Testing & Pub Services for Shipping/Transport Markets

DTB is proud to support our nation’s shipbuilders with high quality logistics, technical writing, illustration, and reporting services.

Our Technical Services Division supplies ship operating manuals, ship engineering manuals, and maintenance training courses to shipyards and suppliers of ship equipment, such as engines, gear boxes, control stands, and deck equipment.

Interactive data delivery starts with information – and so do we. DTB can review your existing files and provide fresh insight into how they may be re-used, updated, and converted. DTB routinely authors new information – studying and understanding your projects and requirements to provide a structured data system that grows with your needs.

DTB’s illustration and graphics services range from the conversion of legacy files to the development of “intelligent graphics” that enhance the users’ connectivity with the flow of information. We can start from scratch – creating new drawings of your parts and processes or repurposing your existing graphics files.
