Abstract:

Nineteen ninety-four was a year of accomplishment for the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization BMDO. Our Clementine satellite thrilled the nation and inspired the aerospace community with its multispectral images of the moons surface, viewable daily on any personal computer linked to the Intemet. Clementine tested 2 dozen advanced BMDO technologies in deep space, and she was launched in less than 2 years for an unfathomable 75 million. Also, the Delta Clipper Experiment showcased BMDOs single-stage-to-orbit technology with a second successful demonstration of vertical takeoff and landing. As this publication will attest, however, BMDO has continued to exploit these and many other technological successes for their commercial as well as military value. The aggressive technology transfer program that we began in 1986 drives our investment strategy to consider the market and military application of our research at the start of every endeavor.
