Abstract
We have continued our research into the global defense industrial base''and its increasingly complex nature. Our aim has been to understand defense industrial developments, place those developments in context, and find explanatory paradigms suitable for better explanation of ongoing trends. It is also our hope to provide insights useful for better management of the defense''industrial partnership, and for improving acquisition management practices. In this report, we consider the ongoing travails of the KC-X program, the C-27, and the rise of unmanned aerial combat systems (UAVs).
