Vital Signs 2021

The Health and Readiness of the Defense Industrial Base

2021 Report Coming Soon

In early 2021, the National Defense Industrial Association's second annual Vital Signs report will be released. As a follow-on to the inaugural Vital Signs 2020, the upcoming report will deliver another comprehensive assessment of the defense industrial base and contribute to the debate about national defense acquisition strategy by offering a common set of indicators—vital signs—of what some have called America’s “sixth service,” the industrial partners who equip our warfighters with their capability advantages. 


More information is forthcoming.
