It allowed cable systems in the United States and Canada to provide on-screen listings to their subscribers 24 hours a day displaying programming information up to 90 minutes in advance on a dedicated cable channel. Raw listings data for the service was supplied via satellite to participating cable systems, each of which installed a computer within its headend facility to present that data to subscribers in a format customized to the system’s unique channel lineup. The system was the focus of a article in STV Magazine. A remote control was used to interact with the unit. When the user found a show they wanted to watch, they would have to turn off the guide and then tune the satellite receiver to the correct service. The guide information was distributed by satellite using the home owner’s dish as the receiver. The information was stored locally so that the user could use the guide without having to be on a particular satellite or service. In March , a second generation SuperGuide system was introduced that was integrated into the Uniden receiver. When the user found the show of interest, they pressed a button on the remote and the receiver tuned to the show they wanted to watch.

Initially a Luftwaffe project, it fell under the auspices of armaments minister Albert Speer before being taken over once again in by Hans Kammler.
Eyewitnesses captured by the Allies after WW2 claimed to have seen the saucer produced in Prague fly on several occasions in early Joseph Andreas Epp, an engineer who served as a consultant to the Schriever-Habermohl project, stated 15 prototypes were built in all. He described how a central cockpit surrounded by rotating adjustable wing-vanes formed a circle. The vanes were held together by a band at the outer edge of the wheel-like device.
