WIDE-FORMAT COPIER IN RUGGEDIZED CONTAINER FILLS MAPPING NEEDS IN THE FIELD

 ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 18 ~PRNewswire~ -- A portable wide-format copier contained in a commercial ruggedized transit case that is customized to meet the field mapping needs of the military has been announced by Xerox (NYSE: XRX) Engineering Systems.
 The Large-Scale Tactical Document Copier consists of a wide-format copier than can reproduce area terrain maps and mission overlays up to 36 inches wide onto plain paper, vellum or clear film for the purpose of coordinating battlefield operations. The equipment package consists of the Xerox 2515 Engineering Copier contained in a ruggedized transit case which also serves as an operational platform for the copier. In addition, the copier transit case contains a servicing vacuum, operations manual, operational support accessories and a storage area for consumable supplies. The copier works with standard tactical generators providing 115 VAC, 60 Hz power.
 "The effective distribution of information is critical to the military in coordinating battlefield operations," said Capt. Randy S. Taylor, 10th Divarty Signal Officer. "This product provides the capability to quickly reproduce the area terrain maps and up-to-date mission overlays that are required to respond effectively to changing battlefield conditions."
 Traditionally, military personnel would place clear overlays on top of existing area maps and manually draw updated information onto mission overlays as required. Mission overlays typically contain information on unit positions, supply routes and artillery positions in addition to other critical battlefield information. The Large-Scale Tactical Document Copier provides the capability to reproduce these overlays quickly for field distribution. In addition, the copier provides the capability to reproduce current or updated area maps. It can accept original documents up to 1~8 inch thick for reproduction.
 During Operation Desert Storm, the Xerox 2510 Engineering Copier, the predecessor to the Xerox 2515, was used to assist in coordinating battlefield operations. The 2515 also was used by the Army in its recent rebuilding efforts in Homestead, Fla., following the destruction caused by Hurricane Andrew.
 "Following Desert Storm, we supported the Army's Communications- Electronics Command located at Fort Monmouth, N.J., by providing a large-format tactical copier to meet a critical field demand," said Jane Hollen, vice president, general manager, engineering reprographics, Xerox Engineering Systems. "By providing our 2515 copier in the ruggedized case, we were able to meet the needs of the military immediately."
 To support copier operations, the Xerox Cutter 1 is available to cut quickly and accurately paper, vellum or film roll media. A customized transit case serves as an operational platform for the cutter.
 The commercial transit cases for transporting and operating the copier and cutter were designed to meet the day-to-day rigors of field use. The cases were designed and manufactured by Hardigg Industries, located in South Deerfield, Mass. Hardigg has specialized in ruggedized military cases for more than 30 years. Elements of design include interior cushioning systems, ease of packing and unpacking, ease of handling, and durability of the shell.
 Xerox Engineering Systems is the world's leader in engineering copiers, fax machines, printers, plotters, associated peripherals, software and engineering document management systems.
 The cost of the Large-Scale Tactical Document Copier is $7,720. The cost includes the 2515 copier, copier transit case, service vacuum and support accessories. The cost of the Xerox Cutter 1 and associated transit case is $3,256. All copier components are contained in Common Table of Allowances (CTA) 50-909 and available for purchase using General Services Administrative (GSA) contracts.
