SAN DIEGO -- May 21, 2013

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) awarded BAE Systems the
iSToRE XP contract to provide advanced data management capabilities in support
of National System for Geospatial-Intelligence (NSG) sites and users. The
software solution is built on BAE Systems’ commercial product, GXP Xplorer,
which enables analysts to easily access their local data and connect to remote
geospatial data stores and libraries.

“Intelligence Analysts are challenged with managing increasing amounts and
types of data to perform their mission,” said Jeff Allen, general manager of
Geospatial eXploitation Products at BAE Systems. “GXP Xplorer reduces the
analyst’s time spent locating and retrieving structured and unstructured data
up to 75%, which provides more time to analyze and create actionable
intelligence.”

GXP Xplorer searches through unlimited amounts of data to identify and catalog
images, terrain, features, videos and documents on local networks or across an
enterprise. The software operates on a variety of hardware platforms scaling
from handheld devices and ruggedized laptops to enterprise servers and
virtualized cloud environments.

Under the contract, BAE Systems will provide GXP Xplorer licenses for
deployment during NGA’s transition from legacy Image Product Libraries to
commercial-based information storage capabilities. The contract includes
options to operationally field several additional licenses to the NSG through
2016. The licenses would support worldwide operations, including Joint Task
Force Headquarters, intelligence centers and forward-deployed warfighters.

BAE Systems’ Intelligence & Security manages big data, informs big decisions,
and supports big missions. BAE Systems delivers a broad range of services
including IT, cyber operations and intelligence analysis to enable the U.S.
military and government to recognize, manage and defeat threats.  The company
takes pride in supporting critical national security missions that protect the
nation and those who serve.
