In support of the National Air and Space Intelligence Center’s partnership with the Multi-Agency Persistence Integrated Program Office (IPO), Riverside Research provided robust systems engineering support to the Information Manager (IFM) System and Palette advanced processing tool suite, making critical Overhead Persistent Infrared (OPIR) capabilities available to the National System for Geospatial-Intelligence (NSG) as well as to International Partners. Our involvement in the requirements generation, architecture design, testing, and configuration management activities ensured that stakeholder needs were transformed into real-world capabilities. The ingenuity of our expert staff resulted in broad-based availability of persistence-derived information through the use of deployable tools, modular architecture design, and the application of flexible web-based technologies to expose the nation’s persistence data archive via flexible layers of information.
Riverside Research developed a comprehensive acquisition strategy that integrates national and tactical remote sensing data into advanced exploitation capabilities that are modularized and scalable to meet the persistence integration challenges of the future. Our subject matter experts successfully collaborated with multiple agencies to ensure Overhead Persistence GEOINT Architecture (OPGA) components were developed with NSG-wide applicability, maximizing the value of persistent data to the solution of our nation’s most challenging intelligence problems.
