Developing the data products includes:
- Research and analysis of source data
- Authoring data into descriptions, explanations, procedures, lists, audits and other formats
- Developing technical illustrations and engineering drawings
- Converting existing data into specified formats
- Analyzing existing data for completeness and accuracy
- Digitizing technical data
- Developing and converting Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETMs)
Our Data management includes:
- Database creation and sustainment
- Data updating and versioning

S&K Aerospace offers technical writing services that include the creation and formatting of repair manuals, document verification, technical data management and updates. Technical documents include operational, logistics, management and financial data.
Instructional and repair manuals require research and analysis of source data, authoring data into descriptions, explanations, procedures, lists, audits and other formats. Topics cover maintenance, repair, overhaul, operations, finance, logistics and engineering technical data used in support of aircraft, missiles, or other weapon systems, including associated training, ground support equipment and mission support equipment.
Our writers incorporate hands-on experience with the equipment and machinery that will be involved in each document.
S&K Aerospace utilizes Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) tagging architecture to develop electronic technical manuals by converting paper-based technical manuals to SGML tagged electronic documents. S&K Aerospace performs this service in support of the EC-130 Compass Call Program and sustains Organizational Maintenance Manual Sets within the United States Air Force.
SGML tagging requires a thorough knowledge of the architecture's structural elements. Once tagged, documents are incorporated and sustained in a dedicated database.
Document Digitization and Conversion Services
S&K Aerospace performs the conversion of classified technical documents into an updated digital format. Documents are scanned and cleaned up using Photoshop, then converted into digital pages using FrameMaker technology. S&K Aerospace's work is driven by the complexity and volume of data for each project and is the result of expert review and analysis of each document.
S&K Aerospaces also converts photographic halftone illustrations and poor quality raster line drawings to vector graphics format. In some instances, graphics are redrawn and converted into the appropriate format.
