Abstract : The Joint Staff Director of Logistics (J-4) sponsored an Industrial College of the Armed Forces (ICAF) project to identify policy options to strengthen the nation's industrial base. To answer the tasking, a two phased approach was taken. First, the recommendations of the past five years of the ICAF Defense Industry Study (DIS) Program were examined. In this program, ICAF students conducted field studies at domestic and foreign locations to assess the strengths and weaknesses in the defense industrial base. Second, executives in several trade associations were interviewed and asked, What policy options should the nation pursue to strengthen the industrial base?
