Sierra Nevada Corp. has won a $7.9 million contract to update the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s maritime navigational geospatial products.

The contract also builds upon the foundation of the Notice to Mariners Feasibility Demonstration Model and its underlying enterprise engine, which Sierra Nevada Corp. will enhance and create for it a new demonstration model for safety of navigation, the Defense Department said in a release.
