PCI Geomatics Signs Software Agreement With BAE SYSTEMS for Canadian Distribution 06.26.2003

PCI Geomatics has exclusive distributor rights for SOCET SET digital photogrammetry software in Canada.

PCI Geomatics and BAE SYSTEMS are proud to announce a new agreement that provides PCI Geomatics with exclusive distributor rights for SOCET SET digital photogrammetry software in Canada. PCI Geomatics has also been provided with the exclusive rights to promote related SOCET SET services, including support and training, to Canadian customers.

"SOCET SET", (SoftCopy Exploitation Tool Set) is BAE SYSTEMS' premier photogrammetric software for digital mapping, geographic information systems (GIS) and three-dimensional (3D) visualization or simulation applications. Built upon the foundation of its Helava heritage, SOCET SET provides the capability to generate very accurate, highly detailed geospatial data to support military requirements, intelligence needs, homeland security, and a wide range of civil applications, such as commercial mapping, urban planning and development, and the development of city, state/province, or federal GIS information.

"BAE SYSTEMS' confidence in PCI Geomatics stems from earlier cooperative successes, and we look forward to surpassing previous successes with this new commitment," states Arnold Hougham, Vice-President of Sales and Product Marketing for PCI Geomatics. "We are excited about distributing SOCET SET in Canada and providing a wider variety of photogrammetry technology along with supporting services in this important geographic market."

PCI Geomatics and BAE SYSTEMS have enjoyed a productive and cooperative development history together. In 1996, both companies signed technology agreements to share resources in an effort to help improve SOCET SET import/export format support and to help port SOCET SET technology over to PC platforms. This agreement also enabled PCI Geomatics to incorporate enhanced photogrammetric functionality in its product, APEX. APEX, now discontinued, was initially offered as special photogrammetry solution along side PCI Geomatics' own innovative and popular digital photogrammetry solution, OrthoEngine.

"BAE SYSTEMS' partnership with PCI Geomatics brings an excellent selection of software tools together under one umbrella to support the production needs of photogrammetrist and mapmakers throughout Canada." says Dan London, VP Sales & Marketing. He adds, "PCI Geomatics embraces our principles of superior customer support and continuous customer driven product enhancements. By having PCI Geomatics nearby to support their daily production needs, our customers will have more timely support and greater input into future product direction". "BAE Systems and PCI Geomatics share a strong bond in our desire to promote photogrammetric software excellence." adds Dr. Robert Moses, President and CEO of PCI Geomatics. "This agreement provides an opportunity for both organizations to better service the Canadian photogrammetry market with ideal geospatial solutions for all user demands."
