  Today's Top News 
  • Lawmakers may work on overtime sequester bill
    Sequestration cuts now under way could be halted if a deal is hammered out within a 26-day window. That's because the law requires an evaluation March 27, the date by which cuts must be made. Bipartisan discussions are going on now that could lead to sequester-fix legislation, said Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich. Defense News (3/3) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  • Overseas weapons sales, partnerships are at risk with cuts
    Sequestration cuts could delay exports of U.S. weapons and are causing nervousness among U.S. allies who worry that they will affect partnerships such as the purchase of the F-35 fighter jets. Training conducted jointly with other nations is expected to take a hit, as well. The cuts "could impact not only our readiness, but, frankly, the role that we would play with regards to the readiness of NATO, as well," former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said last month.

  • Navy will implement delays, cutbacks within weeks
    The Navy within weeks will begin renegotiating contracts for submarines, defer deployments to some ships and shut down Carrier Air Wing Two. These are some of the cost-cutting moves it plans to make in response to sequestration. "These actions aren't final yet, but we've begun the process for them to take place," a Navy official said. "We're still holding out hope that sequestration will be fixed, or that Congress will pass a defense appropriations bill." Defense News (3/3) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

    Law enforcement agencies across the U.S. are finding practical uses, such as solving crimes, for unmanned aerial vehicles. "The real utility of unmanned aerial systems is not the sexy stuff.
