About Us

 

The 24 Defense MOU Attachés Group (DMAG) member countries are all major allies and partners of the US, who participate with US forces in international operations. They all have agreements with the US, called Reciprocal Defense Procurement (RDP) Memoranda of Understanding (MOU), aimed at underpinning this cooperation.

The DMAG comprises the Washington D.C. based Defense Cooperation Attachés of the 24 member nations:

Australia

Austria

Belgium

Canada

Czech Republic

Denmark

Egypt

Finland

France

Germany

Greece

Israel

Italy

Luxembourg

Netherlands

Norway
Poland

Portugal

 

Slovenia
Spain

Sweden

Switzerland

Turkey

United Kingdom

The group attempts to identify means to improve the opportunities for Defense Procurement Cooperation with the US through practical steps, e.g. by contributing to efforts to reform the current export control system, by proactively engaging in dialogue on changes to regulations and suggestions for proposed legislation relevant to defense procurement and by seeking to improve the DoD’s ability to compete their defense equipment requirements internationally. In a nutshell, the Defense MOU Attachés Group champions international defense materiel cooperation.

Interoperability, efficient procurement strategies, and access to the latest technologies are some of the cornerstones of the US and allied efforts to transform their armed forces. Defense Materiel Cooperation offers the opportunity to get access to cutting edge technologies from allied countries just as it offers the opportunity to aid the transformation processes of allied militaries and to ensure maximum coalition capabilities in future operations.

The Defense MOU Attachés Group believes that International Defense Materiel Cooperation is good for America's defense and good for America's Industrial Base.

 

Vision

The Governments of the Defense MOU Attachés Group (DMAG) have each established longstanding cooperative arrangements with the United States Government (USG) across a broad spectrum of defense activities. The vision of DMAG, which is a wholly Washington DC-based group, is to successfully engage with the USG, the U.S. defense industry and defense trade-related stakeholder groups to facilitate common solutions to common problems related to defense equipment cooperation and defense trade with the U.S.

 

Mission

To promote effective defense equipment co-operation and defense trade between the U.S. and the Nations represented by the DMAG members; and to strengthen DMAG nations’ military warfighter capabilities.

 

Motto

Strength Through Cooperation
