NVIDIA Geo Intelligence Accelerator

Speed up Defense and Geo Intelligence Applications with NVIDIA GeoInt Accelerator

Your GeoInt Applications – Up To 10x Faster, Try GPUs and See Better Results

The Defense and Geospatial Intelligence community heavily relies on accurate and timely information in its strategic and day-to-day operations. Intelligence gathering and assessment are essential parts of these activities that comprises data coming from a number of diverse sources such as satellites, UAVs, surveillance cameras, and radar.

Converting the raw data collected from such diverse sources into actionable information requires a significant infrastructure. The NVIDIA GeoInt Accelerator is the first accelerated platform that enables defense and homeland security analysts to accurately generate actionable intelligence from petabytes of data, images and video gathered from satellites, surveillance cameras, drones, and sensors. Powered with GPUs, Image and Video Processing can run up to 10x-75x faster compared to CPU only systems.

Now you can experience these speed ups first hand, FREE!
