Abstract:

This morning I would like to give you a broad overview of how we are going about preserving our critical legacy of technological superiority in defense aviation. I will do so by speaking first about how we are adjusting our buying practices to leverage commercial products, processes and technology second, about our preparations to launch a major new review of defense strategy and third, about our existing modernization plans for heavy bomber, air mobility and tactical aviation forces.
