General Dynamics delivers TAC-MAAS to USSOCOM

7th May 2014 - 13:46 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems has announced that it has delivered nine TAC-MAAS processing, exploitation and dissemination (PED) systems to the US Special Operations Command (SOCOM). The systems will enhance soldiers’ ability to extract real-time actionable intelligence from full motion video (FMV).

The commercial off-the-shelf TAC-MAAS PED system is designed to process video gathered by intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) platforms. The ability to capture, analyse and search mission-critical FMV is critical for intelligence and situational awareness in the field.

The system can be installed, configured and maintained by operators in the field on ruggedised laptops. Capable of robustly handling the capture, cataloguing and sharing of FMV streams in demanding environments, TAC-MAAS also allows operators to mark up and disseminate derived images and video clips.

Mike Manzo, director of Geospatial Solutions, General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, said: ‘With its suite of essential tools for video enhancement, event-tagging and geospatial search, TAC-MAAS meets the unique mission requirements of the SOCOM.

‘TAC-MAAS' intuitive interface can also be mastered with minimal training and operational support helping to ensure there is little to no downtime when integrating this solution into existing workflows and CONOPS.’
