NGA Awards 10 Contracts to Support Foundation Data for Geospatial Intelligence

SPRINGFIELD, Va., Oct. 10, 2014—The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency awarded ten contracts to eight companies this year to provide support to the agency’s foundation geospatial intelligence.

Foundation data makes up the foundational layer for NGA operations to successfully meet the challenges of today’s requirements and crises, as well as the day-to-day operations of tomorrow.

Together, each contract comprises the GEOINT Data Services, or GDS, program. These acquisitions support NGA’s foundation geospatial intelligence mission and provide data used in NGA’s Map of the World, a service that provides shared and trusted GEOINT and multi-source content to the intelligence community and DOD to meet their mission needs. Map of the World is an environment for GEOINT analysis and exploitation, providing access to foundation data, mission data and visualizations. Companies were competitively selected for their innovative solutions to managing foundation geospatial intelligence content.

NGA awarded the following contracts and services:

  • Geographic Services, Inc., headquartered in McLean, Virginia, won the geographic names and boundaries contract on July 31, 2013, valued at approximately $25 million over five years. This contract provides GEOINT services such as data assessment and temporal and spatial data enabling, data collection and maintenance, emerging data sets and services, and crisis and surge support.
  • Boeing Co. of Chicago won the Flight Information Publications, or FLIP, aeronautical charts contract on Nov. 7, 2013, valued at approximately $31 million over four years. This contract provides content management and product finishing support to aeronautical safety of navigation charts used by pilots and navigators around the world.
  • Leidos of Reston, Virginia, won the FLIP Aeronautical Text contract on Dec. 17, 2013, valued at approximately $14 million over four years. This contract provides aeronautical data translations, text finished products, aeronautical source processing service, FLIP DVD, aeronautical application and data delivery for the aerospatial Web service in support of critical aeronautical safety of navigation mission requirements.
  • Harris Corporation, headquartered in Melbourne, Florida, won the foundation geospatial intelligence content management Region A contract on May 29, valued at approximately $334 million over five years. This contract provides content management for features, elevation and human geography requirements; product finishing for topographic, elevation, and controlled imagery requirements; classified and unclassified network connectivity; emerging products, data, and services; and crisis and surge support for United States Pacific Command and United States Northern Command mission requirements.
  • BAE Systems, based out of London, won the foundation geospatial intelligence content management Region B contract, awarded May 29, valued at approximately $295 million over five years. This contract provides content management for features, elevation and human geography requirements; product finishing for topographic, elevation and controlled imagery requirements; classified and unclassified network connectivity; emerging products, data, and services; and crisis and surge support for U.S. Central Command and U.S. European Command mission requirements.
  • Harris Corporation also won the foundation geospatial intelligence content management Region C contract on May 29, valued at approximately $313 million over five years. This contract provides content management for features, elevation, and human geography requirements; product finishing for topographic, elevation, and controlled imagery requirements; classified and unclassified network connectivity; emerging products, data, and services; and crisis and surge support for U.S. African Command and U.S. Southern Command mission requirements.
  • Leidos also won the global products and services contract on July 1, valued at approximately $39 million over three years. This contract provides global product finishing for navigation planning products; compressed ARC digitized raster graphic/ enhanced compressed raster graphic/geo-referenced portable document format finishing services; and emerging products and product dissemination services.
  • CACI of Arlington, Virginia, won the foundation geospatial intelligence maritime-Atlantic contract on Aug. 28, valued at approximately $32 million over four years. This contract provides maritime data content management for digital nautical charts (continual maintenance, data cleanup, vector data update, and new library collection and new source incorporation); sailing directions geo tag; maritime product finishing for standard nautical charts and littoral planning charts; classified and unclassified network connectivity; emerging products, data, and services; crisis and surge support for approximately half the globe for the maritime safety of navigation mission supporting mariners around the world.
  • Leidos won the foundation geospatial intelligence maritime-Pacific contract on Aug. 28, 2014, valued at approximately $32 million over four years. This contract provides maritime data content management for digital nautical charts (continual maintenance, data cleanup, vector data update, and new library collection and new source incorporation); sailing directions geo tag; maritime product finishing for standard nautical charts and littoral planning charts; classified and unclassified network connectivity; emerging products, data, and services; crisis and surge support for approximately half the globe for the maritime safety of navigation mission supporting mariners around the world.
  • Woolpert, Inc, headquartered in Dayton, Ohio, won the commercial airborne contract on Sept. 15, valued at approximately $32 million over three years.
