Information Dynamics Corp., Reading, MA.
A five-year development program plan was drawn up for the Defense Documentation Center (DDC). This report presents in summary form the results of various surveys and reviews performed in selected areas of micrographics to support the efforts of the program's planners. Exhibits of supporting documentation are presented, together with a discussion of areas where significant technical developments may occur during the period of interest covered by the program. The status of selected areas of micrographic technology, equipment development, and micrographic utilization is analyzed with reference to the microfiche system requirements of the DDC. The research and development activities of several of the major microfilm equipment and material suppliers are reviewed. An analysis of user reaction to, and acceptance of, the microfiche as an information communication medium is also presented. (JY)
