Summary of MIT-IBM Collaboration on Design of AN/FSQ-7, Combat Information Central -- October 1 thru October 31, 1953
Kromer, A. P.
Engineering work on AN/FSQ-7 equipment has included release of the pluggable unit design and concentrated activity in mechanical design, basic circuits, drum system design, the display system, and reduction of system tube count. The IBM Vestal Laboratory is handling engineering design and work on the display console. A choice between the Charactron tube or the IBM character generator is imminent. Additional building space for the AN/FSQ-7 (XD-1) installation at Lexington has been requested from the Air Force.
