MY-T-TOUCH FOR GENERAL DYNAMICS AIS NAVAL SYSTEM
My-T-Touch® To Be integrated in General Dynamics AIS Naval System
PASO ROBLES, CA, September 15, 2009 – IMG, the leading supplier of onscreen utilities for pen, tablet, and touch pc based systems, announced today that it has received an initial order from General Dynamics AIS for a US Navy onboard systems project. The company will integrate IMG’s My-T-Touch on-screen keyboards into the project.
General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems delivers technology to the U.S. intelligence, maritime, space, and homeland communities. This contract includes the U.S. and U.K. Sea Based Strategic Deterrent (SBSD) Strategic Weapons System (SWS) Fire Control Subsystem-related efforts necessary for the concept development, prototyping and initial design efforts for a Common Missile Compartment (CMC) for the SSBN and SSGN OHIO Class replacement.
My-T-Touch simplifies data entry by eliminating the need for an external keyboard. It can be integrated so that keyboards and panels only appear when needed and can be put away when not in use. On a secure network, the keyboard will automatically launch with the login window, so the operator can logon and off as needed. Keys and panels can be customized to control access and sized to permit accurate entry even with large gloved hands. Custom layouts can be created and imported from IMG’s Build-A-Board Tool.

GENERAL DYNAMICS AIS AND IMG – 2-2-2-2
"IMG’s onscreen keyboard utilities are an ideal complement to General Dynamics system designs because they provide a built-in data entry point that can be easily integrated into any vertical market application, said Jerry Hussong, IMG’s Vice President of Sales. "When you place a computer in its ideal environment, external peripherals such as keyboards get damaged, broken or misplaced. They also can’t offer complete operator control, system security, or respond to processes changes over time. IMG’s onscreen keyboards utilities are designed to be embedded in a system, provide complete operator control, and are easily changed or modified to match processes changes."
The My-T-Soft Family (My-Typing-Pen, My-T-Soft or My-T-Touch, and Build-A-Board) offers more than 200 programmable, infinitely sizeable, U.S. and International "3D" onscreen keyboards, with an unlimited number of programmable macro buttons and panels. The main focus of the product line is for use in pen, tablet, and touch pc based systems as an alternative to physical keyboards and membrane panels. The latest release provides full support for Windows 98 thru 7 (including XP Tablet and XP Embedded) platforms (with optional Citrix / MS Terminal Services "thin client"/ Remote Desktop support). Prior releases required different products for different versions.
IMG’s products are written at the Windows kernel or services level, unlike an onscreen keyboard or panel developed in a database, browser, Active-X, Java, or high-level tools such as Visual Basic. This allows IMG to offer complete control over all Windows functions and applications, including ctrl/alt/del, network logons and passwords. Security features allow control over the user input.

My-T-Soft, My-T-Pen, and My-T-Touch retail for $99.95. Build-A-Board retails for $199.95US. OEM, private label, site licenses, and customized versions are available. Additional information and graphics are available at http://www.my-t-touch.com.
