that caused the 
        December 2010 ground-based midcourse defense system 
        flight test failure and demonstrate the correction in 
        flight tests before resuming production of the 
        capability enhancement-II kill vehicle, in order to 
        provide confidence that the system will work as 
        intended;
            (5) the Department of Defense should continue to 
        enhance the performance and reliability of the ground-
        based midcourse defense system, and enhance the 
        capability of the ballistic missile defense system, to 
        provide improved capability to defend the homeland;
            (6) the Missile Defense Agency should have a 
        robust, rigorous, and operationally realistic testing 
        program for the ground-based midcourse defense system, 
        including salvo testing, multiple simultaneous 
        engagement testing, and operational testing;
            (7) the Department of Defense has taken a number of 
        prudent, affordable, cost-effective, and operationally 
        significant steps to hedge against the possibility of 
        future growth in the missile threat to the homeland 
        from North Korea and Iran; and
            (8) the Department of Defense should continue to 
        evaluate the evolving threat of limited ballistic 
        missile attack, particularly from countries such as 
        North Korea and Iran, and consider other possibilities 
        for prudent, affordable, cost-effective, and 
        operationally significant steps to improve the posture 
        of the United States to defend the homeland.
    (b) Report.--

                the exoatmospheric kill vehicle, and any other 
                actions to improve the homeland missile defense 
                posture to hedge against potential future 
                growth in the threat of limited ballistic 
                missile attack (whether accidental, 
                unauthorized, or deliberate), particularly from 
                countries such as North Korea and Iran.
                    (B) A description of any improvements 
                achieved as a result of the actions described 
                in subparagraph (A).
                    (C) A description of the results of the two 
                planned flight tests of the ground-based 
                midcourse defense system (control test vehicle 
                flight test-1, and GMD flight test-06b) 
                intended to demonstrate the success of the 
                correction of the problem that caused the 
                flight test failure of December 2010, and the 
                status of any decision to resume production of 
                the capability enhancement-II kill vehicle.
                    (D) a detailed description of the planned

                missile-3 block IIB interceptor to augment the 
                defense of the homeland, including the 
                capabilities needed to defeat long-range 
                missiles that could be launched from Iran to 
                the United States;
                    (E) Any other matters the Secretary 
                considers appropriate.
            (3) Form of report.--The report shall be submitted

SEC. 229. REGIONAL BALLISTIC MISSILE DEFENSE.

    (a) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) the threat from regional ballistic missiles, 
        particularly from Iran and North Korea, is serious and 
        growing, and puts at risk forward-deployed forces of 
        the United States and allies and partners in Europe, 
        the Middle East, and the Asia-Pacific region;
            (2) the Department of Defense has an obligation to 
        provide force protection of forward-deployed forces, 
        assets, and facilities of the United States from 
        regional ballistic missile attack;
            (3) the United States has an obligation to meet its 
        security commitments to its allies, including ballistic 
        missile defense commitments;
            (4) the Department of Defense has a program of 
        investment and capabilities to provide for both 
        homeland defense and regional defense against ballistic 
        missiles, consistent with the Ballistic Missile Defense 
        Review of 2010 and with the prioritized and integrated 
        needs of the commanders of the combatant commands;
            (5) the European Phased Adaptive Approach to 
        missile defense is a response to the existing and 
        growing ballistic missile threat from Iran to forward 
        deployed United States forces, allies and partners in 
        Europe;
            (6) the Department of Defense--
                    (A) should, as a high priority, continue to 
                develop, test, and plan to deploy all four 
                phases of the European Phased Adaptive 
                Approach, including all variants of the 
                standard missile-3 interceptor;
                    (B) should continue to conduct tests to 
                evaluate and assess the capability of future 
                phases of the European Phased Adaptive Approach 
                and to demonstrate whether they will achieve 
                their intended roles, as outlined in the 
                Ballistic Missile Defense Review of 2010; and
                    (C) should also continue with its other 
                phased and adaptive regional missile defense 
                efforts tailored to the Middle East and the 
                Asia-Pacific region; and
            (7) European members of the North Atlantic Treaty 
        Organization are making a variety of contributions to 
        missile defense in Europe, by hosting elements of 
        missile defense systems of the United States on their 
        territories, through individual national contributions 
        to missile defense capability, and by collective 
        funding and development of the Active Layered Theater 
        Ballistic Missile Defense system; and
            (8) allies and partners of the United States in the 
        Asia-Pacific region and in the Middle East are making 
        contributions to regional missile defense capabilities, 
        including by hosting elements of missile defense 
        systems of the United States on their territories; 
        jointly developing missile defense capabilities; and 
        cooperating in regional missile defense architectures.
    (b) Report.--

            (1) An explanation of testing options for the 
        ground-based midcourse defense system if planned flight 
        tests CTV-01 and FTG-06b do not demonstrate the 
        successful correction to the problem that caused the 
        failure of the capability enhancement-2 kill vehicle in 
        flight test FTG-06a in December 2010, including 
        additional testing of the capability enhancement-1 kill 
        vehicle.
            (2) An assessment of the feasibility, advisability, 
        and cost effectiveness (including the potential 
        benefits, risks, and impact on the current test plan

SEC. 232. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON MISSILE DEFENSE.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
            (1) In a December 18, 2010, letter to the Senate 
        leadership, President Obama wrote that the North 
        Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) ``invited the 
        Russian Federation to cooperate on missile defense, 
        which could lead to adding Russian capabilities to 
        those deployed by NATO to enhance our common security 
        against common threats. The Lisbon Summit thus 
        demonstrated that the Alliance's missile defenses can 
        be strengthened by improving NATO-Russian relations. 
        This comes even as we have made it clear that the 
        system we intend to pursue with Russia will not be a 
        joint system, and it will not in any way limit United 
        States' or NATO's missile defense capabilities.''.
            (2) In a February 2, 2011, message to the Senate 
        concerning its December 22, 2010, Resolution of Advice 
        and Consent to Ratification of the New START Treaty, 
        President Obama certified that ``It is the policy of 
        the United States to continue development and 
        deployment of United States missile defense systems to 
        defend against missile threats from nations such as 
        North Korea and Iran, including qualitative and 
        quantitative improvements to such systems. As stated in 
        the Resolution, such systems include all phases of the 
        Phased Adaptive Approach to missile defense in Europe, 
        the modernization of the Ground-based Midcourse Defense 
        system, and the continued development of the two-stage 
        Ground-Based Interceptor as a technological and 
        strategic hedge.''.
            (3) In a letter dated December 13, 2011, to Senator 
        Mark Kirk, Robert Nabors, Assistant to the President 
        and Director of the Office of Legislative Affairs, 
        wrote that ``The United States remains committed to 
        implementing the European Phased Adaptive Approach to 
        missile defense, and will not agree to any constraints 
        limiting the development or deployment of United States 
        missile defenses'' and ``[w]e will not provide Russia 
        with sensitive information about our missile defense 
        systems that would in any way compromise our national 
        security. For example, hit-to-kill technology and 
        interceptor telemetry will under no circumstances be 
        provided to Russia.''.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) pursuant to section 2 of the National Missile 
        Defense Act of 1999 (Public Law 106-38; 113 Stat. 205; 
        10 U.S.C. 2431 note), it is the policy of the United 
        States ``to deploy as soon as is technologically 
        possible an effective National Missile Defense system 
        capable of defending the territory of the United States 
        against limited ballistic missile attack (whether 
        accidental, unauthorized, or deliberate)...'';
            (2) defenses against ballistic missiles are 
        essential for new deterrent strategies and for new 
        strategies should deterrence fail;
            (3) further limitations on the missile defense 
        capabilities of the United States are not in the 
        national security interest of the United States;
            (4) the New Start Treaty and the April 7, 2010, 
        unilateral statement of the Russian Federation on 
        missile defense do not limit in any way, and shall not 
        be interpreted as limiting, activities that the Federal 
        Government of the United States currently plans or that 
        might be required over the duration of the New START 
        Treaty to protect the United States pursuant to the 
        National Missile Defense Act of 1999, or to protect the 
        Armed Forces of the United States and allies of the 
        United States from limited ballistic missile attack, 
        including further planned enhancements to the Ground-
        based Midcourse Defense system and all phases of the 
        Phased Adaptive Approach to missile defense in Europe;
            (5) it was the Understanding of the Senate in its 
        December 22, 2010, Resolution of Advice and Consent to 
        Ratification of the New START Treaty that, ``any 
        additional New START Treaty limitations on the 
        deployment of missile defenses beyond those contained 
        in paragraph 3 of Article V, including any limitations 
        agreed under the auspices of the Bilateral Consultative 
        Commission, would require an amendment to the New START 
        Treaty which may enter into force for the United States 
        only with the advice and consent of the Senate, as set 
        forth in Article II, section 2, clause 2 of the 
        Constitution of the United States''; and
            (6) section 303(b) of the Arms Control and 
        Disarmament Act (22 U.S.C. 2573(b)) requires that ``no 
        action shall be taken pursuant to this or any other Act 
        that would obligate the United States to reduce or 
        limit the Armed Forces or armaments of the United 
        States in a militarily significant manner, except 
        pursuant to the treaty-making power of the President 
        set forth in Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the 
        Constitution.''.
    (c) New START Treaty Defined.--In this section, the term 
``New START Treaty'' means the Treaty between the United States 
of America and the Russian Federation on Measures for the 
Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms, 
signed on April 8, 2010, and entered into force on February 5, 
2011.

SEC. 233. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON THE SUBMITTAL TO CONGRESS OF THE 
                    HOMELAND DEFENSE HEDGING POLICY AND STRATEGY REPORT 
                    OF THE SECRETARY OF DEFENSE.

    It is the sense of the Congress that--
            (1) the homeland defense hedging policy and 
        strategy report required by section 233 of the National 
        Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Public 
        Law 112-81; 125 Stat. 1340) is necessary to inform 
        Congress on options to protect the United States 
        homeland against the evolving ballistic missile threat, 
        including potential options prior to the deployment of 
        Phase 4 of the European Phased Adaptive Approach to 
        missile defense; and
            (2) the Secretary of Defense should comply with the 
        requirements of such section 233 by submitting the 
        homeland defense hedging policy and strategy report to 
        Congress.

    It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) modeling and simulation will continue to play a 
        critical role in the training of the members of the 
        Armed Forces;
            (2) while increased modeling and simulation has 
        reduced overall costs of training of members of the 
        Armed Forces, there are still significant costs 
        associated with the human resources required to execute 
        certain training exercises where role-playing actors 
        for certain characters such as opposing forces, the 
        civilian populace, other government agencies, and non-
        governmental organizations are required;
            (3) technological advances in areas such as varying 
        levels of autonomy for systems, multi-player gaming 
        techniques, and artificial intelligence could reduce 
        the number of personnel required to support certain 
        training exercises for members of the Armed Forces, and 
        thereby reduce the overall cost of the exercises; and
            (4) the Secretary of Defense should develop a plan 
        to increase the use of emerging technologies in 
        autonomous systems, the commercial gaming sector, and 
        artificial intelligence for training exercises for 
        members of the Armed Forces to increase training 
        effectiveness and reduce costs.

                    AIRFIELDS, TRAINING AIRSPACE, AND AIR TRAINING 
                    ROUTES.

    It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) Department of Defense airfields, training 
        airspace, and air training routes are critical national 
        assets that must be protected from encroachment or 
        mission degradations to the maximum extent practicable;
            (2) placement or emplacement of obstructions near 
        or on Department of Defense airfields, training 
        airspace, or air training routes has the potential of 
        increasing risk to military aircraft and personnel as 
        well as impacting training and readiness; and
            (3) in the context of a Department of Defense 
        operational risk assessment and the Department of 
        Defense Siting Clearinghouse, the Department of Defense 
        should develop and promulgate comprehensive guidance to 
        assess the degree to which the potential encroachment 
        of a project significantly impairs or degrades the 
        capability of the Department to conduct missions or 
        maintain readiness to the extent of presenting an 
        unacceptable risk to national security with strong 
        consideration given to the input provided by the 
        military services.

    (b) Contents of Report.--The report required by subsection 
(a) shall include a description of the steps taken and planned 
to be taken--
            (1) to identify likely threats to the C4ISR systems 
        of the United States, including both weapons and those 
        states with such capabilities as well as the most 
        likely areas in which C4ISR systems could be at risk;
            (2) to identify vulnerabilities to the C4ISR 
        systems of the United States that could result in a 
        C4ISR-denied environment;
            (3) to determine how the Armed Forces should 
        respond in order to reconstitute C4ISR systems, prevent 
        further denial of C4ISR systems, and develop counter-
        attack capabilities;
            (4) to determine which types of joint operations 
        could be feasible in an environment in which access to 
        C4ISR systems is restricted or denied;
            (5) to conduct training and exercises for 
        sustaining combat and logistics operations in C4ISR-
        denied environments; and
            (6) to propose changes to current tactics, 
        techniques, and procedures to prepare to operate in an 
        environment in which C4ISR systems are degraded or 
        denied for 48-hour, 7-day, 30-day, or 60-day periods.
    (c) Joint Exercise Plan Required.--Based on the findings of 
the report required by subsection (a), the Chairman of the 
Joint Chiefs of Staff shall develop a roadmap and joint 
exercise plan for the joint force to operate in an environment 
where access to C4ISR systems, including satellite 
communications, classified Internet protocol-based networks, 
and the GPS network, is denied. The plan and joint exercise 
program shall include--
            (1) the development of alternatives to satellite 
        communications, classified Internet protocol-based 
        networks, and GPS for logistics, intelligence, 
        surveillance, reconnaissance, and combat operations; 
        and
            (2) methods to mitigate dependency on satellite 
        communications, classified Internet protocol-based 
        networks, and GPS;
            (3) methods to protect vulnerable satellite 
        communications, classified Internet protocol-based 
        networks, and GPS; and
            (4) a joint exercise and training plan to include 
        fleet battle experiments, to enable the force to 
        operate in a satellite communications, Internet 
        protocol-based network, and GPS-denied environment.

        future national security needs; and

                practices of the Federal Government that result 
                in any direct payment of authorized or

                in any expenditure of authorized or 
                appropriated funds to support the persons named 
                in subparagraph (A) and their quality of life, 
                including--
                            (i) health, disability, survivor, 
                        education, and dependent support

                between and among the various programs of the 
                Federal Government, especially as those 
                programs influence decisions of persons about 
                joining the uniformed services and of members 
                of the uniformed services about remaining in 
                the those services; and

                supporting spouses and families of members of 
                the uniformed services, so that changes in such 
                programs do not adversely impact decisions to 
                remain in the uniformed services.
            (3) Exception.--The Commission shall not examine

        throughout the Armed Forces or in the possession of 
        Department contractors.

        of defense equipment and supplies throughout their 
        lifecycle.

        the growing problem of counterfeit parts in the 
        military supply chain.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress--
            (1) to support efforts by the Department of Defense 
        to implement the Item Unique Identification Initiative;

        compliance with section 252.211-7003 (entitled ``Item 
        Identification and Valuation'') of the Defense 
        Supplement to the Federal Acquisition Regulation, on 
        Unique Identification, which states that a unique 
        identification equivalent recognized by the Department 
        is required for certain acquisitions;
            (3) to encourage the Armed Forces to adopt and 
        implement Item Unique Identification actions and 
        milestones; and
            (4) to support investment of sufficient resources 
        and continued training and leadership to enable the 
        Department to capture meaningful data and optimize the 
        benefits of the Item Unique Identification Initiative.

        under paragraph (b)(2)(B), not later than 30 days after 
        the expiration of the extension of time, and there is

capabilities (in this section referred to as a ``next-
generation system'') for the Department of Defense.
    (b) Elements of System.--It is the sense of Congress that 
any next-generation system acquired under the strategy required 
by subsection (a) should meet the following requirements:
            (1) To overcome problems and limitations in current 
        capabilities, the system should not rely on techniques 
        that--
                    (A) cannot address new or rapidly morphing 
                threats;
                    (B) consume substantial amounts of 
                communications capacity to remain current with 
                known threats and to report current status; or
                    (C) consume substantial amounts of 
                resources to store rapidly growing threat 
                libraries.
            (2) The system should provide an open architecture-
        based framework for so-called ``plug-and-play'' 
        integration of a variety of types of deployable tools, 
        including appropriate commercially available 
        applications, in addition to cyber intrusion detection 
        tools, including tools for--
                    (A) insider threat detection;
                    (B) continuous monitoring and configuration 
                management;
                    (C) remediation following infections; and
                    (D) protection techniques that do not rely 
                on detection of the attack.
            (3) The system should be designed for ease of 
        deployment to potentially millions of host devices of 
        tailored security solutions depending on need and risk, 
        and to be compatible with cloud-based, thin-client, and 
        virtualized environments as well as battlefield devices 
        and weapons systems.
    (c) Submittal to Congress.--The Chief Information Officer 
shall submit to Congress a report setting forth the strategy 
required by subsection (a) together with the budget 
justification materials of the Department of Defense submitted 
to Congress with the budget of the President for fiscal year 
2015 pursuant to section 1105(a) of title 31, United States

                        Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 401 et seq.) in 
                        a manner that affords deniability to 
                        the United States; and
                            (ii) a statement of whether the 
                        Secretary believes it is appropriate 
                        either to appoint a line officer as the
