The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have officially accepted a new system supported by ManTech to improve the production of nautical charts. Nautical Chart System II (NCS II) is an enhanced version of the previously developed system.
“The NOAA’s Nautical Chart System II is an innovative and cost-effective, enterprise-based, database management solution, ” said George J. Pedersen, ManTech’s Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer. “The centralized nautical database will have the versatility to build different charts needed by the maritime community and the ability to exchange data seamlessly with the national geospatial database infrastructure and other government agencies.”
In February 2009, ManTech led an effort along with NOAA and Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc. (ESRI) and reached a milestone by accepting the integrated solution based on ESRI’s ArcGIS Nautical 9.3 software to produce multiple charts from a single database.
ManTech International Corporation provides innovative technologies and solutions for national security programs for the Intelligence Community, the departments of Defense, Homeland Security and Justice, NOAA, and the Space Community among other U.S. government customers. ManTech is headquartered in Fairfax, VA.
