Boeing has unveiled DataMaster 5.1, the latest version of its geospatial data tool, promising defense and intelligence community customers improved management of digital imagery, maps and video.
“Boeing is responding to the need of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance mission analysts to be able to create a structured ‘library’ where vast amounts of geospatial data can be catalogued, organized and quickly retrieved,” said Jonathan Moneymaker, director of Intelligence Systems Group for Boeing Information Solutions. “Using DataMaster 5.1 during a natural disaster, for example, an analyst could bring together video and imagery surveillance data to aid in damage assessment and identify areas where emergency-response resources may be needed.”
DataMaster is a comprehensive suite of commercial-off-the-shelf products and capabilities from the Boeing Intelligence Systems Group that allows users to retrieve, convert and manage image and geospatial information from resources around the world.
DataMaster 5.1 features enhanced support for maps, imagery and terrain, including National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Raster Product Format and Digital Terrain Elevation Data; enhanced video text tagging for improved exploitation, management and retrieval of video; a content manager for better control of the situational awareness view, which provides the user with a 3-D geospatial display of the collection; and expanded compatibility with Windows 7, RHEL 5 64-bit and Solaris 64-bit operating systems.
