The Health and Readiness of the Defense Industrial Base
Please join us as Wes Hallman discusses the newly released Vital Signs report and provides key legislative and regulatory updates. Vital Signs is a comprehensive assessment of the defense industrial base (DIB) and contributes to the debate about national defense acquisition strategy by offering a common set of indicators — vital signs — of what some have called America’s “sixth service”: the industrial partners who equip our warfighters with their capability advantages.
The report features a collaborative study between NDIA Strategy & Policy and NDIA Emerging Technologies Institute (ETI) with key elements covering Covid-19, Competition, Emerging Technologies, Industrial Security, Workforce, and Survey Results. Since the report is annual, it serves as an important reference when viewing trends within the DIB and can be used by policymakers, industry professionals, and students alike.
