The acquisition broadens the reach of Intergraph’s software platforms by eliminating the need for custom interface development and expanding distributed processing and control capabilities. The combined offerings provide Intergraph more flexible solutions.

“The acquisition of Augusta Systems brings additional cutting-edge technology and expertise to our offerings, which further advances our position in the evolving marketplace,” said John Graham, president, Intergraph Security, Government & Infrastructure.

Augusta Systems’ EdgeFrontier middleware allows for integration and normalization of data, events and control functions from diverse sources, including sensors; wireless sensor networks; radio-frequency identification (RFID) systems; video devices and systems; access control systems; metering and measurement devices; actuators, databases and file repositories; and other devices, systems and applications. EdgeFrontier also supports remote event or policy-based processing of data and events through a policy engine.

EdgeFrontier is in safety and security deployments, including local emergency response, port and border security, military surveillance and facility and infrastructure security.

The software is also in electric utility smart grid projects and in other industrial monitoring and automation efforts. Prior to the acquisition, Intergraph and Augusta Systems partnered on integrated solutions for safety and security.
