Washington DC, USA, October 09, 2007: Fortified Intelligence, a unit of Fortified Holdings Corp., has acquired intellectual property for state-of-the-art geospatial software and has named Martin Chapman Chief Software Architect. The company is developing a software suite with plans for a release in late 2007 under the name Fortified GIS.
The Fortified GIS suite is being developed to enable users to rapidly update geospatial information layers in an image or other dataset, allowing remotely sensed data to be turned into useful, value-added information. Users of Fortified GIS products can range from deployed “tactical” decision-makers, to geospatial analysts, to web developers, to corporate planners presenting decision-support information based on location-specific information. Elements of the Fortified GIS suite were initially released in beta under the name ViewPort.
Brendan Reilly, Chairman and CEO of Fortified Holdings Corp., said, “We are extremely excited about what this means for our business. We believe Fortified GIS can be a very valuable asset with tremendous revenue potential. By itself, remotely sensed imagery is nothing but data or a nice picture in the background. With Fortified GIS, it becomes a useful tool for delivering decision support data to corporate team members, first responders, warfighters, corporate team members and potentially to anyone with a common cellular phone.”
