MELBOURNE, Fla., July 23 (UPI) -- Harris Atlas Systems LLC is to supply a geospatial data sharing system to an unidentified Middle Eastern government.

The contract is worth $8 million.

Harris said it will provide enterprise and mobile versions of Harris Corp.'s Active Catalog system, which enables users to manage, share and retrieve large volumes of geospatial data and which also provides access to live data feeds, generates and publishes documents and map products.

Harris said its Active Catalog integrates with a variety of Open Geospatial Consortium-compliant and standard geographic information systems software and supports a wide range of data formats.

"Active Catalog leverages 130 patents and more than 30 years of experience developing systems for the largest geospatial customers in the world," said Leon Shivamber, managing director for Harris Atlas Systems.

"The result is a solution that goes beyond traditional catalog capabilities to one that incorporates the widest variety of data sources, is easy to use, can be accessed in the most limiting environments, such as in a disaster or emergency, and delivers the highest level of security possible.

"When combined with our in-country support, this combination allows our customer to become geospatially enabled and conduct their missions without worrying about the technology."

Harris Atlas Systems LLC is a joint venture between U.S. company Harris Corp. and Atlas Telecom, a technology company based in the United Arab Emirates.
