Abstract : Presenting military apparel specifications in a manner that effectively communicates the requirements that they embody has become an intensely complex task. However, recent advances in computer hardware and software have made it possible to develop information bases that are easily accessible even if there is a massive amount of information and if the concepts conveyed by the data are highly interconnected. Furthermore, these databases may contain any computer manageable form of information including text, graphics, or digital images. The resulting hypermedia databases bridge the communication gap by conveying related requirements through differing forms of presentation. This research report describes the development of a hypermedia presentation of the specifications for the production and evaluation of the Army men's short sleeve dress shirt and for the chemical protective suit. It also describes the process of producing a compact disc that contains both the presentation programs and the corresponding lins drawings and digital images that supplement the specifications.
