The UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) has awarded a three-year contract to Esri UK to establish its Strategic Geospatial Partnership.
The new Partnership builds on a 20 year relationship between the MoD and Esri UK in which Esri UK has supported land, maritime and air domains with its technology and services.
The Partnership will involve Esri UK working with Defence Digital to help deliver an MOD-wide location strategy; a strategy that will enable UK Defence to best use the power of location as a true force multiplier, helping to achieve and maintain Information Advantage. As part of the Partnership, the MOD will be able to deploy the full suite of Esri’s ArcGIS products to extract insight from location-enabled data in an open, scalable and evergreen manner across its entire information architecture.
As well as world-leading Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology, Esri UK will also provide a comprehensive package of support services to help bring the location strategy to life.
Maj Gen Richard Spencer, Director Delivery of Intelligence and Expeditionary Services within Defence Digital said, “This Strategic Partnership is an important step in Defence’s digital transformation programme. The extended use of Esri’s GIS technology will enable us to more easily create, capture, analyse and share location enabled information to make better-informed, data driven, decisions.”
