Abstract Military Acquisition can be defined as to manage a nation's investments in technologies, programs, and product support necessary to achieve its National Security Strategy and support its Armed Forces. In today's increasingly complex acquisition environment, program managers are faced with the challenge of deftly commanding the skilled resources necessary to run successful programs. In that context, the main objective of military acquisition is to rapidly acquire quality products that satisfy military needs with measurable improvements to mission capability at a fair and reasonable price. Military acquisition makes people consider the product or service for all of its life-cycle. This is a long and complex process. During this process, a lot of criteria must be taken into account, a lot of different perspectives have to be considered and a lot of decisions have to be taken. Because of these reasons, decision support methodologies and tools will play an important role in military acquisition. Decision support activities related to military acquisition can range from identification of needs to the maintaining of the equipment used in the field. In this study, we survey the literature related to decision support method and methodologies that can be used in acquisition of military equipment.
