Technical Reports and Standards

Heavily Requested Technical Reports Series in LC General Collections

Historical Note: Following right behind Allied combat troops into occupied areas, representatives of the British Intelligence Objectives Subcommittee (BIOS), the Combined Intelligence Objectives Subcommittee (CIOS), and the U.S. Field Intelligence Agency, Technical (FIAT), visited German manufacturing plants, research laboratories, and other war-related facilities to interview managers, scientists, and engineers. After collecting relevant documents, these groups wrote technical briefs on individual subjects, production processes and new technologies. They also prepared reports on whole industries - notably the German dye industry - and on construction projects, such as German underground factories. Although many of these were added to the PB series right after the war, later declassified documents can only be found in the reports listed below.
