Abstract:

The defense industrial base is the foundation of national military power. From pre-Revolutionary times to now, Americas defense industry either mobilized or surged to provide the weapons of war. When the Cold War ended, the world and our military strategy changed. Information Age warfare and Joint Vision 2010 military forces are the future. To support these forces, the Pentagons strategy is to rely upon acquisition reform, dual-use technology, and privatization for production of future weapon systems and services. This paper examines the defense industrial base to determine whether or not it is postured to support Joint Vision 2010 forces.
