Tracen Petaluma Mobile Applications Available for Download
Coast Guard Information Systems Technicians (ITs) are getting a new tool in their kits.
The Pocket PC-based Information Systems Technician mobile Technician (ITmTech) uses cutting-edge technology to direct the troubleshooting and repair of Coast Guard IT equipment in a user-friendly and intuitive handheld package.
ITmTech currently has two troubleshooting modules: CGSW Build 5.0, and the Digital Voice Logger (DVL) (previous standalone DVL mTech info below). With XML-generated content, the mTech product is easily expandable to additional modules or even different ratings (Electronics Technician mobile Technician; ETmTech?).
This technology was developed in-house by the Training Center Petaluma Instructional Support Team (IST) and is available to the Coast Guard community through the G-WTT eLearning group.
