This study describes and analyzes military and FAA liaison efforts which impact on the management of the National Aviation System. It begins with the historical development of the National Aviation System NAS. The system is evolutionary in nature and most innovations have come from user demands and outside sources. Long term government responsibility to manage the system has been secondary to the operation and maintenance functions. There has been duplication of effort due to poor coordination on developing technology that led to improvement of the system. The methodology used was research of historical and contemporary literature, supplemented by personal interviews with individuals currently involved directly in the liaison process. The combination of extensive personal interviews and the many general and technical reports available emphasize the fractionalized responsibilities within the system and provide a diverse information base that is unavoidably large.
