Abstract:

The industry studies program is part of the Colleges continuing commitment to keep in touch with industry a charge made by Bernard Baruch at its founding almost 75 years ago. The following chapters provide an assessment of the condition and outlook of 18 industry sectors considered vital to the nations security. While the senior civilian and military student authors are not experts in each industrial sector, they do bring a wealth of practitioner and professional knowledge to their studies including technical, operational, acquisition and logistics support experience. Industry field studies were carried out both domestically and internationally to allow our students to conduct in-depth examinations of selected industrial sectors to assess each sectors ability to support the national security strategy within a global context. The resulting reports organized here as chapters are offered as part of the continuing public policy debate over the health and future of the defense industrial base in particular and the total industrial and productive base in general. Additionally this book is published in an effort to maintain an open dialogue with the many companies and agencies we visit worldwide.
