Summary:
This collection consists of microfilmed translations of documents which were captured in Germany and compiled and microfilmed by the US Navy. The documents cover a variety of topics including long-range bombers, aircraft propulsion, infrared research, optics, turbomachines, flutter research, torpedoes, radar, as well as other technical topics.
Scope and Contents:
This collection is consists of two rolls of microfilm containing translations of documents which were captured in Germany and compiled and microfilmed by the US Navy.

Note: The digital images in this finding aid were repurposed from scans made by an outside contractor for a commercial product and may show irregular cropping and orientation in addition to color variations resulting from damage to and deterioration of the original objects.
Arrangement:
The documents in this collection were all assigned document numbers by the Navy prior to microfilming. Unfortunately the system used to create these numbers is not known, but it is a three-part system consisting of one alphabetic character and two numeric groups. The alphabetic character seems to be a general subject code, which appears to be as follows:

A -- Aeronautics or Aerodynamics

E -- Electronics

M -- Metallurgy or Materials

O -- Ordnance

The first numeric group appears to be a sequential number and the second numeric group the last two digits of the year in which the document was cataloged. Thus document number A 3074 46 would relate generally to aeronautics or aerodynamics and was either the 3074th document cataloged overall in 1946 or the 3074th aeronautics document cataloged in 1946.

This collection consists of short (one document long) strips of 35mm microfilm compiled into two 100 foot rolls. The origin of this compilation is not known, and there is no apparent order to the compilation. The microfilm roll listing which follows lists the documents in the order they appear in the compilation.
Historical note:
In the final days of World War II the advancing Allied armies captured a large number of documents from the German and Japanese governments. These documents were taken to various sites in Europe and the United States for evaluation and appraisal. Those documents considered valuable were microfilmed for preservation.
