Three multi-award IDIQ contracts with ceilings totaling US$1.5 billion have been awarded Harris Corporation to provide the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) with geospatial data services for up to 10 years.
“Winning JANUS continues our long-standing legacy of providing high-quality, responsive GEOINT and analytics to the intelligence and military communities,” said Bill Gattle, president, Harris Space and Intelligence Systems. “Our analytics technology provides NGA with fit-for-purpose data, reduced production costs and cloud-based access to geospatial products and content.”
Harris will create, manage and disseminate high-quality geospatial-intelligence (GEOINT) information under contracts that cover all three areas of NGA’s JANUS program – geography, imagery and elevation.
Predictive analytics technology will be used by Harris to continuously evaluate the health of NGA databases and to guide the acquisition, creation and integration of all forms of geospatial data. Harris’ cloud-based tools will validate and correct the data – pinpointing locations that require updates.
