Aardvark Tactical's supply sets are sought after by our nation's service members abroad because they include the best of both worlds: Integrated component configurations that meet critical needs and superior products designed with direct feedback from warfighters in the field carrying out both tactical and humanitarian missions
Annapolis, MD (PRWEB) May 29, 2008
Voxtec International, Inc., developer of the world's most trusted language translation systems, announces that it has partnered with Aardvark Tactical, Inc., a leading tactical supplier and systems integrator for all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, to provide its Phraselator P2 handheld translation system to service members deploying to the Middle East in support of the Global War on Terror (GWOT).
"The Phraselator has been selected by the Department of Defense to support several Rules of Engagement within the scope of current Military operations," said Jon Becker, President of Aardvark. "With accurate translation capabilities at their command, Soldiers can complete their missions more easily and securely."
The Phraselator is included in several mission-specific, tactical supply sets available from Aardvark to properly outfit service members assigned to specific Rules of Engagement. The sets featuring the Phraselator P2 include: Force Protection Capability Set for U.S. Marine Corps; Brigade Combat Team (BCT) Set for the U.S. Army; and the Escalation of Force (EOF) set for the U.S. Army. Soldiers and Marines provided with these sets will be able to use the Phraselator P2 for critical communication needs in a variety of scenarios, including crowd control, riot control, convoy operations and checkpoint operations.
The Phraselator P2 allows users to command thousands of key phrases, instruction steps and words, which have been translated into foreign languages by fluent speakers, providing them with reliable, tactical, one-way translation capabilities in several key languages spoken prominently throughout the region including: Arabic, Dari, Iraqi, Kurmanji, Pashto, and Urdu. Phrases are clearly broadcast on the system's weatherproof speaker or through an attached loudspeaker. The Phraselator P2 also allows users to record several hours of speech in a speaker's native language for later translation, making it a valuable interview tool.
"Aardvark Tactical's supply sets are sought after by our nation's service members abroad because they include the best of both worlds: Integrated component configurations that meet critical needs and superior products designed with direct feedback from warfighters in the field carrying out both tactical and humanitarian missions," said John T.
