I am not aware of a legal definition for traditional Defense contractor. The best I can do is give you the definition of a non-traditional defense contractor. Definition of Non-traditional Defense Contractor, 10 U.S. Code § 2302(9): An entity that is not currently performing and has not performed, for at least the one-year period preceding the solicitation of sources by the Department of Defense for the procurement or transaction, any contract or subcontract for the Department of Defense that is subject to full coverage under the cost accounting standards (CAS) prescribed pursuant to section 1502 of title 41 and the regulations implementing such section.
