DEFENSE AND NATIONAL SECURITY

DEFENSE AND NATIONAL SECURITY

Indiana is critical to the nation’s defense and security. Although many states can make this claim, very few can claim the full range of defense assets present in Indiana. By leveraging a balanced state budget, lower taxes and business-friendly regulatory environment, Indiana offers the defense and national security industry an added tactical advantage of lower costs and higher long-term profits in a state that works for business.

MILITARY PRESENCE

Indiana has a large and formidable military presence including dynamic critical duty commands at Naval Support Center Crane, vital reserve components —including Air Force Reserve’s largest KC-135R Stratotanker wing—and a distinguished state national guard that consists of 14,000 soldiers and airmen located in bases and armories in 52 counties across the state.

Indiana’s defense and national security industries are not only helping to keep America safe in the 21st century, they’re also strengthening our national economy with ground-breaking new technologies that are providing the jobs of tomorrow.
