Title How to build and enhance America's defense franchises / John G. Ferrari and Charles Rahr
Published [Washington, DC] : American Enterprise Institute, 2023


Description 1 online resource (10 pages)
Summary While some weapons systems possess the marks of a franchise, more American military platforms should become franchise products, exported to the countries of the free world and providing a steady stream of revenue for America’s defense industrial base. Pouring time, effort, and funds into new systems makes little sense when the US has best-in-the-world platforms that, when enhanced with existing commercial technologies, can form their own spin-off franchises. More American military hardware purchased abroad translates into more spare parts for America’s equipment, greater interoperability between allied systems, exportable training, and additional profits for reinvestment into two-year upgrade cycles
