John Wiley & Sons, 16 апр. 2003 г. - Всего страниц: 492
When Computers Went to Sea explores the history of the UnitedStates Navy's secret development of code-breaking computers andtheir adaptation to solve a critical fleet radar data handlingproblem in the Navy's first seaborne digital computer system - thatwent to sea in 1962. This is the only book written on the UnitedStates Navy's initial application of shipboard digital computers tonaval warfare.
Considered one of the most successful projects ever undertaken bythe US Navy, the Naval Tactical Data System (NTDS) was the subjectof numerous studies attempting to pinpoint the reason for thesystems inordinate success in the face of seemingly impossibletechnical challenges and stiff resistance from some in themilitary. The system's success precipitated a digital revolution innaval warfare systems.
Dave Boslaugh details the innovations developed by the NTDS projectmanagers including: project management techniques, modular digitalhardware for ship systems, top-down modular computer programmingtechniques, innovative computer program documentation, and othernovel real-time computer system concepts.
Automated military systems users and developers, real-time processcontrol systems designers, automated system project managers, anddigital technology history students will find this account of aUnited States military organization's initial foray intocomputerization interesting and thought provoking.
