Lockheed Martin
: 07 August, 2008  (New Product)
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) has awarded Lockheed Martin a $32 million option on a contract to provide specialized geospatial training to analysts and officials across the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community.
This award exercises the second of four option years on the Learning Management Services (LMS) contract, which provides both educational programs and administrative support for the NGA College.

'LMS provides key training in geospatial analysis, technology and techniques that are central to the mission of the NGA and its partners,' said Jim Kohlhaas, Lockheed Martin Vice President, Spatial Solutions. 'It helps keep NGA officials at the top of their game, delivering professional development and career-long learning. And it allows defense and intelligence representatives to learn more about the latest geospatial-intelligence capabilities, helping them to better employ geospatial tools in their everyday jobs.'

Under the contract, Lockheed Martin provides professional instructors to run classes, develops curricula for a variety of course offerings, and manages the administrative aspects of the College, including registration, enrollment and general support. Course topics include geospatial tradecraft, specialized technology applications, program and acquisition management, and general leadership and communication training.

The NGA College is based in the Washington, DC area, and in St. Louis, MO. Lockheed Martin was awarded the original LMS contract in June of 2006. That contract has a total potential value of $176 million over five years.

Lockheed Martin currently supports the NGA with a wide variety of systems and services, from front-line imagery collection and analysis applications to enterprise solutions for secure IT management and service-oriented architecture.
