As Aerospace and Defense contractors wrestle with market conditions from sequestration to war drawdowns, industry consolidation becomes an inevitable consequence along each link in the supply chain. The Contractor Logistics Support (CLS) market holds strategic importance for both Defense customers and contractors, representing almost $27 billion.

Using the recent Lockheed Martin acquisition of Sikorsky, this case study uses Big Data and Analytics to explore the CLS market dynamics including:

  • The ability to quantify this market and a view of the budget accounts funding CLS
  • The footprint contractors have within each department and potential steps to secure that positions
  • How a platform acquisition bolsters a Systems Integrator to dominate the supply chain
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
