C-17 Current Funding Status
C-17 FY 2012 Budget Statement
This is merely the beginning of a long budget process that we will follow with great interest as we assess the implications for Boeing and talk about the relevance of our military products in the current security environment. While we're pleased to see continued support for many of our programs, it is too early in this process to conclude what this budget will ultimately mean for Boeing.
Boeing has been anticipating flattening defense budgets for some time so, in addition to our initiatives to manage cost and increase efficiency, we have been positioning ourselves for growth by focusing on increasing international opportunities and meeting the needs of our customers, as well as moving into new markets and targeted adjacencies like cyber security, energy management, unmanned systems and support and logistics.
