MELBOURNE, Fla. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) officials in Maryland turned to Harris Corp. (NYSE:HRS) in Melbourne, Florida, for help with efficiently and effectively searching an overwhelming amount of acquired geospatial content, and extracting usable intelligence from that data. It’s a common problem today, in the information age, given the proliferation of sensors and other electro-optics gathering an ever-increasing wealth of data.
Under terms of a five-year, $500 million (ceiling), single-award contract Harris software engineers will develop software to enable NGA analysts and customers to search and retrieve data from intelligence systems faster and more efficiently than ever before.
The software will process content held within the NGA, the National System for Geospatial-Intelligence, and other intelligence-community agencies. It will allow intelligence officials to provide more timely and accurate support to warfighters and the national security community.
Harris has partnered with the NGA for almost 20 years to provide automated geospatial data processing, content data management and geospatial systems design and development. Harris currently provides high-resolution geospatial data content and products under NGA’s Foundation GEOINT Content Management (FGCM) program.
Harris Corp. supports government and commercial customers in more than 100 countries and has approximately $6 billion in annual revenue. The company is organized into three business segments: Communication Systems, Space and Intelligence Systems, and Electronic Systems.
