Another successful launch from Vandenberg AFB.
Vintage hardware is still alive and kickin' !
My buddy there tells me the contract for the TIPS facility has been
renewed at USAF Western Missile & Space center
With many more launches to come.
"TIPS consists of two systems of the CDC Cyber 840 computers, 21 systems
of the SEL 32/55 and 32/75A computers, and various peripheral and
supporting equipment on 2 acres of floor space."
I wonder what other vintage hardware is still in operation -- museum
collections don't count :)
