Top defense trade associations, the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA), the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA), and the Professional Services Council (PSC) released their recommendations to modernize elements of the U.S. Foreign Military Sales (FMS) system.

The report, FMS Modernization: U.S. Industry Feedback to the Department of Defense Foreign Military Sales (FMS) Tiger Team, was first solicited by the Department of Defense’s new “tiger team” that was established in summer 2022 to modernize the process by which the United States sells military equipment to its allies and partners.

The report, compiled in fall 2022 based on the “lived, shared experience” of former U.S. government officials and industry organizations, urges swift, comprehensive changes to modernize the decades-old system for the current and future threat environment. These changes will also help to integrate our allies’ advanced technology contributions into the work of the U.S. defense industrial base.
