Join GDIC and Strengthen
the US Defense Community
Uniting defense and industry coalitions globally to spur innovation and
advocate for those providing critical resources to the US warfighter
Global Defense & Industry Coalition
Inspired by the late Senator McCain, GDIC is a coalition of regional organizations comprising of defense and mining industries, military installations, veterans and more. Our collective mission is to promote transparency and collaboration between the defense community and Congress to foster innovation and advocate for those providing critical resources to the US warfighter.
Today’s Defense Landscape
Constrained Supply Chain
Growing dependence on Russia and China for critical minerals and processing has put a significant strain on US industries’ ability to produce the assets necessary to maintain our national, economic, and environmental security.
Confusing processes, legacy contracts, and high barriers of entry are disincentivizing new and innovative companies from entering the defense market, leading to a lack of modernization in public sector technologies and assets.
Strapped by red tape, budgets, and competing interests, military installations struggle to communicate their specific needs to Congress their needs, leaving installation assets underutilized and military programs vulnerable.
Like many industries, the defense sector is experiencing a labor shortage and is in dire need of new talent. If left unaddressed, industry will simply be unable to keep up with demand and our national security will suffer.
Together We Can Make a Difference
GDIC unites coalitions from across the country to identify and address the top issues threatening US national Security
GDIC brings together defense and mining industries, environmental groups, and green technology leaders to identify current supply chain shortfalls and advocate for mechanisms to produce and process critical resources at home.
Through education, advocacy, and transparency, GDIC creates opportunities for SMBs to have a voice within the public sector, providing innovative solutions to the US military and allied nations.
Assets Retention & Expansion
Serving as liaison between military installations and Congress, GDIC partners with regional advocacy groups to preserve critical military assets and advocates for the resources necessary to ensure these missions remain successful.
