The Navy Standard Compressed Aeronautical Chart Database

Interface control criteria for exchange of chart image data from NOARLs Map Data Formatting Facility to Fleets aircraft mission planning systems and digital moving map systems are described. The Compressed Aeronautical Chart database consists of compressed and otherwise transformed aeronautical chart images stored on Compact Disk-Read Only Memory optical disks. The Compressed Aeronautical Chart is created from standard mapping, charting, and geodesy products distributed by the Defense Mapping Agency. Development and creation of this library is part of a NOARL effort to provide the Fleet with Navy standard digital mapping, charting and geodesy products when the DMAs products cannot be used in their original form. The Compressed Aeronautical Chart data is now a mission requirement for the successful flights of an increasing number of U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps aircraft. This report is required by the Naval Air Systems Command in order to ensure that future aircraft mission planning systems and digital moving map systems are built to be compatible with this Navy standard database. It is also required as an engineering aid in developing future databases that will be used with the Compressed Aeronautical Chart.
