TeraLogics is a leading provider of real-time Full Motion Video (“FMV”) processing, exploitation, and dissemination (“PED”) products and solutions for the Department of Defense (“DoD”), Intelligence Community (“IC”), and commercial customers. The Company’s products sit at the center of the DoD’s FMV Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (“ISR”) dissemination architecture.
