As a retired defense industry senior executive, top-level engineer, strategist and  member of numerous US government advisory boards, author L. David Montague, member of the  National Academy of Engineering and a Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, has a proven record of successful, high-integrity defense program accomplishments.
With more than 50 years of hands-on involvement in the management, development and deployment of successful strategic systems and technology, Montague brings a critical, informed perspective to the present state of US strategic defense—and proposes a set of reasonable, achievable, and imperative measures to meet today’s strategic  deterrence need:

  • Assures a flexible, limited, effective ground-based national missile defense that fosters security, stability, and arms reduction even as nuclear weapons technology proliforates.
  • Corrects deficiencies in current systems. 
  • Offers modest additions to  effectively counter hypersonic and other emerging threats without ‘re-inventing the wheel’.
  • Denies damage of limited attack by ‘rogue nations, non-state actors, or accidental launch.
  • Proposes changes to assure competent management and oversight of system developments and operations.
  • Proposes Independent, verifiable testing protocols to ensure reliable, operational performance if called on.


Montague has  authored three books on major system organization and management issues
