Luciad was founded in 1999 with the goal of developing high performance, interactive geographical mapping software. Working with a team of graphics, geodesy and numerical mathematics specialists, Luciad compiled the first version of a Java software library for building air command and control systems and air traffic management systems.
In March 2000, Luciad shipped its first commercial software product: LuciadMap#8482. Since then, LuciadMap#8482 has been the number one toolbox for application development in the defense and security, aviation and maritime navigation industries. LuciadMap#8482 has been adopted by leading solution providers in these sectors, including EADS, Thales, Lockheed Martin and Raytheon.
Luciad continues to grow its customer base and has added three products to its product portfolio: LuciadATCPlayback#8482, Luciad Web Map Server Suite#8482, and Lucy#8482. Most recently, Luciad began developing solutions for maritime navigation. Now a dominant player in the European aviation and security sectors, Luciad is currently expanding into North American and Asian markets. – less–ZoomInfo
