Boeing releases updated geospatial data management tool

Boeing has updated its DataMaster geospatial data management software with improved map, terrain and full-motion video management so that defense and Intelligence Community customers can better protect U.S. and allied citizens and assets around the world.

DataMaster 5.2 supports emerging industry-standard image formats and faster video processing and analysis.

“Our continued investment in DataMaster enables our customers to query and download imagery faster than they could with other systems,” said Jonathan Moneymaker, director of Intelligence Systems Group for Boeing Information Solutions. “Our product improvements provide our customers advantages in speed, accuracy and efficiency to deliver quality imagery analysis in support of critical decisions.”

Commercially available to new and current customers, DataMaster 5.2 includes the following new features:

  • Video text-tagging that incorporates timeline markers so analysts can easily find and play back video of key events
  • The ability to convert other geospatial and remote-sensing imagery into National Imagery Transmission Format Standards 2.1 JPEG2000, which provides additional interoperability with other geospatial data systems
  • A JPIP server that streams JPEG2000 imagery to both DataMaster Client and the DataMaster Image Tool, enabling users to view only part of an image, saving bandwidth and processing time.

DataMaster is a comprehensive suite of commercial-off-the-shelf products and capabilities from Boeing Intelligence Systems Group that provides a single repository for customers’ imagery, maps, elevation data and video, giving their analysts the ability to enhance situational awareness and provide decision support. The DataMaster product family has been providing reliable tools for processing, exploitation and dissemination of geospatial data for more than 20 years.
