The Role of "Secure
Canada 2008" Exhibitors in
America's Major Defense Acquisition Programs
The Pentagonís 2009 Budget Request Summary Justification. Of particular interest is the 65-page section in this document summarizing DoD's request for the $184 billion it wants for "Major Weapons Systems."
The "highest profile" of these programs, i.e., the most expensive of these Major Weapons Systems are "designated as Major Defense Acquisition Programs (MDAP)."
Among the 42 known exhibitors planning to show their stuff at "Secure
Canada 2008" there are at least nine companies that are involved in one or more
these top MDAPs:
Boeing, CAE, Elbit Systems, General Atomics, General Dynamics Canada, Green Hill Systems, M/A-COM Tyco Electronics, Meggitt, and Sun Microsystems.
In fact, only five of the Top 25 MDAPs do not seem to have any participation by the exhibitors that we know are planning to attend "Secure Canada 2008." For details, see "The Role of 'Secure Canada 2008' Exhibitors in America's MDAPs."
