Space Imaging to Evaluate Image Search Technology
Jun 2003
DENVER, June 11 -- Space Imaging has won a contract from the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) to evaluate a new technology enabling the rapid search of large imagery databases for specific elements such as vehicles, buildings, weapon systems and geographical landmarks. Evaluation of the technology started in April and will be finished in August 2003.

"This relationship will allow government and industry to work together to assess new optical and digital technology directed toward issues that could greatly benefit imagery users," said Jim Crawford, contracting officer representative from NIMA's Basic and Applied Research Office.

The technology, created by Look Dynamics of Longmont, Colo., combines optical and digital processing to build intelligent shape- and pattern-based databases. These databases can be quickly and easily searched for specific structures, objects and terrain features. Under its contract with NIMA, Space Imaging will evaluate the technology for national security applications.
