For the specific goal to control or predict man-made ionization effects the Defense Department has stimulated research in some areas and particularly in ionospheric physics. The results are reviewed with the implication that most of them are significant only within the larger pool of knowledge being produced by basic research. The review covers recent results gained by means of rockets and satellites on various atmospheric parameters and on the various particle inputs. Further, it reports on conjugate phenomena, on geographical features of particle influx and of electric fields and on progress in radio propagation measuring techniques. Finally, it reviews the observed effects on the ionosphere during the coordinated 12 November 1966 solar eclipse expedition. Author
