Abstract : The future sales of modern high technology aircraft and systems to SE Asian countries will establish an extraordinary demand on resources and funds for operational support. The countries will specify in-country assembly of aircraft and/or production of systems and items in the sales agreement. The countries are presently establishing or improving depot level repair capability. The U.S. aircraft and weapons system industry realizes that the world competitive market requires cost offset programs that enable higher technology work to be placed in the buying countries. DOD and the State Department have recognized the need to assist the SE Asian (ASEAN) countries in developing a higher technology capability through training and assistance in development of more sophisticated electronics and heavy industry. The stability of the ASEAN countries is very important and deserves every consideration. (Author)
