Boeing Autometric will direct a team of more than 30 subcontractors with expertise in professional analysis, photogrammetric production, mapping, charting, and program and production management services.

Boeing is a key player in a new National Imagery and Mapping Agency, or NIMA, contract that will speed up the delivery and analysis of critical, time-sensitive intelligence imagery.

Boeing Autometric, a unit of Boeing Integrated Defense Systems, will support the Global Geospatial Intelligence, or GGI, contract, which has a potential value of $750 million, if all options are exercised over the 10-year period. Boeing Autometric is among six prime contractors leading the effort and will direct a team of more than 30 subcontractors with expertise in professional analysis, photogrammetric production, mapping, charting, and program and production management services.

"Accuracy and efficiency is critical, particularly when you are dealing with information that relates to national security," said Tony Moraco, director of Boeing Autometric. "Boeing will assist NIMA with services proven over the past 11 years. Using Softplotter software by Boeing, and related technology, NIMA will receive the most accurate data at the lowest possible cost."

Softplotter provides a complete suite of software tools for fast and accurate map production. Utilizing more efficient computing processes and incorporating best-of-breed technology, users are able to increase efficiency and reduce costs.
