ARLINGTON, Va., April 11, 2012 -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] today announced the release of DataMaster 5.1, an advanced version of its geospatial data tool that offers defense and Intelligence Community customers improved map, terrain and full-motion video management.
"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 5.1 is available to new Boeing customers as well as to current customers with active DataMaster subscriptions. It includes the following 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
- The addition of a content manager for better control of the situational awareness (SA) view, which provides the user with a 3-D geospatial display of the collection
- Expanded compatibility with Windows 7, RHEL 5 64-bit and Solaris 64-bit operating systems.
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.
