The report treats the possibility that the aerospace industry could apply its capabilities to the solution of large-scale public problems, thus offsetting any significant reductions in the military budget. It includes discussion of what this action would imply in relation to the transferability of industry scientists and engineers. Studies performed by four aerospace contractors for the State of California are used as case examples of the industrys attempt to transfer some of its R and D skills to civilian and public projects. Conclusions are reached that 1 as indicators of the transferability of industry scientists and engineers, the four California studies are inconclusive 2 the largest group of scientists and engineers in the industry, those engaged in design and development, may well be the least transferable and 3 civilian-public projects are unlikely to become in the next 5 years or so a significant part of the industrys business.
