Apr 13, 2010 (04:04 PM EDT)
EXTON, Pa., April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC) is enhancing its abilities to evaluate the ever-growing threat of counterspace operations by entering into a new software licensing agreement with Analytical Graphics, Inc. (AGI). Under this contract, more than 40 NASIC Counterspace Squadron analysts will have access to AGI's commercial off-the-shelf space situational awareness and space protection software to perform their critical intelligence duties.
NASIC, located at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, is the source of air and space intelligence for the Department of Defense (DoD). Since 1993, it has used AGI software in its mission of producing integrated, predictive air, space and specialized intelligence to enable military operations, force modernization and policymaking. The new contract puts AGI's STK/Professional, STK/Terrain, Imagery & Maps and STK/Communications products into the hands of the entire NASIC Counterspace Squadron. This move will increase the squadron's response time in analyzing complex ground-, air- and space-based counterspace threats and ultimately enhance crucial support to the intelligence community and warfighters.
"We have had a long relationship with NASIC and are excited that one of the leading counterspace analysis groups in the world will use our software as its primary analysis tool," says Paul Graziani, AGI CEO.
