DENVER, CO, Jan. 30, 2017 /CNW/ - Intermap (TSX: IMP), (ITMSF:BB), a leading geospatial intelligence Corporation, today announced that it has entered into an agreement to provide multi-frequency, high resolution radar mapping. Intermap will conduct an airborne survey, assign accurate coordinates (orthorectified data), and produce imagery and elevation products that will support risk management, infrastructure and security applications. In addition, the Company will provide supervisors who will train, assist and monitor local personnel and operations. A milestone payment of $2.67 million is expected during the first quarter of 2017.
Intermap has also entered into a contract to upgrade its multi-frequency radar system.
"Intermap's new airborne radar technology allows remote sensing of a wide range of geospatial targets, with applications for infrastructure, risk management, security, and damage assessment," commented Patrick Blott, Chairman and CEO of Intermap. "This continuing program, for a sovereign client, demonstrates our unique ability to fill gaps, where the performance of competing optical technology, whether from satellites, vehicles, drones, or ground sensors, is often inadequate."
"Our radar upgrade has strengthened Intermap's dominant position in its key niche - cloud covered geographies where optical systems struggle. Our technology removes clouds as an obstacle. It can also see through the tree canopy," added Keith Tennant, SVP of Engineering of Intermap.
At the same time, Intermap announced the promotion of Jennifer Bakken to Senior Vice President of Finance and acting CFO. "Jennifer has done tremendous work and demonstrated leadership throughout our transitional period," commented Patrick Blott, Chairman and CEO of Intermap. "There is no better confirmation of Intermap's talent than its ability to promote internally to a senior position. I want to thank Michael Hoehn for helping to transition the finance team during the past three months."
