From 21st thru 23rd September 2005 in Heidelberg: Industrial sector solution XFIT ARMY and the 3D Body Scanner presented at the Military Congress

Kaiserslautern, 16th September 2005 - The Human Solutions Company of Kaiserslautern has been invited to a US Military specialist event: From the 21st until the 23rd of September, the Land Combat Exhibition 2005 Congress will take place in Heidelberg. Representatives of various military services from the USA and NATO will be present. At the US Army booth, Human Solutions will present the XFIT ARMY outfitting solution and the 3D Body Scanner for the effective outfitting of military personnel.

XFIT ARMY is the worldwide leading solution for the outfitting of military personnel and state security forces. The customer base, in addition to the US Army, includes military forces like the German Federal Army, the Dutch Army and the Swiss Army.

Dr. Michael Gnoth, Head of Human Solutions International Sales for the Body Scanning Industry Division and responsible for XFIT ARMY sales, said, "The solution is being utilized by the US Army. Our customers are extremely satisfied and will gladly provide references for XFIT ARMY at any time. Participating in this specialist event will enable us to demonstrate 'live' the uses and the benefits of XFIT ARMY to Land Combat Expo 2005 participants. XFIT ARMY isn't only based on a convincing theory, it has also been proving itself in practice for years now. Thanks to the hard evidence of much-increased efficiency in the outfitting process and extremely fast amortization, we are confident that we can further assert our position as market leaders - together with our customers."

XFIT ARMY - An Overview

In order to have a suitable and complete outfit for each military person, a warehouse with uniform items in all existing sizes used to be necessary - but with XFIT ARMY, only the specific sizes that will actually be needed later are stored: XFIT ARMY enables the automated definition of all the necessary body measurements of military personnel. Using these body sizes, XFIT ARMY then determines the best-fitting garment sizes - individually, for each soldier, sailor or airman.

With XFIT ARMY, Human Solutions possesses the worldwide leading CIRP concept (Clothing Issuing Resource Planning) for armed forces and state security forces. From the automated acquisition of body sizes by means of a 3D body scanner, to computer-supported allocation of the best-fitting clothing, and integration with existing IT systems, XFIT ARMY is today being successfully used by many armed forces, among which are the Danish Army, the German Federal Army, the Dutch Army, the Swiss Army and the US Army.
