San Diego, US: The US Army procured BAE Systems’ commercial data management software, GXP Xplorer, to reduce the efforts required to rapidly search for and retrieve geospatial data from various legacy repositories. Under the contract, the US Army’s Distributed Common Ground System-Army (DCGS-A) Enabled Common Ground Station will deploy 50 GXP Xplorer enterprise server licenses starting in mid-2012.
Dan London, Vice President of sales, marketing, and customer support for the Geospatial eXploitation Products (GXP) business stated, “Intel analysts are challenged to find the data they need, when they need it. GXP Xplorer allows analysts to find and catalogue information, so they can perform their mission.”
Army brigade combat teams will use GXP Xplorer to identify and catalogue images, maps, terrain, features, videos and documents of interest on local desktops or across an enterprise. GXP Xplorer supports the US Army’s transition from legacy data library systems to an interoperable resource that scales from mobile devices, ruggedized laptops, enterprise servers and virtualised environments.
