Download Report

Report Summary:

The US Department of Defense will undertake to save more than $150 billion over the next five years by reducing overhead costs, improving business practices and culling excess or troubled programs. Most of the resulting savings will be used by the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force to invest in high priority programs that strengthen warfighting capabilities. The proposed defence budget placed a priority on technology designed to counter "anti-access" weapons and will focus on funding for a new long-range nuclear bomber, electronic jamming devices for the Navy, improvements to radar for F-15 fighters, a satellite launch vehicle, an unmanned naval "strike-and-surveillance aircraft" and includes measures that could benefit UAV manufacturers.
