The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is seeking concepts to explore new technology in the areas of analytic workflow modernization, data access and integrity, accelerated tasking orchestration and assured positioning, navigation, timing and targeting.
NGA said Wednesday that its four mission imperatives fall under a newly published topic in the agency's Boosting Innovative GEOINT Research broad agency announcement (BIG-R BAA).
Interested parties can submit classified abstracts and proposals on the intelligence community's Acquisition Research Center website or provide unclassified input through the official online portals for federal contracting and grant opportunities.
The agency launched its BIG-R BAA effort last year in a push to transform research contracting approaches for disruptive technology projects.
"The BIG-R BAA helps us connect with researchers in industry and academia and apply their work to our national security mission," said John Main, chief scientist for research at NGA.
