South America’s unique position in the world presents the opportunity to test out and develop new GEOINT capabilities, said U.S. Navy Adm. Kurt Tidd, leader of U.S. Southern Command.
SAN ANTONIO, Texas — MDA Corp.’s pending acquisition of DigitalGlobe will enhance the firm’s ability to offer U.S. defense and intelligence agencies not only imagery, but analysis and answers, said Rob Zit…
The contract from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency seeks to allow analysts "to search and retrieve data from intelligence systems faster and more efficiently."
Earth-i’s new constellation will allow customers to task the onboard imager to gather still or video imagery of targets of interest, capturing videos of 25 to 30 frames per second.
"We are looking for innovation. New companies spring up around great new ideas. We are looking for that kind of out-of-the-box thinking," Hughes said.
New technology for satellite imaging and tracking will help the military more efficiently move and deploy troops and hardware, the head of U.S. Transportation Command said.
Relaxing regulations and lowering some of the hurdles that discourage private firms from working with federal agencies would bolster innovation, according to panelists at the 2017 GEOINT Symposium.
Best known for his role on Star Trek, William Shatner wants to feature the next generation of NASA scientists.
Planet announced plans June 5 to offer data from its constellation of global Earth-imaging cubesats through Harris Geospatial’s ENVI desktop platform, which means customers will be able to use the data with ENVI image-analysis software to detect day-to-day changes, classify objects and extract geographic features.
The platform pulls in remote-sensing data from a variety of sources, which customers can search by location or time to identify objects and forecast change.
Some GEOINT tools won't work on the battlefield, says Patrick Biltgen, the technical director of analytics for Vencore.
DigitalGlobe announced plans June 5 to augment its cloud-based geospatial big data platform, GBDX, with Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data from Radarsat-2, a satellite launched in 2007 by the Canadian Space Agency and MacDonald Dettwiler and Associates, the firm that announced plans in February to acquire DigitalGlobe.
Leaders from across the government, military, academic and commercial sectors will meet for the GEOINT Symposium June 4-7, at a time when geospatial capabilities are expanding and evolving as never before.
