Foreign Military Sales & ITAR Assistance

Entering into the international military business arena created by foreign military and direct commercial sales (FMS/DCS) of defense articles and services can be a daunting and confusing experience—especially given the political uncertainty and strict government guidelines for US agencies and industries seeking to do business with a foreign country. With years of hands-on, multi-functional experience in both FMS case development and management, as well as international cooperative agreement formulation and negotiation, Dayton Aerospace personnel can guide your organization through each step of these multi-faceted processes.

In the complex world of international military business, our deep ITAR knowledge and extensive FMS and DCS experience, can mean the difference between program success and failure.

Our experts can help government and industry customers with a range of tasks, such as navigating the complex Letter of Request (LOR), Letter of Offer and Acceptance (LOA), and Foreign Military Funding (FMF) processes and procedures, and understanding the impacts of International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR) and offsets/country industrial participation. We offer solutions to important and common FMS and ITAR related questions.
