Other Comments:

Admiral Fiske was probably the greatest naval inventor of his time, with numerous innovations in electrical and gun-control systems to his credit from the mid-1870s on. Chief among his inventions were an electric range finder, electric ammunition hoists and gun-turret motors, a naval telescope mount and sight, radio systems for the control of torpedoes, and electrical control systems that kept naval batteries aimed at their targets while firing continuously.
