ST ViewScan Installed on US Aircraft Carrier

NORTHBROOK, IL – ST Imaging ( is proud to announce that the ST ViewScan has been installed onboard a second US Navy aircraft carrier. With their need for an easy to use, space saving microfiche scanner that is able to retrieve microfiche images instantly, the ST ViewScan was the perfect fit to deliver crisp and clear confidential images.

The ST ViewScan is an easy to use viewer/scanner that can be operated with limited training. With the ST ViewScan program running the operator simply places the microfiche on the glass, adjusts the microfiche to line up with the camera and the ST ViewScan displays the desired image on the monitor. This is made even easier by the small size of the camera which allows you to see the microfiche and quickly line up the desired image.

The small space taken up by the ST ViewScan was also critical in this instance. An aircraft carrier might look enormous but every inch is extremely valuable. The compact design of the ST ViewScan made it capable to fit in without taking space away from other important machinery.

Dependability and reliability were other important factors to the US Navy in choosing a microfiche viewer. The ST ViewScan has been able to work days on end without the unit failing. “They can’t stop at a hardware store to pick up a part so they must make it on board,” said Bruce Rennecker, Vice President of ST Imaging. This is a mission critical feature as sailors would need to access their documents with the ST ViewScan around the clock.

We are happy and proud to have our product selected to be on board a second US Navy aircraft carrier and look forward to many more years working with the US Navy to supply the highest quality products for their microfiche needs.
