Future Point Integrates dtSearch Into the Starlight Visual Analytics Platform

Future Point Systems, Inc. ( and dtSearch Corp. (, a supplier of enterprise and developer text retrieval software, announced the integration of the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine into the Starlight visual analytics platform. Developed in partnership with Pacific Northwest National Lab (PNNL;, Starlight is a visual analytics platform for advanced information management and analysis in both military and commercial settings. Starlight uses the dtSearch Engine to perform the critical function of indexing XML data.

Starlight is software for "sensemaking," the process of creating situational awareness and understanding in situations of high complexity or uncertainty in order to make decisions. Starlight automatically organizes and summarizes large collections of information and then presents the results in easily interpretable graphical formats.

The dtSearch Engine provides native 64-bit and 32-bit developer access (including .NET, C++, and Java API access for Windows and Linux programmers) to dtSearch’s terabyte indexing and searching. The software can index more than a terabyte of data in a single index—as well as create and instantly search an unlimited number of indexes.

The dtSearch Engine also provides developer access to dtSearch’s file format support. The software can display web-ready content (HTML, PDF, XSL/XML, etc.) with highlighted hits and with all images, links, and formatting intact. Proprietary built-in HTML converters offer hit-highlighted display of other popular file types like MS Office, OpenOffice, ZIP, etc. For database formats like XML and SQL, the dtSearch Engine has precision searching, with support for BLOB data.
