Frost & Sullivan Hosts Webinar: Major Focus Points for Defense Spending in 2012

Frost & Sullivan Defense Analyst Will Discuss Emerging Trends and Provide Forward Projections for the U.S. Defense Spending Budget

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 14, 2011) -

WHEN: Thursday, April 21, 2011 at 1 p.m. EDT
LOCATION: Online, with free registration
SPEAKER: Brad Curran, Industry Analyst for Frost & Sullivan's Aerospace & Defense group Frost & Sullivan

The 2012 U.S. defense budget focus is on medical, logistics, unmanned vehicles, missile defense and C4ISR technologies and services. These segments offer the best combination of robust funding and market accessibility.

U.S. Defense budgets will remain stable through 2016. Expanded ground forces test and evaluation strategies will continue to support equipment acquisition and services, but expect fewer air and naval platforms. The operational borders between the Department of Defense (DoD) and other Federal Agency assets and missions will continue to blur.

This briefing will benefit component manufacturers, services providers and prime contractors by discussing emerging trends and providing forward projections for the U.S. DoD Budget including RDT&E, O&M and procurement.
