Adapx Invited to Speak at the AUSA ILW Mission Command Symposium

KANSAS CITY, MO--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2013) - Adapx announced that its Vice President of DoD and Federal Solutions, Scott Lind, is speaking at the AUSA ILW Mission Command Symposium today in Kansas City at 3:20PM. Lind will address how to implement mission command across the Army with the recommendation that current user interfaces advance to be speech and sketch centric and doctrinally-based. 

"The speech and sketch user interfaces from Adapx are game changers for training, mission planning, simulations, logistics, and health care," said General Peter W. Chiarelli (Ret).

Mission command and simulation systems are too hard to use -- impeding their effectiveness. With Adapx's Speech & Sketch User Interface, system specific training is eliminated enabling trained soldiers to now use doctrine to interact with Army systems.

Speech & Sketch enables soldiers to create standard military symbols and plans in existing Army systems by simply speaking commands or sketching on Android tablets, handhelds, vehicle displays, and wall displays. The interface automatically fuses the two actions and completes all of the system-related menu and keyboard tasks once required of the soldier. As a result, the spoken jargon and sketches become digital courses of action and MIL-STD-2525b/c/d symbols fully integrated into CPOF, Google Earth, TIGR, JCR, and JBC-P systems.

Five separate divisions have given the interface very high approval ratings: 3 during Army TCM sponsored User Juries at Fort Campbell, Fort Carson, and Fort Bragg, another at the Army's Network Integration Exercise as well as during an independent review from soldiers in the 7th Infantry Division at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
