HANOVER, Md. – The KeyW Holding Corporation (NASDAQ:KEYW) today announced that it was selected by Intermap Technologies Corporation (TSX:IMP) to provide advanced radar imaging technology. Under the contract, KeyW will supply its KeyRadar® product customized for P-Band radar and processing, providing imagery in challenging operational environments.
KeyW's KeyRadar® is comparable to X-ray vision in the mapping world, said Dr. Kevin Gunde, vice president of KeyW's Survey and Exploration Systems sector. It allows us to map terrain in the most obscure and challenging environments, such as those covered by heavy clouds and foliage.
To complement our ability to create high-resolution data in every weather and light condition (daytime, nighttime, cloudy, rainy, forest fires, etc.), we have now added foliage penetration to our imaging capabilities, said Patrick Blott, Intermap's chairman and chief executive officer. We selected KeyRadar® P-Band because the combination with our interferometric synthetic aperture radar system offers unmatched capabilities for high-resolution mapping where optical satellites struggle.
KeyRadar is a multi-mission, multi-mode system built on KeyW’s next-generation, software-defined radio/radar architecture that:
- Combines multiple radar bands with sophisticated processing and target classification software;
- Finds obscured targets in challenging operational environments; and
- Enables users to field new capabilities to operational systems through a software-defined, modular open system architecture.
KeyW is a total solutions provider for the Intelligence, Cyber and Counterterrorism Communities’ toughest challenges. We support the collection, processing, analysis and dissemination of information across the full spectrum of their missions. We employ and challenge more than 1,000 of the most talented professionals in the industry with solving such complex problems as preventing cyber threats, transforming data into intelligence and combating global terrorism.
