The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is developing a “map of the world,” comprising geographic-based intelligence and information from many intelligence sources.
NGA wants to leverage navigation data sets, geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) and imagery to deliver a “common frame of reference throughout the IC” as part of the agency’s 2018 Future State Vision.
“They’re trying to get out of a lot of the stovepipes and disjointed databases and get things all together in one common place,” said Craig Brower, NGA account manager at BAE’s intelligence and security segment.
BAE Systems won a $335 million contract in July 2014 to help NGA collect, organize and utilize the data sets for the map of the world.
“[As] of August  we’ve achieved our first major milestone of getting 12 disparate content views alive, put out there, active and being served out,” said Mike Weingord, NGA’s content management office director.
