Interviews include: Robert Crowe (Advanced Research Projects Agency), John Green (Lockheed-Martin Laboratories), Phil Underwood (Lockheed Martin Palo Alto), and James Wagner (Johns Hopkins University).
A documentation research project to study the complex issues facing the historical documentation of multi-institutional collaborations in physics and allied sciences. Phase III focused on four disciplinary areas of ground-based astronomy, materials science, heavy-ion physics, and medical physics, and a category named computer-mediated collaborations. A materials science project, the Smart Materials Consortium was a collaboration of Martin Marietta Baltimore, Lockheed Palo Alto (now Lockheed-Martin), AVX (a ceramics manufacturer in Myrtle Beach, S. Carolina), Martin Marietta Astronautics Denver, the Naval Research Laboratory, BDM (an engineering and consulting firm outside Washington, D.C.), and the University of Maryland, Johns Hopkins, the University of Virginia, and Clemson University to develop a better vibration-canceling device. The project was managed from Martin Marietta Baltimore, which no longer exists as a result of Lockheed's purchase of Martin Marietta. Funded by ARPA under "agreements authority" granted to DOD in 1993 legislation, with cost-sharing from the corporate participants and modest grants from state governments to the universities. The collaboration was funded from 1992 - 1997.
