ARLINGTON, Va. -- June 10, 2013

The Geospatial Management Office within the Department of Homeland Security
(DHS) has selected BAE Systems to provide geospatial imagery and analysis for
real-time intelligence products. This award identifies BAE Systems as one of
four prime contractors on DHS’s Remote Sensing Services to Support Incident
Management and Homeland Security Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity
(IDIQ) contract. The ceiling value of all task orders to be released under the
five-year IDIQ is $50 million.

BAE Systems’ intelligence experts will acquire, process and disseminate
geospatial data and airborne imagery to produce high-resolution maps that
reflect current environmental conditions. The data will be used to produce
real-time intelligence products to support a variety of DHS missions, to
include emergency management of natural and manmade disasters, and possibly
security planning for special events. The geospatial intelligence products may
also be used to assist public safety and law enforcement with tactical
planning and incident response.

“Our imagery and analysis will provide a new level of situational awareness
for first responders, helping them to manage emergencies and safely complete
their missions,” said DeEtte Gray, president of BAE Systems’ Intelligence &
Security sector.

BAE Systems is strategically aligned with highly-qualified geospatial firms,
universities and government agencies to develop geospatial intelligence
products and solutions as part of its Geospatial Operation for a Secure
Homeland – Awareness, Workflow, Knowledge (GOSHAWK^TM) program. GOSHAWK
develops hybrid teams of data providers, systems integrators and IT
professionals capable of rapidly transforming geospatial data into actionable
intelligence.

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
