Abstract : The U.S. Army Topographic Engineering Center (TEC) initiated this program to keep abreast of new and promising color image processing and printing methods that could be used by the Army. In 1990, new nonimpact printing technologies and derived products were rapidly emerging alongside high speed digital image processing capabilities. Linking these two areas held the promise of creating highly flexible digital demand color printing which had not been imagined 10 years earlier. This report studies the feasibility of creating a Full Color Recorder System from available technologies, hardware and software. The next three years of R and D under this contract produced results which have been adopted by the Army into the baseline QRMP system; a system designed to provide troops' real-time terrain graphic images in the field. This final report documents the rationale, history, processes, technologies and results of this program. Color, Reproduction, Image processing, Digital, Scanner
