Fonds contain material relating to operational military research from the second half of the 20th century. The documents are multi-disciplinary in nature, providing scientific, mathematical and historical perspectives of the same topic. Many documents originally come from the Public Records Office UK (PRO), now known as The National Archives (TNA). In such cases, original archival references will be provided, and potential researchers are encouraged to cite these whenever possible.
