This new report assesses the risk that foreign countries may deny the United States technology components that are necessary for the nation's strategic military systems. The report also offers a strategy to help U.S. defense officials track foreign components in these systems.

This briefing was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on May 30, 2006 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
