Major Defense Acquisition Programs
The Pentagonís 2009 Budget Request Summary Justification provides a wishlist for $184 billion worth of "Major Weapons Systems." The "highest profile" of these programs, i.e., the most expensive ones are "designated as Major Defense Acquisition Programs (MDAP)." General Atomics is one of nine "Secure Canada 2008" exhibitors that are involved in one or more these top MDAPs. For details, see "The Role of 'Secure Canada 2008' Exhibitors in America's MDAPs."
