Syracuse, NY (PRWEB) December 18, 2005
CollabWorx today announced that it has been included in a new $483 million contract awarded by the US Army’s Distributed Learning, Education and Training Products program (DLETP). Karta Technologies, Inc. was awarded a position as a prime contractor for the DLETP program. CollabWorx is a member of Karta’s team which will enable our troops to receive the highest quality secure training experience and to reach any instructor or soldier anywhere, anytime via CollabWorx Secure Real-Time Collaboration (SRTC) Platform. Karta’s COO Ken Guest said, “Karta put together a great team for the DLETP program and winning gives us a great opportunity. An important part of this program is the chance to support our Nation and its great soldiers.”
CollabWorx membership in Karta Team is strengthened by bilateral relationships with team members SumTotal Systems and NGRAIN. With SumTotal, CollabWorx has a strategic partnership wherein its SRTC is being embedded within SumTotal’s Enterprise Suite including Total LMS, Total LCMS and Total VCS (virtual classroom). NGRAIN’s 3D training solution is fully integrated with CollabWorx SRTC enabling interactive multi-user collaboration over the Web by soldiers using mobile training classrooms in Iraq. In both cases CollabWorx technology augments the base solution by adding real-time training capabilities to the curricula and enabling blended learning methodology.
CollabWorx SRTC 3.0 is the only Audio/Videoconferencing solution to successfully pass the rigors of the DoD Information Technology Security Certification and Accreditation Process (DITSCAP) and receive full Authority to Operate (ATO). Collabworx previously received full ATO on the U. S. Army Training Schools (ATSC) network in Ft. Eustis, VA within US Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) on August 01, 2005. Also on that date, CollabWorx received a Certificate of Networthiness to run on US Army’s NETCOM networks.
SRTC 3.0 strengths include: complete synchronous multipoint collaboration toolset using our patented event-based logic for data sharing; Single Sign On to integrated asynchronous resources; one-click escalation from Instant Messaging to multi-user audio/video and data conferencing; fully transparent end-to-end security eliminating need for Virtual Private Networks; excellent scalability due to the absence of server-based encryption/decryption; automated firewall traversal; superior multipoint video using a fraction of the bandwidth required by competitors’ solutions; extensibility allowing added sharing of complex data such as maps, imagery, media viewers, and 2D/3D models; as well as outstanding capability of the software to be embedded in portals, Learning and Content Management Systems and other web applications.
