GE's Ground Systems D e p a r t m e n t Renamed

Effective immediately, General Electric's Ground Systems Department will operate with a new name: Simulation and Control Systems Department.

Formed originally to provide ground systems support for the Apollo Space Program, the Daytona Beach, Fla., facility has successfully re-directed its product emphasis in recent years. By exploiting space technology expertise in the design of digital and display systems, the department has become a major supplier of s h i p b o a r d automation systems, and is a leader in the design and production of Computer Generated Image systems for visual simulation. The new title has been chosen to more accurately identify these activities.

Commenting on the name change, the department general manager, Dr. James C. Castle, noted: "Changing our department name r e i n f o r c e s rather than changes what we do and what we plan to do. The new name is more appropriate for us, and it does underline the success which we have had in pursuing important new business opportunities for the General Electric Company."
