French technology company Thales has launched a new geographic modelling system at Eurosatory in Paris.

GeoMaker is a modular system that produces high-accuracy 2D and 3D geographic data to remotely recreate an operating environment.

The system is being marketed to the defence sector to service the demand from military and security forces for up-to-date geographic and geospatial data.

By combining standard maps and images with satellite and tactical data, GeoMaker can produce and verify models of complex environments extremely quickly, according to Thales C4I defence and security systems division manager Didier Seyler.

"GeoMaker is an innovative solution boasting optimum architecture designed to adapt to users' operational requirements and provide excellent cost-effective performance," he said.
