Engility Supports National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency To Launch Innovative Applications Technology Program

Official Press Release


Program called a "Win-Win" for government, industry and the public

CHANTILLY, Va., May 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Engility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:EGL), today joined the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) to announce an innovative government program to solicit, screen and acquire geospatial applications from commercial developers.

With the Innovative GEOINT App Provider Program (IGAPP), NGA has developed a platform that captures the creativity of commercial application developers and bridges the gap between government contracting procedures and non-traditional businesses.

"We are extremely excited to partner with NGA and bring this ground-breaking program to government and the applications industry," said Engility President and CEO Tony Smeraglinolo. "Through this creative program, application developers will use unclassified geospatial data to build applications that will provide users with a wide range of content, including air, land and sea navigation information, as well as mapping and infrastructure imagery that would provide critical information in emergency situations.

"NGA's IGAPP program director has called this a '… win-win for government, industry and the American public,' and I could not agree more. We are very proud to support this first-of-its-kind initiative."

NGA awarded a four-year, $25 million contract to TASC, an Engility company, to manage and operate IGAPP, which facilitates the delivery of the application creations to the NGA GEOINT App Store (apps.nga.mil). The App Store is NGA's online store front that provides downloadable applications for mobile, web and desktop devices.

IGAPP serves as a trusted broker between commercial vendors and government agencies who are interested in acquiring applications. In this capacity, IGAPP screens, registers and approves vendors and provides the infrastructure and support to test and offer innovative mapping apps using data from NGA and other organizations that will then be available through the GEOINT App Store.

Under TASC, IGAPP has already reached out to application vendors and found strong interest among industry. IGAPP will exhibit at the Apps World Conference, May 12-13, 2015, at Moscone Center West in San Francisco, Calif. The IGAPP exhibit also will be in the USGIF GEOINT Symposium from June 22-25, 2015, at the Washington Convention Center in Washington DC.
