NGA Hosts GEOINT Research Grant Competition

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency has announced it is hosting a research competition under the NGA Academic Research Program.

The agency said Friday it will provide academic grants each valued at $200,000 yearly for eligible geospatial intelligence researchers in nonprofit organizations, higher education institutions, university research centers and hospitals.

The NARP effort seeks to support progressive research projects on technologies that may contribute to NGA’s GEOINT mission.

“NARP is one leg of NGA’s connection to academia,” said Ken Feichtl, NARP program manager.

“It links our research mission to innovative thoughts that may one day transition into real world intelligence issue solutions,” he added.

Interested applicants may submit their white papers to the agency for evaluation and research classification leading to the program’s next awarding in July 2018.

NARP awards grants continuously on a triannual basis.
