Technologically, this effort had parallels to contemporary efforts in missile guidance and numerical control.
In 1952, numerical control reached the developmental stage of laboratory reality.
During the 1950s, numerical control moved slowly from the laboratory into commercial service.
In 1968 he developed the first contour nibbling machine tool with numerical control.
Experts in numerical control, enterprisers and leaders of governments and associations gathered together.
Engineers can now have numerical control over automated devices.
In numerical control, the commands these machines get come from a storage medium; they are not controlled and operated manually.
John T. Parsons, pioneered numerical control for machine tools in the 1940s.
It is an electronic device that allows precise numerical control of machinery.
For systems with less controlled environments such as missiles, numerical optimal control would not prove as useful.
