As you know, the term “war” has become extremely buzz-worthy over the past few years given the various wars in modern history.
The term war industries was coined by the US Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) during the Cold War to refer to the organization responsible for tracking and managing munitions. However, over the years this has become a very large and broad term. I’m pretty sure that when the U.S. military started tracking ammunition in the early 2000s they had a board to track it.
The Board is pretty much what it sounds like. A board of people who have either worked in the military or have a vested interest in it. They are the people who determine how much ammunition is available, how much will be needed to be kept in the war, and who gets it. The Board is the ultimate governing body for all military equipment.
Well, it is a very broad term. I guess the Board has grown so large that it is now in the job description of the Secretary of Defense (read: someone who is not a military person, but still has a real connection to military issues) and a few others. The Board is essentially the military equivalent of the U.S. Congress and the Department of Transportation (among many other places). The Board is the same way that the U.S.
Congress and Department of Transportation are part of the Department of Defense, which is a branch of the U.S. government responsible for “allocating defense equipment for use by the United States Armed Forces.” But the Board is a specialized branch of military that deals with the regulation and licensing of military equipment. The Board is responsible for a whole list of things, including but not limited to licenses for military vehicles, gunsmithing, aircraft maintenance, and the like.
It sounds like this is the same Board that issues licenses to manufacturers of weapons, explosives, and other military equipment. Apparently, it’s not quite the same Board that deals with the licensing and regulation of military vessels, though.

There is a Board for the licensing of aircraft, and a Board for the licensing of ships, both of which are government agencies that are overseen by the same government entity.
I’m not really sure what the difference is, but we’ll probably be seeing more of the latter soon.
A lot of companies are required to have a license to manufacture certain products, so the government has a license to regulate those products. But a lot of companies are exempt from the licenses. The government is also exempt from the regulation of those products. In general, the government can regulate anything but it can’t regulate the products being manufactured.
