Abstract:

Convinced that resources devoted to research related to windtunnel design and operation in the NATO nations are barely adequate, the research committee shows in this report that low redundancy and high effectiveness is exhibited by the program. As investigations discussed in this report come to fruition and the results are applied, there is an absolute need for the resources thus released to be used for acquisition of additional improved windtunnel technology in order to maximize the effectiveness of our limited resources. Needs for such advances and the possibilities for achieving the further technology gains are developed in this report and technology gains requiring further research are specified.
