I have looked through the Sperry Corp. Archives site to no avail. I think I own a rare relic of military aviation technology and I would appreciate any help to determine its value, as well as any information source to learn more about it.

I have several pictures available to send if that would help with identification.

  • $\begingroup$ I dont' have a good answer, but to start with this computer is associated with a sight. It controls a moving mirror stabilized by a gyroscope, and helps the gun operator to keep the target centered, and possibly to predict the deflection required to compensate for target relative velocity. See gyro-gunsight. Similar devices: K3/K4. K4 details. $\endgroup$
