BAE Systems merges multiple geospatial technologies

San Diego, US: BAE Systems developed SOCET GXP(R) v4.0 which merges the full spectrum of mapping and analysis capabilities — image analysis, geospatial analysis, photogrammetry, and remote sensing — into a single package. Commercial, defense, and government customers worldwide can now use the same tool to create and share a wide range of products, from complete 3-D city models to GeoPDF intelligence reports.

“Ten years ago, we began to see convergence in the various mapping and analysis disciplines,” said Jeff Allen, general manager of BAE Systems’ Geospatial eXploitation Products business. “To address this trend, we built SOCET GXP to integrate multiple geospatial capabilities into one product, eliminate the redundancy of specialty packages, and reduce operating, maintenance, and training costs.”

SOCET GXP v4.0 uses imagery and video from government and commercial sources to identify, analyze, and extract ground features quickly for improved situational awareness. It reads and processes data natively to save excess steps such as importing and reformatting data. Data discovered in GXP Xplorer, BAE Systems’ latest data management tool, can be loaded into SOCET GXP v4.0 for further analysis. The software also is compatible with popular geospatial products such as TerraGo(R) 2-D Publisher and 3-D GeoPDF, Google Earth(TM), Esri(R) ArcGIS Server, and Esri geodatabases.
