It never ceases to amaze me how quickly the year can fly by, and it’s been another great year here at BAE Systems GXP. Among other notable events, this year marked the rollout of SOCET SET® v5.4 with its innovative Next-Generation Automatic Terrain Extraction (NGATE) functionality and the release of SOCET GXP® v2.3.1 with its transformational Spatially Enabled Exploitation (SEE) capability and live connections to both Google Earth™ and the ESRI® geodatabase. Equally as important, we have enjoyed the pleasure of welcoming many new customers to our BAE Systems GXP family in 2007. Yes, it has been an excellent year.
Now we are looking forward to 2008 and the achievement of a major milestone in the evolution of our products…SOCET GXP v3.0. As you may know, for the past several years we have been working hard to combine our image analysis software (VITec) and geospatial analysis software (SOCET SET) into a single product line. From the start, we understood clearly that the resulting product would have to have the accuracy and precision of SOCET SET while maintaining the ease and speed of VITec. Furthermore, with over 25 years of combined history and capability, we knew that integrating the two products wouldn’t be an easy task.
Despite all of the challenges, the goal is within reach. In mid 2008, SOCET GXP v3.0 will arrive with updated user interfaces, improved workflows, and greatly increased capabilities for geospatial analysis, as well as several key enhancements for image analysis. This upcoming release is exciting news for all of us, and I am sure that you are looking forward to it as much as I am. We will be certain to keep you updated as we get closer to the SOCET GXP v3.0 release, but feel free to contact us in the mean time if you have any questions.
SOCET GXP v3.0 combines image analysis and geospatial analysis capabilities in the same software package.
Also, as a reminder, registration is now open for our 2008 BAE Systems GXP International User Conference, April 7 – 11, 2008, at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines in San Diego, CA. The conference is always a great opportunity for us to get together to share, learn, and build relationships, but this year’s conference promises to be even better with the introduction of a non-technical Executive Track and several new social events. Additionally, we will be showcasing SOCET GXP v3.0 with live demonstrations and workshops. I can’t stress enough how much we value your participation and feedback at our conference, and I look forward to seeing you all there. Just make sure to keep your eye on the calendar… April will be here before we know it.
Enjoy the holidays!!!
