Abstract : The January issue features a major historical survey of Soviet computer technology, including photographs of nearly all Soviet computers in operation today. The article covers Soviet computer development, beginning with an analog device in 1941 and continuing through current efforts to incorporate integrated circuit technology, including the Ryad project which is aimed at eventual production of System/360-compatible hardware. The Mir-2 computer with graphic terminal light pen is discussed. Overheating in vacuum tube computers, a nagging problem for the Soviets, is explored. Other articles probe computerized crime detection, automated machine system development, computerized national economic planning, automation in the State Bank, and use of computers in planning Western Basin fishing fleet operations.
