DHS does geospatial with Northrop

Homeland Security Department officials this week awarded a $10 million contract to Northrop Grumman Corp. for three wireless geospatial solutions.

The one-year contract, which has four one-year options, includes infrastructure and applications so users can link and analyze location and physical data from across the country.

Border and transportation security are the primary focus areas for the three projects. The first will be a situational awareness system at a high-visibility southeastern U.S. port that Northrop Grumman officials would not specify. The system will handle classified and unclassified data, and include analysis and information dissemination capabilities for the Transportation Security Administration.

The second project involves designing and developing Web-based and wireless capability for the DHS Geospatial Service Center being created to provide geospatial products and services throughout DHS. This will include day-to-day requests for mapping and analysis, and the ability to support physically distributed response during emergencies.

The third project is to assist the Enforcement Case Management System for the divisions of Customs and Border Protection, and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Northrop Grumman will provide a mapping interface, geospatial analysis tools and wireless capability for the system, which is already being developed for illegal border crossing cases.
