Speaker: Chris Brodersen, Director, Technology Release

Raytheon International, Inc.
NAITA and Presenting Sponsor Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP invite aerospace/defense technology companies to participate in the next Trade Compliance Roundtable
discussion covering the key players and processes involved in Technology Transfer, Releasability, and International Programs Security. The process of obtaining
releasability to transfer defense technology to foreign entities requires coordination among different U.S. government entities – including DOD, the military departments, the State Department, and the intelligence community – which have varying perspectives. Adding to this complexity, determinations of releasability are governed by broad guidance, which allows latitude in interpreting the unique circumstances of each proposed transfer. In determining the releasability of advanced weapons, technologies, and components, a number of factors are considered, including how U.S. technological advantage would be affected. Questions related to this topic are encouraged in advance and can be sent firstname.lastname@example.org.
, Director, Technology Release, Army & Missile Defense Systems, Raytheon Inter
national, Inc., will discuss the complex issues involved in obtaining releasability from the U.S. Government to transfer advanced defense technology to foreign entities. Mr. Brodersen coordinates technology release from the Raytheon International Inc. office in Arlington, Virginia. He works closely with U.S. Government technology security and foreign disclosure personnel in the U.S. Army, Missile Defense Agency, Defense Technology Security Administration, and other U.S. Government entities, in order to insure that Raytheon can effectively execute in the international environment.
