US army dolphins train with Slovak software

Slovak software is used in the training of US army dolphins that are now being used to search for mines in the Iraqi port of Umm Kasr. Last November the US marines purchased the 3D data visualisation software from Dimension 5, based in the western Slovak town of Hlohovec.

"The software is useful for cases where it is necessary to reveal hidden connections between data, when it is not possible through normal views of the data," said Dušan Toman, one of the owners of the firm.

The company normally sells the software to foreign pharmaceutical companies, banks, and research institutions. It does not have a single Slovak customer.
