BMI View: We believe that the United States defence budget will be re-orientated to take account of the threat from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). This will in our view stimulate procurement plans as the country can now focus on obtaining arms and technologies that might have previously been decided against due to austerity. The main focus of these procurements being the development of the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter program, which has been hit by another delay.

ISIS is posing a major security risk to US allies in the Middle East, following its occupation of a considerable quantity of the northern regions of Iraq and Syria during the first six months of 2014. In mid-2014, the US commenced airstrikes against ISIS ground forces in northern Iraq, code named Operation Inherent Resolve. As 2014 draws to a close there has been little word as to how effective this campaign has been and talks of further action have been considered.
