The formulation of a reasonable and effective export control policy for software products and software engineering know-how has been an important and difficult task for both the U.S. Government and industry. This note represents the contribution of the Software Subgroup of Technical Working Group 7 Computers to the development of a technical policy for the control of software. The note attempts to provide useful discussions and analysis in three areas. The first examines why the problem of software control has been so difficult, and presents the rationale for a number of working hypotheses which underlie the approach taken for the entire study. The second examines, in some detail, the what know-how and operational capability and how transfer mechanisms of software technology transfer. The last section recommends several items for inclusion on the Militarily Critical Technologies List.
- Economics and Cost Analysis
- Computer Programming and Software
- Computer Hardware
