Overwatch's GeoCatalog Workgroup Software Enables Teams to Rapidly Stand Up
Shared Geospatial Data Repositories

ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GEOINT 2012 – Overwatch, a
strategic business of Textron Systems Advanced Systems, an operating unit of
Textron Systems, a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company, introduced today its
GeoCatalog Workgroup software, designed to enable users in small teams to
easily share and manage geospatial data and databases on a shared local
network. Overwatch is demonstrating the software's capabilities during the
GEOINT 2012 Symposium, October 9 – 11, at booth 401.

GeoCatalog Workgroup offers database and file management capabilities to add
and remove cataloged data as well as associated files including images, shape
files and video. It provides automated ingesting and monitors directories for
incoming data. The software also delivers email notifications to its set of
users for standing queries of requested information, publishes point feature
data to a shared repository, and provides metrics for images received and
ingested and other performance areas.

"GeoCatalog Workgroup helps facilitate collaboration within small analyst
teams," explains Overwatch Vice President of Geospatial Solutions Skip
Maselli. "For instance, with this software an intelligence cell of 10 users
can quickly access, share and manage a large number of geospatial image files.
This ensures more timely and effective collaboration, and assists the team in
the organization and analysis of important data."

The new product complements Overwatch's single-user GeoCatalog Desktop tool,
an extension of its RemoteViewTM Pro geospatial analysis software, and
GeoCatalog Server software, which provides enterprise-level cataloging and
geospatial data management to large numbers of users.

Overwatch is preparing GeoCatalog Workgroup software for shipment in November.
