Founded in 1988, Applied Coherent Technology (ACT) Corporation has emerged as one of the highly innovative and trusted organizations in the geospatial data applications industry.
ACT was founded by Dr. Erick Malaret. Dr. Malaret holds a PhD from Purdue University in Electrical Engineering with a specialty in Signal/Image Processing and has over 35 years of experience in the field. Dr. Malaret has devoted his career to developing software that enhances the efficiency and quality of the image data analysis process – beginning with his doctoral research in remote sensing and image systems in the 1980’s. Dr. Malaret has focused his efforts and ACT’s research and development resources across the complete image data analysis lifecycle – from sensor data capture and management through analysis and end user results. This unique approach has produced groundbreaking software for managing the entire process, improving research results and enabling significant reuse of data and research findings.
