Mr Parrikar is scheduled to meet Mr Carter tomorrow after which he will also visit the air force base at Langley besides going to the Boeing facility in Philadelphia.
One of the key takeaways from the visit would be signing of the agreement called the 'Logistics Exchange Memorandum of Agreement' (LEMOA).
The agreement was announced during the visit of Mr Carter to India in April this year.
However, it will not allow stationing of troops in each other's bases.
Mr Parrikar is also likely to push for the Predator UAVs.
