US army geospatial policy development


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Alion Science And Technology
: 23 January, 2013  (Application Story)
Alion has been contracted to work with the US army on a project to develop, support and test geospatial based systems for land warfare operations

To help build geospatial battlefield intelligence, Alion Science and Technology will provide the US Army with geospatial enterprise development, integration and evaluation under a $24 million award.

The Army’s Geospatial Enterprise (AGE) serves as the knowledge centre for analysis of geospatial information and imagery that represents physical topographies, environmental elements and geographically referenced activities such as geological information, terrain, roads, and the effects of the time of day or weather. Alion’s work includes generating policy and standards that will guide the use of geospatial data throughout the Army, developing geospatial data, supporting the testing of geospatially based systems and creating geospatial policy documents.

“Alion will help the Army to field geospatial enterprise-enabled systems and capabilities to improve efficiency and allow the sharing of geospatial data,” said Terri Spoonhour, Group Senior Vice President and Manager of the Distributed Simulation Group. “These capabilities include such mission-critical applications as increasing battlefield situational awareness for operational forces across the Department of Defense (DoD), improving training and achieving a common operating environment within the Army Geospatial Enterprise.”

The work was awarded under the Defense Technical Information Center’s (DTIC’s) Weapon Systems Technology Information Analysis Center (WSTIAC) contract with the period of performance through until January 3rd, 2016.
