Automated ISR intelligence sharing goal of Hexagon, General Atomics partnershipNews
April 19, 2021
CHANTILLY, Va. Hexagon US Federal has been selected to partner with General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA-ASI) to provide geospatial solutions from Hexagon's Luciad Portfolio in support of cutting-edge intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) projects.
In this partnership, Hexagon US Federal offers capabilities from the Luciad Portfolio to enhance two GA-ASI projects: Metis, for autonomous tasking, collection management and intelligence sharing; and the Multi-Mission Controller (MMC), an operator-based multi-platform control system.
According to officials, this includes using LuciadRIA for the browser-based Metis solution, LuciadLightspeed for the MMC desktop solution, and LuciadFusion as the common geospatial server for both Metis and MMC.
GA-ASI's Metis project is intended to provide a capability that can streamline and automate the ISR task management process while allowing for rapid, cloud-based intelligence sharing. MMC is intended to enable a single user to control multiple aircraft and their missions simultaneously by leveraging a combination of automation and UX-based design.
