Oxford, UK (PRWEB) January 15, 2015
This project, contracted by The Netherlands MOD Defence Material Organisation’s Air Systems Procurement Department, will result in the delivery of two identical exploitation suites for use with the Insitu ScanEagle systems in service with the Dutch Army. Each integrated suite will run 2d3 Sensing’s Catalina and TacitView software, allowing analysts to create a metadata-based catalogue of the imagery archive and to rapidly exploit live feeds of video data that enable enhanced and faster support to decision makers.
The Catalina motion imagery catalogue and archive capability will improve the quantity of data the unit can retain and significantly reduce the time to retrieve data from archive for further analysis. The modular TacitView motion imagery exploitation solution has been tailored to the specific workflow needs of each analyst in the ground segment, ensuring efficiency in their intelligence production task, but also reducing overall system costs and complexity.
This procurement is to support an urgent operational requirement to enhance a capability deployed by The Netherlands MOD to support UN operations in Mali. 2d3 Sensing was tasked to deliver the capability within extremely tight timescales; from contract award to system integration to staff training, the entire process was completed within 30 days. This demonstrates the benefit of powerful commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) capabilities that can be deployed quickly and efficiently to enhance tactical operational capability.
