The Whirlwind I was an early stored program computer developed at MIT, originally begun as a control mechanism for flight trainers, but then reborn as a computer for processing radar data. Jay Forrester was one of the men who developed the concept of the magnetic core storage system, working on the Whirlwind at MIT. The magnetic core reigned supreme as computer storage technology until replaced by integrated circuit memories in the 1970s. R.R. Everett was deputy director of the Whirlwind project working under Forrester. He eventually took over as head the MITRE Corporation.
