The KeyW Holding Corp. announced Feb. 21 it has inked a deal with Intermap Technologies Corp. 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, KeyW’s survey and exploration systems sector vice president. “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,” Intermap Chairman and CEO Patrick Blott said. “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.”
