Harris Atlas Systems Awarded $8 Million Contract by Middle Eastern Government to Supply Geospatial Data Sharing System

The advanced geospatial intelligence solution consists of enterprise and mobile versions of Harris Corporation’s Active Catalog(TM) system, which enables users to manage, share, and retrieve large volumes of geospatial data — information that identifies the geographic location and characteristics of natural or constructed objects — that reside throughout an enterprise. It also provides access to live data feeds, and can generate and publish documents and map products of urban environments.

Active Catalog integrates with a variety of Open Geospatial Consortium-compliant and standard geographic information systems software, such as ESRI and Bentley, which many customers are already using for military, intelligence and public safety operations. With sophisticated techniques to extract metadata, it supports a wide range of data formats, including overhead and aerial imagery, maps, intelligence reports, sensor data and other derived products.

Data and metadata are shared easily between enterprise and remote versions of the system via a secure, efficient and configurable sharing facility. Remote users can efficiently access enterprise-based geospatial intelligence data and also send field-collected information back to the enterprise.

“Active Catalog leverages 130 patents and more than 30 years of experience developing systems for the largest geospatial customers in the world,” said Leon Shivamber, managing director for Harris Atlas Systems. “The result is a solution that goes beyond traditional catalog capabilities to one that incorporates the widest variety of data sources, is easy to use, can be accessed in the most limiting environments – such as in a disaster or emergency – and delivers the highest level of security possible.

“When combined with our in-country support, this combination allows our customer to become geospatially-enabled and conduct their missions without worrying about the technology,” he added.

Harris Atlas Systems LLC is a joint venture between U.S.-based Harris Corporation and Atlas Telecom, a UAE-based technology leader. Harris Atlas Systems is at the forefront of delivering advanced capabilities for situational awareness, command and control, emergency management and other mission-critical solutions.
