Lockheed Martin Corp. will provide a wide array of education and training services to the National-Geospatial Intelligence Agency under a contract worth $18.3 million, the Defense Department said Monday.
Under the terms of the agreement, the company will provide the agency's employees with technical skills training, systems training and leadership development, and professional education in the intelligence field.
The company will deliver the services at Fort Belvoir, Va., DOD said. The department expects the project will be completed by May 2011.
NGA is a combat support component of DOD that assists the secretary of defense, CIA director and other national policymakers in the areas of imagery, imagery intelligence and geospatial information.
Lockheed Martin, of Bethesda, Md., ranks No. 1
on Washington Technology's 2008 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government prime contractors.
