Ball Aerospace Opens the Aperture at GEOINT


BOULDER, Colo. – Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. will open the nation’s aperture to innovation, performance and value proposition at the 2012 GEOINT Symposium to be held the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center, Kissimmee, FL., Oct. 8-11.

Ball’s recent accomplishments will be on display at booth #1417 as we demonstrate our agility to innovate and strength to deliver for the nation’s most critical national space, tactical and information missions.

Demonstrations at the Ball booth will include:

·        Total Sight™ Flash Lidar is real-time, full motion color LIDAR (light imaging, detection and ranging) for time critical missions.  The system combines state-of-the art LIDAR sensors and laser systems with robust real-time processing systems.

·        The Interactive Comprehensive Environment (ICE) tool brings together various sources of intelligence from multiple locations into a single interface, granting the user full situational awareness during a live or simulated event.

·        DYNAMAN-DIME is a tool used to emulate live/virtual/constructive flight environments in order to prepare for weather, latency and other hazards which may hinder airborne data collection.


·        Opticks is an open-source AGI data processing tool used to exploit MASINT data such as multi/hyperspectral, thermal-IR, SAR, and other persistent overhead scene-based data. Opticks also supports the extraction of intensity values within point cloud LiDAR data, analyzing full motion video streams, emulating 3D illuminated scenes, and processing real-time airborne hyperspectral data.

·        Geode is a tool used to search and retrieve large web-based repositories of AGI data. Web-Opticks is a remote processing version of Opticks, where the data is selected, processed, and viewed via a connection to the remote repository. Web Report Editing Tool (WebRET) makes text based intelligence report generation simple by providing a web-based report editor that enables simple manipulation by the analyst as opposed to traditional text report generation methods. Finally, Interactive Event Visualization (IEV) is a flex-based web tool used by the analyst to gather multiple sources of information, in different formats, and produce a multimedia product based on those inputs. This provides the customer with an interactive intelligence product which tells a story regarding an event. Video: v=V3csMQAAR3Q&list= UUcI5lfyzGefuFfp8qZCkdAQ& index=1&feature=plcp
