Space Imaging Wins NIMA Contract
Denver-based Space Imaging has won a contract from the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) to evaluate a new technology enabling the search of large satellite imagery databases for specific elements such as vehicles, buildings, weapon systems and geographical landmarks. Evaluation of the technology started in April and will be finished in August.
The technology, created by Look Dynamics of Longmont, Co., combines optical and digital processing to build intelligent shape- and pattern-based databases that can be searched for specific structures, objects and terrain features. Under its contract with NIMA, Space Imaging will evaluate the technology for national security applications.
