Interoperability is on the loose at GEOINT!


Since my last post I've been busy building online image analytics for demonstration by Exelis VIS and our partners at the GEOINT 2012 Symposium. GEOINT takes place October 8-11 in Orlando, Florida and promises to focus on the evolution of the intelligence community from a system of standalone and stovepiped capabilities to online, on demand access to open and interoperable applications for geospatial exploitation.

Interoperability has been a component of the GEOINT Symposium since its beginning. However, over the past several years we have seen the interoperability topic promoted from single presentation sessions, to panel discussions to pre-planned interoperability demonstrations. Last year and continuing this year interoperability has broken out and will be running rampant among the keynote presentations and on the loose in the exhibition hall.

Exelis VIS is doing our part by providing a series of enterprise image applications built using open standards such as JSON, REST and WPS. These applications provide analytical capabilities like image-to-image registration, change detection, spectral target detection and terrain categorization that will be accessed through online web interfaces built by VIS and our partners.

We are excited to demonstrate this level of interoperability at GEOINT. Please stop by booth #1317 for a guided tour.
