From page 20...
... Relations between the civil space program and national security space activities as envisioned in the 1958 Space Act were to be close and cooperative. The DOD was to benefit from space research and development carried out by NASA, and, under properly controlled circumstances, technology could also flow in the other direction.
From page 21...
... Strong, cooperative programs, particularly in space engineering research, and better liaison between the two agencies would strengthen the national security space program, lend new vitality to civil efforts, and enable the country to receive the maximum benefit from its investments in space. Technical coordination also serves to communicate the existence of new technology, and joint efforts among the players could enable greater accomplishment.
