Capturing, Restoring, and Presenting, the Independent Radar Investigation System (IRIS)

Abstract : This paper describes a recent project at The National Museum of Computing (TNMoC) to capture, restore to working order, and present to the public, an early air traffic control system. It discusses the importance of capturing an extensive range of information, relating to the system, at the point of donation, the value of this information within the restoration process, the techniques used within the restoration itself, and the value of expressing the social impact of the system in order to convey its relevance to the public.
