Division 6 Limited Memo 6L-190. Memo making a proposal for the responsibilities of various organizations regarding computer programming tasks forseen in the SAGE System as outlined in Memo 6M-3416. Contains four drawings.
Project Whirlwind Limited Memo L-36. Minutes of a group leader meeting discussing the installation of a second bank of ES in WW until a more reliable production model is available. Present: Dodd, Youtz, Corderman, Wieser, Rich, Daggett, and Everett.
MIT DIC 6345. Project Whirlwind Engineering Note E-413. Several core-selecting systems can be devised that offer better selection ratios than the standard 3-dimensional array. Improved selection ratios result in reduced storage access time but at the cost of considerably increased complexity of the driver circuits.
