Overwatch Enhances ELT® Geospatial Intelligence Software’s User Interface

STERLING, Va. – April 16, 2013 – Overwatch, an operating unit of Textron Systems, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, announced today the latest release of its ELT® geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) software, featuring a new intuitive and customizable user interface. ELT, which fuses image processing functionality with geographic information systems support, is used by analysts for military intelligence, mission planning and disaster management.

The contemporary, ribbon-based interface in the new version of ELT enables users to customize the screen to better visualize and tailor the software’s wide variety of image viewing and analysis applications to their specific mission needs. The software interface offers large, logically-grouped high-resolution icons and an improved workflow to reduce the time needed to process commands and execute tasks. “With a focus on analysts’ needs and the time constraints they work under, we’ve made ELT as easy and efficient as possible to operate, decreasing the time required to become proficient in its full range of analysis capabilities,” said Jim Dolan, senior vice president and general manager, Overwatch Geospatial Solutions.

Shipments of the latest version of Overwatch’s ELT software are underway for customers under active maintenance and support agreement. The software update is also now available to new users. More information is available by contacting GeoSalesTeam@overwatch.textron.com or by calling 800-937-6881. Overwatch’s Global ImageViewer® (GIV) software offers international military and commercial users many of the same features and benefits delivered by ELT software, with a similar contemporary and easy-to-use interface.
