I've happened across some control panels from a very early NASA computer system. I haven't been able to find any info about its function or application. Does anyone have any info about this machine? Photos of it in operation would be especially interesting.

Based on where I bought the panels, they may have come from Goddard Space Flight Center. Telemetrics now makes remote TV viewing system controllers. Couldn't find anything about any general purpose computers that they might have built.

The panels were enthusiastically de-milled before I got them. I'm hoping that I can get them back into some semblance of a presentable condition so I can light them up properly. The first panel uses uncommon IEE One Plane planar projection readouts, while the second uses even rarer Burroughs Sphericular Projection displays. I couldn't find any date codes, but the decimal based layout of the system makes me think they were pretty early, probably 60's.
