Discussions of the defense industrial base usually focus on U.S. companies. But U.S. companies are looking at overseas markets more and more, and overseas companies are finding ways to do business in this country. Former Deputy Secretary of Defense Bill Lynn is chief executive officer of DRS Technologies. He was Francis Rose’s guest on Pentagon Solutions. Lynn and Adm. James Stavridis are co-chairs of the Task Force on Strategy, Technology and the Global Defense Industry organized by the Center for a New American Security. Lynn explained what the task force will undertake.
Francis Rose is the host of In Depth, which airs weekdays from 4-7 p.m. on 1500 AM in the Washington, DC metro area and online everywhere. Francis has covered all three branches of the federal government as a broadcast journalist since 1998. He joined Federal News Radio in 2006, and launched In Depth in 2008 as a daily show focused on connecting federal executives to the information they need to do their jobs better.
