From the Executive Summary: "This report presents the results of a brief investigation to identify and assess the supply chains associated with three weapons platforms of the United States military. The purpose of the investigation was two-fold. First, the investigation was intended to determine the possibility of identifying, and obtaining access to a relatively small number of data sets that, taken as a whole, contain effectively complete information about all the components of the selected US military platforms, and the supply chain pathways they traverse on their way to final assembly. Second, if access was achieved, the investigation was intended to develop characterizations of the sources of key components of a selected subsystem of each platform, giving special attention to sources that might have the potential to reduce or restrict availability."
