Adapx Awarded New DARPA Contract for Deep Green III to Further Integrate Speech & Sketch Interfaces Into Command and Control (C2) Systems(December 05, 2011)
SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/05/11 -- Adapx, the company that is changing the way mobile teams collect data and collaborate, today announced a new $1.65M contract with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to build advanced speech and sketch interfaces for Command and Control (C2) Systems. Capturx Speech & Sketch enables Warfighters to quickly create, share, and analyze digital courses of action (COAs) for faster and improved decision making without the data-capture obstacles of today's complex C2 and C4ISR interfaces.
Deep Green III is the latest phase of DARPA's Deep Green Program, which is focused on decision support systems that commanders can use to create potential COAs for simulated outcomes. Adapx is contributing to the Deep Green Program's "Sketch-through-plan" capabilities, which enable commanders to easily draw up plans by speaking and sketching military symbols on digital map displays, which Deep Green interprets and uses to populate operations orders. Adapx has contributed its advanced multimodal (speech and sketch) technology to prior phases of the program through DARPA contractors BAE and SAIC.
"We're very pleased to continue our work with DARPA in Deep Green Phase III," said Ken Schneider, CEO of Adapx. "Adapx is focused on providing natural user interface solutions for command and control to reduce data entry obstacles for Warfighters so they can improve planning and decision-making."
Capturx Software from Adapx speeds data capture and collaboration by turning natural speech, sketch, and handwriting into actionable data in Microsoft Office, SharePoint, CRM, ERP, GIS, C2, C4ISR systems and many other back-end systems. By simply speaking and writing, teams get instant access to structured data collected on paper, touchscreens, mobile devices, and wall displays. A range of enterprises and agencies speed workflows and reduce risk by using Capturx to bypass data transcription from paper and cumbersome keyboard- and menu-driven interfaces. Adapx has strategic relationships with Microsoft, ESRI, In-Q-Tel, and works with standard digital pen technology from Anoto. www.adapx.com
