Volume 2 of the High-Energy Laser Technology Assessment HELTA will address itself to the questions how and why the TA was carried out, rather than to the actual impacts of high-energy lasers. The intent is to provide reference material for a future member of the Army staff to use when called upon to perform a TA. The need for the Army to become acquainted with the principles of TA was perceived about two years ago, when Congress passed the Technology Assessment Act of 1972 and created the Office of Technology Assessment. Having neither experience nor expertise in the field, the decision was made to gain both by simply doing a TA, looking at it critically, evaluating mistakes and successes, and then setting down a record by which future technology assessment project managers might be guided. This volume is that record.
