Abstract : The paper treats the possibility that the aerospace industry could apply its capabilities to the solution of civilian public problems. It examines the relation of the systems approach, as it has been utilized by the aerospace industry in the past, to its possible future use in civilian public areas. It includes a discussion of what an industry move into civilian public areas would imply in relation to the transferability of industry scientists and engineers. It is argued that, in most respects, the domestic issues which face the nation today stem not from the type of technological deficiencies which the aerospace industry has been so successful in overcoming in the past, but rather from an inability of the public and their selected representatives to agree on social and economic objectives.
