Maxar Technologies has been contracted for $14.2 million to develop Red Wing, an automated, cloud-based geospatial intelligence analysis architecture for the Air Force Research Laboratory.
Red Wing will facilitate analysis of challenging intelligence issues by automating time-consuming tasks. It will also leverage advanced exploitation and visualization services and edge node processing to further produce insights from raw information. The architecture will be able to integrate with legacy systems.
Red Wing also expands the use of Amazon managed services through careful assessment of emerging offerings designed to improve resiliency, reduce cost, and reduce exposure to cyber threats.
“Maxar’s broad portfolio of imagery and analytics products simplifies and speeds access to critical information, empowering customers to be more predictive in their decisions and more productive in their daily operations,” said Tony Frazier, Maxar executive vice president of global field operations. “Red Wing will help to rapidly equip the warfighter with actionable insights to solve dynamic and complex intelligence problems at scale.”
