Dr. Andrew Lee of Harris Corporation Receives 2004 Geospatial Intelligence Research Achievement Award

NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Dr. Andrew Lee, a senior scientist for Harris Corporation's (NYSE: HRS) Government Communications Systems Division (GCSD), was awarded the prestigious U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation's (USGIF) Research Achievement Award during the GEOINT 2004 Symposium (Harris Booth #112) being held October 12-14 at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel. The award is presented to an individual or team for outstanding leadership and research contributions aimed at promoting the craft of geospatial intelligence and developing a stronger community among those who apply spatial data and geoprocessing to national security objectives.

"We are extremely proud of Dr. Lee's achievements and honored that he has been selected for this important industry and academic award," said Russ Haney, president of the National Programs business unit of Harris Corporation's Government Communications Systems Division (GCSD). "Andy and his team have worked to enhance the field of topographical data processing so that more accurate, wide-area topographic products can be provided to the warfighter and the intelligence community in short timelines and large volumes. This award not only recognizes Andy's achievements, but reflects Harris' strong commitment to the geospatial intelligence community."

The efforts of Dr. Lee and his team have been instrumental in proving the viability of cost-effectively delivering large volumes of high-resolution, highly accurate digital elevation models (DEMs) and other topographic products with automatic processing techniques that can be fielded in the near term. Implementation of large-scale, high-resolution, topographic products will enable a wide range of new products for development and exploitation applications such as 3D change detection and precision targeting.

The USGIF is the first and only foundation where members can work together -- outside their own organizational and corporate interests -- toward a mutual goal of improving national and homeland security. USGIF brings together the many disciplines involved in the geospatial intelligence sector to exchange ideas, share best practices, and promote the education and importance of a national geospatial intelligence agenda.
