KEYW develops custom products for its Intelligence, Surveillance and Special Military customers from an operational viewpoint and always have the end-user in mind when designing. Our product design and development processes address all aspects of a system’s lifecycle – from concept to operational system. Our customers walk in with an idea, concept, prototype or deficiency in a current system and walk out with a fieldable solution. We rely on our in-depth understanding and partnering with customers to ensure our solutions are solving the right real-world operational requirements.
KEYW Corporation’s BuckEye Electro-Optical (EO) Framing Camera is a commercially available system that supports a diverse range of applications at various altitudes, resolutions, rates, and aerial platforms. Continuously supporting mapping missions around the globe since 2004, the present generation of the BuckEye EO Framing Camera incorporates lessons learned from a wide array of mapping missions that enable it to support today’s dynamic and rigorous requirements. Adhering to open architecture principles, it is easily customized to fit multiple mission profiles and is rapidly integrated with other sensor modalities.
Aerial Collection Services
KEYW Corporation’s Aerial Collection Services are commercially offered worldwide to support Border Protection, Maritime Domain Awareness, Geological & Mineral Survey, Human Geography Studies, and Natural Disaster Response through our contractor-owned, contractor-operated fleet of aircraft. Under limited distribution, Aerial Collection Services are offered for military support applications, to produce target-accurate geospatial foundation-level products in support of counter-terrorist insurgency operations and irregular warfare mission planning. Service offerings include Pre-Deployment Operations, Site Survey, Logistics Planning, Sensor Payload Integration, Data Collection, Aircraft Maintenance, On-Site Logistics, and Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination (PED) Integration Services. The company also designs, builds, and integrates compact hyperspectral, multispectral, and high-resolution digital imaging systems suitable for light aircraft, helicopters, and UAVs. Our flagship reconnaissance system, the BuckEye Electro-Optical Mapping System, has distinguished KEYW as a leading provider of low and medium altitude, geo-precise, high-resolution digital imaging solutions. This system collects precise high-resolution imagery: 1cm at 1000’ AGL/10cm at 10,000’ AGL with 1-3 meter geo-referenced GPS/IMU accuracy.
A pair of HF antennae (6 meters and 9 meters) consisting of a dual polarization, high take-off
angle crossed dipole element. Users have precision control of phase and amplitude between antennas,
facilitate use in direction-finding and electronic beam steering applications. The Turnstile Antenna
provides excellent receive performance on short-range skywave HF circuits in an extremely compact footprint.
The SATCOM UHF Diplexer provides the communications capability for two radios operating simultaneously
on a single antenna to facilitate coordination of tactical maneuvers on land, air, or sea. It permits two
tactical UHF SATCOM transceivers to share one antenna on limited-space combat platforms such as aircraft,
ships and land vehicles. During operation, each radio can transmit or receive information without damage
or interference to the other transceiver.
KEYW works closely with our customers to design, develop and support tailored products for Intelligence,
Surveillance and its Special Military customers. We work with our customers to build trusted partnerships and
focus on operational uses to develop user-centered products that are intuitive to the user. We have the ability
to do most of the work in-house and if we have to go outside we use several trusted partners. KEYW commits
to prototyping, designing and fielding a product not in years, but in weeks.
Risk management is an essential best practice to ensure your program is delivered on time, within cost, and meets the needs of your customer. KEYW’s Risk Mitigation Tool (RMT) is based on RiskNav® by MITRE Corporation to facilitate the risk management process by providing for structured risk data collection via a collaborative web-based tool.
KEYW’s Joint Enterprise Modeling and Analytics™ (JEMA™) is a transformational advancement in the way analysts search for data, process data, collaborate, document, and automate analytic workflows resulting in an evolution of the Analysis tradecraft. The JEMA framework allows installation and insertion of agency, domain, and discipline specific functionality as discrete functional components that interoperate to allow the drag-n-dropcomposition of complex workflows. By introducing the concept of Analytic Models that are visually authored on the desktop then published to the cloud, execution and processing of data occurs closer to where the data resides – within the higher bandwidth and more powerful processing architecture. Refinement happens by affecting and transmitting the analytic model only - represented as a XML document, thus exponentially freeing already limited bandwidth. The result is tremendously greater processing power and data access, sent vastly quicker to the analyst or warfighter for immediate action.
KEYW Corporation provides quick-turn airborne sensor test and evaluation services. Services include Testbed Aircraft, Design and Fabrication, Electro-Optical Camera Systems, Optical Calibration, and Calibration Boresighting. Our facility, located in North Andover, MA, adjacent to Lawrence Municipal Airport, is a combined Hangar/Engineering facility. KEYW’s co-located design engineering group, mechanical fabrication shop, sensor calibration laboratory, and flight test facilities enable us to provide our customers with rapid “design, fly, test, & refine” iteration capability.
