Visitors to the Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) exhibit (#501) at GEOINT 2007 will experience the company's innovative solutions for geospatial intelligence, bringing to life the company's theme "Service-Enabling the GEOINT Enterprise." The Harris exhibit will feature four critical aspects of enabling a seamless geospatial intelligence enterprise, which is the focus of the overall conference. GEOINT 2007 is sponsored by the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation and is being held October 21-24 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.
"The Intelligence Community's mission demands an information technology environment that enables collaboration, integration of data resources, faster discovery and retrieval, and advanced geospatial processing," said Jeremy Wensinger, group president of Harris Government Communications Systems. "Harris possesses the technology, processes, people and intelligence mission know-how to fully address this emerging requirement."
Visitors to the Harris exhibit will be able to view Harris products and systems that address the following challenges to Service-Enabling the GEOINT Enterprise:
Cross Enterprise Integration — Highlighting Harris IT and systems integration, this demonstration addresses interoperability within diverse, service-oriented architecture (SOA) enterprises residing at different locations and belonging to independent organizations. Incorporating three locations and two service buses from different vendors, Harris systems will exchange information, collaborate, execute services and interoperate regardless of whether the systems are internal or external to the enterprise.
Mission Integration Framework — This demonstration shows a network access control-compliant, SOA approach to the integration of GEOINT services, processing, data access and visualization. The framework integrates independently developed services using a Business Process Execution Language to orchestrate the process of retrieving source data, executing services and producing the final product. A Virtual Storage Area Network contains source imagery as well as products in geospatially separate locations, making them equally accessible to any service on the network.
Motion Imagery Integration — A worldwide leader of digital media solutions in the broadcast industry, Harris will feature integrated COTS products that are capable of managing live and archived video for industry, as well as news and sports giants. The Harris Full Motion Video Asset Management Engine will be demonstrated as a comprehensive solution to managing and distributing live and archived video for both the military and the Intelligence Community.
GEOINT Innovation — Harris will highlight four new technologies, several of which are centered on Harris advancements in automated LiDAR and correlated digital elevation model processing. They include: Foliage Depiction for automatically and accurately extracting tree canopies and generating trunks and branches; Void Fill for accurately replacing gaps in digital elevation models with few undesirable artifacts; Auto DEM, for automatically generating digital elevation models with a post spacing of one-point-per-pixel from high-resolution stereo imagery; and 3D Buildings, a new capability that generates a realistic and accurate representation of the interior and exterior of a building.
