These software systems and applications include the Integrated Exploitation Capability (IEC) system, the Structured Observation Management (SOM) applications, the Active Earthscape (AE) system, the Target Management System (TMS), the Commercial – Joint Mapping Tool Kit (CJMTK), DishTrak, Graphical Exploitation and Reporting Tool (GERT), Geospatial Observable Web Kit (GOWK), GEOINT Review of Imagery Products (GRIP), Spatio-Temporal Analytic Research Environment (STARE), and the Target Monitoring Assistant (TMA). The SAS Contract will provide Operations and Maintenance support for the Application Service Provider components of the operational NSG systems, applications, and data repositories.
In February 2017 NGA released Request for Information (RFI) Solicitation Number HM047617RXXXX, GALAXY RFI Release. The GALAXY initiative has been discontinued. This SAS requirement represents a subset of those systems that would have been included under the GALAXY initiative. For planning purposes only, please be aware NGA will be posting a separate, but similar Solicitation / RFP entitled Sustainment for Content Services (SCS) with an estimated release date in June/July 2018. The SCS requirement includes sustainment of seven (7) legacy software systems, applications, and databases NGA currently maintains which constitute the web-based GEOINT content capability for the NSG. These software systems and applications include: Automate Country Assessment System (ACA), AE, Collaborative MATT Production and Storage System (COMPASS), Aeronautical Content Exploitation System (ACES), Consolidated Surface Production Environment (CSPE), GeoNames, and the Navigation Safety System (NSS). Support for other systems planned under GALAXY will now be acquired via separate forthcoming acquisition actions.
