Lockheed Martin to upgrade Air Force intell workstations

Upgrades will accommodate Unix and Windows-based software apps

Lockheed Martin Corp. will upgrade workstations for the Air Force’s Distributed Common Ground System under a $4.4 million task order.

Under the contract, Lockheed Martin will upgrade 200 DCGS Common Work Stations so that analysts can use both Unix and Windows-based software applications simultaneously from a single work station, company officials said today. The upgrade will allow data to be transferred easily between two completely different operating systems.

In addition, the company also will continue to support the Air Force in fielding and integrating high-definition, full-motion video capabilities into DCGS sites located around the globe. The latest, high-definition workstations are equipped with a four-panel array of color LCD monitors that enable analysts to simultaneously view and act on multiple, full-motion video feeds.

DCGS collects and processes vast amounts of intelligence and imagery from manned and unmanned reconnaissance sources.

Lockheed Martin, of Bethesda, Md., ranks No. 1 on Washington Technology's 2010 Top 100 list.
