Abstract : The following is a series of brief reports on the recent aeronautical developments of several selected fields in Germany and Switzerland, obtained during the overseas mission of the AAF Scientific Advisory Group during May and June of 1945. It is meant to give a coherent picture of the facts with little discussion on their relative importance, as such discussion can only have meaning after the completion of the overall survey and the comparison of technical development made in this country and other countries.
