Sweden-based digital platforms provider Hexagon has agreed to buy Arlington, Va.-based software firm Thermopylae Sciences and Technology for an undisclosed sum to build up a portfolio of 5D visualization systems for U.S. defense and government clients.

Hexagon said Monday it will operate Thermopylae as part of its geospatial division upon completion of the acquisition, which is subject to the approval of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. and other customary closing conditions.

“Thermopylae’s software and domain expertise nicely augment our ability to deliver the visual location intelligence necessary for enabling autonomous connected ecosystems,” said Ola Rollen, president and CEO of Hexagon.

Rollen added the acquisition provides Hexagon an opportunity to advance the adoption of 5D visualization tools in U.S. government agencies and build up the 5D experience delivered through its Hexagon Smart M.App and Luciad portfolios.

Thermopylae provides U.S. government and defense clients with geospatial applications, cloud computing and mobile frameworks to support location intelligence as well as visualization platforms meant for tactical edge mapping operations.
