In an effort to standardize digital development, acquisition, and delivery of equipment maintenance and operations information and training materials in consistent and identifiable chunks, the U.S. Army created the MIL-STD-2361.

It is intended to facilitate the automated storage, retrieval, interchange, and processing of publications from varying data sources. It was developed to ensure compliance with existing DoD, Army, and international policy and requirements.

MIL-STD-2361 establishes the requirements for U.S. Army digital publications. It is available for use by all Governmental Departments and Agencies, and by industry. It applies to Army publication types including, administrative, training and doctrine, and technical equipment publications.

It also addresses Electronic and Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (ETM/IETM) and Interactive Courseware. It does not include Flight Manuals.

It is an XML grammar to describe the logical structure and content of Army publications It organizes content about the product into chunks called work packages of content about the equipment.
