US AIR FORCE TO INSTALL AT&T’S ENGINEERING DOCUMENTATION COMPUTER AIDED RETRIEVAL SYSTEM AT FIVE SITES

By CBR Staff Writer

The US Air Force has formally accepted from AT&T Co the largest laser scanning, optical disk storage and retrieval system the company has ever developed for a customer at its Sacramento Air Logistics Command base: five sites are due to install the Engineering Documentation Computer Aided Retrieval System, and when fully implemented, the system will help handle the nearly 40m engineering drawings the Air Force has on file and will save about $19m annually through faster retrieval and distribution of drawings, easier revision and updating, and reduced storage space; the others are going to Ogden, Utah; Oklahoma City; San Antonio, Texas; and Warner-Robbins, Georgia.
