Abstract : This report describes operational activity and technical progress under ONR-sponsored Project Poorboy which is directed toward low cost, interim and quick-fix solutions to operational and intelligence problems of limited conflict. Because of its emphasis, solutions are characterized by their deliberate naivete, simplicity and off-the-shelf nature. Subjects addressed include covered communications, biomagnetism, underwater navigation, variable parameters of x-ray operation, and special communications problems. (Author)
