September 11, 2007, 12:00 - 1:30 PM - Hudson Institute, Washington, D.C. Headquarters
In a time of globalization of the defense industry, is the U.S. system of export controls preventing the export of critical technologies while encouraging the development of the most advanced technologies and their incorporation into U.S. military hardware and software? In a one-day conference held at Hudson Institute this past December, a group of twenty academics, journalists, and government and military officials discussed the tradeoff between safeguarding new weapons and technologies from falling into potential enemies’ hands while keeping defense trade open enough to facilitate industrial collaboration, enhance operational coordination, reap the benefits of mass production, and access the best talents and products worldwide. Their recommendations for improving the U.S. government’s export-control and technology-transfer processes were compiled in the just published report Export Controls and Technology Transfers: Turning Obstacles into Opportunities.
Hudson Institute chief executive officer Kenneth R. Weinstein introduced the event. Maria Farkas, Hudson research fellow and editor of the report, outlined the report’s major findings. Special guests Lincoln P. Bloomfield Jr. and Jeffrey P. Bialos commented on the report and the current state of affairs in the export-control arena. A question and answer session followed the event
Complimentary copies of the report were distributed at the event.
