Joint Forces Command awards Lockheed Martin $29 million contract for new video management system

On Monday, Lockheed Martin was awarded a $29 million contract by the U.S. Joint Forces Command for Valiant Angel, a new video management system that is designed to apply highly advanced broadcasting technologies to aid commanders in the collection, management, processing, exploitation, and dissemination of full-motion video.

The contract brings together Lockheed Martin, Harris Corp., and NetApp in an effort to design and integrate the new system, which will give commanders better visibility into real-time and archived video collected by manned and unmanned aircraft and ground-based sensors. Specifically, the Valiant Angel system will allow warfighters to collect and store incoming video in a secure database, categorize and manage videos by keyword, location or items of interest, as well as a number of other capabilities.

Lockheed Martin vice president for Spatial Solutions Dan Rice said, “Video is a powerful intelligence tool, but today there is so much being collected, it’s difficult for troops and analysts to sort through the mountains of available data in search of a specific clip they need to make a decision. With Valiant Angel, commanders will be able to quickly find the video they need, package it into an actionable intelligence report, and share it securely with the front-line troops who need it. Valiant Angel will help make video an even more decisive advantage for our forces in virtually any scenario.”
