    This paper examines the creation, development and current role of the European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company (EADS) in the European and global aerospace and defense sectors. It describes the political and economic context surrounding the creation of leaders by the rapid and thorough consolidation of the U.S. defense-industrial base following the end of the Cold War. The structure, operations and product line of EADS are then discussed in connection to ongoing trends in the European and global markets for defense equipment. Finally, the significance of EADS is assessed in relation to political and institutional developments within the European Union intended to promote effective cooperation in the realms of foreign policy and defense equipment procurement.
