As the engine technology had matured to high compression ratio, by-pass flow turbofans during this period, the control technology had also matured to variable geometry controls, e.g., the compressor stator control, intake and nozzle controls. This period exemplified several successful transfers of military engine technologies into commercial engines Science and Technology Intellectual Capital, A Critical U.S. Asset - STEM, Capitalizing on Foreign Graduates, Implications for Deterrence in 2035, Problems in the Future for Space Dominance.
