MEDALS - Military Engineering Data Asset Locator System

General Information

The Military Engineering Data Asset Locator System (MEDALS) is a web-based indexing system that provides the ability to locate engineering drawings throughout the Department of Defense (DOD) community. MEDALS serves as the central index for DOD technical data. While MEDALS does not contain digital images of the technical drawings, it does provide the location of the images. The drawings are warehoused, maintained, and distributed by image repositories throughout the United States (U.S.). The image repositories supply MEDALS with technical drawing indexing information which MEDALS, in turn, supplies to its customers. Using MEDALS ensures that the user has located ALL versions of the drawing at ALL locations.
