As a means of improving updated manual
availability and reducing stowage space, NAVAIR
placed numerous maintenance and illustrated
parts breakdown manuals on 16-mm microfilm.
This process was later found not to be cost
effective or practical for most activities. Very few
activities today use MIARS, and eventually it will
become a thing of the past. For this reason
MIARS will not be covered in depth by this
TRAMAN. For more information concerning
MIARS, refer to NAVAIR 00-25-100.
Microfiche is a film negative card (fiche).
Fiche cards are used for many purposes
throughout the Navy wherever microfilming may
be used to reduce amounts of paper documents.
