The ASPEN/ISS project started as a series of university grants and grew into a $15 million nationwide deployment over three years. We did R&D work with the first mobile systems and pen-based software and my team was directly responsible for the red-outlined boxes.
We were also the first Federal project to use Delphi and became a case study for adoption by several Federal agencies. We prototyped the 2-d barcode on your driver's license and prototyped uploads using CDPD, an early forerunner of today's wireless broadband. In retrospect, it was an amazing project.
