Abstract
Planning and implementation of high technology electro-optical programs is discussed from both the government and industry viewpoints. The specific case examined is BMD electro-optics development. The government program manager must translate national policy into specific technical requirements and tasks which can be performed and fit budget. The R&D organization must be closely coupled to the government program manager and his mission objectives to assure relevance. At the same time, there must be flexibility to incorporate technology advances that have occurred outside the "institution." Lessons learned from the case study and ways in which R&D management can be improved are also discussed.
