The Center for Innovation and Free Enterprise Affirms Taxpayer Savings Through Defense Spending

Throughout the years, American leadership has been maintained in defense systems through innovation. History shows that the military has strongly benefitted from innovative technologies, with naval and aircraft systems now better able to suit our needs. EMALS, the Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System is the next step in changing the way we look at defense spending.

Even with our unprecedented national spending, we continue to fall short to countries like China and Iran. The Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System offers the efficient, uncompromised technological advances we need to compete globally. By requiring less crewmembers due to lack of maintenance on outdated technology, EMALS updated technology can save taxpayers as much as $4 billion dollars. Taxpayer dollars should not be wasted on obsolete military vessels. EMALS will provide the necessary technological advances in our military that will propel us into the future.
