Abstracts of the Proceedings of the 1962 X-20A Dyna-Soar Symposium are presented in this report. The X-20A program developing the pilot controlled lifting reentry glider and conducting full-scale hypersonic flight research is one of the most extensive advanced developments under way in the Air Force. To insure the timely dissemination of the data obtained by the X-20A program, the 1962 X-20A symposium was held to present new and significant knowledge gained during this development period to the aerospace industry, scientific and Government agencies. Materials were presented in ten technical areas consisting of flight mechanics, structures, materials, guidance, communications, instrument power and environment subsystems, bioastronautics, testing and ground support. Papers in two of these areas are assembled in each of five volumes of this report. Author
