On December 22, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency posted a request for information for the JANUS Maritime Safety Foundation Geoint Tactical Ocean Data program. White papers are due no later than 5:00 p.m. Eastern on January 19.
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), in support of the JANUS Maritime Safety Foundation Geoint Tactical Ocean Data program, is seeking information on how an interested contractor could provide all data, products and services necessary to meet the NGA Safety of Navigation mission as required under U.S. Code Title 10. Tactical Ocean Data (TOD) are data layers that are used in conjunction with the Digital Nautical Chart (DNC) and, in the future, Electronic Navigation Charts (ENC), for specific military operations. There are four separate layers (levels) of TOD data currently produced though not all on contract and, with the exception of one, all digital TOD levels have a corresponding hard-copy product.
The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to ascertain the interest from industry in providing the required service and request information to further develop and refine NGA’s requirement.
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is the Functional Manager for Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT). As such, NGA supports the National System for Geospatial Intelligence (NSG), which supports the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), Department of Homeland Security, Intelligence Community, Governmental decision makers, first responders, humanitarian assistance/disaster relief, and beyond.
