Case Institute Symbolic Assembly Program for the UNIVAC series (all of the series, as opposed to single machines).

Written by Mel Conway at Case, under the direction of Frank Way, sister project to CASE SOAP

(Way refers to their UNIVAC I: "We have also a Univac I, with which I assume most people are familiar; it may be roughly described as several gallons of mercury surrounded by peripheral equipment. Since it is water-cooled, one might expect that the overflow light has some real meaning attached to it.")
