The ability to build, view and analyze the operational picture in a geospatial reference is critical for successful military and intelligence operations. The SkylineGlobe suite of applications provides this utility for every phase of the mission, from the real-time visualization needed for training exercises and command and control activities, to the rapid and easy-to-use tactical analysis capabilities necessary for mission execution.

Mission Planning, Rehearsal, and Debriefing
Evaluate potential approaches to a target based on surrounding terrain, possible choke points and other critical information. TerraExplorer comes equipped with both traditional terrain analysis tools and more advanced geospatial analysis capabilities including: Line-of-Sight, Viewshed Analysis and Threat Dome. Walk troops step-by-step through 3D, photo-realistic, geographically accurate visualizations of anticipated operational situations. After a mission, accurately reenact the military operation, evaluating each progressive step and easily updating or modifying the 3D model based on new intelligence.
With TerraExplorer’s interfaces to military specific data feeds such as Blue Force tracking, Cursor-on-Target, standard GPS feeds, and specific UAV platforms, users can view real-time information from multiple sensor sources within the relevant geospatial context.
Command and Control
Vast amounts of updated imagery and elevation data can be made accessible within minutes so that deployment plans and lines of attack can be modified to reflect the latest intelligence and tactical information. View live updates as real-time data becomes available.
Create a terrain database “on-the-fly” using the latest satellite pictures of a target area. Feature layers added to the 3D terrain, such as mine fields, utility lines and communication infrastructure further increase situational awareness.
