The Industrial Base is the key to preserving and extending U.S. competitive military dominance in the coming century. Its deterrence keeps Americans safe and keeps the peace.

- As well as the more conventional technologies that make up our legacy defense equipment
The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated the hazards of relying on other, especially adversarial, nations for critical materials and medical equipment. The pandemic also demonstrated that federal resources and direction, combined with the private sector’s unique manufacturing and industrial ingenuity, can respond to a national crisis. This is especially true when the objectives are well-defined and funds effectively deployed.
