National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council, Washington, DC. Assembly of Engineering.
This report summarizes the findings of one of fourteen panels that studied progress in space science applications and defined user needs potentially capable of being met by space-system applications. The study was requested by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and was conducted by the Space Applications Board. The panels comprised user specialists drawn from federal, state, and local governments and from business and industry. In this report, the Panel on Institutional Arrangements examines the application of space systems to earthly problems that are recognized as currently or imminently critical. The Panel recommended that deliberate and planned programs together with the necessary institutional arrangements be established to assure the widest possible application of space technology. (MH)
