Coproduction is a program wherein the United States enables an eligible country or international organization to acquire the expertise to manufacture, assemble, repair, and maintain a specific weapon, support system, or individual military item. It might be limited to the assembly of a few end items, with small input of local country parts, or it might be extended to a major manufacturing effort requiring the buildup of capital industries.
