Terrain Modeling

Utilizing our state-of-the-art Socet Set, NGATE, and Socet GxP software, BAE Systems employs a team of more than 80 specialists experienced in producing terrain data from SAR, NTM satellite, commercial satellite and aerial imagery.

BAE Systems was one of two firms responsible for producing DTED-2 from the historic Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM). This dataset was the first worldwide and seamless terrain database to be produced; a project that we completed in just 2 years.

Using our experience and innovative automated terrain generation techniques, BAE Systems introduced High Resolution Terrain (HRTe) data into the NGA production environment. HRTe has become a staple Program of Record terrain data layer for the broader Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) market. We have generated more than 75 million square kilometers of terrain data for the community.

BAE Systems GP&S provides expertise in:

● Automated terrain modeling from various sources
● Socet Set® and NGATE
● Fusion of DTM/DSM models with imagery
● 3-D models for visualizations and fly-throughs
