Harris will create, manage and disseminate high-quality
geospatial-intelligence (GEOINT) information for use by the U.S.
intelligence community and military worldwide under contracts that cover
all three areas of NGA’s JANUS program – geography, imagery and
elevation. The JANUS program will contribute to and maintain
comprehensive, geospatially accurate databases of the world that can be
accessed quickly as intelligence, operational and crisis needs arise.

Harris will use its predictive analytics technology to continuously
evaluate the health of NGA databases and to guide the acquisition,
creation and integration of all forms of geospatial data. Harris’
cloud-based tools will validate and correct the data – pinpointing
locations that require updates.

“Winning JANUS continues our long-standing legacy of providing
high-quality, responsive GEOINT and analytics to the intelligence and
military communities,” said Bill Gattle, president, Harris Space and
Intelligence Systems. “Our analytics technology provides NGA with
fit-for-purpose data, reduced production costs and cloud-based access to
geospatial products and content.”

Harris is investing in new technologies that improve the speed and
accuracy of providing GEOINT products. The company has partnered with
the NGA for almost 20 years to provide automated geospatial data
processing, data management, and geospatial systems design and
development. Harris provides high resolution geospatial data content and
products under NGA’s Foundation GEOINT Content Management program, and
previously supported the Global Geospatial-Intelligence program.
