Anticipating and encouraging the U.S. Navy's takeover of the Non-Line of Sight Launch System (NLOS-LS) program, the House Armed Services air and land forces subcommittee transfers $75 million in research and development funding for the program from the Army to the Navy in its markup of the defense authorization bill for 2011, according to congressional documents.
Citing the Army's decision to cancel NLOS-LS, the subcommittee cuts the $350.6 million the Army requested for procurement of NLOS-LS in 2011 and the $81.2 million in research and development funds.
While the House Armed Services air and land forces subcommittee fully funds the U.S. Army's Ground Combat Vehicle (GCV) program in its markup of the 2011 defense authorization bill, it is concerned about the vehicle's requirements, which it sees as "extremely ambitious" in some areas, according to congressional documents.
The subcommittee provides the $934.4 million requested by the Army to fund research and development for the new vehicle in 2011.

Not quite sure why the Navy wants the NLOS, I thought they were going full bore on shipboard railguns?
