Abstract
When the United States military commits to operations in foreign territories, it is important for soldiers to have the ability to understand textual information they encounter accurately and in a timely manner. For this SBIR Limaging proposes to develop a document and sign translation system that can be operated by a novice user to obtain and interpret documents and signs in foreign languages, The system will be comprised of a programmable Android camera phone (Smart Phone) and software developed for text detection, recognition and translation, and a configuration and visualization interface to aid personnel deployed in foreign countries. We will demonstrate technical feasibility by investigating and evaluating two modes of operation: standalone and client/server.
