A defense contractor is a business organization or individual that provides products or services to a dense department of a government. Products typically include military aircraft, ships, vehicles, weaponry, and electronic system. Services can include logistics, technical support, and training and communications support [1].

Defense contractors generally do not provide direct support of military operations. Under 1949 Geneva Conventions defense contractors engaged in direct support of military operations may be legitimate targets of military attack.
