NGA Eyes Multiple Vendors for Data-Based Military Target Analysis

Jeff Brody

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency will inform companies next month about a contract bidding  opportunity to analyze changes on target military bases using data sources such as satellite imagery, airborne sensors and geolocation technology, Breaking Defense reported Friday.

David Gauthier, director of NGA’s commercial and business operations group, told Breaking Defense the agency will explore commercial capabilities for the upcoming analysis effort and let potential vendors select what source type to use.

He noted contract work will include baseline development and periodic status reporting services, and that the agency will host an event for interested parties in June or July.

Gauthier also indicated the potential of synthetic aperture radar systems to collect satellite data and support  analysis functions at NGA, according to the report.
