German Armed Forces Renews Contract for Hexagon Geospatial Products - 20/10/2017


At the HxGN LOCAL Defence Summit, a conference dedicated to defence 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.

Mladen Stojic, Hexagon Geospatial President, explained that the Hexagon Geospatial partner network allows defence customers to benefit from a pool of expertise and tradecraft in the areas of remote sensing, GIS, and photogrammetry for geospatial production workflows.

The Bundeswehr Geoinformation Centre serves the Army, Air Force, Navy, Joint Support Service, Cyber and Information Domain Service and other organisations 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 analyse imagery from satellites, both commercial and non-commercial. BGIC is using Hexagon Geospatial software and strives for new ways to collect, integrate, manage, analyse and share geospatial data in an increasingly complex security environment.
