Scope and Content Note
The Naval Technical Mission in Europe
was established 26 December 1944 to exploit German science and technology for
the benefit of the Navy's technical bureaus and the Coordinator of Research
and Development. Information was transmitted to Washington initially in a summary
form by Letter Report. However, the bulk of the information collected was described
in more detailed Technical Reports that were produced under less urgent conditions
than the Letter Reports. The highest priority was given to data applicable in
the war against Japan. The Mission was decommissioned on 1 November 1945.
This collection should be cited as Records of the Naval Technical Mission in Europe, Operational Archives Branch, Naval Historical Center, Washington, D.C.
