Warfighter Gain Access to Strategic Intelligence via Tactical Networks A team developing the led Distributed Common Ground System – Army (DCGS-A) has developed and demonstrated technology for users of the U.S. Army’s battlefield networks that allows access to actionable intelligence from virtually anywhere in the field.

Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC) and teammates General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), and Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAI) were chartered by the U.S. Army to integrate multiple, existing intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) systems into the DCGS-A ‘portal’ like system. Further developing the operating model, the team demonstrated and tested a new query based model enabling users to access the vast information resources available with DCGS-A, including the Army’s Joint STARS Common Ground System, the Joint STARS Work Station, the Human Domain Work Station, the Digital Terrain Support System, the Integrated Meteorological System, the V3 Joint Intelligence Operations Capability – Iraq (JIOC-I) work suites and selected components of the Navy’s DCGS Multi-Intelligence Segment integrated with the DCGS Integration Backbone (DIB).
