Exelis announces new mobile platform to effectively manage and disseminate geospatial data across shared networks
ROCHESTER, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ITT Exelis (NYS: XLS) will make its Jagwire™ solution for the management and dissemination of tactical imagery and video available on a mobile platform. Jagwire Mobile allows users, such as soldiers operating in environments where bandwidth is limited, to capture, process and rapidly access imagery and data from remote networks.
"Exelis is a global leader in allowing our customers to move beyond mere image acquisition and into image interchange and true knowledge sharing," said Jim Phillips, director of the Exelis geospatial intelligence solutions business area. "The Exelis Jagwire solution provides warfighters one seamless user interface to search, discover and exploit still imagery, wide-area motion imagery and full-motion video, which improves decision making and response when seconds are critical."
The Jagwire Mobile solution offers much of the same functionality of the Jagwire enterprise version, which is important for users in bandwidth-constricted or hostile areas. Taking advantage of advanced data compression techniques, Jagwire Mobile allows video and image capture as well as processing into the Jagwire repository where the imagery is indexed and becomes searchable by other users on shared networks. The mobile version of Jagwire supports Android 4.1.1 and higher. Support for iOS 6 and HTML5 will be available later this year.
