BAE Systems Delivers Software to Forward-Deployed Warfighters to Expedite Data Searches

SAN DIEGO, California –March 15, 2012- The U.S. Army has procured BAE Systems’ commercial data management software, GXP Xplorer, to reduce the efforts required to rapidly search for and retrieve geospatial data from various legacy repositories. Under the terms of the contract, the U.S. Army’s Distributed Common Ground System-Army (DCGS-A) Enabled Common Ground Station will deploy 50 GXP Xplorer enterprise server licenses starting in mid-2012.

Soldiers across multiple Army installations can easily locate current and historical data collections saved on share drives, servers and in personal files, which is vital to military users who rotate in-and-out of operating units.

“Intel analysts are challenged to find the data they need, when they need it,” said Dan London, vice president of sales, marketing, and customer support for the Geospatial eXploitation Products (GXP) business. “GXP Xplorer allows analysts to find and catalog information, so they can perform their mission.”

Army brigade combat teams will use GXP Xplorer to identify and catalog images, maps, terrain, features, videos and documents of interest on local desktops or across an enterprise. GXP Xplorer supports the U.S. Army’s transition from legacy data library systems to an interoperable resource that scales from mobile devices, ruggedized laptops, enterprise servers and virtualized environments.

GXP Xplorer crawls different systems, repositories and local digital ‘shoeboxes,’ as well as unstructured content from social media networks, where it is stored without moving or duplicating it. The federated search capability scans multiple sources simultaneously to locate relevant data — no matter where it resides — saving up to 75 percent of the time previously required to find data using legacy systems. The software automatically pulls in new data and delivers it to a specified destination based on user-defined search criteria. Raw and processed data can be previewed prior to retrieval and opened directly into applications, such as BAE Systems’ SOCET GXP®, for analysis, mission planning and intelligence reporting.

The software is a valuable resource for analysts, policy makers or users in the field who have a large repository of data, maps and imagery to manage.
