NGA posts emerging scientist RFI
On July 1, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) posted a request for information (RFI) for emerging scientist training. Responses are due by 5:00 p.m. Eastern on July 12.
NGA in support of the Office of Geomatics is seeking information on how an interested contractor could support a critical need for providing students with advanced professional training including Creditearning in University upper level coursework that covers 3 major Geomatics disciplines (Geodesy, Photogrammetry, and Satellite Geodesy).
The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to gain information on current Industry capabilities that would meet NGA’s requirements of advanced professional training.
NGA has a mission-critical need for providing students with advanced professional training including Credit-earning in University upper level coursework that covers 3 major Geomatics disciplines (Geodesy, Photogrammetry, and Satellite Geodesy). There would be a requirement for Graduate degrees and/or Recognized Certificates with the availability of academic advisors. Enrollment will be provided for up to 10 analysts per term, and will be selected from the following academic disciplines:
- Civil Engineering – including, but not limited to: Fundamentals of Global Positioning System (GPS) design and operation, GPS observables, error analysis, Analytical and Digital Photogrammetry, analytical camera calibration, GPS controlled aerotriangulation, Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) and orthophotography.
- Geodetic Science – including, but not limited to: Geodetic and astronomic coordinates, ellipsoidal geometry, geodetic datums, terrestrial and celestial reference systems, polar motion, crustal motion geodesy, reference frame realization and station trajectory analysis, plate motion, earthquake deformation cycle, numerical methods, the gravity field, applications of artificial satellites in geodesy, station positions and the gravity field of the earth.
- Geography – including, but not limited to: Principles in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), theory and algorithms of GIS, custom GIS applications, fundamental principles and methods, and geographic applications of remote sensing.
