QUESTION: where are arms/military supplies researched and manufactured in the U.S.

question / pregunta: 

We are looking for sites (locations and names) of places where arms and military supplies are researched and manufactured in the United States. The idea would be to end up with a map of "the economy of death" or "the war in your hometown" and would lay out how the economy is dependent on the war machine.

For example, entries could be Boeing HQ and/or a plant that manufactures tires for airplanes or the location of a security detail subcontractor, or something like that. We wouldn't necessarily need to be comprehensive, but could cover a selection of sites from every state in the country.


To find information on military manufacturing in the US you can consult the reference book "American manufacturers directory", which will likely be available at your local public library. There is also a CDROM that comes with the print directory which will allow you to search and download select information.

For the research piece, if you qualify as a registrant, you can search the Research Summaries Database at the DOD's Defense Technical Information Center. On the byzantine side.
