NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 24, 2008 -- Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) will feature solutions to support national security and defense next week at the U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation's GEOINT 2008 Symposium.
The exposition will be held Oct. 27-30 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center, Nashville.
Northrop Grumman will highlight its recent acquisition of 3001 International, Inc., a provider of geospatial data production and analysis, including airborne imaging, surveying, mapping and geographic information systems for domestic and international government intelligence, defense and civilian customers.
"The addition of 3001 International helps Northrop Grumman further support the critical needs and priorities across homeland security, emergency response, installation management and counter-narcotics programs," said John Olesak, vice president of geospatial intelligence for Northrop Grumman's Information Technology sector.
Northrop Grumman's geospatial solutions for government, military and intelligence agencies will be demonstrated at booth 233. 3001 International, Inc. will exhibit at booth 370.
Demonstrations on display in Northrop Grumman's booth include:
* A route planning scenario integrates multiple Northrop Grumman geospatial architecture framework capabilities to address a range of customer requirements. The demonstration will include semantic search, data conflation and fusion, sensor Web enablement, and geoprocessing and visualization services. * Social Mining Analytic Collaboration (SMAC), developed by Northrop Grumman, is a new way to approach intelligence gathering. SMAC leverages Web 2.0 capabilities to provide a set of advanced analytic tools within a secure collaborative environment, helping analysts support their missions more effectively. SMAC is operated on Northrop Grumman's FivePicture Workstation, which simplifies the task of visualizing multiple data sets, while enhancing collaboration and improving the quality of analysis. * The Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) Enterprise Framework is a family of fixed and deployable ground processing systems for multi-source tactical intelligence. It is a common framework that forms the backbone for all Northrop Grumman DCGS products and spans multiple services and agencies. * Trinidad is a low-cost-, low-risk approach to provide high- resolution radar imaging to the U.S. military and government agencies through a partnership between Northrop Grumman and Israel Aerospace Industries. The highly agile system can provide tactically useful synthetic aperture radar imagery that significantly increases the nation's intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capability.
