One options includes invoking command line utilities via
Runtime.getRuntime().exec("command parameters") and setting up a

a) convert from NITF to other image format(s)
b) extract metadata like 4-corner info and timestamps:

Two for you to consider:

GDAL utilities


This is all done fairly easily on a unix system, don't know how easy
it is to do in Windows infrastructure but it appears theoretically
