Export Control Law and Regulations Handbook

Author: Yann Aubin
Publisher: Kluwer Law International
ISBN: 9789041135292
Release Date: 2011
Genre: Business & Economics

Export control laws and regulations are the legal framework for countries around the globe to ensure world peace and stability and their importance in international trade is growing. The reasons behind this growth lie in the evolution of technology, the fact that increasing amounts of goods/services are subject to controls (such goods/services representing a very large segment of world trade), and the increasing threat linked to terrorism. Consequently, export control laws and regulations have become extremely important for those involved in the international trade of goods/services with a direct or even indirect military use. Export control laws and regulations are complex, difficult to understand, and constantly evolving. Infringements can lead to very serious sanctions (civil, administrative, or criminal), and, not to be minimized, the risk of serious damage to the corporate image of one or more parties to a questionable transaction. Yann Aubin and Arnault Idiart are involved in such issues on a day-to-day basis in their respective capacities as lawyer and export compliance officer within the European Aeronautics Defence and Space Company (EADS). They have gathered contributions from expert practitioners (EADS and Thales as well as Hogan and Hartson LLP) and university scholars (Paris 11 Law School/Institute of Space and Telecommunications Law (IDEST) faculty and advanced students) to make the Export Control Handbook as useful as possible. The Export Control Handbook provides a practical examination of the export/import control regimes of defense and dual use goods and services of a number of selected jurisdictions around the world (China; European Union; France; Germany; India; Italy; Japan; Russian Federation; Spain; United Kingdom; United States). The Handbook contains a very useful appendix including, among other things, compliance procedures and standard country-specific application (or related) forms. The aim of each country-specific chapter of the Handbook is to provide actionable information designed to guide foreign entities wishing to undertake production in the jurisdiction (e.g., through a local subcontractor or a local subsidiary (which could be a joint venture) in order to subsequently export that product anywhere in the world. The Export Control Handbook is invaluable to any international trade professional (lawyer, compliance officer, etc.) or entity with a need to know the specific requirements to be followed in the jurisdiction in question for the efficient and legally compliant import or export of controlled military or dual-use goods or services.

China in Space

Author: Brian Harvey
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781461450436
Release Date: 2013-03-27
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Rockets were invented in China, the home of many modern inventions, including ancient astronomy, and were used originally for military purposes in the 13th century. The Chinese space program was founded in October 1956 by the father of Chinese rocketry, Tsien Hsue Shen, who lived in California in the 1930s until his expulsion as a Chinese spy. In recent times there have been three manned spaceflights, highlighting China’s ambitious space program and generating worldwide interest. Future missions are planned, including a mission to go to Mars. The explosive growth of China’s innovative and rapidly developing space program in recent years has made it a "hot" topic in international space policy. This follow up to Harvey's earlier book, China's Space Program - From Conception To Manned Spaceflight (2004) bring us up to date with everything that is happening in the Chinese space program today and looks at its ambitious future. The author briefly summarizes how this program evolved from medieval times, and uncovers the truth behind the bland, unreliable, and generally uninformative news releases issued around each space mission. It also examines the key features of the program, previously unknown to the outside world.

Space Science and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations

Author: Space Studies Board
Publisher: National Academies Press
ISBN: 9780309116091
Release Date: 2008-02-04
Genre: Political Science

ITAR, which controls defense trade, includes the U.S. Munitions List (USML) which specifies categories of defense articles and services covered by the regulations. In 1999, space satellites were added to the USML. In 2002 ITAR was amended to exclude U.S. universities from having to obtain ITAR licenses when performing fundamental research involving foreign countries and/or persons. Despite this provision, there remains considerable uncertainty among university researchers about whether the regulations apply to their research leading to a rather conservative interpretation of the regulations and the imposition of burdens that might not be necessary. To explore this concern, NASA asked the NRC to organize a workshop of all stakeholders on the implications of ITAR for space science. This book presents a summary of the workshop discussions including those on perspectives on recent developments and implementation of ITAR; overarching issues; problems arising from ITAR's implementation; and opportunities for near-term actions and improvements.

The increasing consolidation of the defense aerospace industry, brought about by post-Cold War reductions in defense authorizations, has led to the proliferation of cross-border relationships between U.S. and European firms. This report examines aerospace industry globalization trends with a view toward determining how the U.S. Air Force can best exploit such trends while minimizing their risks. It concludes that further research must be done to ascertain how the advantages of globalization, such as increased competition and interoperability, can best be achieved without compromising security concerns.

Materials Needs and Research and Development Strategy for Future Military Aerospace Propulsion Systems

Author: Committee on Materials Needs and R&D Strategy for Future Military Aerospace Propulsion Systems
Publisher: National Academies Press
ISBN: 9780309212113
Release Date: 2011-06-20
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The ongoing development of military aerospace platforms requires continuous technology advances in order to provide the nation's war fighters with the desired advantage. Significant advances in the performance and efficiency of jet and rocket propulsion systems are strongly dependent on the development of lighter more durable high-temperature materials. Materials development has been significantly reduced in the United States since the early 1990s, when the Department of Defense (DOD), the military services, and industry had very active materials development activities to underpin the development of new propulsion systems. This resulted in significant improvements in all engine characteristics and established the United States in global propulsion technology. Many of the significant advances in aircraft and rocket propulsion have been enabled by improved materials and, materials manufacturing processes. To improve efficiency further, engine weight must be reduced while preserving thrust. Materials Needs and Research and Development Strategy for Future Military Aerospace Propulsion Systems examines whether current and planned U.S. efforts are sufficient to meet U.S. military needs while keeping the U.S. on the leading edge of propulsion technology. This report considers mechanisms for the timely insertion of materials in propulsion systems and how these mechanisms might be improved, and describes the general elements of research and development strategies to develop materials for future military aerospace propulsion systems. The conclusions and recommendations asserted in this report will enhance the efficiency, level of effort, and impact of DOD materials development activities.

Genre: Science

Research universities are critical contributors to our national research enterprise. They are the principal source of a world-class labor force and fundamental discoveries that enhance our lives and the lives of others around the world. These institutions help to create an educated citizenry capable of making informed and crucial choices as participants in a democratic society. However many are concerned that the unintended cumulative effect of federal regulations undercuts the productivity of the research enterprise and diminishes the return on the federal investment in research. Optimizing the Nation's Investment in Academic Research reviews the regulatory framework as it currently exists, considers specific regulations that have placed undue and often unanticipated burdens on the research enterprise, and reassesses the process by which these regulations are created, reviewed, and retired. This review is critical to strengthen the partnership between the federal government and research institutions, to maximize the creation of new knowledge and products, to provide for the effective training and education of the next generation of scholars and workers, and to optimize the return on the federal investment in research for the benefit of the American people.
