Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS-A)

The Distributed Common Ground System – Army (DCGS-A) is the Army’s deployable suite of intelligence systems. Reinventing Geospatial has experience leading Project Manager (PM) DCGS-A’s and the Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate’s (I2WD’s) efforts to simplify the Army’s geospatial architecture by designing, constructing, and deploying open source and commercial geospatial solutions.

We worked to optimize DCGS-A’s network communications and geospatial implementation by drawing on our extensive experience with architecture, engineering, development, and deployment of geospatial services, allowing the program to meet the previously unmet and latest geospatial requirements. We also demonstrated the ability to effectively disseminate the Standard and Shareable Geospatial Foundation (SSGF) and Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) to Forward Operating Bases (FOBs).

Our team focused on supporting the development of and implementation of technologies such as Open Geospatial Consortium’s (OGC’s) OpenGIS® web service interfaces, such as Web Map Service (WMS), Web Feature Service (WFS), and GeoPackage, to support geospatial data and information interoperability between computing environments (CEs) and Army Programs of Record (PORs).

In addition, RGi developed a prototype utilizing Portal for ArcGIS, supporting the Soldier’s ability to generate, collaborate, disseminate, and discover fused intelligence products. We also performed extensive research and development, ensuring the scalability of ArcGIS and Boundless-based geospatial infrastructure deployed at multiple echelons.
