Paragon Imaging to Advance In NIMA's Softcopy Search Program 11.19.2002

The objective of the Program is to provide NIMA with the capability to conduct the search of intelligence and commercial softcopy imagery effectively and efficiently.

Paragon Imaging, leading developers of image processing software, announced that they are part of a team that has been selected for Phase I of the National Imagery and Mapping Agency's Softcopy Search Program. The team, headed by Eastman Kodak Company, also includes: Hewlett Packard, Idelix Software and Toshiba e-Solutions Company.

The objective of the Softcopy Search Program is to provide NIMA, imagery intelligence producers throughout the Department of Defense, and other U.S. government agencies with the capability to conduct the search of intelligence and commercial softcopy imagery effectively and efficiently. If deployed, the solution would revolutionize NIMA's imagery operations.

Under Kodak's leadership the team's state-of-the-art technologies will be merged to deliver a focused, high-performance integrated solution to meet NIMA's requirements. The foundation of the team's solution combines Paragon's premier ELT software with Intergraph's GIS software into a single integrated platform. In addition, Idelix offers their unique in-context magnification technology. To run the solution, Compaq and Toshiba provide their best-in-class workstations and display platforms, in order to provide NIMA a broader assessment of performance.

Currently, the team has provided a prototype of their Softcopy solution to NIMA for testing and evaluation. In Phase 2, the team will be asked to continue development on the solution based on feedback from NIMA's imagery analysts.
