Abstract : The MITS Demonstration was conducted for a 6-month period between 14 December 1981 and 11 June 1982. During that period, more than 1000 microfiche containing about 22 000 personnel document images were electronically transmitted between NMPC and the Personnel Support Detachment, Anacostia. These fiche represented nearly 300 active Navy personnel records. The average turnaround time was 46 minutes between making a request and receiving a facsimile record. This time included retrieval of the master microfiche, duplication, scanning, data transmission, and facsimile recording. The average scanning/transmission time was 15 minutes per record slightly less than 8 seconds per document image. The facsimile documents were found to be useful to the recipients, but improvements in both the output quality and the system itself are necessary to ensure effective implementation of an operational configuration.
