Guardian Six in Action

Guardian Six Consulting completed an in-depth analysis of vulnerabilities to selected nodes of the U.S. defense industrial base in partnership with the Alliance for American Manufacturing. The report focused in particular on the risk associated with offshoring critical U.S. defense supply chains. “Remaking American Security” was a call to action to ensure that the United States has the defense industrial base that it needs to meet any future threat.

Guardian Six Consulting is assisting JSR Micro to meet the critical energy challenges faced by the Department of Defense. The deployment of new energy-efficient technologies will provide the warfighter with more capability at a lower cost.
