Extending technology: the estimation and control of costs
Hypotheses that relate technology and costs in technological projects are presented and tested. The costs incurred during product development, with product technology as a cost driver, is focused on. Results indicate that the associations between technology measures and development and production cost can be estimated, thus implying measuring systems technology can be used in cost estimation. It was found that development time is critical in the control of development cost. Finally, results show that development and production costs are related contingent on system technology.

Technology control regimes and the globalization of space industry
The prospects for an international space community may not be feasible because of the apparent inability of social groupings to supplant the existing technology control regimes. Operating principles should, instead, be changed so that the existing regime can be more attuned to globalization. These modifications should incorporate a change in the monitoring mechanism of the Missile Technology Control Regime. Private enterprises should also be tapped as shareholders of the MTCR to make it more transparent.
