SAN DIEGO, California — The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) awarded BAE Systems the iSToRE XP contract to provide advanced data management capabilities in support of National System for Geospatial-Intelligence (NSG) sites and users. The software solution is built on BAE Systems’ commercial product, GXP Xplorer, which enables analysts to easily access their local data and connect to remote geospatial data stores and libraries.
“Intelligence Analysts are challenged with managing increasing amounts and types of data to perform their mission,” said Jeff Allen, general manager of BAE Systems’ Geospatial eXploitation Products business. “GXP Xplorer reduces the analyst’s time spent locating and retrieving structured and unstructured data up to 75%, which provides more time to analyze and create actionable intelligence.”
GXP Xplorer searches through unlimited amounts of data to identify and catalog images, terrain, features, videos and documents on local networks or across an enterprise. The software operates on a variety of hardware platforms scaling from handheld devices and ruggedized laptops to enterprise servers and virtualized cloud environments.
Under the contract, BAE Systems will provide GXP Xplorer licenses for deployment during NGA’s transition from legacy Image Product Libraries to commercial-based information storage capabilities. The contract includes options to operationally field several additional licenses to the NSG through 2016. The licenses would support worldwide operations, including Joint Task Force Headquarters, intelligence centers and forward-deployed warfighters.
