Raytheon Wins Pair of NGA Contracts

Dec. 4, 2018
Raytheon was awarded two NGA contracts for AI and data automation worth as much as $600 million.

Raytheon Co. has garnered two National Geospatial Agency (NGA) contracts to develop data automation, analytics, and artificial-intelligence (AI) capabilities. The two prime indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracts have a combined potential value of as much as $600 million. The Elevation Content and Precise Imagery programs, which will be led and handled by Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services (IIS), are part of the NGA’s Janus initiative to produce systems that provide NGA partners with access to NGA’s content services.

“Our advanced analytics, automation, and AI will keep NGA capabilities on the cutting edge,” says Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon IIS. “The solutions provided by NGA to the broader user community will offer higher quality and faster delivery of mission critical information.”

Raytheon will apply more than 30 years of advanced photogrammetric algorithm development experience as part of automating the NGA’s data production capabilities and streamlining the NGA’s production processes and workflows in aligning with the NGA’s Automation, Augmentation, and Artificial Intelligence (AAA) strategy. Jane Chappel, vice president of Global Intelligence Solutions at Raytheon IIS, notes, “The Janus program is just the latest example of NGA's forward-leaning approach to technology, and we're ready to support them as a key partner in this new initiative.”
