Geospatial Systems, Inc. Announce Agreement with Leica Geosystems AG to Bring a New Family of Aerial Imaging Systems to Market

Rochester, NY - September 3, 2008 - Geospatial Systems, Inc. (GSI) and Leica Geosystems AG (Leica) today announced a partnership agreement to bring to market a new generation of image capture and dissemination systems for airborne mapping and surveillance applications.

Imaging system offerings will be based initially on the integration of Leica’s industry leading ALS light distance and ranging (LIDAR) products with GSI’s family of direct georeferenced aerial mapping cameras. First to market is a system based on the GSI medium format, 39-megapixel aerial mapping camera with a field-replaceable removable shutter (patent pending) integrated with Leica’s ALS50/52 sensor. This system offers superior, cost effective, and reliable optical performance with software for mission planning, flight control, in-flight sensor control, and the post-flight image processing necessary to produce map product.

GSI’s modular family of direct georeferenced aerial imaging systems, based on the TerraPix technology platform, including electro-optical, infrared, multi-spectral mapping sensor systems and camera controllers for multi-camera arrays, will enable a rich product offering from the GSI-Leica team.

“Geospatial Systems is pleased to team with Leica to support their strong commitment to product innovation. This agreement is another step in our overall strategy to bring state of the art, customerfocused products to the ASM market”, said Maxime Elbaz, President and CEO, Geospatial Systems, Inc.

“Our agreement with GSI is exciting as it allows two companies to combine their technical expertise, thus reducing the time to bring new, innovative products to the marketplace”, said Juergen Dold, Sr. Vice President, Leica Geosystems AG.
