Itri Corporation was founded in 1998 as a Virginia S-Corporation.
Itri Corporation is an entrepreneurial, very small, woman-owned, S-Corporation headquartered in Springfield, VA. Satellite offices are located in the metropolitan NY area, near Monterey CA, and in the Tidewater area of VA. We are a highly skilled cadre of entrepreneurial and disciplined individuals with experience in the natural sciences, software engineering, information technology, and making data and information available when and where it is needed. Itri Corporation provides technical management and advice, the services associated with the application of the environmental sciences and the technologies that may be employed to assess and characterize the environment. We also develop and implement information fusion and decision support tools that integrate information and sensors and modeling technologies. Itri Corporation also has a system integration and manufacturing business in which we develop, deploy, and operate unique remote sensing equipment for our clients.
Ambitious goals are attained when you pursue them with vigor.
Our first product, cyber-access (Internet kiosks in coffee shops), was deployed in 1999.
Building on our success We started down the path of developing more ambitious information tools.
In 2002 We completed development of "Ambiente™" which is our web-enabled, temporal and spatial information system.
In 2004 We started our consulting and services businesses.
In 2006 We completed development of the Hawk-Eye Remote Sensing System deployed in an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and established a Strategic Partnership with Agrarius LLC (http://www.agrariusLLC.com/)
In 2008 We upgraded and improved the Hawk-Eye Remote Sensing System so that it could be deployed in a small trucks and work vehicles for very high fidelity remote sensing for farmers and building facilities managers.
In 2010 We expanded our information technology offerings with an association with IntraMedia (http://www.itramedia.tv/), an information technology and web development firm.
In January 2011, Agrarius LLC merged into ItriCorp. The Agrarius lines of business are operating as Crop-Vu, Turf-Vu, and Building-Vu. ItriCorp is also now building Hawk-Eye Remote Sensing Systems.
Itri Corporation operates in three business areas:
Consulting and Development Services - Solutions are our focus as we provide the services and technologies to help our partners meet
their objectives. We believe that well thought out needs and goals (even the most ambitious ones) are attainable when
approached in a disciplined manner. We help our partners understand their needs, the environment they are operating in,
and then assist them in applying their available resources in a systems engineering approach to obtain their desired
Area Characterization Services – We deploy and operate the Hawk-Eye System and/or segments of the system to image
and describe an areas, in in very high fidelity, for our customers.
Products – We use our knowledge and experiences gained in working with our partners and customers to develop and build out products designed to make work easier and safer.
- Hawk-Eye – The Hawk-Eye System consists of cameras and other remote sensors that are mounted in/on
best of breed Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and/or Surface Vehicles (eg. trucks and ATVs) fitted with telescoping masts, a
ground based mobile command/control/communications subsystem, and a data processing and dissemination sub-system (Ambiente™).
Hawk-Eye observations include near-real time geo-rectified visual and IR image data and flight-level air temperature,
pressure, and winds for high fidelity modeling that is useful in a wide range of applications. The aerial vehicles
have mass margin for the addition of other sensors. Our customers use the Hawk-Eye System to support their operations
and for Research and Development if new aerial sensors for small UAS and for technique development.
- ItriWare – ItriWare products developed and offered by Itri NY is a collection of software tools
designed to support business processes.
- Ambiente™ - Is a portal for an information and decision support system that facilitates information and resources management
in the local and broad regional environment. Imbedded in the portal is a dynamic geographic information system that is
scripted to access and display very dynamic data and information such as meteorological and coastal ocean and imagery.
The portal is designed for information management rather than for a specific application. Specific applications, become
custom implementations of the framework. We have several specific product implementations of Ambiente™, and are continuing
to add customer driven custom implementations as we grow this business area.
