Lockheed Martin is modernising the data management and fusion capabilities of the US Army's Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS-A) to improve intelligence missions.

DCGS-A is the army's premier intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) system that allows real-time, multi-source intelligence sharing and analysis.

The system is responsible for the tasking of sensors, data analysis and processing, exploitation of data, and dissemination of intelligence (TPED) across heterogeneous intelligence systems.

The company is also integrating a data management and transfer capability data mover that enables the data flow between disparate databases to provide soldiers with more a coherent view of the battlespace.

The company is also supporting the army's efforts to modernise the capabilities of DCGS-A Version 3.1, currently deployed in Afghanistan.
