Abstract : The purpose of the proposed paper is to assess the impact of corporate resource allocation decisions in the US aerospace industry on long-term national security objectives. The data presented demonstrates the dissynergy that exists in one critical area of national interest as the result of inconsistencies between corporate and defense strategic resource planning objectives. The DOD Industrial Base and Preparedness Program will be evaluated as a basis for creating a credible defense industrial resource planning system to parallel existing force and technology planning systems; and, integrating corporate and defense long-range planning objectives. Based on the analysis, a recommended policy and organizational approach is presented in terms of the following parameters: acquisition efficiency and industrial preparedness.
