Defense - Industry

Formerly composed of companies that specialized in the research, development, and production of defense weaponry and technology, the Defense Industry has become broader since the beginning of the 21st century. This sector provides governments with military capabilities across the naval, land, aerospace, and electronic systems domains, while also playing a key strategic partner for major military operations around the world. The aviation and aerospace industries are also deeply connected to the defense industry, and often represent a very large percentage of defense spending. This industry is also involved in the production of general aircraft, space vehicles, and satellites for both military and commercial use.
