商品の説明

内容紹介

Donald MacKenzie follows one line of technology -- strategic ballistic missile guidance through a succession of weapons systems to reveal the workings of a world that is neither awesome nor unstoppable. He uncovers the parameters, the pressures, and the politics that make up the complex social construction of an equally complex technology.

レビュー

Inventing Accuracy is a brilliant achievement that will, if we are fortunate, change widespread misunderstandings about technological innovation. The strength of this book lies not only in its extremely clear and nuanced theoretical statements, but also in its rich historical narrative. This book should be of great interest to a diverse audience. It also provides a creative, if extremely demanding, model for future scholarship on technology and national security.

(Lynn Eden Survival)

This is a great piece of sociology and a great book.... gripping, superbly researched, fair, sympathetic, and ultimately, hopeful.

(Steven Shapin American Journal of Sociology)

5つ星のうち 5.0 My sorties dropped into MOSR 48? What the heck does that mean and WHAT my missiles are doing?!? 2014/12/31
投稿者 Joseph T. Page II - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
There is a online video spread amongst new missile combat crew members at Vandenberg Air Force Base, explaining how the missile guidance system finds its target. "The missile knows where it is, by knowing where it isn't." Most missileers laugh the explanation off as a joke, but as you'll find in Donald MacKenzie's book, "Inventing Accuracy," that "joke" isn't too far off from the truth.

Keep in mind that the book is a historical sociology of guidance, so many areas and types of missile systems are covered. Simple systems within the German V-2, to the "floating ball thingy" with laser ring gyros from the MX Peacekeeper missile are talked about. TERCOM and GPS guided air-launched cruise missiles (ALCMs) are covered briefly, as taking cruise missiles over the poles tends to require a vastly different type of mapping and guidance.

As a researcher, I found this book was a boon for details. Thoroughly footnoted and end noted, I found more rabbit holes to run down with each page I turned. If you want to know the "how's" and "why's" to missile system guidance, this will give you the story-behind-the-story. If you want to know why your missiles went into "PIGA Leveling," the best you'll find in here is the definition of PIGA (Pendulous Integrating Gyroscopic Accelerometer), not the math or physics behind it.

Bottom line: if you're interested in a history of missile guidance, get the book. If you're a math geek, this ain't going to help you much (and there are other formula-laden books that will excite you).

FYI, missileers - for the PIGA leveling question, just trust your Technical Data in your Dash -22.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Like Going Through Your Grandfathers Attic - If he developed ICBM Guidance Systems 2016/4/18
投稿者 Tech Historian - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
If you're interested in technical history of computing and/or military guidance systems how can you not love this odd treasure chest of a book. It feels like your grandfather taking you through his attic, giving you brief descriptions of most of it and a few lovingly remembered deep dives into things he worked on and cared about.

This is four books in one;
The first half of the book is a summary of every computer system ever built in the 1940's, 50's and 60's. It's like having a guide as you walk through the backroom of the Computer History Museum in Mountain View.
The next part of the book is a detailed survey of all U.S. cruise and ballistic missile programs from 1940's until today. Then finally a survey of all Soviet/Russian cruise and ballistic missile programs from 1940's until today.

Overlaid on the cruise and ballistic missile programs is a description of the guidance systems of each one. There are details from the authors personal experience in designing these systems not found anywhere.

Read it in conjunction with Inventing Accuracy: A Historical Sociology of Nuclear Missile Guidance (Inside Technology)
5つ星のうち 5.0 it is good to have a place to revisit the founding ideas ... 2014/9/9
投稿者 Maverick - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
This book is absolutely superb.

It lays out with considerable clarity what the interplay between the science, technology, application and the politics of inertial navigation systems is/was/will be. These four strands are typically co-mingled into every technology in the world today. The author has put in serious effort to untangle the threads and lay it all out.

With so many discussions in the public arena today about the DF-21D system and its impact on posture in the Taiwan Straits, the South China Sea, the East China Sea and the Sea of Japan, it is good to have a place to revisit the founding ideas in inertial navigation. It is certainly productive to use the analytical layout of this book to critically examine information about the DF-21D and other high hypersonic platforms.

The only concern I have is that this work casts a rather uncomfortable light on experiments that measure "G", the gravitational constant. Hopefully discerning readers would see that the scientific necessity of such efforts is independent of any applications.

This book is ideally suited for advanced readers, I can't recommend it as an exploratory read for people unfamiliar with the subject matter.

5つ星のうち 5.0 One of the Best Books on Research and Development in General 2013/8/21
投稿者 D. Chapman - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
While this book is mainly about ICBM guidance systems, the procedures and political battles which are described will be familiar to anyone who has worked on a large technology project.

The most interesting parts of the book revolve around how the Navy submarine missile program changed from a "survivable, non-threatening deterrent force" into a first-strike system which actually provides less warning than land-based ICBMs.

I was recently watching a TV history of the moon landings, and they had a section about the inertial guidance system used in the Apollo program, compete with gyroscope cages spinning around. It was quite odd to see the TV version of this book.

Highly recommended.
5つ星のうち 4.0 Almost perfect! 2016/6/14

Authoritative, well planned & executed, though sometimes it's easy to get lost in the author's florid prose & run-on sentences. Excellent non-technical overview of the challenges & solutions to developing more & more accurate ICBM guidance during the Cold War. If you are interested in the development of military technology then this book belongs in your library. A+++!
