Veridian Awarded Air Force Imaging Contract

Photonics.com
Apr 2003
ARLINGTON, Va., April 29 -- Veridian Corp. announced it has been awarded a contract worth up to $37.7 million from the US Air Force's Electronic Systems Center at Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass., to develop satellite image processing systems in support of the Air Force's Eagle Vision program.

The contract includes a base award of $7.4 million and options to supply additional systems, and provisions for Veridian to supply training and support for the Eagle Vision program for six years. Veridian has played a key role in the program since it was developed in the early 1990s.

Eagle Vision provides a platform to downlink and process commercial satellite imagery into "geocoded" electronic images for use by Air Force mission planners and intelligence analysts. Since commercial imagery is produced from unclassified sources, it can be more widely distributed to both US armed forces and coalition partners.
