Panel On Shipbuilding
The National Research Council's
Maritime Transportation Research
Board, under the chairmanship of
Edgar F. Luckenbach Jr., recently established a Panel on Shipbuild- ing Research and Development.
The panel's assignment, under the sponsorship of the Maritime Ad- ministration of the U.S. Depart- ment of Commerce is to determine what Government and industry re- search will enable the industry to achieve the goals of the President's
Shipbuilding Program. One key question concerns the types of in- centives required for the industry to expand its own research and de- velopment efforts.
In recent weeks the panel has visited several shipyards, including
Litton's new yard at Pascagoula,
Miss., the Naval Shipyard at Ports- mouth, Va., and the Newport News
Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Com- pany in Newport News, Va.
The chairman of the Shipbuild- ing Research and Development
Panel is Dr. John C. Warner, presi- dent emeritus, Carnegie Institute of
