- Vectors iPortal
- The iPortal is the Web OPAC for Virtua. It is written in C/C++, and acts as a Z39.50 origin (client).

- VITAL (VTLS Imaging Technology for Advanced Learning) is a Digital Asset Management product currently under development by the Imaging group.
- Language Editor Web Edition
- The Language Editor Web Edition is used to translate configuration files for the Vectors iPortal, the Book Locator, and InfoStation
- Tame the MetaData Jungle with MetaCat. MetaCat is fundamentally a MARC record creation tool. It allows someone to create web forms with labels and data entry fields that get translated using templates into the fields and subfields of a MARC record. MetaCat is a brilliant tool that allows non Library Science trained entry operators create fully verified MARC records.
- Fastrac is the name of the software and hardware offerings of the VTRAX division of VTLS.

Rusty was an underwater archaeologist in a former life. He also is a History major, and can give you more details about fighting and warfare throughout history than you ever wanted to know.
- Joe Liversedge
- Joe is our Graphics Guru. Besides working on the Book Locator, Language Editor Web Edition, the XBS and XVS features of the Chameleon, and VITAL, Joe is a company wide resource for PhotoShop and 3D Studio Max wizardry. Joe plays some mean Quake, fragging with the best of them.
