CDC 1700 for Amdel

CSIRO Problem In Computer Network

The Canberra Times, 24 August, 1971

As a result of a decision to upgrade their computer services to the mineral industry, the Australian Mineral Development Laboratories have decided to install their own computer system at Adelaide headquarters.

Amdel has ordered a CDC 1700 system from Control Data Australia Ply Ltd, to process the greater part of an increasing work load.

Large and complex programs will continue to be run on the CDC 6400 at Adelaide University which has, until now, been processing all Amdel's requirements.
