Abstract : This volume contains a separate package for each of the ten technologies. Each of those packages consists of six parts which are briefly described below. The cover sheet specifies the technology and lists the sub-technologies that have been identified and investigated. The CTL number listed with each sub-technology is the basic code used to store, sort and recover each record within the database. As explained in the first volume, the CTL number is related to the numbering system employed in the DOD Militarily Critical Technology List. The second part of each package is the Summary Report, which, in this case, lists all of the unclassified entries contained in that technology database. It provides some key information about each entry, including the CTL and sheet numbers, the achievement rank, whether the entry is a primary or secondary one, and the name of the principal organization involved. The third part of each technology package is the Parameter Names Report, which identifies the different parameters, for each sub-technology, that have been used to evaluate its status in Japan. It lists the parameter name, the units of measure, and the direction of improvement, for each of up to six parameters, for each sub-technology. The fourth and fifth part of each package are the database entry reports, for primary and secondary records respectively. They contain the parameter values and notes extracted from the source materials used in this investigation. Volume 1 contains an explanation of how primary and secondary reports are cross-referenced through the REF number in the database.
