NGA to host industry workshop for Foundation Feature Data Automation
On November 22, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency posted an invitation to its Foundation Feature Data Automation Workshop (Solicitation Number: FFDA-RFI-01).
NGA Research is currently conducting market research to identify mature capabilities and research efforts into foundation feature data automation. We would like to cordially invite you to the government-sponsored Foundation Feature Data Automation Workshop on January 30-February 1, 2018 at the Institute for Defense Analyses. This workshop will have seven sessions covering automated feature extraction, attribution, conflation, geopositioning, change detection, data curation, and architecture. Each session will start with a government presentation followed by short presentations from industry and academia in these areas.
If you are interested in attending, respond with your plans to attend by January 16, 2018. Please include the day(s) you are planning to attend and your interest in a 20 minute one-on-one meeting with the government. Please note that space is limited and respondents will be allowed attendance on a first come, first served basis with no more than two attendees per organization per day.
Participation in this workshop is issued solely for information and planning purposes – it does not constitute a Request for Proposal (RFP) or a promise to issue an RFP in the future. Participation in this workshop does not commit the Government to contract for any supply or service whatsoever. Further, NGA is not at this time seeking proposals and will not accept unsolicited proposals. Responders are advised that the U.S. Government will not pay for any information or administrative costs incurred in response to this workshop. All costs associated with responding and attending this workshop will be solely at the interested party’s expense. Not responding to this workshop does not preclude participation in any future RFP, if any is issued.
Thank you for considering this opportunity to share your ideas and/or capabilities with government, academia, and other industry for potential future collaboration.
