THE BREADTH AND DEPTH OF MELPAR: PROJECT PROBE

[[image]]

Project Probe consists of the division of research activity that slices horizontally through the areas of pure and applied physical, biological and engineering sciences. The basic philosophy of the program rests on the premise that only by such cross-disciplinary investigations and by a deep penetration into the fundamentals of science will true advances in electronics be forthcoming. 

Melpar Project Probe is not restricted to a fixed family of products, but aims at expansion of knowledge and improvement of capability.

Melpar is seeking scientists and engineers with creative ability and scientific curiosity to participate in any one of the areas of this Probe.

Scientists and engineers who are interested in participating in MELPAR: PROJECT PROBE, are invited to write to F. J. Drummond, 3339 Arlington Boulevard, Falls Church, Virginia.
