    What: The United States today faces a wide range of security challenges. From a rising China and revanchist Russia to the ongoing threat posed by North Korea and Iranian nuclear proliferation as well as terrorism, a crucial key to America's security continues to be technology and the innovative potential of its defense industrial base. To stay a step of ahead of competitors and prepare to fight the wars of the future, the United States must invest in its defense, even as it confronts tough questions about the fiscal constraints it faces and how much it can — or should — do.

    On November 15, Brookings will host an event to discuss innovation, the defense industrial base, budgets, and the suite of threats facing the nation with Kathy Warden, CEO of Northrop Grumman.

    Viewers can submit questions via email to events@brookings.edu or on Twitter using #FutureOfDefense.
