The Original Building
Data Corporation was founded in 1958 by Bill Gorog, a salesman, and Lyle Cahill, an engineer. Their goal was to provide state-of-the-art equipment and uniquely skilled personnel services to the US Air Force reconnaisance and surveillance comunity at nearby W-PAFB and other locations world-wide.
