Developer of remote capture and measurement devices inks In-Q-Tel deal

ikeGPS, which makes remote measurement and 3-D modeling gadgets, has inked a technology development agreement with CIA venture capital wing In-Q-Tel, it announced.

The firm develops handheld tools that allow users to point a device at a remote object -- such as a building -- and capture its global positioning system location, as well as technology that allows you to measure the height of an object such as a pole, even when the base of the object is obscured, the company said. Its tools have been sought after by the Interior Department, contracting databases indicate.

The pact with In-Q-Tel will allow the firm to advance its remote capture and measurement devices, the firm said, without disclosing further details.
