Reflections of a technocrat : managing defense, air, and space programs during the Cold War by John L McLucas( )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the final decade of the 20th century, this nation focused attention on the noble and courageous men and women who, 50 years earlier, had participated in World War II. Thanks to a best-selling book by newscaster Tom Brokaw, the Americans who came of age in the 1930s and early 1940s became known as "the greatest generation." Many of those who fought or supported the war effort humbly disavowed such a superlative. No one, however, can deny the achievements of those citizens who grew up in the hard times of the Great Depression. These young people helped win the largest conflict in world history and went on to make further contributions to this country during the long Cold War that followed. Despite all of its death and destruction, World War II accelerated the growth of scientific knowledge and the march of technology. As one consequence of this, the military services -- in partnership with the nation's universities -- trained many young Americans, especially those with a background in science and engineering, to operate and maintain the new technologies so important to the war effort. Others contributed as civilian scientists and engineers. After the war, many veterans who had been exposed to these new technologies took advantage of the G.I. Bill to seek advanced degrees in science, engineering, mathematics, and related disciplines. When the Cold War set off a prolonged arms race and space competition with the Soviet Union, this well-educated cadre of the greatest generation was ready to provide the technical and managerial expertise needed to meet the Soviet challenge. Combining patriotism with a desire to be on the cutting edge of technology, these "technocrats" played key roles in the defense industry, university and federal research centers, the military services, and other government agencies. Dr. John L. McLucas was one of the finest examples in this group of influential public servants. This monograph is an autobiography of Dr. John L. McLucas
Report of the President's Task Force on Aircraft Crew Complement by President's Task Force on Aircraft Crew Complement (U.S.)( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The President's Task Force on Aircraft Crew Complement: (1) Reviewed the August 1980 decision by the Federal Aviation Administration to certify the McDonnell Douglas DC-9-80 aircraft for operation by a minimum of two persons; and (2) made recommendations concerning the use of two-member crews in the proposed Boeing 757 and 767 and other 'new generation' commercial jet aircraft. Principal conclusions of the Task Force are: Operation of the DC-9-80 by a crew of two is safe and the FAA's certification of the DC-9-80 for operation by a minimum crew of two was proper and in compliance with the Federal Aviation Act.
