DENVER, March 5 /CNW/ - Intermap Technologies Corp. (TSX:IMP) (AIM:IMAP)
today announced that it has been awarded a US$3.1 million contract to collect
and deliver geographic three-dimensional elevation and imagery data in
Southeast Asia. The Company will utilize one of its five aircraft equipped
with their proprietary IFSAR (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar)
mapping technology to complete the project. Under the terms of the agreement,
the company will deliver Digital Surface Model (DSM) and Orthorectified Radar
Imagery (ORI) data incrementally throughout 2007.
Intermap's revolutionary IFSAR technology enables the Company to map
large areas more quickly and efficiently than any other airborne radar mapping
technology in the world. The Company's fixed-wing aircraft, equipped with
advanced IFSAR platforms, can operate day or night, in clear or cloudy
conditions -- virtually anywhere, anytime.
"The award of this contract is a testament to our ability to deliver on
commitments to government agencies and commercial enterprises around the
world," commented Garth Lawrence, Intermap's senior vice president of
operations. "The client chose Intermap for our ability to create precise
digital elevation models and radar imagery, while not being hindered by
weather. This is particularly important to the client due to the inclement
weather patterns in the region and their need for timely, accurate data."
