TerraMetrics and AGI Announce Global Imagery Partnership
Littleton, Colo.—TerraMetrics, Inc., a leading supplier of satellite imagery databases, 3-D terrain datasets, and software tools for visual simulation and training markets, is partnering with Analytical Graphics, Inc. (AGI) to provide TruEarth® 15-meter-per-pixel global imagery to users of STK®, AGI’s commercially available software for analysis of land, sea, air, and space assets. AGI is also including a reduced-resolution, 8-kilometer-per-pixel version of TruEarth global imagery in all three editions of the newly released STK 8 software.
TerraMetrics produces global imagery using proprietary TruEarth color processing for accurate, natural-color balance. Derived from uncompressed source data, TruEarth 15-meter imagery is free from compression artifacts that can compromise image quality, making the dataset ideal for demanding applications.
“Our TruEarth 15-meter imagery will allow STK users to pursue close-to-ground flight modeling and simulation on a whole new level,” says Greg Baxes, president, TerraMetrics. “We’re pleased to partner with an innovative company like AGI and to support the important work of its user community in the national security and space arenas.”
“TerraMetrics’ global imagery will offer our software users an excellent backdrop for dynamically analyzing and visualizing air and ground missions that span the entire globe,” says Kevin Flood, AGI director of product management.
AGI will demonstrate STK 8 with TruEarth 15-meter imagery in booth #1007 at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation, and Education Conference (I/ITSEC), in Orlando, Fla., on Dec. 4-7, 2006.
Analytical Graphics, Inc. (AGI) develops commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) analysis software for land, sea, air, and space that is relied upon by the national security and space communities. With more than 32,000 worldwide installations, the main applications of AGI technologies focus on battlespace management, geospatial intelligence, space systems, and national defense programs. In addition to the STK product suite, AGI produces the desktop software applications Navigation Tool Kit and Orbit Determination Tool Kit; interactive AGI Viewer visualization software, and the embedded development tool 4DX.
