NASA IMAGE PROCESSING CONTRACT AWARDED TO ELECTRONIC IMAGERY

 NASA IMAGE PROCESSING CONTRACT AWARDED TO ELECTRONIC IMAGERY
 DELRAY BEACH, Fla., May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Electronic Imagery, whose ImageScale PLUS is the first image processing software used aboard a space shuttle, has received a Phase II research and development contract from NASA. The half-million dollar award is for the development and pilot production of an Orbiter System Imaging Card (OSIC), to process high-definition full color images on board spacecraft. The new card will combine the latest in imaging hardware and software and greatly speed the transmission of high quality electronic still pictures to earth.
 The OSIC contract announcement follows a series of successful space flights on Discovery and Endeavour, during which Electronic Imagery's software was used together with a high-resolution electronic still camera. Astronauts closely examined and enhanced captured images on a Grid laptop computer and readied them for downlink transmission to ground-based mission scientists. The system permitted evaluation, recommendations and adjustments in near real-time, avoiding missed or marginal pictures.
 The versatile ImageScale PLUS program, installed on personal computers, is also being successfully applied in medical diagnosis and treatment, microscopy, law enforcement, agriculture, machinevision for automation, and textile analysis and design. The software processes digital data from a myriad of sources, including CCD cameras, live and recorded video, scanners, microscopes, ultrasound or MRI devices. Features allow enlarging and processing portions of images independent of display monitor resolution, lossless compression/decompression, and full-color transformations. ImageScale PLUS also includes a full complement of drawing and text utilities.
 Electronic Imagery, located in Delray Beach, Fla., is one of 65 small, high technology firms singled out by NASA for Phase II contracts under the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program. Objectives of the program are to stimulate innovation by using small businesses to meet government research needs and to encourage commercial application of federally funded research advancements.
