BAE Systems Presents "Tales from the Waterfront" at GEOINT Symposium

October 15, 2007

Media representatives are invited to meet and talk with three BAE Systems employees who traveled to Iraq and Afghanistan and provided geospatial intelligence software training to field analysts.

Product specialists Eric Bruce, Robert Stout, and Dennis Bryant will share their experiences and field questions during an interactive session at the GEOINT Symposium at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center on Monday, Oct. 22, at 11:00 a.m. The briefing will take place in Room #208 on the mezzanine level of the Convention Center.

The specialists’ three-week trip was part of BAE Systems’ formal partnership with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Deployable Systems (NDS) Program Office and upgrade team. As part of the agreement, NDS purchased BAE Systems’ SOCET GXP® software to support its new, enhanced software.

SOCET GXP is used for image exploitation and features identification. Analysts in the field create intelligence through satellite and tactical means for use in site comparisons, battle damage assessment, and to detect potential improvised explosive devises and ambush sites.
