Club Meeting – Lynn Liebschutz, NASA Computer Memory and More

February 1 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing is approaching! This is our first NASA-related tech talk!

While at IBM Federal Systems Division located in Owego, NY Lynn Liebschutz worked on the On Board Computer memory system for Gemini and follow-on guidance and navigation. A similar memory system in a much more robust computer existed in the Instrument Unit ring stacked in NASA’s three-stage Saturn V launch vehicle. We’ll be hearing about this highly reliable computing system, and Lynn probably will mention earlier and later projects, such as a wirelessly communicating computer system for the National Bureau of Standards, radiation hardened computer memory systems, and even bubble memory.
