Requirements to cooperate internationally in defense matters are highlighted in the globalization of technology and in ongoing forecasts that many future military operations will be conducted with coalitions of cooperating forces. These conditions mandate that the Services and other DoD agencies use the best available technologies for system procurement and upgrade. They also point out multiple benefits of procuring best technologies across the world, especially when this can be accomplished with coalition partners. This document provides a consolidated statement of selected Army acquisition principals designed to accommodate these future conditions. It also presents a rank-ordered selection of screened and validated opportunities available from foreign entities. These opportunities have been nominated from both foreign and U.S. sources, and have had their suitability validated by technical experts qualified in the areas nominated. Technologies are representative, but not exhaustive. Others are possible. The document does provide program officers and other officials with sufficient materials to consider which areas are suitable for cooperation, and contact points for officials knowledgeable in each technology identified.
