New technologies and new perspectives

Military industries remains a motor sector where the share of research and development expenditures is decisive. At the beginning of the 1990s, the United States worked nearly 15 p. 100 of the defence budget, or about 43 billion dollars, against 10 per 100 in France. Since the end of the 1970s, Western countries increase their investment in the field of research and development. The fact is that high technologies, in their more refined and the newer approach, are initially reserved for the military or scientific before be extended to the civilian sector. Satellite tracking system, for example, so was largely focused on military imperatives before being partially opened to the civilian environment.
