What became crystal clear was that the USA feels little need for overseas input to its National Aero-Space Plane (NASP) pro gramme, at least until the planned X-30 technology dem onstrator is fly ing. Officials were careful not to rule out the possibility but left little doubt that US solu tions to th...
