Skilled Indian Immigrants Create Wealth for America

Abstract:
We (this author and Elizabeth Pothen) have already published detailed reports (at indolink.com) on patents held by Indian-Americans in defense related projects and in nanotechnology. We have concluded that Indian immigrants in America account for less than 0.75% of the U.S. population but their contribution to U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) research is more than twenty times their population base. Overall our study showed that Indian American scientists are playing key roles in transforming the US military into a smarter force for the 21st century. "This is the first time that the Indian American contribution to U.S. defense-related research has been quantified. In most instances the Indian American researchers we've monitored are academic scientists, with small business enterprises of their own, and utilizing the services of younger post-doctoral fellows and graduate students, also of Indian origin, for their research efforts. Working in areas ranging from homeland security to missile technology, advanced ceramics and munitions, while at the same time linking with other university-based researchers, these scientists are forging ahead in both classified as well as unclassified research to help maintain America's superiority in military technology."
