NGA awards $770mn geodata contract to Harris


Melbourne, October 27, 2014: Harris Corporation has been awarded a potential $770 million in indefinite delivery/requirements contracts for up to five years to provide geospatial data services for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.

Under the contracts, Harris will create data and products of the Pacific, North America, South America, and Africa regions, and by the US intelligence community and military for comprehensive geospatial maps of the world. For this, Harris will utilise its One Feature One Time database, which reportedly eliminates data redundancy and stores the most current representation of each geospatial feature.

"Our solution provides improved accuracy, reduced production costs and significantly faster turn-around of geospatial products and content," said Bill Gattle, vice president and general manager, National Programs, Harris Government Communications Systems. "This major win continues our legacy of providing high quality, responsive geospatial products to the intelligence and military communities."

Additional details of the contract were not disclosed.
