It was the purpose of this paper to examine the necessity for the association of research and development with the national defense requirement; to determine the methods and procedures utilized by the Atomic Energy Commission, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and, particularly, the Department of Defense to achieve this association; and, finally, to evaluate the effectiveness of the research and development funds expended to support the established defense policies. Today, as never before, national defense focuses on the technical question, and it has been postulated that technological surprise may represent the primary danger to national security. This emphasis on the technological dimension of decision-making requires that research and development be utilized to erect a national military posture to meet the long-term needs of security. The author has analyzed this scientific-military phenomenon in its relationship to the defense policy of the United States.
