Product Generation & Interoperability

VANTAGE™ users need to quickly generate imagery products for initial exploitation and ensure that missions are proceeding correctly.  Once imagery products are generated, VANTAGE™ can rapidly produce final products using templates or formatting to send to other exploitation or presentation applications.


  • Templates
  • Direct-to-PowerPoint
  • User annotations and drawing
  • Manual and automatic cues
  • Send-to-SocetGXP (products designed with Socet GXP imaging software compatibility)
  • Mosaics
