Aircraft Specifications on Magneto Optical Disk
The RAF approached us with a unique problem - how to read their Pioneer magneto optical media and convert the technical specifications into PDF.  They had a huge archive of unclassified technical specification for the E03D Sentry engines.  The aircraft uses four CFM 56 2A-3 turbofans. 
The E-3D Sentry, known to the RAF as the AEW1, is based on the commercial Boeing 707-320B aircraft, which has been extensively modified and updated to accommodate modern mission systems. Mission endurance is approximately 11 hours (over 5000nmls), although this can be extended by air - to- air refuelling. The E-3D is the only aircraft in the RAF’s inventory capable of air-to-air refuelling by both the American ‘flying-boom’ system and the RAF’s ‘probe-and-drogue’ method.
 
The RAF engineers had an extensive library of Pioneer Magneto Optical DEC702 5.25" 654Mb disks,which had been used to catalogue technical specifications for the engines.  However, they had no way of accessing these legacy files and the format was proprietary image format.  
 
We were able to access the data and copy it bit for bit.  Thereafter, our engineers wrote specific handlers to convert the images to PDF.

"Thank you so much for all your help - Data Recovery Specialists are a real life saver!  I do not know what I would have done without the data you recovered.  We would have probably had to re-record all the location shots, which would have been time consuming and very expensive"  BBC Wales
