NGA provides additional context on Luno A RFP
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is soliciting proposals for Luno A, a $290 million indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract to acquire unclassified commercial GEOINT-derived computer vision and analytic service capabilities. This will be a five-year IDIQ with awards to multiple vendors, focused on monitoring global economic and environmental activity and military capabilities.
Luno A is a follow-on to the Economic Indicator Monitoring contract, which focused on managing the deluge of data by purchasing commercial data as services to integrate with NGA machine learning and artificial intelligence efforts. Luno A will expand access to data and services for the National System for Geospatial Intelligence, accelerate analytic workflow modernization objectives and integrate data and services into enterprise capabilities.
“Because of the incredible success with the EIM contract, we’ve substantially increased our financial commitment to commercial capabilities with Luno A,” said Devin Brande, director of NGA Commercial Operations. “As the quantity and quality of commercial data continues to increase, we must continue to partner effectively with industry to keep pace with state-of-the-art analytic capabilities and meet the increasing demands of our customers.”
Luno A will deliver data that enables NGA and NSG analysts to add context to analytic assessments, and have unparalleled insight into and data to quantify worldwide economic and environmental activity and military capabilities. The unclassified nature of commercial data will ensure that Luno A products, data, and/or services are easily shareable with key partners and allies across the globe.
Luno A will focus on identifying unclassified computer vision capabilities, to include object detection, object classification, object segmentation, pattern detection, broad area search and area monitoring and feature mapping across six areas of interest:
- General change detection, climate security and natural resources.
- Feature identification.
- Infrastructure and high cadence transportation network monitoring.
- Facility monitoring.
- Incidental and fortuitous processing.
- Emerging products, data and services.
