Akimeka and VoxGen Join Forces
VoxGen was awarded a contract from Akimeka LLC, a US developer of medical applications and information displays for situational awareness. The project is sponsored by the Office of Naval Research, which constantly seeks science and technology for the defense domain.
Akimeka is developing a system for medical surveillance and status reporting of deployed medical units. Under the terms of the agreement, VoxGen will be developing a prototype of a multimodal solution for integrating speech with the standard keyboard and mouse interfaces of the situational awareness application.
The prototype solution also introduces voice-automated reports and alerts that allow deployed medical personnel, with no access to computer terminals, to send and receive vital information that can then be made available on the system.
