NGA posts RFI for Geodesy and Geophysics Training
On July 24, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency posted a request for information on Geodesy and Geophysics Training for Weapons Systems Applications (Solicitation Number: HM1575-18-R-0017). Responses are due by August 3.
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) provides timely, relevant, and accurate geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) in support of national security to the National System for Geospatial-Intelligence (NSG). The NSG is the combination of technology, policies, capabilities, doctrine, activities, people, data, and communities necessary to produce GEOINT in an integrated multi-intelligence, multi-domain environment. A key agency priority is to determine, with certain reliability, where persistent cultural, physical and physiographic changes have occurred on the earth’s surface. The detection of these persistent changes shall support the maintenance of foundation data warehouses that are ready and current to support NSG’s mission requirements.
NGA is pursuing applications, services and technological ideas to satisfy this revolution in geospatial foundation data production and maintenance. To support the NSG in an ever changing world, NGA must employ new technologies, new applications and source retrieving services. NGA is developing unique approaches to achieve geospatial foundation data readiness via the exploitation of new technologies, infrastructure and the use of commercial/civilian imagery. Through this announcement, NGA is seeking to provide training in capabilities for quantifying the effects of errors in models of the Earth’s gravity field on ballistic missile trajectories.
