Performance Timeline:     One (1) Year

 

Project Cost Estimate:               $565,025.00

 

This proposal is offered to satisfy the immediate needs of the Department of Homeland Security, DOD, and other intelligence agencies of the government. The program will serve as a working tool for our intelligence operatives in their quest to analyze and minimize the threat of terrorism against America and the western world.

 

 

A. Problem.

The immediate problem was initially highlighted after September 11, 2001 when the government realized that it had limited or no intelligence information on Al Quaida and the terrorists cells in the Middle East and abroad. Most significantly, it had too few operatives versed in the languages of Arabic, Hindi, Malay, Tagalog, Persian, Bengali, Sinhalese and other Asian and Middle Eastern dialects, where the cell members operated from.

 

B.   Products.

The design, development and production of the np series Translator Software Programs will provide an important training tool for the members of Homeland Security, DOD, the FBI and the CIA. They come in compact discs which can be loaded onto a computer terminal or laptop.

 

The np series Translator Software is an extensive learning package with an English-to-(target language) and (target language)-to-English dictionary and over 10,000 vocabulary word list. They also come with over 5,000 everyday conversational phrases in their unique Phrase Processor database system.

 

The np series translators differ from other software in the marketplace in that they provide an open-ended database file, which CAN be edited. This allows the software owner the flexibility of enhancing the translation power to as close to infinity as he or she wishes it to be.

 

One must note that language translators are finite devices since language, itself, is in a constant flux or change. The more words and phrases you input into the memory base, the closer you are to infinity. The np series are written in C+++ computer language and allow for such growth, limited only by the memory capacity of one’s computer system.

 

C. Process.

The prototype software module is available in our collection. What remains to be done is the inputting of the vocabulary word list into the (target language)-to-English and English-to-(target language) Dictionary. The communications phrase list will also need to be inputted into the phrase processor. Finally, because the np series is a phonetic based system, a voice synthesizer and voice recognition program will need to be linked.

 

D. Importance.

The significance of this project is predicated by our ability to sort out intelligence information and remain ahead of those who wish to destroy our way of life, our freedom, and our democracy. If only we can prevent another 9/11 from happening, it would be worthwhile.

 

The np series translators will certainly become an educational tool for greater understanding and communications between the target language speakers and the rest of the world. It is said that learning and speaking another person’s language is the greatest form of respect. You become one with that person.

Computers & Software                                          $48,425.00

Disk Production Cost:                                           $26,600.00

 

The major cost of the project go out to labor since the bulk of the work is in the inputting of the data and the recording of the words and  phrases into memory. This is minimized with the hiring of UH and HPU language students on a part-time basis.

 

An inventory list of 1000 CDs will be produced per language for immediate distribution. Additionally, the target languages (phonetic phrase system) will be published on the internet for worldwide application and use. Please visit http://fino-mu.tripod.com for an overview.
