Very active in the SBIR space over a long period (since 1998) soon after the firm was first founded, Kitware, Inc. is focused on open-source software and state of the art technology to provide advanced custom solutions for various complex technical problems in the fields of computer vision, medical imaging, visualization, 3D data publishing, and technical software development. With facilities and a presence in 4 US states and in France, the Kitware team has made useful contributions to a variety of open-source software systems, including the Visualization Tookit (VTK), the Insight Segmentation and Registration Toolkit (ITK), CMake and ParaView, with impact in areas such as visualization, data publishing, medical imaging, quality software process, computer vision, and informatics. Todays advances in scientific research, engineering design, and knowledge discovery are increasingly being fueled by data-centric computing, however, Kitware's business model is based on the idea that the effectiveness of an organization depends on its ability to collect, store, process, mine, and visualize data. Scientists and analysts require efficient access to data servers that enable clients to access and manage the data repository. Kitware has been a pioneer in the area of open-access scientific data management. Midas, the data management platform developed by the firm, was created to build applications that handle data management problems across many domains.
