Abstract
The Department of Defense (DOD) is under increasing pressure to purchase defense systems and subsystems which, have been developed abroad. There are many unique issues to be considered before making a decision to purchase a foreign developed defense system (subsystem). The Congress and GAO have become increasingly critical of DOD's efforts in this area. In this thesis, a conceptual model focusing on four major issue areas, Y₁ : Changes in NATO Defense Capability, Y₂ : Real II. S. Costs, Y₃: Economic Effects, and Y₄: Political Benefits, is developed to assist DOD personnel in considering, for acquisition, foreign developed systems and subsystems.
