Army’s Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS-A) brings sharable, interactive maps and imagery to remote warfighters and commanders with TerraGo’s GeoPDF software

Washington, D.C. — January 8, 2014TerraGo, a leading global provider of location intelligence solutions, announced today its selection by the Army’s Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS-A) program for software that provides geospatial intelligence to remote warfighters, anywhere – even without network connectivity.
TerraGo’s GeoPDF technology greatly expands the availability of georeferenced intelligence products to anyone in the U.S. Army, without the requirement for expensive or complex geospatial tools on their desktops, field-deployed laptops and mobile devices.  

The latest TerraGo GeoPDF software enables Army intelligence analysts and geospatial engineers to share intelligent 2D and 3D maps and imagery to improve situational awareness and help make informed decisions faster. TerraGo also integrates seamlessly with BAE’s SOCET GXP® environment to enable Army intelligence analysts to disseminate intelligence directly from DCGS-A workstations to warfighters and commanders, regardless of their location. 

“Our industry partnership with the Army, which began in 2007, continues to generate numerous innovations for geospatial integration and collaboration capabilities,” said Scott Lee, Director of DoD Programs.  “TerraGo’s support for the Army is at the heart of our mission − building advanced technologies that make it simple to share geospatial intelligence with anyone, anywhere, on any device.”

With a strategic group of partners, including leading systems integrators and software providers, and more than 1,000 global customers, including thought leaders in defense and intelligence, crisis response, transportation and natural resources, TerraGo solutions enable organizations to discover, integrate and deliver location intelligence to the edge of the enterprise and back.
