Welcome to the first of our regular bi-monthly summaries for the month of May 2021 of recent Congressional Research Service (CRS) reports and primers on a range of defense-, weapon system-, acquisition-, pandemic-, and supply chain management-related topics. Several recent issuances of potential interest to the defense acquisition workforce include:

  • Marine Corps Advanced Reconnaissance Vehicle (ARV), May 13, 2021
  • Navy Columbia (SSBN-826) Class Ballistic Missile Submarine Program: Background and Issues for Congress, May 12, 2021
  • Navy Next-Generation Attack Submarine (SSN[X]) Program: Background and Issues for Congress, May 10, 2021
  • Deep Fakes and National Security, May 07, 2021

As always, a quick reminder: The CRS “…serves as nonpartisan shared staff to congressional committees and Members of Congress. It operates solely at the behest of and under the direction of Congress. Information in a CRS Report should not be relied upon for purposes other than public understanding of information that has been provided by CRS to Members of Congress in connection with CRS’s institutional role.
