SAN DIEGO, June 2 -- BAE Systems will provide precision geopositioning software for Department of Defense (DoD) applications under the US Navy's Common Geopositioning Services Project (CGSP). The contract, awarded by the Naval Air Warfare Center, is valued at $4.6 million and includes options through 2008.
Under the contract, BAE Systems will develop common geopositioning services (CGS) software capable of calculating accurate, 3-D geographic coordinates. The modular system, the CGS Toolset, will provide validated, precise coordinates with rigorous error estimates in support of DoD applications such as the targeting of coordinate seeking weapons. BAE Systems' latest imagery exploitation product, SOCET GXP, will be used as the viewer software for the CGS Toolset, permitting standalone installation on UNIX or Windows-based workstations. SOCET GXP supports the geospatial analysis workflow from image analysis through rigorous photogrammetry.
BAE Systems said the Toolset with be able to be integrated with other DoD applications. The company will also provide user training, support testing and validation activities.
The company is a developer of sensor models and sensor-model technology for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. These products, along with other technologies and applications, have been integrated into the Precision Targeting Workstation, the Navy's targeting system for precision-guided munitions such as the Tomahawk cruise missile.
