anti-aircraft fire control… AND FORD INSTRUMENT COMPANY
In World War I, anti-aircraft fire against slow, low flying planes, could be managed by optical sighting and correcting from observed air bursts. Today’s supersonic planes, flying at great altitudes must be tracked by radar and the guns directed by complex computers.
The Navy Bureau of Ordnance and Ford Instrument Company perfected the first successful naval anti-aircraft gun director (Mk 19) back in 1926 and Ford Instrument Company has been one of the outstanding leaders in this field ever since.
Precision equipment for the exacting problems of computers and controls for both the military and industry, has been the specialty of Ford Instrument Company since 1915.
Ever since Hannibal C.: Ford built the first gunfire computers for the U. S. Navy forty years ago, Ford Instrument Company has been a leader in applying the science of automatic control to American defense and peacetime industry.
