The Miltrans app provides approximately 350 phrases in over 50 languages to enable front-line military personnel to communicate with non-English-speaking people. This application was based on IWT’s highly successful Voice Response Translator (VRT) used by the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Special Operations Forces and Coast Guard.
The system was also acquired in significant numbers by Canadian Forces. The application was developed in cooperation with DARPA’s Transformative Apps program.
Altogether, IWT has manufactured over 12,500 VRTs for military use. The VRT received excellent reviews from combat users, as reported through US FORSCOM command language program managers and other evaluators.
“For hot combat environments, the VRT excels,” says an Institute for Defense Analyses Report, S&T Responsiveness In Support of Current Military Operations.
The IWT Miltrans app enables operational personnel to translate basic phrases into over 50 languages commonly spoken in countries where U.S. and allied forces are deployed. These phrases support force protection, civil affairs, combat patrol, humanitarian, disaster relief, medical and other missions.

To say that there are a lot of people who are angry with the National Security Agency (NSA) right now would be an understatement. But the things that are getting the most political attention right now—such as the invasion of the privacy of American citizens and spying on the leaders of American allies—are just a fraction of the problem, according to cryptographer and Harvard University Berkman Center for Internet and Society Fellow Bruce Schneier.
At a presentation in a conference room inside the US Capitol on Friday, Schneier—who has been helping The Guardian review the trove of documents provided by Snowden—said that in its haste to "weaponize" the Internet, the NSA has broken its mechanisms of security. And those breaks—including the backdoors that the NSA convinced or coerced software developers to put into the implementations of their encryption and other security products, are so severe that it is now just a matter of time before others with less-noble causes than fighting terrorism will be able to exploit the holes the NSA has created.
Schneier said that the vulnerabilities inserted into security products by the NSA through its BULLRUN program could easily be exploited by criminals and other nation-states as well once they are discovered. And the other attacks and surveillance methods used by the NSA "will be tomorrow's doctoral theses and next week's Science Fair projects."
But with Congress focused on the woes of the Affordable Care Act, it's not clear if anyone other than those already friendly to Schneier's message was listening.
