These additional CAM documents describe aspects of the instrument in some detail and only need to be read for a deep understanding of a particular aspect. But be aware that the reports sometimes reflect "work in progress" and may have been superseded.

See also the proceedings of several ISO Conferences and Meetings for specific instrument related topics.
