CHALLENGES

Growing Global Defense Investment

An unprecedented period of defense modernization is occurring based on the growing global climate of instability. Countries around the globe are significantly investing in the development of more capable and more sustainable weapons systems to meet perceived threats and support a more modern defense force. This investment growth is expected to last through to 2024 and potentially beyond based on current budget projections.

“A bow wave of [weapons] modernization is coming, the likes of which we have not seen in many years.”

Representative Robert Whitman
Chairman of the U.S. House Armed Services Committee, Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee

Driving Down Costs and Ensuring Greater Accountability

Defense budgets are on the rise again, but concerns remain about the structural overhead and inefficiencies. Defense companies look to improve upon their traditional bespoke development model. Typically this development approach carries high-cost structures (to carry the burden of cutting-edge development and compliance requirements), long development cycles and a limited ability to invest ahead of the market. Defense contractors must manage programs across the entire supply chain and improve on-time and on-cost delivery.

“We want greater transparency and we want to see a reduction in the cost of products we’re buying.”

Shay D. Assad
Director of Defense Pricing, United States Department of Defense

Integrating Cutting-Edge Technologies

Defense contractors around the globe are incorporating advanced technologies into new weapon systems to achieve significantly greater effectiveness and versatility in manned and unmanned systems. Growing confidence in artificial intelligence, advanced analytics, new materials and advanced production methods will continue to improve system performance while driving down costs. Defense contractors must integrate these new capabilities to deliver against modern warfighter requirements.
