Abstract: When computers were first introduced to the task of managing gas gridlines by means of telemetry, one of the concepts which became an early possibility was that of using a conventional business system for the computing part of the system with the benefits of commonality and support which this would bring. Traditionally, the big names in business systems IBM, ICL, DEC had not much been involved in telemetry systems and although both DEC and IBM had supplied standalone scientific computers to others to build into telemetry systems neither had ventured into this difficult market.

Several companies specialising in telmetry type work had realised the benefits of using standard 'commercial' computers around which could be designed the necessary telemetry and telecontrol interfaces but mainly because the two approaches, 'scientific' and 'commercial' originate from different stables using different specialist skills, the integration is even now uncommon.

This paper describes the progress, up to the time of writing, of the 1990 system. The system is in the final stages of production and testing and is due for delivery to site in April, 1990.
