NGA, NRO to Explore Commercial GEOINT Offerings With New Tool

1 min read

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and National Reconnaissance Office will compare their near term geospatial intelligence needs with commercial offerings through a new leaderboard, Space News reported Tuesday.

NGA and NRO established Commercial GEOINT Activity last year to jointly explore GEOINT capabilities in the private sector.

CGA directors implemented the Leaderboard tool in June to collect information from industry providers of GEOINT products.

Space News quoted Kevin Ayers, director of NGA’s commercial GEOINT activity engagement division, as saying the Leaderboard will help CGA “rack and stack those companies so we can have a better sense of what is going to make the biggest difference for us.”

CGA seeks near-term capabilities such as satellite imagery and data that can be procured within 18 months.
