SAN DIEGO, 7 June 2006. BAE Systems has unveiled an updated version of its Socet GXP software, integrating new tools for image analysis, geospatial analysis, 3D simulation, and targeting -- designed to be particularly helpful for homeland defense and military intelligence missions.

SOCET GXP version 2.2 provides greater situational awareness for users engaged in disaster relief and recovery, humanitarian efforts, reconnaissance, battle-damage assessment, and surveillance missions.

Military analysts can use the software to process, analyze, and deliver high-resolution digital imagery derived from airborne and satellite sensors. That imagery can now be labeled with detailed notes to provide actionable intelligence to first responders, decision-makers, and others across secure networks.

"From my experience in the field, I know how important it is to have the capability to communicate up-to-the-minute details that are critical to successful operations," says Eric Bruce, BAE Systems' product manager for Geospatial eXploitation Products and a former Air Force intelligence analyst.

The software processes data from a variety of image sources and creates image products that can be compressed and saved in multiple formats. Data and reports can be immediately e-mailed and accessed from mobile laptop computers, relay stations, and ground control centers.

SOCET GXP is available for UNIX and Windows platforms.
