NORCROSS, Ga., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At the HxGN LOCAL Defense Summit, a conference dedicated to defense and security in Western Europe, Hexagon Geospatial announced that the Bundeswehr Geoinformation Centre (BGIC) recently renewed a large software maintenance contract for Hexagon Geospatial products.

The two-year renewal is for more than 100 licenses, mainly within the GeoMedia and ImageStation product families. The contract also includes consulting for workflow optimization.

The contract was issued to Geosystems, a Hexagon Geospatial Premium Partner, which will work closely with the local subsidiary of Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure in Bonn and Munich to support BGIC.

“The strong Hexagon Geospatial partner network allows our defense customers to benefit from a unique pool of expertise and tradecraft in the areas of remote sensing, GIS, and photogrammetry for geospatial production workflows,” said Mladen Stojic, Hexagon Geospatial President. “This ensures that our defense customers always have access to the latest and most accurate technology available to ensure that their mission planning and decision-making can be done in the fastest and safest way possible.”

The Bundeswehr Geoinformation Centre serves the Army, Air Force, Navy, Joint Support Service, Cyber and Information Domain Service and other organizations in the German Armed Forces. They provide geospatial information about physical features of the Earth, both natural and constructed.

Image interpreters use the remote sensing software to analyze imagery from satellites, both commercial and non-commercial. BGIC is using Hexagon Geospatial software and strives for new ways to collect, integrate, manage, analyze, and share geospatial data in an increasingly complex security environment.
