                                _______
                                

    Mr. Levin, from the Committee on Armed Services, submitted the 
                               following

                              R E P O R T

                         [To accompany S. 372]

    The Committee on Armed Services, to which was referred the 
bill (S. 372) to authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2007 
for the intelligence and intelligence-related activities of the 
United States Government, the Intelligence Community Management 
Account, and the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and 
Disability System, and for other purposes, having considered 
the same, reports favorably thereon without amendment and 
recommends that the bill do pass.

                          Purpose of the Bill

    S. 372 would authorize appropriations and other matters for 
fiscal year 2007 for intelligence activities of the United 
States, including certain Department of Defense intelligence-
related activities within the jurisdiction of the Committee on 
Armed Services.
    The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence reported the 
bill on January 24, 2007, and it was referred to the Committee 
on Armed Services on January 24, 2007, in accordance with 
section 3(b) of Senate Resolution 400, 94th Congress, as 
amended by Senate Resolution 445, 108th Congress, for a period 
not to exceed 10 days of session.

                     Scope of the Committee Review

    The committee has carefully reviewed the Intelligence 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007 and the Senate report 
accompanying S. 372 (S. Rept. 110-2). The total amount within 
the jurisdiction of the Committee on Armed Services recommended 
for the National Intelligence Program has been incorporated 
into the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act for 
Fiscal Year 2007 (Public Law 109-364).
    The following explains the committee's clarification to the 
report issued by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

         CLASSIFIED AND SENSITIVE ANNEX TO THE COMMITTEE REPORT

    The committee has prepared a classified annex to this 
report that describes other recommendations and concerns that 
are classified and sensitive in nature.

                     COBRA JUDY REPLACEMENT PROGRAM

    The committee believes that the COBRA JUDY Replacement 
Program is important for ensuring our nation's ability to 
acquire necessary intelligence on foreign ballistic missile 
programs and their capabilities. The committee strongly 
supports development and integration of this sophisticated 
solid-state phased array radar technology and ship as a prudent 
investment in intelligence collection that monitors foreign 
threats and supports the acquisition of our ballistic missile 
defensive systems. The COBRA JUDY Replacement Program will 
replace the USNS Observation Island, which is due to leave 
service in 2012, and will satisfy vital intelligence 
requirements necessary for the acquisition of defensive systems 
designed to defend the nation from ballistic missile attack. 
Therefore, the committee urges the conferees on the 
Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007 to preserve 
for this important program in fiscal year 2007. The committee 
further urges the continued funding in the Future Years Defense 
Program of the COBRA JUDY Replacement Program by the Secretary 
of Defense and the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) in 
order to support national defense requirements.

                              SPACE RADAR

    The committee notes that the DNI is conducting a study to 
determine future collections architectures. One of the elements 
of the study is a space radar capability. The committee firmly 
believes that only one space radar capability is affordable in 
the future and urges the DNI and the Secretary of Defense to 
develop a joint space radar program if there is a requirement 
for such a capability.
    The committee, notwithstanding any other direction, 
strongly encourages the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence 
to direct the DNI to participate in the study required in the 
statement of managers (H. Rept 109-702) accompanying the John 
Warner National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007 
(Public Law 109-364). DNI participation is required to 
determine respective roles and missions of the military and 
intelligence communities in the development of a space radar 
program, including requirements, cost-sharing, acquisition 
strategy, and operational concepts. The committee also believes 
that for the DNI not to participate in a joint study to 
understand space radar requirements, guided by the collections 
architecture, would be a mistake that could result in a 
significant waste of taxpayer dollars.

                            Committee Action

    In accordance with the Legislative Reorganization Act of 
1946, as amended by the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970, 
the committee's vote to report the Intelligence Authorization 
Act for Fiscal Year 2007 was by voice vote.

                              Fiscal Data

    The committee will publish in the Congressional Record 
information on 5-year cost projections when such information is 
received from the Congressional Budget Office.

                           Regulatory Impact

    Paragraph 11(b) of rule XXVI of the Standing Rules of the 
Senate requires that a report on the regulatory impact of a 
bill be included in the report on the bill. The committee finds 
that there is no regulatory impact in the cost of S. 372, the 
Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007.

                        Changes in Existing Law

    Pursuant to the provisions of paragraph 12 of rule XXVI of 
the Standing Rules of the Senate, the changes in existing law 
made by certain portions of the bill have not been shown in 
this section of the report because, in the opinion of the 
committee, it is necessary to dispense with showing such 
changes in order to expedite the business of the Senate and 
reduce the expenditure of funds.
