CamoScience™ App Instantly Transforms Your Photos Into Custom Next-Gen Camouflage Designs
NASA vet and MW Research and Development create a new type of app for Smartphones, Mobile Touchscreens and the iPad 2
AUSA SYMPOSIUM AND EXPOSITION, FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Feb. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MW Research and Development, Inc., pioneer in immersive training and camouflage innovation, is set to release a new app for smartphones and mobile touchscreens -- including the iPad 2 -- that transforms photos into instant camouflage designs.
CamoScience™ is a photo application that turns site-specific photography into what its inventor calls "Photographic Camouflage."
"'Photographic Camouflage' is the term I coined four years ago to describe any 'camera-derived' camo design," said K. Dominic Cincotti, MW Research and Development President. "Photographic Camouflage is the new field of advanced CCD, because of this process and the precision blending it affords, across the range of our patent-pending technologies."
MW Research and Development has teamed with Hunter Research & Technology's founder Dr. Craig Hunter, NASA engineer by day and paradigm-shifting, Augmented-Reality app developer by night. The already legendary team of brothers - Todd and Craig Hunter - are, in uber-tech circles, renowned as the minds behind the #1 selling U.S. Navigation App Sept. 2010 - The Theodolite App for the iPhone 4.
CamoScience™ is a new type of hybrid app, blending Hunter's advanced understanding of app development and the groundbreaking site-specific Photographic Camouflage created by MW Research and Development.
CamoScience™ is "yet another example of Geo-Spatial Intelligence -- or GEOINT -- used to produce real-world products by MW Research and Development," Cincotti said.
CamoScience™ will also let users design Photographic Camouflage into a touch-screen grip for the iPad 2. Touchscreen grips provide functional, hand-traction grip to keep your iPad 2 safely in your grasp while mobile. This is accomplished with an extremely thin, adhesive graphic "skin," with a unique frictional, micro-terrain.
CamoScience™, to be released in April, arose from two MW Research and Development patent-pending technologies, Photo-Real™ and Photo-Stealth™, new camouflage processes introduced in 2007 that utilize site-specific photography from the intended operating environment, designed initially to show to U.S. Special Forces.
"Photographic Camouflage and CamoScience™ can apply not only to the military, but also to commercial uses for hunters, outdoorsmen, and custom clothing designers," Cincotti said. "Camouflage is more popular than ever."
The Army's recent transformative decision to begin to issue smartphones and touchscreen devices to soldiers "dovetails with MW Research and Development's coming slate of applications, the first of which is CamoScience™," Cincotti said. "We've always asked the trainers and the operators, 'What solutions do you need? What problems can we solve?' -- and now we can put those answers at their fingertips.
"Right now, we're focused on special ops and first responders Apps," he said. "They know what challenges they face and how quickly they want their problems solved. We also have our eyes on app developers who, like us, are interested in innovative problem solving.
"If you're in one of those categories, get in touch," he said.
The CamoScience™ debut was announced at the Association of the United States Army's Institute of Land Warfare Winter Symposium and Exposition in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., the internationally recognized bridge-building event focused on military innovation.
Earlier this week at AUSA, MW Research and Development released the new 3D Hot Targets™ systems, which also take advantage of GEOINT and provide warfighters immersive training.
