Marine Corps to Hold Mobile App Design Contest; Col. Kyle Dewar Comments

1 min read

mobile appThe U.S. Marine Corps will launch a competition that seeks to encourage Marines to develop mobile phone applications that can help them monitor their quality of life, physical fitness and warfighting capacity, Marine Corps Times reported Friday.

Jeff Schogol writes that interested participants can submit codes for iOS and Android apps through the Marine Corps Mobile Application Competition.

“Marines know their jobs, they know their circumstances best,” Col. Kyle Dewar, enterprise data center technologist at the Marine Corps, was quoted as saying.

“If they’re able to develop an app to help improve their life or their job function, that’s a win-win for the Marine Corps,” Dewar added.

Daniel Corbin, the Marine Corps’ C4 chief technology adviser, said the service branch will announce approved proposals in November and honor winners during the Charleston Defense Contractors Association C5ISR Summit in December, according to the report.
