    AWST does not make it a practice of disclosing its sources as they believe 
    they are 'the allmighty'. But you are right probably right in that they go 
    directly to the industry and the military and hence publish the data that - 
    as well all know - is not always quite correct.
    What data are you looking for? I might be able to help you.
