  3. Are the big defense contractors still able to be innovative?
  4. Is the defense industry serving 21st century goals of American foreign policy by focusing on high-tech solutions for a low-tech threat?
  5. As DoD is moving from cost-plus contracts to more fixed-price contracts, how do you evaluate that when looking at acquisitions for a company?
