Defense Trade Advisory Group

May 25, 2016

M3 Technology is happy to announce the appointment of its Vice President of Operations, Michael Caton to the Defense Trade Advisory Group for its 2016-2018 term.

The DTAG, established as a continuing committee under the authority of 22 U.S.C. 2656 and the Federal Advisory Committee Act, provides the Bureau of Political-Military Affairs with a formal channel for regular consultation and coordination with U.S. private sector defense exporters and defense trade specialists on issues involving U.S. laws, policies, and regulations for munitions exports. The DTAG advises the Bureau on its support for and regulation of defense trade to help ensure that impediments to legitimate exports are reduced while the foreign policy and national security interests of the U.S. continue to be protected and advanced in accordance with the Arms Export Control Act, as amended.

Members are appointed by the Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs on the basis of individual substantive and technical expertise and qualifications, and are drawn from a representative cross-section of U.S. defense industry, association, academic, and foundation personnel, including appropriate technical and military experts.

This appointment reflects M3 Technology’s experience and expertise in Global Trade Management, and its commitment to US Export Control Regulations.  Since its founding in 1998, M3 Technology has supported US and Allied operations around the world, including mission-critical supply chain activities in Iraq and Afghanistan during Operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom, and other National Security missions.  Involvement with the DTAG will enable M3 Technology to lend its voice toward policy and decision making activities within the State Department.
