AVS Provides Data Visualization Software to Boeing for Military and Commercial Applications
Advanced Visual Systems provides data visualization software that helps create three-dimensional (3-D) views of terrain that reveal surface characteristics that are invisible to traditional overhead photography. Using Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) technology that displays aerial test data in colorful contour presentation, Boeing Directed Energy Systems is developing widespread applications in surveillance, mission planning and geology that allows analysts to also detect extremely small terrain anomalies and isolate them for scrutiny.
Data visualization software from AVS has been applied to challenges in a wide range of industries where large and complex data can easily overwhelm a decision-maker’s ability to quickly make sense of rapidly changing information. Boeing’s progressive use of AVS data visualization in its 3-D LIDAR program underscores the value that data visualization provides to tactical and strategic surveillance initiatives and serves as a model implementation for 3-D graphics in military and commercial applications.
