These folder contains material related to the early development proposals for the Venus Improvement Project (VIP) and Nautilus II, and the decision to pursue one over the other. VIP was to be a faster, less expensive version of VAX 8600, and Nautilus II an upgrade to the VAX 8700 (Nautilus). Nautilus II was chosen to go into development.
