According to a report released this week, the U.S. military and its main suppliers must globalize and adopt more commercial practices to stay competitive. U.S. military spending is falling, but China, India and other countries are spending more and making strides in development of satellites and other advanced technologies.

The report also said the U.S. weapons industry moves too slowly to adjust to current trends.
