Series Description

 

I.  Mission Analysis Division Records, 1965-1974

Physical Description: 56 folders

Series Description

The materials in Series I reflect the activities of the Mission Analysis Division, System Studies Division, and the Advanced Concepts and Missions Division from 1965 to 1974. Many records relate to Lockheed contract NAS 2-5202, in which methodologies and computer models were constructed for optimal launch vehicle assignment for advanced space missions in light of strict budgetary constraints. According to one of the reports associated with this contract, "a primary objective [of the study] is provision of an analytical tool to help the advance planner to maximize, under restrictive budget constraints, the accomplishment of a future space program." Materials related to the Burner II, Titan/Centaur, Solid/Agena and Saturn family of launch vehicles are included in this series.
 

II.  Technology Applications Records, 1974-1998

Physical Description: 44 folders

Series Description

Series II consists of records related to the activities of the NASA Ames Data Research and Management Branch, Technology Applications Branch and Ecosystem Science and Technology (ECOSAT) Branch from 1974 to 1998. Here, Slye was involved in performing research in ecosystem science, remote sensing, and computational image analysis. Many materials relate to the Landsat Remote Sensing Technology Program and the Western Regional Applications Program (WRAP). Slye was particularly involved in remote sensing, airborne imaging, and data processing research. Research subjects include coastal-zone, forestry, geography, geology, hydrology, meteorology, oceanography, agricultural and fire studies.
 

III.  NASA Ames Administrative Records, 1971-2001

Physical Description: 11 folders

Series Description

Series III consists of records on topics such as exhibits, personnel appointments, policies, Ames events and activities, length of service honors, branch/division restructuring and other organizational changes, and a transcript of the 1996 "State of the Center" address by Director Ken K. Munechika.
 

IV.  General/Reference Publications, 1961-1999

Physical Description: 40 folders

Series Description

Series IV consists of secondary publications on topics such as missiles, aeronautics, lunar and planetary sciences, extraterrestrial life, remote sensing, meteor orbits/dust and astrophysics, symposium proceedings, materials related to computing (including the Illiac IV, Cray I, Cray-IS and VAX computers and ARPANET), newsletters (both published by NASA and by outside entities) and other general materials.
