GEOINT Symposium 2009 day two: New image processing algorithms for SOCET GXP® v3.1 are on display

BAE Systems at GEOINT Symposium 2009

Multiple new hyperspectral and multispectral algorithm plug-ins for SOCET GXP® debut in the forthcoming release. Users can employ the algorithms to detect camouflage, or other hard-to-identify objects in imagery.

The new plug-ins provide a convenient option for SOCET GXP users, who would otherwise have to employ specialized applications to complete these image processing tasks.

Another new technology advancement for SOCET GXP v3.1 is the Xport window, designed for real-time image visualization and detailed analysis. An interactive palette of up to 16 panels linked to the primary image displays different image processing algorithms simultaneously.

The Geospatial eXploitation Products team is demonstrating these new image processing tools at the BAE Systems booth #503.

SOCET GXP users exploit high-resolution imagery for spatial-based collaboration in the field

With a few simple steps, GEOINT attendees are seeing first-hand how easy it is to generate a GeoPDF® file from SOCET GXP or TerraGo Publisher® for SOCET GXP®. Here is a typical scenario.

Step 1: Launch the SOCET GXP application
Step 2: Load an image
Step 3: Pan-sharpen the image
Step 4: Apply a template
Step 5: Draw a vector around an area of interest, and add a label
Step 6: Export the panel or product to create the GeoPDF

It’s that simple. After the GeoPDF is created, users can take measurements, attach a GPS device, and create “stamps” to label incidents, infrastructures, natural events, and operations. The finished product is condensed to a small footprint and can be quickly transmitted via email.

GEOINT attendees can watch a demonstration of this technology at the BAE Systems or TerraGo Technologies booths in the exhibit hall through Wednesday, October 21, 6:00 p.m.

NGA expands open source GEOINT

NGA is investing in new open source technology for greater data availability, information sharing and open source reporting. A new Geospatial Open-source Center teaches rudimentary and in-depth image analysis; terminology, tools, and resources; and advanced research techniques. In the near future the training program will be available on site for commands, and an online database knowledge service will offer access to additional information and services.

This initiative underscores components of the GEOINT show theme of building community and spreading the tradecraft.
