IAI Awarded NGA Contract to Develop Automated Image-Geolocation Process

ROCKVILLE, Md.—April 22, 2021Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) to develop a fully-automated geolocation system to estimate cross-view image similarity for the purpose of estimating geographic location from still imagery and video.

In this contract, IAI will develop a system that utilizes still imagery and video data to produce digital representations of topographical features and label the features according to type, without any human intervention. This system has high commercial potential within defense agencies as well as commercial markets in cartography, survey, and land use development.

“IAI is proud to support the NGA’s efforts to advance the state of the art in imagery analysis technology,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.

IAI is a leader in research and development for optical systems, machine vision, autonomy, human-machine interfaces, and robotic inspection. IAI develops AI/ML-based products and customized solutions to address government and industry needs in application areas such as real-time image stabilization, target detection and tracking, supervised semi-autonomy, and intuitive remote operation of robotic systems.
