Tactical Aerial Reconnaissance


Spacemetric is a leading developer of image management solutions for spaceborne and airborne and imaging sensors. Its Keystone image management system streamlines the workflow from raw sensor data acquisition to time-critical analysis and reporting applications.

Spacemetric and Keystone offer scalable, customisable solutions for handling bulk volumes of raw image data, allowing analysts to quickly access the information they need. With support for data from a wide range of sensors and platforms, the Keystone software represents a powerful integrated environment for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance applications.more

Capabilities for digital still and motion imagery include:

Geographical Processing capabilities include:

  • Sensor modelling, photogrammetric modelling
  • Enhancement of geometric accuracy
  • Coordinate system transformations
  • Ortho-rectification
  • Unbounded mosaicking
  • Production of image products

Spacemetric serves time-critical applications in operational environments, working closely with operators of satellite and airborne sensors, service providers and solution integrators to meet emerging needs.

Tactical Aerial Reconnaissance

The Keystone image management system offers a powerful solution for tactical aerial reconnaissance and IMINT (imagery intelligence) in military applications. The software catalogues data from a sortie, and identifies which images correspond to key target locations, allowing analysts rapid access to the most relevant and timely information available.

Keystone automatically tags all data with geographical locations, times and other information. This enables mosaicking of imagery from multiple sources and sensors and the display of both archived and real-time imagery in a 3D globe map view.

Full Motion Video Capability

The Keystone image management system offers a sensor agnostic solution that is equally at home handling both still and motion imagery. The software ingests full motion video streams and files, indexing the incoming sensor data for timely data access. It also supports tagging of video segments and frames to enable easy, priority-based forwarding of relevant data to exploitation and analysis applications.

The Keystone system can accept data inputs from a wide range of sensors and platforms, allowing it to provide complete situational awareness for military and security applications.

Sensor Management and Integration

The Keystone system offers support for sensor management and integration of EO/IR, still and motion imagery sensors, and imaging radars carried by satellites, helicopters, fixed wing aircraft or UAVs. The ingested data can be processed via the Keystone Console operator client or be passed to GIS clients, image analysis software and other third-party systems as services or files for additional processing or display.

Support for OGC and STANAG open standards for data formats, library interfaces and data access ensures interoperability and ease of integration.

The family of Keystone image management systems includes

  • Keystone Enterprise: a multi-user data housekeeping, production and data distribution environment, handling very large volumes of a variety of sensor data types. Products can be published to a multitude of users.
  • Keystone Solo: a single-user production system with minimal footprint to support smaller and/or deployed ground stations, with local dissemination of image products.
  • Keystone Cloud: a carefree solution for online management of imagery assets, processing and delivery of services and products to authorised customers.
