Abstract : The author believes that the future performance of Soviet advanced technologies depends to a large extent on a single organization, the Soviet Academy of Science, an R/D performer in the majority of areas significant to advanced technologies. He focuses on the Academy and the reasons why he considers it pivotal to Soviet technological development. This leads directly to the much discussed topic of industrial innovation and the impediments that characterize the Soviet R/D system.
