[iii], [1], 59, [1] pages. Illustrations (some in color). Format is approximately 5.5 inches by 8.5 inches. TRW Inc. was an American corporation involved in aerospace, automotive, and credit reporting. It was a pioneer in multiple fields including electronic components, integrated circuits, computers, software and systems engineering. TRW built many spacecraft, including Pioneer 1, Pioneer 10, and several space-based observatories. In 1958 the company was called Thompson Ramo Woolridge, after three prominent leaders. This was later shortened to TRW. The company was acquired by Northrop Grumman in 2002. It helped create a variety of corporations, including the Aerospace Corporation, Bunker-Ramo, Experian, and TRW Automotive which is now part of ZF Friedrichshafen. Persons coming from TRW were important to build up corporations like SpaceX. In 1953, the company was recruited to lead the development of the United States' first ICBM. Starting with the initial design by Convair, the multi-corporate team launched Atlas in 1957. It flew its full range in 1958 and was adapted to fly the Mercury astronauts into orbit. TRW also led development of the Titan missile.
