New IMPACT(TM) 2.0 Software Delivers Affordable, Actionable Information Analysis Capabilities

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 24, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The struggles of government analysts, investigators and agents to sift through and turn massive amounts of data into actionable information are about to get easier with the forthcoming release of Overwatch's IMPACTTM 2.0 information analysis software. Overwatch is a strategic business of Textron Systems Advanced Systems, an operating unit of Textron Systems, a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company. Company officials said the new version of IMPACT will be available on September 28.

The newest version of the software helps solve the ever-growing data analysis challenge at a fraction of competitors' costs. IMPACT 2.0 offers an innovative and affordable suite of intelligence capabilities that assist in creating actionable knowledge through the collection, linking and analyzing of information from disparate data sources.

IMPACT software enables users to uncover, visualize and understand hidden connections, relationships, patterns and trends that underlie criminal activities, security threats, and more.

"With so many analysts and investigators—from federal agents tracking illicit smuggling networks to local law enforcement personnel searching for suspects—drowning in too much data, we are proud to be offering a powerful set of tools to quickly and cost effectively help turn information into useable knowledge," said Don Hairston, Textron Systems Advanced Systems senior vice president and general manager.

Built on an open architecture system, IMPACT 2.0 is a comprehensive, easy-to-learn and use solution that greatly simplifies investigations while improving timely and secure information sharing. "We've made the software with intuitive interfaces and other features built around the user, while ensuring that it's affordable and scalable to meet the unique needs of investigative bodies of all sizes," said Jon Percy, Overwatch vice president of Law Enforcement and Homeland Security Solutions.
