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.
