eTelic delivers solutions that improve how Federal, Defense, and Commercial organizations service their constituents and stakeholders. We focus on delivering cost savings and improved efficiency across IT projects of all sizes. eTelic provides consulting expertise on multi-year projects across several Federal and Defense agencies. We have nearly a decade of experience in the full life cycle management of IT practice areas. The list below highlights some of our representative Clients and projects:
EXAMINATION DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM The U.S. Navy’s advancement program requires examinations by personnel in order to properly evaluate their skills and job performance. The exam process requires a significant number of DoD mandated business rules. This Examination Development System is a web-based application that embodies all those business rules along with associated security requirements, including smart cards and encryption.
NAVY ENLISTED ADVANCEMENT SYSTEM The advancement of sailors in the Navy is governed by complicated business rules that were embodied in a million lines of COBOL code. These were largely un-documented (i.e. they evolved through multiple Navy directives and became convoluted). The system integrated with 30+ other systems as well. We converted this bulky application into a more modern system, without impacting any of the 30 integrating systems, while having the same advancement results (calculations) as in the older system.The fact tables held ~18M records for each cycle (~6 cycles for the year, 20 years of data).
IMPROVING NAVY ADVANCEMENT PROCESS U.S. Navy advances (promotes) sailors based on a complicated mathematical criteria with inputs from their past performance and exams. The organization performing this service was seeking to improve its processes and work methodologies and we leveraged the Human Interaction Modeling approach to provide that.
RECRUIT INPROCESSING SYSTEM When new recruits start in the U.S. Navy, they have to fill out over 50 paper forms with over 1,000 fields. Using Turanto, we managed the complete development of an automated system that provides a web-based wizard that embodies complex business rules, allowing the recruits to fill out the data exactly once. The information was then accessed by Navy personnel in many commands to further process recruit information, including viewing and editing of information, and printing various reports from the data recorded from the in-processing system.
OPTIMIZING NAVY RECRUITING PROCESS U.S. Navy Recruiting had a good recruiting process, but the evolution of rules had complicated it. This caused a significant number of mini organizations to sprout up in order to validate different aspects of a recruit – in turn, blurring the transparent status of a recruit’s application. The satisfaction rates –both from recruits and recruiters – had plummeted. We identified the root causes and enabled the organization to be on the right track to reduce their recruit decision and readiness time.
SCHEDULING CLASSES BASED ON PROXIMITY TO TRAINING CENTER U.S. Navy sailors have to regularly attend classes that are offered at different places. The sailor sometimes picks classes that are not close to his/her physical location, causing significant travel expenses for the US Navy. The desire was to build (prototype) a system that will by default provide the classes that are nearest to the sailor. Integrated the GIS information over web services using Google API and Google maps.
CONTENT SITE FOR U.S. NAVY (USING ORACLE MIDDLEWARE) Using shared folders to share documents is still common, but does not allow collaboration over the web. Moreover, the security setup is a little more tedious and has to be tied to internal accounts. Hence, US Navy (NETPDTC) desired a web based content management site and selected Oracle Collaboration (now Oracle Middleware Content Management). SERVICES PROVIDED
- Oracle Collaboration (BeeHive / Content Management) deployment and configuration
- WEBDAV configuration, requirements and process considerations.
INFORMATION SECURITY -SINGLE SIGN ON U.S. Navy had several independent systems – each with its own set of login and role models. This caused the end users to remember and modify a significant number of passwords to do their job. Establishing a portal to consolidate all the links on one page would help only if the movement from one site to another did not pop up a login dialog – with a different username/password combination. This project was to enable personnel to login once and seamlessly traverse to partner websites without having to re-login. SERVICES PROVIDED
- Software Development (Java, Oracle Platform)
SMART CARD INTEGRATION Once the Single Sign On solution was in place, the next challenge was complying with the smart card login (CAC – Common Access Card for Department of Defense). Since all the sites were already logging in with the SSO server, it was obviously the right place to modify to integrate with CAC. We also integrated over SOA with DEERS (the Defense system that includes all contractor, employee, and retiree data), to ensure all the relevant data was available as profile information to partner apps. SERVICES PROVIDED
- Software Development (Java, Oracle App Server), Web Services, SOA, Smart Card (CAC)
ENTERPRISE .NET STANDARDS FOR U.S. NAVY US Navy’s MPT&E organization was seeking to standardize its multitude of .NET applicationdevelopment so that the resources could easily be moved across projects, the projects would always yield consistent results, and the security and performance footprint would be consistent. The result was a significant effort to document all aspects of .NET development and resulted in a significant Enterprise Architecture that is being followed for all .NET development.
JAVA STANDARDS FOR U.S. NAVY U.S. Navy’s MPT&E organization was seeking to standardize its Java application development so that the resources could easily be moved across projects, the projects would always yield consistent results,and the security and performance footprint would be consistent. The result was a significant effort to document all aspects of Java (web application) development, and what resulted is a significant Enterprise Architecture (in progress) that will be followed by the developer community.

FABRIC NESTING OPTIMIZATION SYSTEM To develop & deploy a web-based system or optimization of panel cutting for Lutron’s window Shade Manufacturing Unit. The system will capture fabric flaw maps and uses it to determine the optimal cut for panel using a simple fit algorithm, thereby minimizing the scrap generated from the selected fabric roll. The system will select the roll based on sales order, issues the roll, display the cuts graphically (on screen) while avoiding flaws for cutting operator & generate report/labels/ remnant roll updated data. Also need to generate different labels with Bar Code (code 128). SERVICES PROVIDED
