Abstract

In this paper the development of real-time computing terms, systems, hardware, and software from the 1940s through the 1960s in the United States is examined. In addition, the contributions of significant individuals, corporations, and government through the projects they fostered during these early ears are surveyed. And in particular it is contended that Project Whirlwind, a post-World War II flight simulator, was the first American real-time system.
