This is a simple way to quickly search through all of Periscope's holdings or to narrow your search to parts of their collections. By selecting "Military Periscope" from the dropdown menu, you will search all of Military Periscope's databases. This can produce fairly unorganized results.  If you're looking for a particular weapon system, just type in the name of the weapon system. and choose "Weapons Only Database" from the dropdown menu. If you're looking for a particular country, select the "Nations Only Database" from the dropdown menu.


You can also browse through the collections by clicking on any of the categories on the left side of the page.


Military Periscope is a good source for public domain (not under copyright) images of weapons systems.


DTIC'S PUBLIC STINET DATABASE

ACCESSING DTIC's ADVANCED SEARCH

DTIC's Advanced Search is available at the following url: http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/search/advanced_search.html. It is a public database, accessible from any computer with an internet connection. You can also find a link to it on CARL's Military Databases page at http://usacac.army.mil/cac2/cgsc/carl/databases/db_data.asp



USING DTIC's ADVANCED SEARCH

DTIC's Advanced Search is in a period of transition as it continues to add search capabilities. When the search functionality becomes more stable, this tutorial will be updated with screenshots and search strategies.

Search Tips
When searching, use the word "AND" to limit your results. Use the word "OR" to expand your results.


Truncation
Use the * to truncate words. The * will find any any combination of letters after the root of the word.

For example: comput* will retrieve records with the following words:

compute
computer
computers
computing
computes

Remember it will also retrieve words you might not want like:

computation
computations
