GEOSPATIAL SOFTWARE COMPONENTS

LuciadLightspeed is widely recognized as the leading set of high-performance geospatial software components. Major international companies and organizations, Systems Integrators and Original Equipment Manufacturers use LuciadLightspeed to rapidly develop geospatial situational awareness applications for mission-critical operations.

PRACTICAL INFORMATION

LuciadLightspeed can be used independently of any other Luciad technology. It is possible to extend the functionality of LuciadLightspeed with many optional components. The additional components allow users, for example, to connect to other Luciad products such as LuciadFusion, LuciadMobile and LuciadRIA, as well as other non-Luciad applications.

KEY BENEFITS

  • BEST-IN-CLASS PERFORMANCE

Unprecedented user experience with hundreds of thousands of track updates per second, on-the-fly LOS calculations, real-time data access and without preprocessing.

  • RETAINED GEOSPATIAL POSITIONING ACCURACY

Ensures centimeter-level precision on world scale for visualization, transformation and calculation of any data.

  • PLATFORM INDEPENDENCE

Runs on all platforms (with or without GPU, server, desktop, tablet, embedded, etc.) that support Java, including Windows, Linux and Solaris.

  • FLEXIBILITY

Allows for customization and ensures interoperability of your applications, allowing you to meet 100% of your project requirements.

  • EASE OF USE AND LOWEST TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP

Makes for efficient and sustainable applications by enabling rapid development, customization, ensuring source code and backward binary compatibility, and eliminating the need for data pre-processing.

  • COMPLETENESS
