Ad: about missile guidance (Jan, 1955)

This is the first in a really weird series of ads I’m posting from the Ford Instrument Company. All of them involve these two little dolls doing things like launching missiles or torpedoes, shooting guns, or manning radar stations. Very odd stuff.

about missile guidance
…AND FORD INSTRUMENT COMPANY
To make sure that a missile hits its target, Ford Instrument provides it with a guidance system that is sensitive to the variable conditions it meets along the way. If you have problems in this field, it will pay you to talk them over with Ford engineers. Guided missile devices are typical of the systems that Ford designs and manufactures for the Armed Forces and the Atomic Energy Commission. Thousands of Ford specialists are now working on such projects as electronic, hydraulic, mechanical and electrical servo-mechanisms, computers, controls and drives.

Ever since 1915, when Hannibal C. Ford built the first gunfire computer for the U.S. Navy, Ford Instrument has been a leader in applying the science of automatic control to American defense and peacetime industry.
