Abstract : The Bumblebee Technical Panels were conceived and instituted in 1945 as an integral part of the Bumblebee weapon development program. For twenty years these Panels, organized and managed by APL, served a number of useful functions in promoting guided missile technology and in providing a forum for working-level exchange of technical information by military, contractor, and APL personnel. It is the intent of this Summary: (1) to document the objectives and history of the Panel concept as used in the Bumblebee program, (2) to list for easy reference the statistics on each Panel for membership, meetings and minutes, (3) to list in the Bibliography selected reference documents on Panel policy and actions. The technical problems treated by the Panels can be found in the individual Minutes published by the APL Technical Reports Group. These volumes testify to the breadth of scope of the subject matter.
