Sec. 511. Joint development of unitary plan for construction of

facilities; construction at educational institutions

-STATUTE-

The Administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space

Administration (hereinafter referred to as the "Administrator") and

the Secretary of Defense are authorized and directed jointly to

develop a unitary plan for the construction of transsonic,

supersonic, and hypersonic wind-tunnel facilities for the solution

of research, development, and evaluation problems in aeronautics,

including the construction of facilities at educational

institutions within the continental limits of the United States for

training and research in aeronautics, and to revise the uncompleted

portions of the unitary plan from time to time to accord with

changes in national defense requirements and scientific and

technical advances. The Administrator and the Secretaries of the

Army, the Navy, and the Air Force are authorized to proceed with

the construction and equipment of facilities in implementation of
