I have added links to as many of the organizations referenced in Astronautics and its Applications as I could find. Some of these bear little resemblance to themselves at the time of this report's publication. In some cases the organization has gone through a merger. For example Glen L. Martin Co. became Martin Marietta, then Merged with Lockheed to become Lockheed Martin. Some companies were taken over but the name was not kept. This was the case of Lockheed Martin's purchase of Loral.
Some other links to NASA, Government sites, or magazines are not referenced in the report. I have included them because they contain information about the general subjects in the report.
I would appreciate some information on the companies I could not find. Aeronutronics was bought out by Loral and again by Lockheed/Martin. The unit may have undergone a name change because a search of the Lockheed/Martin page did not find it. I found out Pergamon Press was a division of Addison-Wesley from Standard and Poors. The Addison web page makes no reference to Pergamon. If anyone knows of better pages please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
