The team's objective in the NGA program is to demonstrate a technology solution that can be used to efficiently search and manage national and commercial digital imagery collected from wide geographic areas.

Boeing, a major developer of integrated intelligence solutions, leads an industry team that has moved forward to the final systems development phase of the Softcopy Search program managed by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA).

The Softcopy Search program objective is to demonstrate a technology solution that can be used to efficiently search and manage national and commercial digital imagery collected from wide geographic areas. Using digital, computer-based softcopy image search tools, NGA and other government intelligence agencies will be able to more easily manage, use and deliver digital imagery in support of national security.

The team completed the second development phase called Spiral 2 in February 2004 and now advances to the final stage, Spiral 3, which continues through June 2004. In the Spiral 3 development, the Boeing team is demonstrating an integrated solution that combines proven data management software products with off-the-shelf integration and imagery analysis tools.

The Boeing team is comprised of Boeing Space and Intelligence Systems, Springfield, Va.; Sensor Systems Inc., Sterling, Va.; and PAR Government Systems Corp., Rome, N.Y.
