Technical Data Services

Value Added Support for all of Your

Technical Data Requirements

In early 2000, the Department Of Defense mandated all U.S. military commands to begin transitioning their legacy technical data from paper to a digital format. The cost to print, warehouse, and distribute paper-based technical manuals and related technical material was becoming onerous. At the same time, the rate of weapons systems upgrades and changes was making it very difficult to keep the paper-based technical data in sync with the weapons systems it supported.

Support for today’s digital based technical data environment requires in-depth knowledge of DoD policies, processes, and the enabling technologies. Just a few short years ago, DoD technical data in PDF format was the norm. Today, these PDF-based technical data environments have given way to major weapons systems’ requirements for XML-based Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETMs) that operate on a PC-based platform.

IETMs bring a whole new support paradigm for technical data management, update, distribution, and archiving. Major weapons systems are fielding IETMs and the need for life cycle support for these systems is becoming critical.
