Abstract
Timely gathering and sharing of intelligence information is vital to the efficient execution of military missions. Much of the information collected in the field is impossible to exploit quickly because it is in hardcopy form, and handwritten. A mobile application that is capable of capturing handwritten documents and quickly converting the document image to electronic text will fill a critical need. Once converted to electronic text, the information can be exploited in a number of ways including being converted by machine translation systems, processed by text analysis engines, and indexed by search engines. The goal of this project is to develop a mobile handwriting recognition system. Our approach is to combine the capabilities of modern mobile handsets with powerful backend servers to create a system that meets the needs of a modern warfighter.
