Joint Geospatial Analytic Support Services II RFP now live
On August 28, the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) issued the request for proposals (RFP) for the Joint Geospatial Analytic Support Services II requirement. Proposals are due by 11:00 a.m. Eastern on October 5.
USSOCOM has a validated requirement to provide Geospatial Intelligence and Imagery Intelligence Analysts in support of on-going and future operations in multiple world-wide locations. The purpose of this support is to contribute to the actionable intelligence capability through the use of personnel within the functional spectrum of Imagery Intelligence (IMINT) and Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT). The JGASS II contract will provide the most proficient and capable Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) Analysts who are experienced with Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination (PED) of traditional and non-traditional intelligence data utilizing a variety of advanced geospatial techniques leveraging multiple data sets within the GEOSPATIAL Intelligence Architecture.
The requirement exists for an intelligence support program to provide comprehensive, actionable intelligence services to USSOCOM element and subordinate commands. Actionable Intelligence is defined as the collection, interpretation, and immediate use of intelligence information gathered from multiple sources to include contract personnel assets embedded and working in direct support with elite SOF units and supporting elements in order to carry out combat and other mission requirements. Actionable Intelligence is real time and requires the rapid synthesis of vast amounts of intelligence data including data from multiple sources including human intelligence (HUMINT), signals intelligence (SIGINT), Imagery Intelligence (IMINT) and Geo-spatial Intelligence (GEOINT) and others.
This specific component of the Actionable Intelligence Program is a multifaceted capability consisting of Full Motion Video Analysts, Imagery Analysts, Imagery Systems Specialist, Geospatial Intelligence Analyst, and associated specialty skills sets that contribute to the geospatial imagery intelligence collection, analysis and exploitation. Personnel supporting this effort will be integrated, based on skill sets, into intelligence operations. Support is provided at both permanent facilities and mobile locations in order to accomplish USSOCOM priorities and tasks in accordance with guidance, policies, and mandates of the Department of Defense, U.S. laws, International law, and International agreements.
The JGASS contract will provide the most proficient and capable Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) Analysts who are experienced with Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination (PED) of traditional and non-traditional intelligence data utilizing a variety of advanced geospatial techniques leveraging multiple data sets within the GEOSPATIAL Intelligence Architecture.
