Abstract:

A substantial transfer of U.S. scientific and technical information has contributed significantly to the military potential of adversary countries. and may prove detrimental to the security of the United States. The Department of Defense has established policy and procedures to prevent further undesirable transfer of production, engineering, logistical, scientific, and technical information. The intent of the new procedures is to stem the flow of military- related technical data to U.S. adversaries without stifling technological growth, blocking the exchange of technical data that is vital to progress and innovation in the U.S., or reducing the competitiveness of U.S. industry in world markets. Properly applied, the new procedures will permit technical data to flow to government agencies and private entities that have a legitimate need.
