On April 9 we posted at ExScite/Nostalgia a picture of the 1970’s Scitex product- Kan Akiva (Scitex then still was Scientific Technology). The picture was taken during a field trial on the top of Mount Meron, in Northern Israel.
The giant device was later sold to the Israeli government research arm Refael and was installed in the Southern part of the Israeli desert, the Negev. That picture at ExScite.net has brought fond memories to Ilan Barak. In the early 70’s Ilan had been the Kan Akiva operator at Refael before he joined Scitex. So, Ilan searched through his personal files, found and sent us this picture of him operating the system in the Negev.
YOU too, if your have nostalgic pictures with a story behind them, Email us.
