There's a SAGE manual on-line in Al Kossow's website (under "ibm").
I skimmed through it, looking for a discussion of time sources. Saw
none, much to my surprise. I suppose it might come embedded in the
radar data stream, or something like that.

Neat document. Very impressive machine, amazing quantity of data
processed for that era...
