MecSoft Contributes to Research at MIT and the US Army

Irvine, CA – April 13, 2006: MecSoft Corporation, developer of industry leading manufacturing software, announced today the use of their RhinoCAM product at Soldier Nanotechnology's Soldier Design Competition 2006 held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). MIT students Kyle Vogt, Jeremy Konrad and Grant Jordon built a prototype enclosure using Rhino 3D modeling tools and RhinoCAM's precision machining methods to develop a height and velocity sensor suite capable of measuring ground distance from a height of up to 500 feet. Their team, The Wave Master, was placed 3rd overall in the competition and awarded the prestigious Boeing Award. The team Wave Master has been working with the US Army. They plan to continue their work with the army on this project and develop a final, mass producible product sometime in the future.

MIT and the U.S Army officials recently unveiled their new Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies a 28,000-square-foot facility that marshals government, academic and industrial resources to develop a new generation of equipment the average soldier will take into combat.

MecSoft is proud to be contributing to the research and development activities of MIT and the US Army.
