Technical Library

Items listed in the technical library section are sources that have been cited on this site only.  I have no authority to provide any of those documents to you unless you make a formal request through the Army, and that wouldn't have anything to do with me anyway (unless you're local, or you know me already, in which case you know the right channels already).  If you want access to a cited TR, TM, or other technical resource, your best bet is to contact DTIC.  You may also have some luck using AHEC.

Please remember, all documents cited are unclassified, but that doesn't mean that they're available in digital form or for purchase.  For official digital copies and/or purchases, please visit DTIC.

Other Articles & Publications

These may be available for view.  You will need Adobe Reader, or another form of PDF viewer to access them.  If the file is available through a third party, I used that instead.  If a link is broken, please report it so I can update it or upload the document to this site for use.
