SGI agrees to help Air Force R&D

The Air Force Space Warfare Center has signed a cooperative R&D agreement with SGI Federal of Silver Spring, Md., to help develop, test and evaluate certain command and control technologies.

The purpose of the agreement, SGI officials said, is to improve space support for area commanders. The Air Force and SGI will process data gathered from space to provide commanders an integrated picture of a battlefield.

In partnership, they will examine command, control, communications and systems technologies, such as those that provide data and video feeds from unmanned aircraft, to see how systems can be integrated into a common operation. Their goal is to give commanders the best possible information for decision-making.
