Abstract : The overall objective of the Department of Defense Computer-aided Acquisition and Logistic Support (CALS) Program is to integrate the design, manufacturing, and logistic functions through the efficient application of computer technology. The National Bureau of Standards has been funded since Spring 1986 to recommend a suite of industry standards for system integration and digital data transfer, and to accelerate their implementation. A major FY87 thrust was the completion of initial documentation of the high-priority standards required in the CALS environment. Volumes one, two and four provide a collection of the final reports presented to the CALS Policy Office. They cover such topics as text, product data, data management, raster compression, media, conformance testing, and graphics. This volume specifically addresses Computer Graphics Metafile (CGM) registration requirements for CALS.... CALS, CGEM, CGM, DoD, Graphics, Interpress, Postscript, Registration.
