RESTON, Va., April 9 (UPI) -- U.S. Strategic Command has extended a contract for NCI Inc. to continue development of its search and geospatial-visualization solutions.
Virginia-based NCI, working with team members Google Inc. and Next Tier Concepts, was awarded an extension to its task order developing geospatial-visualization capability, or maps and satellite imagery with tagged information.
Under the Air Force Network-Centric Solutions contract, NCI will work to "link and make searchable Web applications and Web-based portals with information from external databases and other enterprise data sources" for the Joint Information Operations Warfare Command, according to a news release.
"This is an important transformational leap for our entire customer base," Terry Glasgow, NCI president, said in the release.
"The combination of behind-the-firewall enterprise data search and geospatial display dramatically amplifies the power of critical real-time information analysis and visualization."
