Part of GEC
1961 GEC formed a JV with Thompson Ramo Wooldridge to market Thompson's industrial process control systems in the UK; Thompson would contribute experience of applying industrial process control in industry; the new company would be called International Systems Control
The ISC computer controllers were manufactured in Coventry but in 1965 Bunker Ramo formed a link with General Electric of USA, so GEC organised an alternative source of process computers reportedly from Scientific Data Systems (S.D.S.) of California
1965 GEC acquired its partner's interest in International Systems Control. I.S.C. entered into an agreement with Scientific Data Systems of USA and Compagnie Europeene d'Automatisme Electronique of France for the joint development, manufacture and marketing of computers worldwide
