NITF SDK Technology

LEADTOOLS provides functions to load, manipulate, and save NITF files in C/C++ applications. Software developers in the national defense and intelligence communities can utilize LEADTOOLS to add NITF support to their application and extend existing imaging systems to freely exchange image information with other departments and companies that rely on the NITF standard.

Overview of LEADTOOLS NITF SDK Technology

  • Create NITF files
  • Parse NITF files
  • Append data to NITF files
  • Get and set NITF data header

About NITF

The National Imagery Transmission Format Standard (NITFS) is the suite of standards for formatting and exchanging digital imagery and imagery-related products defined by the United States Department of Defense (US DoD). This standard allows for interoperability of systems used for formatting, transmitting, receiving, and processing imagery and imagery-related information, and describes the National Imagery Transmission Format (NITF) file format. For full background on the origination and purpose, and specifications of this standard, refer to the Department of Defense Interface Standard MIL-STD-2500B and the NITFS Technical Board Public Page.
