HUNTSVILLE, Ala., September 30, 2015
Intergraph Government Solutions (IGS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Intergraph Corporation, a Hexagon company, serving the U.S. federal market, was awarded a contract by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) U.S. Forest Service to provide image processing software across the U.S. Forest Service enterprise.
IGS will provide capabilities for core image processing and photogrammetry through Hexagon Geospatial's Power Portfolio, including ERDAS IMAGINE for remote sensing and IMAGINE Photogrammetry. Integration of these products into the organization allows the U.S. Forest Service to perform mission-critical image processing and analysis on nearly 200 million acres of land for objectives such as forest restoration and emergency response to wildfires.
"The U.S. Forest Service is a long-standing customer of IGS and Hexagon software. This purchase provides the agency with the most advanced geospatial technology for monitoring and managing national forest resources," said Joe Fehrenbach, CEO and president of IGS.
The result of a competitive best-value procurement, the award includes a base contract period of one year and an additional four option years. As part of the selection process, the U.S. Forest Service required live demonstrations of the proposed workflow technologies with government-provided datasets and rigorous requirements related to multiple areas of need in their business mission.
