DHS has procured PIXIA's software to enable the rapid ingest and dissemination of large amounts of satellite and aerial imagery. PIXIA's software allows for high performance image access via Open Geospatial Consortium(R) (OGC) standard web services, such as a Web Map Service (WMS) and a Web Coverage Service (WCS). This provides a fully interoperable framework that easily integrates into an Enterprise Service Oriented Architecture (SOA).
"In order to suitably meet the Department of Homeland Security's growing geospatial imagery needs, it is critical that imagery be made available to the DHS mission partners in a timely, scalable and high-performance manner. We are pleased that DHS has chosen our technology to assist in accomplishing this important aspect of its mission," said Rudi Ernst, PIXIA CEO and Co-founder.
PIXIA's technology allows for ingesting imagery into a server at rates that exceed current commercial systems by an order of magnitude. Under this program, PIXIA will provide the ability to continuously add new imagery to the server as it is being acquired without interruption to the service. This capability should significantly improve the lag time from image collection to dissemination as well as improve the speed at which imagery may be accessed and the overall end user experience.
