Geospatial Intelligence Center
The National Insurance Crime Bureau tapped Vexcel Imaging as a foundational partner in the Geospatial Intelligence Center, a coalition of companies that have come together to transform how federal and state agencies, first responders and insurers respond to natural disasters.
The center’s focus is on delivering imagery quickly to save lives in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. For example, after Hurricane Irma hit Florida in 2017, Vexcel flew its UltraCam Osprey camera over 506 square miles of the hurricane’s path. Information on an additional 13,787 miles was collected using Vexcel’s UltraCam Eagle. The imagery was processed and delivered to first responders and law enforcement within 24 hours.
