Coming out in 2016….

Privileged Perch: The Naval Research Laboratory and the Ascent of the Space Age. With an expected release by the Naval Institute Press in Spring 2015, this book chronicles for a wide audience a little known but hugely consequential player, the Naval Center for Space Technology (NCST), in the advent and maturation of the Space Age and the U.S. space program. It’s a a tale that spans from the birth of the Space Age, through the fear and paranoia of the Cold War, and onward toward the quest for ubiquitous, global-scale detection of modern-day security threats.
