General Dynamics Awarded Air Force Airborne Imagery Task Order
FAIRFAX, Va. -- General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems has been awarded a $4.7 million task order to provide airborne advanced geospatial intelligence (AGI) battlespace awareness support to the U.S. Air Force’s National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC). This task order was awarded through a five-year, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) Advanced Technical Exploitation Program (ATEP) contract awarded in 2009. General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems is a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD).
Under this task order, General Dynamics will directly support national priorities, including overseas operations and missile defense, by providing hyper-spectral and multi-spectral imagery production and analysis, data processing and analysis, analytic support, publishing and distribution, and training.
“Our team brings a proven track record of providing analysis of hyperspectral and multispectral imagery by subject matter experts with deep mission knowledge," said Lou Von Thaer, president, General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems. "The breadth of our team's experience in geospatial, advanced sensor and exploitation technologies uniquely positions us to deliver support to NASIC’s mission, a role we have played since 2001.”
NASIC serves as the national and U.S. Department of Defense executive agent for the processing, exploitation, analysis, integration and dissemination of measurement and signature intelligence (MASINT) data collected from radar, electro-optical and infrared technical sensors. It prepares signatures of threat targets, develops analytical tools for technical analysis and provides these techniques for the fusion of MASINT data in direct support of operational missions of the Department of Defense and mission partners throughout the Intelligence Community. General Dynamics has been serving NASIC as a prime contractor since 2001.
The majority of work will be performed in Dayton, Ohio.
