ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - Dec 3, 2012) - Adapx, the leader in natural user interfaces for data capture, today announced that its speech and sketch tools for mission planning and simulations will be showcased at the I/ITSEC Conference in Orlando. As warfighters work with increasingly sophisticated tools for sharing and analyzing mission plans, they also face more complex systems and interfaces that can create training burdens, delays, and distractions. The Adapx speech and sketch interfaces enable commanders to quickly create detailed courses of action by simply speaking and sketching plans on touchscreens using standard military jargon and symbols.
Speech and sketch interfaces have been integrated into a range of existing systems, including DARPA's Sketch-Thru-Plan, the Command Post of the Future (CPOF), Tactical Intelligence Ground Reporting (TIGR) system, and other systems. At I/ITSEC, for example, attendees will be able to see speech and sketch data captured in real time into ArcGIS and Google Earth, among other systems. Soldiers can point to a location on a touchscreen map and simply speak the name of a unit or an ISR observation. The Adapx software automatically creates an object in the native ISR, planning or GIS database with the proper geospatial attributes. Sketched symbols become geo-registered MIL-STD 2525 symbols.
"With our speech and sketch interfaces the standard doctrine becomes the interface through speech and sketch across multiple systems -- minimizing training needs, cognitive load, and distractions," said Ken Schneider, CEO, Adapx. "While the underlying technology is sophisticated and complex, warfighters don't get bogged down in having to learn arcane commands and systems."
Stop by for a hands-on demo at the Adapx booth (#3100) throughout I/ITSEC 2012 from 3-6 December in Orlando, FL.
Attendees can also learn about the Defense Systems Magazine special commentary on Army Modernization written by Adapx Board Member, General Peter Chiarelli. "Today's modernization investments will have a huge impact on preparing for future wars, thereby reducing what has been the historical certainty of being unprepared for the next big threat to our national security," says General Chiarelli.

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 backend systems. By simply speaking and writing, teams get instant access to structured data collected on paper, touchscreen devices, 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 and In-Q-Tel, and works with standard digital pen technology from Anoto. Learn More: http://adapx.com
