Potential suppliers are invited to attend an upcoming industry briefing session for a possible approach to market for the LAND1771 Tranche 2 Enhanced Geospatial Support System for the Land Force.

Industry Briefing Details:
Date: Wednesday 27 November 2019
Time: 9am - 1pm (Canberra Time)
Venue: Pavilion on Northbourne Hotel
242 Northbourne Ave
DICKSON  ACT  2602

LAND1771 Tranche 2 Geospatial Support System for the Land Force will provide the Australian Defence Force (ADF) with integrated fixed and deployable systems to collect, manage, analyse and disseminate geospatial information across the ADF. This includes land, aerial, littoral geospatial survey and multimedia collection systems, and advanced analysis, production and dissemination technologies that directly support Joint Force elements in the conduct of Planning, Battlespace management, Navigation and Targeting through the provision of timely, accurate and relevant terrain information and geospatial intelligence.

Prior registration is required for attendance to the briefing.

A brief description of the wide range of elements within the scope of the project are as follows:

Geospatial Data Collection:
Aerial Survey: Provide high resolution, broad spectrum imagery through scalable, platform-agnostic (manned / unmanned) aerial sensors that may incorporate advanced technologies such as Hyperspectral Imagery (HSI), Synthetic Aperture RADAR (SAR), Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), and Wide Area Motion Imagery (WAMI)

Land Survey: Survey sensors and software to provide high precision survey data for analysis. Reduce tactical vulnerability and increase the efficiency of engineer tasks by reducing the time required conducting surveys and examine options for remote survey systems such as unmanned system based survey.

Littoral and Riverine Survey: Provide littoral and riverine survey craft and upgraded sensors for rapid collection of environmental, hydrographic and bathymetric data. Provision of geospatial support infrastructure to amphibious platforms such as the Canberra-class Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD).

Reconnaissance: Provide the capability for geospatial enabled engineering reconnaissance data to be captured and stored to a repository for analysis to inform operational planning.

Analysis and Production:
Advanced Analytics: Tools to improve analysis of 'big data' from increasing range of Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance and Electronic Warfare platforms, potentially using Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning techniques. This includes:
• Automatic extraction of key terrain information from still and motion imagery to ingest into the geospatial database
• Reduced processing time, thus enabling more analysis
• Automatic analyst task cueing.

Deployable Geospatial Systems: To support operations, including Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief and Defence Assistance to the Civil Community. It will also provide direct access to open source data and enable direct use of unclassified data collectors (e.g. personal devices).

Dissemination:
Near-real-time Data Transmission:  Technologies that allow the transmission of large geospatial data files across bandwidth constrained Tactical Datalink Networks.

Advanced Briefing Systems:  Provide greater geospatial awareness to the operational commander and planners potentially employing augmented, virtual or mixed-reality technologies; this includes consideration of technologies to facilitate concurrent briefing across multiple dislocated headquarters.

Command and Control:
Geospatial Governance: Provide a dedicated capability to improve the integration of Army geospatial systems into Land Combat Systems. Investigate options to develop centralised Geospatial Centre within the ADF to support testing, evaluation, standards and governance. Exemplar is the US Army Geospatial Center.

Training and Operational Facilities:
Assessing opportunities to increase efficiency and geospatial domain alignment through consolidated training facilities such as a Joint Geospatial Training Facility.

Assessing opportunities for combined facilities for Army's Littoral Riverine Survey Squadron (LRSS) and Navy's Deployable Geospatial Support Team (DGST) in existing facilities at HMAS Penguin.


This AusTender ATM will remain open until Feb 2020 and updated with the briefing pack and further information or notices as they become available.

Interested parties are invited to submit any questions or request for clarifications in writing, via email to Land.1771@defence.gov.au. Anonymised queries and responses may be published as part of the ongoing industry engagement.
