On Guard! (1956)

IBM Military Products Unit presents a film about military computers.

'Protection comes high. Sky high. Today we must be on guard in the sky when it comes to protecting our resources; the national resources that are so precious to us. The offensive weapons of tomorrow are here today. Supersonic. Superdestructive. Seemingly unresistable. To protect the future of America the defence techniques of tomorrow had to be discovered now. They were discovered in electronics.'

SAGE Computer System (developed in the 1950's, operational by 1963)
