The Council’s Aerospace and Defense Executive Committee promotes connections among business, government, and thought leaders in order to expand U.S.-India cooperation in Aerospace, Defense, Homeland and Cyber Security, and Civil Aviation. As a prominent platform and unique conduit for information and analysis, the committee offers a clear and informed voice on defense trade policy issues such as technology release and transfer, acquisition and procurement, offsets and industrial partnership, co-production and co-development opportunities. We promote streamlined FMS/DCS/Hybrid sales and acquisitions procedures, assist our members in navigating through these processes, and match American and Indian private sector entities to promote new business partnerships.
