The aerospace and defense industry in the United States is a leading contributor to the world’s safety and security, global travel, beyond earth exploration and domestic economy. The industry had its formal beginnings in America when Henry Knox, the first U.S. Secretary of War, commissioned six naval frigates for the U.S. Navy in 1794. In the following two centuries the Wright Brothers pioneered the first powered flight, U.S. aviators and aviatrixes set records in transcontinental and around the world flights and America broke the sound barrier and landed a man on the Moon.
Today, the aerospace and defense industry in the United States employs more than one million workers across all 50 states. It is also the nation’s largest net exporter and one of the biggest contributors to the annual U.S. GDP. The industry consistently “punches above its weight” and fundamentally contributes to the way Americans live, work, travel and communicate. Technological advancements in the industry have spurred innovations in jet aircraft, communications satellites, the Internet, Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and other new technologies that help save and improve the lives of Americans every day.
The strength of the aerospace and defense industry helps keep our men and women in uniform safe and successful on the battlefield, ensures that more than two million airline passengers travel safely and efficiently every day, and enables humankind to explore the frontiers of space and discover new, unimaginable and lifesaving technologies in the process.
