BAE Demonstrates XTS Guard 5's Features for Intelligence Data Sharing Operations

BAE Demonstrates XTS Guard 5's Features for Intelligence Data Sharing Operations - top government contractors - best government contracting eventBAE Systems showcased the ability of its XTS Guard 5 software to streamline and secure information sharing operations among federal agencies and networks at the 2018 Enterprise Challenge this past spring.

The company said Tuesday the system provided intelligence agencies with geospatial imagery and data to share different data types such as email, attachments and chat from various security networks in near real-time.

XTS Guard 5 is programmed to allow data analysts to collect previously unattainable information in a bid to help save time and lessen cost.

Kevin Malone, vice president of analytics systems at BAE, said the company's ability to produce data analysis systems led to the development of a product that can help U.S. military intelligence organizations to transfer data from multiple sources without disruptions.

BAE ran XTS Guard 5 on the Geospatial eXploitation Products platform, which is designed to perform data management, geospatial production, image exploitation, intelligence reporting and tracking analytics services.

The Office of the Undersecretary of Defense launched EC-18 to provide a platform for Defense Department agencies and international partners to present their offerings for data sharing operations.
