NGA Seeks Info on Satellite Constellation Data Collection
The U.S. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is seeking information on services capable of conducting coordinated collection planning across multiple commercial satellite constellations, and advanced analytics on large volumes of commercial satellite data for the purpose of delivering High-Cadence GEOINT (GEOINT collected at intra-hour rates) to consumers within minutes of collect. The NGA put out the call for information in a FedBizOpps (FBO) notice published June 5.
“This Request for Information (RFI) is issued for the purpose of determining interest, feasibility, and capability only and does not constitute a Request for Proposal or indication the Government will contract for any of the items and/or services contained in this notice,” the NGA said in the FBO notice.
The deadline to submit this information is Friday, June 21. NGA will use the information to produce High Cadence Cubes that collect data at high speeds. The agency said it is employing New Bridge Partners and Mitre to help review submitted responses for market research.
