Air Force posts SOCET RFI
On December 2, the U.S. Air Force posted a request for information (RFI) for Unit Level Intelligence (ULI) Soft Copy Exploitation Tool (SOCET)® Geospatial eXploitation Product (GXP) integrated with Common Geopositioning Services (CGS). Responses are due by 12:00 a.m. Eastern on December 9.
AFLCMC/Det 12 Unit Level Intelligence (ULI) Program Management Office (PMO) requires Soft Copy Exploitation Tool (SOCET)® Geospatial eXploitation Product (GXP) integrated with Common Geopositioning Services (CGS) for the TAW Information Systems. The ULI TAW systems require SOCET GXP Bundle Upgrade Entitlement (UE) part number 4038- UE, This part number includes all of the SOCET GXP feature licenses required for Targeting Missions to include the CGS license.
The Government requirement for a NGA-approved precision geopositioning engine providing capabilities required for accurate geo-location, image exploitation, precise target mensuration, and targeting product generation. It accurately displays, annotates, and catalogs multiple imagery types from multiple sources allowing users to identify, analyze, and extract ground features quickly for rapid product creation.
The Government requires a product that is NGA certified and that the Air Force Precise Point Positioning Program (AFP4) certifies targeteers for Target Materials Production (TMP). TMP is required to database target information to the Modernized Integrated Database (MIDB) and currently must be done using 3D Stereo tied with National Technical Means (NTM) imagery. The product required must be able to ingest specific imagery types for Precise Point Mensuration (PPM) and target development which necessitates the need for a specific number of SOCET licenses under the 363rd Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance Wing (ISRW).
