PCI Geomatics Wins Canadian Space Agency Contract

Feb 2001
RICHMOND HILL, Ontario, Feb. 22 -- PCI Geomatics, developer of geomatics software and solutions based on its remote sensing, digital photogrammetry, spatial analysis and cartographic editing programs, announced the award of a contract with the Canadian Space Agency under the Earth Observation Application Development Program (EOADP), which will develop new hyperspectral capabilities. These capabilities are to be developed within PCI Geomatics' new Geomatica product line.
   PCI Geomatics is one of nearly fifty contracts to be awarded during the first round of endowments by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) for both the Earth Observation Application Development Program (EOADP) and the Space Technology Development Program (STDP). The sum total of all contracts awarded during this phase of the programs is estimated to be close to $12 million
   The new hyperspectral capabilities being implemented are derived from the Imaging Spectrometer Data Analysis System (ISDAS), a research system developed by the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing (CCRS). The ISDAS capabilities will be enhanced using new CSA hyperspectral vector quantization compression techniques. PCI Geomatics has recently acquired a license to commercialize ISDAS technology and foresees providing their customers with an improved environment that supports the rapid development and implementation of hyperspectral data processing algorithms.
