BAE Systems to provide GEOINT capability for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) has selected BAE Systems for three contract awards to help NGA strengthen near real-time access to commercially created geospatial data, enriched content and community-sourced information in a cost-effective manner to improve decision-making timelines.
As one of only two companies down-selected to provide all three Janus programs – Janus Geomatics Precise Imagery, Janus Geography, and Janus Geomatics Elevation – BAE Systems will pursue future orders as part of three separate 10-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts worth up to $1.52 billion under the Janus program.
BAE Systems will use a full range of GEOINT sources, harness the power of cloud processing services, and leverage automation and artificial intelligence to continuously enrich content tailored to fit customers’ requirements. In addition, the Company will use predictive analysis models and change detection tools, enabling a focus on the areas most critical to end users. A suite of machine learning algorithms, automated workflows, and upstream quality assurance will ensure the most current and reliable GEOINT is available on demand.
Kevin Malone, Vice President and General Manager of Analytics Systems at BAE Systems, said: “Policy-makers, warfighters, intelligence professionals, and first responders all depend on accurate geospatial data. In an increasingly complex and fast-paced world, the demand is rising and timelines decreasing. Janus positions NGA to meet these expectations.”
