Northrop Grumman CEO: We are risking our technological advantage in the world

Wes Bush, the president and CEO of Northrop Grumman, said at the CNAS conference that, in his view, the United States is risking its technological advantage over the rest of the world. "Our national strategy rests on technological superiority," he said. And at the current rate of investment, he said, "that's not sustainable."

He added that he thinks Americans don't understand the rate at which the rest of the world is advancing technologically. The pace, he said, is "absolutely extraordinary."

For his company, he said, the key question is human capacity -- keeping and attracting new talent.
