Jacobs, Delbert Harold (1961) The conduct of basic research in the aerospace industry. Engineer's thesis, California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-12222005-092206
An analysis of basic research activities in the Aerospace industry is presented. A detailed study of Boeing, Convair, Lockheed, and Douglas indicates extensive and widely varying approaches to basic research in these companies.
The establishment of a successful basic research organization in any environment is a sequential process subject to many problems and setbacks. The airframe companies, though making promising progress toward this goal, still have a long way to go. The inherent hazards associated with the aerospace business threaten the fledgling basic research organizations, and I believe it will be the exception and not the rule that sound basic research activity will result.
