ITT Exelis (NYSE: XLS) subsidiary Exelis Visual Information Solutions, a leading developer of geospatial image and data analysis software, announced a new, cloud-based implementation of ENVI image analysis software to be released early in 2013.
ENVI Services Engine will make information from airborne and satellite imagery available to forward-deployed military and intelligence personnel via mobile devices. This new product will allow them to gain situational awareness, better assess terrain conditions and identify potential targets and threats. By delivering technology to create, publish and deploy advanced, ENVI-based image and data analytics as Web services, the new capability will allow geographically diverse individuals the ability to make more informed decisions on critical tasks.
"Today’s defense, intelligence and disaster relief personnel rely on readily available geospatial imagery and data to assess important geographic conditions,” said Jaye Lampe, president of Exelis Visual Information Solutions. “But they do not always have access to the desktop software traditionally used to perform the required analytics. The cloud implementation of ENVI Services Engine will provide ready-now access to the critical information they need to make accurate decisions quickly and efficiently.”
ENVI image analysis products are already widely used in military and intelligence in tactical and strategic operations. It is widely known in the industry for its advanced analytical capabilities and for delivering highly accurate results. ENVI Services Engine has been successfully field tested in custom implementations by key customers. With an extremely flexible architecture, it can be easily deployed into nearly any existing enterprise, making it a cost effective solution that requires little additional training for users.
