This chapter extends the discussion into the area of security, which was thrust onto the policy and innovation system debate agenda in the wake of 9/11. It compares key features of the US and Japanese national innovation systems, and the respective roles of defence. Defence has played a relatively minor role in Japan's innovation system, but like civilian industry in the 1990s, Japan's defence industry failed to adapt to a dramatically changed (post Cold War) environment in the 1990s. In the new century, however, anzen-anshin (safety and security/peace of mind) concerns have the potential to influence both. The trajectory of influence is still fluid, but preference is given for a civilian-oriented security techno-system.

Keywords:   security, anzen-anshin, defence, national innovation system, Japan-US comparison, techno-systems
