Paper Abstract

The National Laser-Fusion Program has grown into a maturing but still rapidly advancing major research and development program of the ERDA. The LASER, once a solution looking for a problem has found a viable place in the pattern of search for solutions to energy and military problems. The program has grown from less than $1 million in 1963 to a projected total of $101 million in fiscal year 1977. Several existing advances have occurred and several milestones will be passed in the next two years. A projection of our program through the turn of the century is outlined. The hardest obstacles as we see them are presented.
