Pagination or Media Count:
A vast amount of information about todays United States Air Force is available from numerous sources. Professional military education schools, Air Staff agencies, and many Department of Defense offices identified the need for a single comprehensive source of data about the active duty US Air Force. The organizations requesting the single source product range from military professional organizations with highly trained staffs to organizations training their students on basic Air Force facts. The Air Force ToolBook project team researched and authored a multimedia encyclopedia called a ToolBook on the current active duty US Air Force. Material included in the ToolBook is similar to that presented in the Air Force Almanac edition of Air Force Magazine but to greater detail. The ToolBook includes airpower doctrine, roles and missions, structure of the major commands, types of hardware, base support services, plus selected future hardware and applications. The projects scope does not include historical information that will be available in another application. Concurrently, the project team designed an Internet World Wide Web WWW site with similar information and scope. The WWW site is complete but requires final Air Force approval before release to the public. The ToolBook is designed to run on a double-speed CD-ROM on a 48633 or higher class desktop computer with a high color 32K or 64K colors SVGA display. Although the ToolBook can be viewed with a 256-color display, some of the pictures may not display correctly. In addition, a sound card is recommended for audio clip portions. All information in the ToolBook is unclassified. This product is designed as a reference tool for random access, not as a one-time read and put away book. This ToolBook combines the most current information about the US Air Force into a clear, concise, multimedia based format
