Textron Systems Releases RemoteView 4 on Linux® Operating System

October 21, 2015

STERLING, V.A. – OCTOBER 21, 2015 – Textron Systems Geospatial Solutions, a business of Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT), announced today the release and availability of its newest product, the RemoteView™ 4 geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) software on the Linux operating system. The Linux-based RemoteView 4 offers the same advanced imagery exploitation capabilities as on the Windows®-based RemoteView 4 software, giving customers a choice in application programs and embedded systems.

The RemoteView 4 has an extensive set of GEOINT tools that enhance the intelligence gathering and analysis process, providing an analyst-centric graphical user interface (GUI), streamlined navigation, as well as workflow aligned toolbars and profiles, which can be customized by individual users and analytical teams. The intuitive design and alignment of these tools, with functional workflows, enable RemoteView 4 users to quickly learn and master the software’s full range of capabilities.

Textron Systems developed a Linux version of its premier software as part of an international teaming venture in 2014. The Linux conversion project included numerous enhancements to the analytical workflows and tools used to imagery exploitation and manipulation.

“By adding the opportunity to use RemoteView 4 on the Linux operating system, we are providing customers with the same advanced capabilities, but with greater freedom of choice,” Daryl Madden, senior vice president and general manager of Geospatial Solutions said. “With this version, we were able to enhance the capabilities – something we are always looking to do to provide our customers with the latest and greatest technology.”

The RemoteView 4 software offers a full spectrum of advanced geospatial exploitation capabilities as well as imagery and multi-image analysis, motion imagery analysis, geospatial data management, publishing and product generation, 3-D visualization, tactical mission planning, precision positioning and third-party-integration. Optional RemoteView extensions, including 3D Pro™, RVConnect™, V-TRAC™, Virtual Mosaic™ and RVSAR™, expand the software's power and functionality with additional customization to meet specific user requirements.

RemoteView 4 Linux is ready for the commercial market.
