Four Alternative Proposals for Accommodating the 64 x 64 Memory in MTC, 1953 August 14
Geometry of magnetic memory elements, 1956 January 18
Division 6 Memo M-4089. Two possible memory element geometries — the thin film and the toroid — are considered. The calculations show that under certain conditions the thin film geometry may be preferable for use in a very high-speed memory. Includes: introduction; theoretical ruminations; discussions and conclusions.

Group 62 Section Leaders Meeting - 8 February 1954, 1954 February 8
Project Whirlwind Memo M-2665. Consideration is being given to have MIT provide assistance to IBM with engineering development of specific items of the system. Decision on the switching system for drum circuits has been postponed. An engineering model of a mapper developed by IBM has been installed in WWI for test purposes.
Group 62 Section Leaders Meeting 24 May, 1954, 1954 May 27
Project Whirlwind Memo M-2837. Meetings with Air Force ADC have led to a plan for implementing the Air Division Combat Operations Center with a simplex FSQ-7 and a supplementary large board (projected) display. A procedure to formalize the processing of information thru the Control office to DES, Air Force, etc. is being prepared. Modifications to the display system have resulted in a reduction of approximately 3000 tubes. MTC will be moved to Lexington starting June 7.
Group 62 Section Leaders Meeting 25 January 1954, 1954 January 25
Project Whirlwind Memo M-2651. Decision on the display system and basic circuits for the instruction control frame were reached during the week. A revised basis for release of design and constructions by IBM in advance of Lincoln approval has been proposed by Project High. Initial negotiations leading to an Air Force contract for two duplex centrals (in addition to the XD-1 and XD-2 systems) have been started.
Group 62 Section Leaders Meeting-- AN/FSQ-7 Equipment Design Program, 1953 October 13
Project Whirlwind Memo M-2470. Two situations urgently need attention at the present time. The vacuum tube count for a central has become rather large, and every effort should be made to see what can be done to reduce the count. The space required for XD-1 exceeds the space available in the basement of building A, and several alternate arrangements are being investigated. Progress in other fields is fairly satisfactory.
Group 62 Section Leaders Meeting--April 5, 1954, 1954 April 6
Project Whirlwind Memo M-2760. IBM will furnish monthly status reports relative to time schedules. MTC will move about June 1 and be operative again about July 15. An initial proposal on the duplex central will be distributed about May 1. A separate drum field will be used for Mark X and Fine Grain Data inputs.
