The Department of Defense DOD is under increasing pressure to purchase defense systems and subsystems which have been developed abroad. There are many unique issues to be considered before making a decision to purchase a foreign developed defense system subsytem. The Congress and GAO have become increasingly critical of DoDs efforts in this area. In this thesis, a conceptual model focusing on four major issue areas, Y1 Change in NATO Defense Capability, Y2 Real U. S. Costs, Y3 Economic Effects, and Y4 Political Beneficts, is developed to assist DOD personnel in considering, for acquisition, foreign developed systems and subsystems. Author
