UK enhances geospatial intelligence sharing

UK: Goodrich Corporation, a global supplier of systems and services to aerospace, defence and homeland security markets, has delivered technology to the UK Ministry of Defence to improve sharing of geospatial intelligence between UK and coalition forces.

According to the company’s press statement, under ‘Project Attacker,’ Goodrich’s Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) Systems business based in the UK is providing federated ISR data management systems to UK deployed forces. These systems provide the UK’s armed forces with a much improved capability to share ISR data across the theatre of operations.

“The aim of ‘Attacker’ is to allow UK forces to share the vast amount of information collected by their ISR sensor systems. The Goodrich Intelligence Reference Library and MERLIN Imagery Exploitation Systems enable rapid near real-time review and exploitation of ISR data to provide timely and actionable intelligence direct to commanders on the ground where and when it is required,” said Sam Macleod, managing director of Goodrich ISR Systems, Malvern.

Goodrich ISR systems are designed to be fully compliant with NATO Standards and are based on open systems architectures to allow ease of integration with a wide variety of existing and ISR and Command & Control (C2) systems.
