  • Architecting robust, adaptive next generation service-based solutions for the Cloud
  • Building new innovative Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) / Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions that differentiate and deliver extraordinary value
  • Improving existing SaaS/PaaS platform functionality and performance
  • Designing state-of-the-art, standards-based data models and related tools for next generation systems
Defense and Intel Market

Defense and Intel Market

Most defense and intelligence problems have geospatial, temporal, semantic and/or social context, yet it is rare to find effective tools that seamlessly integrate a unified set of geospatial-temporal-semantic-social capabilities into mission workflows. Image Matters tackles this domain with its robust, highly-extensible software service technologies. Our solution portfolio is bolstered by extensive expert knowledge and skills based on a continuous stream of groundbreaking R&D. We support our clients in their mission to: evolve geospatial data and service requirements and standards; architect next generation solutions; develop Cloud-based platforms to geospatially-enable the enterprise; and provide direct geospatial and GEOINT support to warfighters.

  • Experts in structured analytics
  • All things geospatial, temporal, semantic, social and/or mobile
  • Cutting-edge SaaS/PaaS service solutions for the Cloud
  • Agile enterprise architecture and systems engineering
