JAGO awarded for DataMan mapping system

The DataMan geographic system, developed by the MOD's Joint Aeronautical and Geospatial Organisation (JAGO), has been recognised as one of 2011's top five programmes and innovations in the ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) community.

At the C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) Journal's Annual Conference and Awards Ceremony, held in Washington DC in October, DataMan won the Network Systems Award. The top programmes and innovations are selected from five categories: Platforms, Sensors, Organisations, Innovations and Network Systems.

DataMan is connected to the UK military's secure network in Afghanistan and delivers a common geospatial picture via a secure online browser called GeoViewer. It brings together a huge range of otherwise disparate data from multiple sources, the common factor being location. It also delivers geospatial information directly into other Command and Control (C2) and Intelligence applications on the OVERTASK network.
