Who We Are

U.S. Department of State, Harry S Truman building, C Street Entrance   U.S. Department of Defense

The Office of Regional Security and Arms Transfers (RSAT) advances U.S. foreign policy and national security interests through its management of bilateral/ multi-lateral political-military and regional security relations and the sale/transfer of U.S.-origin defense articles and services to foreign governments. PM/RSAT is the Department of State’s principal entry point for bilateral and regional political-military questions from the U.S. Government interagency and foreign governments. It is also a key link between the Departments of State and Defense, interfacing with the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Joint Staff, and the Combatant Commands on regional security issues.

PM/RSAT is led by Office Director Mike Miller. The office consists of three teams: the Regional Security Teams, the Third Party Transfers Team, and the Foreign Military Sales Team.
