Rapidly developing platforms combined with military spending cuts, reductions in new weapons programs, and a shift from reliance on government contractors to technology firms are just some of the challenges aerospace and defense firms face today. Although global defense revenues are rebounding as governments respond to heightened security threats, new approaches are needed for companies to grow profitably while cutting costs. Successful strategies include restructuring, partnering with technology firms to build innovative combat devices based on proven designs, and focusing on cyber defense, among others.
