S1000D for the Military

Streamline Your Entire Technical Documentation Process … With a Proven Solution that Adapts to Your Changing Business Needs

Maintaining military equipment requires dozens of technical manuals for each piece of equipment, including training manuals, operational procedures, maintenance manuals, parts list, and much more. The massive amount of files, graphics, technical data, cross-references, and overlapping information that needs to be maintained and verified for the military’s technical manuals can be an overwhelming task to manage.

S1000D can dramatically simplify the entire process. S1000D provides a powerful framework for creating, maintaining, and distributing technical documentation. That’s why it’s the specification that is commonly used for technical publications for aviation, marine, land, and commercial equipment.

Add Simplicity to Complex Documentation


There is a significant amount of cross-referenced and overlapping information throughout the various maintenance and operational manuals for equipment – and even across similar equipment. The duplication of information is one of the biggest challenges in technical documentation, and it represents the biggest area of human errors, wasted time, and associated costs.

This is one of the key strengths of S1000D. It essentially breaks an extremely complex process, into easy-to-use building blocks.

Existing documents and technical content are broken down into single-source pieces of information, called “data modules”. Each data module contains only the information and instructions required for one specific task. This allows for easier management of information, greater quality control, and significantly increased flexibility in the way you reuse, publish, and distribute your documentation.

S1000D defines all aspects of the technical content throughout all the different phases of a product life-cycle, and it provides the framework for all of the integration points required to make technical content effective. It bypasses the common restrictions of your current documentation process, and allows you to publish into various different outputs such as hardcopies, PDFs, websites, and Interactive Manuals — from one source.
