  • ftp sites/responses

    Dear subscribers,

    One week ago, I sent a message looking for ftp sites to get technical
    reports. It seems very difficult to get this sort of document by this way. The
    sum up of the responses I got follows. Thanks a lot to all people who answer me
    and especially to Chris and Pascale.


    My message was :

    >Dear suscribers,
    >Could anyone tell me if there are some ftp sites or databases where it is
    >possible to get some technical reports in the field of biomechanics. I'm
    >particularly interrested with some technical reports from Wright Patersson
    >Force Base (Ohio).
    >I will sum up the responses.
    >Thank you to those who will answer me.

    I sent email to Librarian at Air Force Institute of Technology (part of
    Wright-Patterson AFB) as this is her reply - no luck unfortunately.

    --reply follows--
    Allan, I don't know of any good Gopher or FTP sites for Wright-Patt tech
    reports. Wish I did! My own organization, the Air Force Institute of
    Technology (just a small part of Wright-Patterson), has a small
    experimental FTP site with a whopping 6 tech reports from 1993 in it, but
    that's all that I'm aware of. Our system administrators are busy with
    other projects and don't have plans to expand the tech report archives
    right now.

    I'm not sure if there's another order channel in France, but the best
    public source for information on Air Force tech reports (unlimited
    distribution, unclassified ones, that is) in the U.S. is the National
    Technical Information Service (NTIS), run by the U.S Dept. of Commerce.

    Dear Stephane,

    Not sure about ftp Dbs, but I have a Wright Patterson AFB release AD 710
    622 on weight, volume & CoM. If you tell me what you require I could fax
    you the relevant bits.

    Hello Stephane;

    At Wright Patterson AFB, you should start with;

    Dr. Ted Knox, Branch Chief
    Wright Patterson Air Force Base
    Div. of Bio Communications
    Bio Engineering Div.
    PHONE: (513) 255-3122
    FAX: (513) 255-2019

    I know they are NOT hooked up to BIOMCH-L as of yet. I will be
    sending them information on how to go about getting line. I do
    know that they have a four camera Selspot Motion Analysis System
    and seem to be very pleased.

    Good Luck!

    Bonjour Stephane,

    Je ne peux pas t'offrir d'aide concernant les sites ftp mais j'ai acces
    a certains des rapports techniques du groupe du Wright Paterson Air Force
    Base. Si tu sais quelle est l'information dont tu as besoin, n'hesite pas
    a demander, je t'aiderai si je le peux.
