This monograph has been out of print for many years and paper copies are no longer available through the Naval Aviation History Branch or the Government Printing Office. This electronic version has been placed on the NHHC website because it is an excellent reference source for information about the Navy's role in space. As an electronic document, there is a compromise between picture quality and the capability of the optical-character-reader software to correctly identify the text in the monograph, which results in the picture quality being less than optimum.
