Jeff Brody

Octo Consulting Group has received a two and a half year contract with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) to provide geospatial product development under the GEOINT Services, Data Services, Core Delivery Teams (CDT) contract, Octo announced on Tuesday.

“Octo is passionate about supporting the NGA GEOINT Services initiative,” said Jim Vant, executive vice president of Defense and Intelligence for Octo. “Since 2011, Octo has helped NGA disseminate our nation’s GEOINT data to warfighters, analysts, relief workers and others who depend on this information. We look forward to supporting NGA and advancing its mission through the CDT contract,” Vant added.

The contract supports the NGA GEOINT Services effort to build open-source geospatial capabilities for the broader National System for Geospatial Intelligence (NSG) community supporting military operations, intelligence analysis, disaster response, and commercial navigation.

Octo’s contract will support modern Agile product development of three geospatial capabilities – an open source suite of geospatial big data tools, a geospatial data packaging tool, and a vector tile streaming solution.

The company will work jointly with the government to design, develop and deploy customer-driven geospatial capabilities. Octo will use its experience with Pivotal, user experience design, and modern software development to deliver value faster to NGA’s critical customers.
