Raytheon wins two National Geospatial Agency contracts worth up to $600M

Raytheon has secured two contracts worth a combined value of up to $600 million from the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency to develop advanced data automation, analytics and artificial intelligence capabilities.

Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services will lead the Elevation Content and Precise Imagery programs, which are part of NGA’s Janus initiative to build systems that give agency partners access to NGA content services.

To align with NGA’s “AAA” strategy — Automation, Augmentation and Artificial Intelligence — Raytheon will apply its experience of advanced photogrammetric algorithm development to automate NGA data production capabilities while streamlining processes and workflows.

Raytheon currently works with NGA on several projects and was recently awarded multiple contracts under the agency’s “BIG Broad Agency Announcement or BIG BAA” initiative.

Jane Chappell, Vice President of Global Intelligence Solutions, Raytheon IIS, said: “The Janus program is just the latest example of NGA’s forward-leaning approach to technology, and we’re ready to support them as a key partner in this new initiative.”
