Raytheon Demonstrates New DCGS Web-Portal Capabilities to Improve Intelligence Sharing Across Military Services

GARLAND, Texas, April 18, 2007 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company recently demonstrated new key Web-portal capabilities, much like the Internet, that will improve intelligence sharing across the military services and intelligence agencies and facilitate closer collaboration.

After the 9/11 Commission stressed that the military services need to collaborate more closely through improved technologies, Raytheon demonstrated to program officials in various scenarios an industry-first hybrid version of its Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) Block 10.2. In the demonstration, Raytheon showed how appropriate personnel could easily access and view real- world operational mission data.

"The hybrid demonstration depicts how the DCGS can greatly improve intelligence sharing in the network-centric environment," said Anthony DiFurio, director for the Tactical Intelligence System business of Raytheon's Intelligence and Information Systems. "The 10.2 system and its tools will enhance the user's ability to access and exploit vast amounts of intelligence data through the DCGS metadata catalog."

The Raytheon team additionally executed a search of the intelligence data from the experimental Distributed Common Ground System (DGS-X) metadata catalog. Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar System data were picked from the search query and then displayed. The DGS-X system was the first DCGS Block 10.2 system to be accepted by the Air Force in August 2006.

When fully fielded, DCGS Block 10.2 will be a worldwide distributed, network-centric enterprise architecture that enables sharing, discovery and collaborative intelligence operations and production. Its environment provides for both the physical and electronic distribution of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data, processes, and systems. Raytheon was the first defense contractor to implement and deliver a service-oriented architecture to modernize the Air Force's ISR systems.

Based in Garland, Texas, Raytheon IIS is a leading provider of information and intelligence solutions to the government. Raytheon IIS has annual revenues of approximately $2.6 billion and employs more than 8,000 engineering and technical professionals worldwide. Raytheon IIS recently achieved a strategic milestone in earning CMMI Level 3 accreditation across its enterprise.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
