CAE USA has been awarded a $37 million contract by the Army Contracting Command-Orlando to lead the Beyond 3D prototype development and integration efforts for the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA).
The Beyond 3D project, led by the Training and Readiness Accelerator (TReX), aims to accelerate NGA’s ability to process, exploit, disseminate and generate 3D geospatial data to support real-time analysis, mission planning and tactical operations. TReX is a unique public/private partnership between industry and the United States Department of Defense focused on how modeling, simulation and training can be used to increase Warfighter readiness.
The total value of the NGA Beyond 3D prototype project, if all options are exercised, is more than $37 million, the company said in a statement.
The Beyond 3D prototype project for NGA will leverage the United States Special Operations Command’s (USSOCOM) Automating the Rapid Generation of 3D Geospatial Data (RAPID 3D) prototype and advance the development for broader NGA-specific uses across the Department of Defense and U.S. intelligence agencies. Ultimately, the goal of the Beyond 3D system is to improve NGA’s ability to deliver geo-specific, real-world 3D content in real-time to end-user’s needing the content for analysis, planning and decision-support.
