Paper Abstract

SARDE project aims to replace a 5 million pages technical documentation, partly reproduced in 2000 sites, by a fully electronic storage, retrieval and display system. This system architecture is as follow : 1/ the acquisition of documents (their format is A4 to AO) is done by scanners ; the documents are then processed ans compressed, 2) the document storage uses several THOMSON GIGADISC, supported by a dedicated architecture, able to provide high efficiency, great reliability and easy exploitation ; juke-boxes can be used ; 3) the documents are accessed by a classical data base ; 4) the documents are sent to remote users through 64 Kbits links ; 5) remote users are provided with a workstation, consisting of a high definition screen (4 million pixels, 19 " size), a powerful microcomputer, a small image printer, local disk and network interface. A prototype system is to be built for 1985, and experimented in real context with end users.
