A few weeks ago, thanks to the hard work of the Still Picture Processing Team and ARC staff, our largest series of digital photography was made available online through the Archival Research Catalog (ARC). This series, “Combined Military Service Digital Photographic Files, compiled 1982-2007” (ARC Identifier 6274097), contains 269,667 JPEG images of numerous military activities from the Defense Visual Information Center (now the Defense Imagery Management Operations Center). Photographs were created by photographers of the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps and include images of military vessels, aircraft, vehicles, facilities, military officers, Department of Defense (DOD) personnel, military units, training, weapons, and various military operations and exercises. The majority of the images in this series were taken between approximately 1980 and 2007, but there are some taken prior to 1980. Most of the images taken prior to 2000 are digital reproductions of original negatives located in the series “Combined Military Service Photographic Files, compiled 1982-2007” (ARC Identifier 898707). The first born-digital images were taken in 1993, but it wasn’t until 2000 when the majority taken were born-digital. Below are some examples of images you will find online.
