The current trend of converting reference material or written records to microfiche is being driven by rising costs associated with the creation and handling of hard copy documents. This trend appears to enhance our deployability of these references or documents. However, the Air Force must also consider the deployability of micrographics equipment. Most of the microfiche equipment in the Air Force inventory does not offer the flexibility called for during peacetime deployments or contingency operations due to size portability and power requirements, worldwide. This report recommends MAJCOMS should assess their current inventory of microfiche viewers and take action to correct packaging and power requirement deficiencies. Portable microfiche viewer should be specifically included in allowance source codes BBA through BBW. Basis of issue for this portable viewer should be as required for deploymentmobility or mission support. MAJCOMS should review current microfiche viewer authorizations to determine additional quantities required to support mobility tasking. New authorizations and procurements should be for the portable microfiche viewers.
