Effective 1 December 2012 we will no longer provide ORDATA on CD. The technology is outdated and will not run on pc's with operating systems newer than Windows XP. We are actively seeking funding to upgrade the database to the latest technology. We apologize for the inconvenience.
ORDATA is an ordnance identification system. The user enters available information and the database searches based on those parameters.
ORDATA was produced many years ago using the best information and database structure available at the time. Although it has been updated and expanded since, most of the mine data is unchanged and a number of errors were present.
CISR/MAIC in conjunction with C King Associates, updated the ORDATA database, covering the most commonly used mines in greater detail.
The revised version of the mines section (funded by the Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate Humanitarian Demining Program), achieves the following:
- Creates a "living" system that can be updated continuously
- Eliminates misleading and potentially dangerous errors
- Supplemenst the existing data with more information
- Reorganizes the data structure to make it more useful
- Allow more powerful and flexible searching
- The revised mines section covers most of the more common mines, and it has the ability to add more at any time. It also paves the way to update and expand the sections covering other types of ordnance in a similar way.
The database is hosted by CISR. Neither the US Navy nor CISR endorses or is otherwise responsible for the ORDATA program. All questions or comments should be directed to email@example.com
