The Computer operator is making an adjustment in one of the two bays of DC Amplifiers. There are seventy-six DC Amplifiers utilized in the NIKE computer and they are continuously being reset by Zero Set switches. Additionally, oil filled precision empirical wire wound potentiometers function to solve the sine, cosine and tangent trigonometric functions to solve the SAM problem, by converting spherical coordinate data into rectangular coordinate data.
