Ellis, Sandra Nichols.
MetadataShow full item record
Technology transfer and acquisition have become hotly debated and controversial policy issues. Examination of U.S. policy toward transfer of naval technology to Brazil raises questions of American national security and the validity of the Brazilian requests. Research reveals a history of dependence on the U.S. Navy and that the Brazilian naval industry also lags behind its military counterparts in domestic production, purchasing most naval equipment from abroad. This paper examines the dependence of the Brazilian Navy on foreign navies and investigates the naval industry production problems. The U.S./Brazilian relationship reveals a partnership that could be reinforced by making U.s. technology transfer policies more flexible
