Business is booming and will continue to do so for the sale of missile defenses abroad, says U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Gino Dellarocco, program executive officer for missiles and space. Foreign military sales are expected to nearly double in Fiscal 2009 with an expected sale of $12.8 billion through the foreign military sales program. There is going to be an “economic boost in this sector,” Dellarocco predicts. A heavy contributor to this trend is the United Arab Emirates. The country has already bought a smattering of missile defenses.
