Blue Marble Geographics announced recently the licensing arrangements that provide use of their GeoCalc software development kit within ballistic targeting applications developed by LogicaCMG.
LogicaCMG chose Blue Marble’s GeoCalc SDK to provide a variety of comprehensive grid system support within highly accurate specialized military software applications. GeoCalc is used in FCA, a ballistic calculator that provides enhanced aiming capabilities by analyzing various terrain models. GeoCalc is also embedded in FC-BISA, a command system that coordinates effective battlefield resource deployment. Both applications require detailed coordinate system support, from UTM, BNG, MGRS, Lat/Lon to user-defined systems.
GeoCalc is one of the industry standards for coordinate conversion and contains well over 130 pre-defined ellipsoids, 630 datum transformations and over 30 projections.
