Harris to Develop Software, Train NGA Employees

The company announced its “Training with Industry” program at GEOINT 2017


Harris Corporation announced at GEOINT 2017 a ”Training with Industry” program that will provide National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) employees with skills and training not available through military or civil education—such as industry (including Harris-specific) workflows, commercial processes, and more. Participants will spend one year training at the Harris Geospatial Innovation Center, then will tackle an applied learning assignment based on the specific training they received.

The news comes on the heels of NGA awarding Harris a five-year, $500 million IDIQ contract to develop more efficient data search and retrieval software for agency analysts. The software will process internal NGA content as well as data from other intelligence agencies, allowing for more timely and complete combat and national security support.

Both announcements advance a nearly 20-year collaborative geospatial technology partnership between Harris and NGA.
