SGI, U.S.Air Force Space Warfare Center Enter Development Agreement

R&D Agreement Will Further Space Warfare Center's Ability to Provide Support to Area Commanders (October 29, 2001)
SGI Federal, a wholly owned subsidiary of SGI headquartered in Silver Spring, MD, today announced that it has entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the Air Force Space Warfare Center for the development, testing and evaluation of selected command and control technologies, decision support systems and display technologies.

The goal of the CRADA is to create enhanced, integrated solutions that will improve space support to area commanders. The Air Force Space Warfare Center (SWC) is chartered with the research and development of technologies that will enhance the utilization of space assets to the warfighters.


Under the CRADA, SGI Federal and the SWC will develop and integrate into the SWC testbed the capability to acquire, download and ingest space data assets in real time for the purpose of providing commanders an integrated and enhanced common operating picture (COP). Additional modern command, control, communications, computer and information (C4I) technologies will be examined for possible integration into the enhanced COP.

SGI Federal and the SWC will cooperatively explore technologies that will enable commanders to make quicker decisions and enhance space support of area operations. Further research will examine the feasibility of integrating unmanned aerial vehicle-type video in real time and display that imagery in context with the enhanced COP.

"SGI Federal will benefit from this CRADA by exposing SGI technologies to an experimental operational environment and by gaining experience in operational requirements," said Anthony Robbins, president, SGI Federal. "Further benefit will be gained by applying that experience in the development of new technologies and solutions for use in military and other U.S. government operations."

SGI Federal was created in April 2000 to further strengthen SGI's commitment to U.S. federal government customers. The subsidiary is headquartered in Silver Spring, Md., with offices nationwide.
