Aviation Week and Space Technology on May 5th 1986 that the technology transfer programme being planned to assist industry in obtaining unclassified SDI-related technology is available only to United States "entities".

If the US Government are planning a programme of the kind suggested by the noble Lord, that is for them; and it would be entirely natural for the programme to be confined to US entities. In the UK, a body known as Defence Technology Enterprises Limited (DTE) was set up last autumn to assist with the commercial exploitations of defence research across the board.
