The National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA) last Wednesday awarded contracts to five competitors to compete for up to $500 million in task orders over the next seven years to provide geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) services that enhance mission operations.

The awards were made to BAE Systems, Booz Allen Hamilton [BAH], CACI International [CACI], Leidos [LDOS], and ManTech International [MANT]. The contracts, which are effective May 1, were made under the GEOINT Enterprise Operations Service and Solutions Program with Industry (GEO-SPI) A: Critical Mission Operations.

NGA said last Friday that “The overall objective of GEO-SPI is to provide access to industry capabilities that enhance GEOINT mission operations for NGA and enterprise partner needs for GEOINT support in 2022 and beyond. This contract focuses on the services that underpin the creation and delivery of GEOINT to support critical mission functions.”

NGA provides GEOINT to national policy makers, warfighters, federal agencies and others. Most of the raw data comes from satellites that are operated by government and commercial providers.
