THE BIG PICTURE goes behind barbed wire, protected by maximum security precautions, to visit the Evans Lab, which is a subdivision of the U.S. Army Signal Engineering Laboratory in Fort Monmouth, New Jersey.

Through the eyes of THE BIG PICTURE camera we see one of the Army's largest research center -- a multi-million dollar plant -- which is required for the meteorology program. The Army's need to know more and more about weather that surrounds this planet is a vital part of the expanded research program of atomic weapons. We all talk about the weather. In this film documentary, THE BIG PICTURE shows the Army doing something about the weather.
