Boeing's New Visualization Software Release Advances Situational Awareness

Boeing [NYSE:BA], a provider of integrated intelligence solutions, has released two new versions of its visualization software enabling analysts to more effectively provide situational awareness information to their Department of Defense customers.

The new versions of this visualization software are BattleScape 3.4 Standard and BattleScape Developer Option. Both are commercial, off-the-shelf software products available for immediate delivery from Software Product Sales at The new BattleScape enables a warfighter to scan the night-time battlespace in order to track and monitor late-night skirmishes and view current weather patterns to plan and react to the natural environment.

"Boeing is committed to providing today's warfighter with secure access to vital, real-time information that can be quickly absorbed and used," said Brian Knutsen, general manager of Boeing Space and Intelligence Systems (S&IS) Mission Systems. "Updates to the BattleScape software are another example of how Boeing continues to support our customer's most difficult challenges with visionary solutions enabling mission success."

BattleScape 3.4 Standard is a software tool that, for the first time, integrates the ability to model data of existing ground, air and space assets and simulates the addition of new assets into an environment.

BattleScape 3.4 Standard delivers the information necessary to recognize and respond to risks as they develop. Users can assist collection management by continuously displaying the coverage of terrain-constrained surveillance sensors. The advanced modeling and simulation capabilities of BattleScape Standard enable precise sensor analysis for satellites, and air and ground-based platforms.

BattleScape Developer Option, a Windows®-based whole earth three-dimensional visualization toolkit, allows users to easily create applications to visualize a whole earth environment including ground-based data such as sensor imagery, terrain, aircraft tracks, and terrain maps as well as space-based information including satellite positions and weather patterns.
