The first instrumented training system takes flight.
Return to the Timeline of innovation.
Seeing thousands of miles beyond the horizon for advances in detection, tracking and mapping.
Airline reservation system
From 1962 to 1964, SRI led development of a real-time communications system for the Scandinavian Airline System (SAS) to process passenger reservations and check-in.
Steel super alloys
Super-strong alloys can handle the heat.
A softer ride on the rails dramatically reduces damage to freight shipments.
Electrostatic discharge rods
Innovative rods help protect aircraft from potentially dangerous levels of static electricity.
All-magnetic logic computer
Virtually indestructible computer circuitry.
Software implemented fault tolerance
Develop a redundant flight control system that Langley would approve. We made that fly.
