A Special Technology Area Review STAR of frequency control technology was held by Working Group A of the Department of Defense DoD Advisory Group on Electron Devices in March 1995. The goal was to develop a DoD investment strategy for research and development RD on frequency control devices. The STAR sought answers to questions such as What are the DoD system needs and how critical are these needs Are DoDs needs being met What are the commercial needs, and to what extent can commercially available devices meet DoD needs What is the total RD activity in the field - in government, industrial and university laboratories What critical-path RD and manufacturability problems need to be solved, if any Are there any showstoppers What is the probability that solutions will be found What will the solutions cost What are the trade-offs if solutions are not developed What are the emerging technologies To what extent can these technologies contribute to DoD capabilities in the future Are these technologies being adequately developed If not, what would it cost Who are the key organizations to make it happen What is the industrial base, and is the industrial base adequate for meeting the future RD and manufacturing requirements of DoD What should be the role of DoD be in this technology area The conclusions and recommendations of this STAR are described in a report entitled Special Technology Area Review on Frequency Control Devices. The report is available from Advisory Group on Electron Devices - Working Group A Palisades Institute for Research Services 1745 Jefferson Davis Highway, Suite 500 Arlington, VA 22202-3702, U.S.A.
