About IADS

IADS is a U.S. Army funded project originally developed to eliminate the need for paper technical manuals in the field through creating and distributing technical manuals in electronic format.

The team behind IADS has been developing IETM software since 1989. What originated as a “paperless” initiative has become a full-featured application with many features users are familiar with from other programs including navigation history and search capabilities.

IADS4 is a brand new IETM solution designed from the ground up to provide a modern, user-friendly, effective package.

IADS has a DoD Risk Management Framework (RMF) 3-year Assess Only Authorization with an expiration of 2 Dec 2024, eMASS System ID: 3809.
