Want MIL specs in Cut & Paste format to include in our process specs


We are in the market for a software package that provide mil-specs in exportable format. Additionally, it would be really nice if these mil-specs already came with generic/standard processing steps so we would only need to modify rather than create from scratch.

Our goal is to import this information into our in-house database application. We've seem some software solutions, but the mil-spec information is stored as a graphical image (and therefore not exportable) and there is nothing we've seen so far that provides any kind of processing information.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Check with Philadelphia office. The same people that will sell you hard copy very probably sell it on CD. Local AF Base has had it on CD from somewhere for a couple of years now.

The private services that sell microfilm copies undoubetdly sell it on CD now. Sorry, I can not help you with a name. Do not work any more for the folks that had the copies I used.

Hi. This inquiry is a bit old and doesn't reflect the situation anymore. To get MIL specs onto the internet quickly, they just took photos of them, and the "spec" was just a graphic image. But these days I believe all Mil specs on the internet are now text based.

But we are back to the old "photos" approach on some old public domain books on the internet.
