NGA posts Motion GEOINT RFI
On January 8, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency posted a request for information for Motion GEOINT Services. Responses are due by 5:00 p.m. Eastern on January 29.
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) in support of the Motion GEOINT Services (MGS) Program Office is seeking information on how an interested contractor could enable the automated processing of large-scale data to capture and represent surface-level motion indicators that alone, or when combined with other data sources, provide strategic and tactical operations warning for national security.
The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to gain information on industry interest, feasibility, and capability to meet the development, sustainment, engineering, and project management needs of the NGA Motion GEOINT Services (MGS) program.
NGA has a mission-critical need by 2023 to bring the five GEOINT data types covered under the Motion GEOINT Services program – Full Motion Video (FMV), Moving Target Indicator (MTI) data, Wide Area Motion Imagery (WAMI), hyperspectral imagery (HSI), and Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) into the National System for Geospatial Intelligence (NSG) to:
- enable automating 75% of current GEOINT analyst activities performed manually by analysts who work with these data types,
- assist analysts with providing high confidence, near-term anticipatory analysis that support predictions of future situations,
- provide data brokering capability for the five data types to the NSG, Intelligence Community (IC) and the Department of Defense (DoD).
NGA seeks responses from experts, product providers and service providers that can help in providing ideas and solutions that contribute to meeting the objectives. NGA does not expect responses on every data type and certainly not only from potential prime contractors who would seek to serve as an enterprise integrator. Responders should respond within their areas of expertise. NGA envisions using responder’s technologies, products and services in concert with services provided within the larger National System for GEOINT (NSG) enterprise.
