Army began evaluating the need to improve the capabilities of their scout aircraft. Anticipating the AH A ‘s replacement of the venerable AH-1 , the Army began shopping the idea of an Aerial Scout Program to stimulate the development of advanced technological capabilities for night vision and precision navigation equipment. The stated goals of the program included prototypes that would: The requirements were formulated around an aircraft capable of performing in day, night, and adverse weather, and compatible with all the advanced weapons systems planned for development and fielding into the s.
The program was approved by the System Acquisition Review Council and the Army prepared for competitive development to begin the next year.

Other schemes, such as markup languages , address page and document layout and formatting. The ambiguity this caused was sometimes intentional, for example where a character would be used slightly differently on a terminal link than on a data stream , and sometimes accidental, for example with the meaning of “delete”.
Paper tape was a very popular medium for long-term program storage until the s, less costly and in some ways less fragile than magnetic tape. The Model 33 was also notable for taking the description of Control-G code 7, BEL, meaning audibly alert the operator literally, as the unit contained an actual bell which it rang when it received a BEL character. Because the keytop for the O key also showed a left-arrow symbol from ASCII , which had this character instead of underscore , a noncompliant use of code 15 Control-O, Shift In interpreted as “delete previous character” was also adopted by many early timesharing systems but eventually became neglected.
This technique became adopted by several early computer operating systems as a “handshaking” signal warning a sender to stop transmission because of impending overflow; it persists to this day in many systems as a manual output control technique. Instead there was a key marked “rubout” that sent code DEL.
The purpose of this key was to erase mistakes in a hand-typed paper tape: The Unix terminal driver could only use one code to back up, this could be set to BS or DEL, but not both, resulting in a very long period of annoyance where you had to correct it depending on what terminal you were using modern shells using readline understand both codes. The “escape” character ESC, code 27 , for example, was intended originally to allow sending other control characters as literals instead of invoking their meaning.
This is the same meaning of “escape” encountered in URL encodings, C language strings, and other systems where certain characters have a reserved meaning. Over time this meaning has been co-opted and has eventually been changed.
