This past July, Kevin DeSanto participated in a panel discussion at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado. Below are the questions that were asked of the panel and Kevin’s responses.

  1. What is unique about investing in the defense space versus regular technology?
  2. Do you look at requirements and threats or just profit margin when looking at a business?
  3. Are the big defense contractors still able to be innovative?
  4. Is the defense industry serving 21st century goals of American foreign policy by focusing on high-tech solutions for a low-tech threat?
  5. As DoD is moving from cost-plus contracts to more fixed-price contracts, how do you evaluate that when looking at acquisitions for a company?
  6. Is there a tension between the profit motive and actually filling a defense need?
