KODAK Scanners Power DocumentATM’s Secure Mobile Scan Center in Digital Transformation of NASA Langley Research Center


Rochester, NY .- With its 800,000 item card catalog now fully digitized and searchable, NASA’s Langley Research Center expects to provide new levels of productivity and collaboration to its scientists and engineers. In 2008, Langley utilized DocumentATM’s Secure Mobile Scan Platform, driven by KODAK i600 Series Scanners, KODAK i780 Scanners and KODAK i1860 Scanners, to convert its paper based reference catalog into a powerful, online research portal. With this system, Langley’s technical community can now access the entire electronic database directly from their desktop.

The Secure Mobile Scan Platform, also known as “The Scan Van,” provides corporate and government operations with an on demand solution for digitally capturing large volumes of paper based documents and records. The platform, specifically designed to deal with the critical nature of corporate and government information, is deployable to any location. Through the effective use of document imaging equipment and software, the platform provides clients with an onsite, on demand document service that meets regulatory guidelines, standards for privacy and security and eliminates costs associated with capital purchases.

“The DocumentATM staff has done an excellent job of converting NASA Langley’s old card file,” said Sue Miller, Documents Manager, NASA Langley Research Center, during the process in August of last year. “We are very pleased with their commitment to detail with scanning each card.”

The project required DocumentATM to capture specific information, including titles, authors, source and subject, from each record of the Langley Historical Aerospace Card Catalog. The index represents hundreds of thousands of aeronautics and aerospace papers and reports from all over the world. NASA’s Langley Research Center consistently accesses this information in its developments for furthering the exploration of space, increasing knowledge about the Earth and making air travel safer through aeronautics testing. Following its completion, DocumentATM initiated work within NASA and other government agencies on similar tasks.

“DocumentATM emphasizes three tenets to clients—security, speed and accuracy to minimize physical risk to documents, photographs and other hardcopy materials,” said Debora Mason, President and Chief Operating Officer, DocumentATM, Inc. “Scanning speed and high image quality provided by KODAK Scanners form a cornerstone to our business. These capabilities enable us to deliver top notch results when working with prized national treasures such as the Langley Historical Aerospace Card Catalog materials.”

Within its Secure Mobile Scan Platform, the DocumentATM team utilizes multiple APPLE MAC PRO workstations, servers, KODAK i1860 Scanners and an encrypted high speed satellite uplink to direct its high volume document conversion processes. The suite of i1860 Scanners enable the Mobile Document Scan Platform to capture more than 3,400 images per minute and each Mobile Platform holds the capability of scanning more than 2 million pages per month.

“This project demonstrates how an organization can utilize production capture to enhance a document based system through digitally powered improvements that improve ease of use and boost overall productivity,” said Tony Barbeau, Vice President, Marketing, Business Solutions and Services, Eastman Kodak Company. “Kodak will continue to work with service providers, such as DocumentATM, to develop capture solutions that help to maintain and protect critical information for organizations in both the private and public sector.”
