National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council, Washington, DC. Assembly of Engineering.
The central task of a 1980 workshop on the role of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in aeronautics was to examine the relationship of NASA's research capabilities to the state of U.S. aviation and to make recommendations about NASA's future role in aeronautics. The findings and recommendations of the Panel on Military Aviation, focusing on all fixed-wind military airplanes and aerodynamic missiles, are presented under the following categories: (1) Status and Dimensions of the Military Aeronautics Community; (2) Military Aeronautical Research and Technology Needs; (3) Evolution of NASA's Current Role in Military Aeronautics; (4) NASA's Role in Military Aeronautics - 1980 and Beyond; (5) Alternatives; and (6) Recommendations. A White House memorandum and definitions of roles and disciplines are included in appendices. (Author/DS)
