Computer Automation built a system for our Federal Aviation
Administration called ARTS-II (Automated Radar Terminal System #2)
What you have may be part of that product line, an off-the-shelf mini
named LSI-II. The boards were huge with hundreds of chips and mounted
horizontally. The power supply was rated at 70 amps on the +5 line!
