The NBS Summary Technical Reports (STRs) were typically brief summaries of research, developments, and test activities conducted by the National Bureau of Standards (NBS). Report topics were chosen for their importance to contemporary scientists, engineers, and industry members. The reports were published by the NBS Office of Public Information and were sometimes included in the NBS Technical News Bulletin. The series began in 1946 as the NBS Technical Reports, and was changed to the NBS Summary Technical Reports in 1953. The series was discontinued in 1975.
