It's Not Easy Being Green (or "Red"): The IBM Stretch Project. By Dag Spicer, April 01, In the early to mid s, IBM and UNIVAC, the only two large companies building computers, were beginning to consider transistors as a viable manufacturing technology for their products.

Steeped in long traditions, Navies tend to be very conservative organizations. And yet, there are times when these organizations will exhibit a remarkable willingness to blaze new technological trails. Two examples, one from the history of the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) and the other from the U.S.

I left Univac in to work for a small company called Macro corp. Worked on computers such as the XDS (Xerox Data Systems) Sigma, and others now long forgotten.

Then I returned to Univac at Warminster in Initially there, I worked on the LAMPS ASW acoustic processor, built in ST. The ERAlater renamed UNIVACwas a computer system designed and built by Engineering Research Associates (ERA) in the early s and continued to be sold by the Remington Rand corporation after that company later purchased ERA.

Its (initial) military model, the ERA Atlas, was the first stored-program computer that was moved from its site of manufacture and successfully installed.
