NCI, a provider of information technology services, has been awarded two technology demonstration task orders from the US Strategic Command to develop cutting-edge search and geospatial visualization capability for key federal customers.
The competitive task orders were awarded to NCI, together with Google and Next Tier Concepts under the Netcents contract. Geospatial visualization is the process of viewing geospatially tagged information on maps or satellite imagery. The NCI team will link web applications and web-based portals with information from external databases and other enterprise data sources. These applications will use Google Earth and Google Enterprise Search to create an integrated, geospatial view of critical customer information.
Karl Leatham, chief technology officer of NCI, said: This is an important transformational leap for our entire customer base. The combination of enterprise data search and geospatial display dramatically amplifies the power of critical real-time information visualization. NCI is honored to share a leadership role in this emerging market. We are also very pleased with the outstanding relationship that we have developed with Google and Next Tier Concepts and we look forward to a strong relationship as we continue to bring cutting-edge solutions to our federal customers.
