I'm following the links from radomes.org and reading with interest about SAGE.
At mitre.org it says:
-When complete, the AN/FSQ-7 weighed 250 tons, and required a 3,000kW
-power supply and over 49,000 vacuum tubes. When SAGE became fully
-operational, it relied on 24 AN/FSQ-7s; they remained in service
-until the Air Force ended the SAGE program in 1983.
Is this TRUE? Did they actually use vacuum tube computers up untill 1983?
