I have been afforded the opportunity to chair that panel. The panel has been directed to examine the present state of the transfer of U.S. technology to foreign nations, and particularly the di~`ect or indirect transfer of such technology to the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact nations. ' The panel will attempt to identify those technologies that, if compromised, would have a significant impact on U.S. national security. It will evaluate the process by which such technology is transferred. And?i}~.will assess the procedures used by the Departments of Commerce, Defease and"State to ensure against the compromise of technology and defense articles that significantly impact on U.S. defense. capabilities. ~ . The panel will require the assistance of your organization in completing our task. Z am writing to reQuest that assistance Although ahearing - schedule has not yet been determined, it is likely that we will. ask for a witness from your organization to testify before the panel.. I would appreciate knowing who in your organization would be most appropriate as a witness given the tasking we face. In addition a point of contact within your organization that can assist the panel staff in coordinating activities a `n gathering information would be most helpful. The name of the mess and t point.. of -contact can be relayed to Bob Emmerichs (225-6873) ocr Alan Chase t~'L25-9b47) ,.~ ..s,.. ____~ _~_tt r I consider the issue the panel is addressing to .be of extraordinary importance to our future security.
