Gallium software recruited by US Navy

Gallium.jpgGallium Visual Systems’ InterMAPhics display rendering software is selected by lead contractor Lockheed Martin for an upgrade of the U.S. Navy’s Aegis Weapons System (AWS). As part of its cruiser modernization program, the navy will leverage Gallium’s solution to upgrade the AWS on seven cruisers to provide improved threat detection and enhanced anti-air warfare performance. It will also help transition the system to a commercial off-the-shelf open architecture computing and display environment. “We have always focused on providing software that satisfies the needs of the world’s most demanding display systems. The Navy Open Architecture model’s emphasis on license software has made it easier to do business and provide improved support,” says Gallium president Leif Olsen. “As a result, we are able to provide the Navy with software designed for application evolution via licensing that achieves significant total ownership cost avoidance.” Ottawa’s Gallium Visual Systems Inc. is a subsidiary of Norway-headquartered Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace.
