Exelis Inc. has evolved its capabilities in large space-based imaging systems to a full portfolio of smaller form factor solutions. Exelis small satellite solutions are an example of innovative product offerings the company has as part of its strategic focus on intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and analytics. Exelis designed the imaging system for IKONOS, the first commercial imaging satellite, as well as the entire imaging system consisting of a 1.1 meter aperture telescope for the world's high resolution, super-spectral WorldView-3 satellite. In addition, Exelis has designed and built every domestic commercial remote sensing imaging system, including QuickBird, WorldView-1, GeoEye-1, WorldView-2 and the soon-to-be-launched WorldView-4 satellite.

Exelis Visual Information Solutions partners with CloudEO

Exelis Visual Information Solutions (Exelis VIS) has entered a new partnership with CloudEO to offer ENVI image analysis software in a virtualized, cloud environment. CloudEO teams with geospatial content and software providers, such as Exelis VIS, to offer consumers a unique service that brings together geospatial data, geospatial software, and the processing power of the cloud. With ENVI software now available on the scalable CloudEO infrastructure, businesses can easily predict software costs for projects, rapidly scale up operations to handle large scale projects and even develop products and services that can be sold to potential customers. Designed and built by Exelis VIS, ENVI software provides scientifically proven image-analysis results in an easy to use interface — from the geographical information systems analyst who needs to enhance mapping applications for better geographic awareness to the research scientist using imagery to aid in critical discoveries, a variety of professionals use ENVI software. Through this partnership, anyone can access ENVI software via their desktop while simultaneously taking advantage of the computational capability of working in the cloud. Customers can sign up for as much or as little “time” with the software as they need based on their project requirement. ENVI is available now on the CloudEO store for as little as €189 per month.

Exelis Demonstrates Networking Technology Enhancements to Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System

During the recent Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiment (AEWE) demonstration at Fort Benning, Georgia, Exelis emonstrated a network deployment based on new capability enhancements to the Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS). The new technology enhancements provide greater networking capability for SINCGARS tactical radios -- the most widely fielded radio system in the U.S. Army -- with more than 580,000 delivered to date. Some of the demonstrated enhancements were the Embedded Tactical Data Router (ETDR), C4i Switchplus, SideHat® and the latest release of software for the SINCGARS radio platform. As part of the SINCGARS Software Version 9 release, users now have access to SINCGARS – Universal Network Situational Awareness. This software update provides position location information for every radio and beacon-equipped platform or soldier on the battlefield. During the AEWE, the capability was integrated with both Joint Battle Command-Platform and Nett Warrior computers resulting in a common operating picture at the company and platoon levels. Additionally, the ETDR that was demonstrated at AEWE provides data routing among not only different radios, but also among different waveforms. The ETDR was also integrated into the existing SINCGARS footprint. The Switchplus Combat Net Radio Gateway was also demonstrated giving the command centers the ability to cross band and monitor different radios and networks from a remote location. This capability provides mission essential command and control while enabling cross banding between different waveforms, frequencies, and disparate radio/communication systems within law enforcement, DoD, first responders and other agencies.
