NGA seeks Commercial Non-Earth Imaging

On June 12, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) posted a request for information (RFI) for commercial non-Earth imaging (NEI). Responses are due by 5:00 p.m. Central on July 12.

NGA is the nation’s primary source of geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) for the Department of Defense and the U.S. Intelligence Community. GEOINT is the exploitation and analysis of imagery and geospatial information that describes, assesses, and visually depicts physical features and geographically-referenced activities on the earth. As a DOD Combat Support Agency and a member of the IC, NGA provides GEOINT products and services to partners, decision makers, warfighters, and first responders across the globe. The NGA is the lead federal agency for geospatial intelligence (GEOINT). NGA delivers world-class geospatial intelligence that provides a decisive advantage to policymakers, warfighters, intelligence professionals and first responders.

The purpose of this RFI is to conduct market research on current Industry capabilities and technologies that meet NGA’s requirements and to initiate a dialog with Industry to discuss technical ideas and approaches that shapes the overall technical approach to provide Commercial NEI and analytics on space vehicle operations.

The objective of this RFI is to identify unclassified Non-Earth Imaging capabilities to include but not limited to: image resolution, data format, data file transmission and, PED capabilities; analyze platform sensor suite capabilities, acquire imagery of non-vendor assets and uncooperative platforms; Additionally, vendors will ensure the quality of data transmitted and mission planning meets the requirements agreed to by the contractor and NGA. The imagery and data created during these operations will augment existing unclassified and classified capabilities and data sources, and integrate directly into analytic workflows for operational use.

Review the NGA commercial NEI RFI.
