Under the contract, BAE Systems will integrate BAE Systems software GXP Xplorer to modernize the iSToRE. The commercial data management software application allows analysts to connect and query remote geospatial data stores and libraries, and to locate, retrieve, and share data across the enterprise.
As part of the deal, GXP Xplorer software licenses will be deployed to support the agency’s transition from legacy image product libraries to commercial-based information storage capabilities. The licenses will support intelligence operations by enhancing information sharing amongst Joint Task Force Headquarters, intelligence centers, and forward-deployed war fighters.
The contract includes options to operationally field additional licenses to the NSG through September 2022.
Rex Ballard, general manager of Geospatial eXploitation Products (GXP) at BAE Systems, said: “GXP Xplorer allows analysts to quickly search through millions of records and zero in on the right piece of data, enabling them to generate finished products that drive actionable intelligence.”
