The Department of Defense’s priorities for the next five years call for protected and prioritized investments in weapon technology and new capabilities.

Curated by Motif Investing


The US Department of Defense has its marching orders: maintain the capability and capacity to deal with contingencies across the globe while “Making Every Defense Dollar Count”. A key to achieving both objectives is a shift toward evolutionary technology in weapons. Unmanned drones can put eyes in the sky around the world, which will help mitigate the near 100,000-troop reduction planned by 2017. Advanced fighter planes like the F-22 Raptor and the Joint Strike Fighter represent the next generation of air superiority. Plus, smart bombs provide long-range precision strike capabilities.

While growth in military spending is likely to decline, spending on advanced weapons systems could continue to increase.
