Early computers were heralded by the U. S. military as a means of recognizing and preventing a surprise attack on the nation during the cold war. These computers, which were large enough to fill several rooms, collected data from radar stations, aircraft, and patrol ships to give a large snapshot of the nation's airspace. The government also created public service films in order to demonstrate its military capabilities and calm the nation's fears of an attack by the Soviet Union.
