Abstract : This paper investigates the role and impact of performance requirements on defense trade. Four aspects were considered: the definition and incidence of performance requirements; an automotive industry case study to measure the impact of performance requirements; an electronics industry case study to determine the relevance of performance requirements to defense electronics and to draw inferences for the relevance to defense trade generally; and the President's 1982 initiative on NATO co-production as a possible partial solution to performance requirements.
