ADCS software converter gains DOD acceptance

Members of the U.S. Department of Defense needed a software package to convert legacy data from unintelligent raster images to smart computer-aided design-ready drawings. They found their solution in the VPmaxNT conversion software program from Automated Document Conversion Systems (ADCS) Inc. in San Diego.

ADCS recently won a $1 million contract via the Telecommunication Inc. National Technical Information Service contract to supply 162 units of VPmaxNT to the DOD, which makes the software package "the most widely used software product by the federal government," says ADCS President Brent Wilkes, with customers in all four military services at hundreds of military installations worldwide.

The PC-based VPmaxNT uses a four-step process to convert raster images to CAD drawings. It runs on a 486DX or Pentium on Windows 3.1, Windows 95, or Windows NT. The software has received high marks for its performance from a group of Army, Navy, Air Force, and DOD participants. - J.K.
