A popular Web-based collaboration application developed for the Defense Department is now being made available for mobile devices, according to a report from Government Computer News.

Defense Connect Online, an application developed by the Defense Information Systems Agency, currently allows users to host and attend Web meetings, and provides unified communications tools that lets individuals know who among their peers is available on the network. It also supports online chats.

The new mobile device version is set to work on Android smart phones and tablets.

The collaboration tool is used by more than 640,000 people, said Mark Mills, vice president and DCO program manager at Carahsoft, and is built around Adobe Connect and uses Cisco Jabber for its chat function, according to the GCN report.

A mobile version for iOS smart phones and tablets is still in development.
