August 29 '07: Lockheed Martin has developed a new wearable technology which allows soldiers or first responders in the field to record information in real-time, a press release announced. The technology - called Wearable Intelligent Reporting Environment (WIRE) is a "spoken-language-understanding system".
The information obtained by WIRE can be transmitted over a wireless network to a data center. "WIRE is not a recording device, but an intelligent system that actually listens, understands the context of the language, and intuitively knows how to parse the observation into a variety of reports, such as the Size Activity Location Unit and Equipment (SALUTE) report."Celeste Corrado, the program manager at Lockheed said in the press release, "Users can use WIRE"s speech-based interfaces as an alternative to or with traditional graphical user interfaces to provided added flexibility and greater useability and safety. ... GPS, time, and camera are also integrated into WIRE to automate and supplement information collection."
