LuciadCPillar overview


Focusing on needs within the defense domain, LuciadCPillar provides the foundation for advanced geospatial applications. Developers can create high-performance Command and Control and location intelligence applications thanks to the clean design and modular structure of the LuciadCPillar API.

As a configurable API, LuciadCPillar allows you to integrate visualization components, add support for custom data or databases, apply your own custom data styling and symbology, or match the user interface to mirror your company’s unique needs and style. You can also explore data in a 2D or 3D map view.

Why you should choose LuciadCPillar:

  • Build C++ or C# mission-critical desktop-based solutions that handle geospatial data with the accuracy required for mission planning
  • Work with standardized defense symbology formats, including MS2525 and APP-6
  • Visualize real-time dynamic data, such as flights, vessels, or people, with tens of thousands of moving assets
  • Manage different data and maps in different projections, in 2D and 3D
  • Build touch-based Android applications for situational awareness in the field, including disconnected environments
  • Prepare your mission data and transfer data packages to Android devices
