Programming the IBM System 360 by the staff of CUC

As a result of the specifications developed at the FAA NAFEC, FAA contracted with IBM for 9020 computer systems (actually tri-plex IBM System/360, Model 50s) for the ATC application.  IBM then contracted with CUC to program the System/360, including the JOVIAL compiler and all of the supporting software (but not the application software.) Ascher Opler directed this effort.

Early 1964: IBM contracted with CUC to use the software being developed for the System/360 to develop a program to keep track of  the election results, 1964 being a presidential year. This system was used by CBS TV to report these results on election evening. Based on this experience CUC staff members wrote this book “Programming the IBM System/360” which was published by John Wiley and Sons in 1966.
