Wharton's Perspective On The Aerospace And Defense Industry
Although a majority of the leading defense companies are enjoying record growth and profitability, the changing nature of warfare is having a transformative impact on the industry. As governments deploy fewer arsenals of traditional weapons, they are moving toward highly evolved, integrated systems that promote rapid deployment and extreme precision. In response to ramped up demands for innovative weaponry systems, defense companies are required to become more flexible and agile. This shift is dramatically changing the way A&D companies serve their customers, collaborate with their partners, and take ideas and solutions to market.
