Iron Giant, The - 30 Years Too Early
The film is set just days after Sputnik, the first man made sattelite, is put into orbit. Yet when the G-Man first explains why he's conducting his investigation he says that"SATCOM radar" detected a large object entering the atmosphere. The acronym SATCOM stands for sattelite communications. It's doubtful that the US had its sattelite communications radar array system up and running with no sattelites in orbit yet.

Are you sure he didn't say "SACOM"? Stategic Air Command? That would be correct for the time, I believe. I didn't watch it with closed captioning on, so I couldn't say for sure.
