The basis of this study is the requirement for a common, machine-readable data block on all reconnaissance and mapping file in accordance with MIL-STD-782B. This study evaluates the effectiveness of the present operational data block readerwriter DBRW systems and identifies the research and development currently sponsored by the military services. Several new devices, made available by recent advances in the state-of-the-art, are evaluated to determine their potential for improved DBRW systems, and a comparison is made of those devices which have been developed to the phototype stage. An analysis is made of present and predicted DBRW systems requirements and the main limitations and operational constraints associated with meeting these requirements are identified. Recommendations are made as to the steps necessary for developing improved DBRW systems for current and future use. Author
