Intelligence and Geospatial Analysts require accurate and timely information in order to make the rapid decisions necessary to allow the production of GEOINT products for a variety CONOPS, including emergency response and protection of critical infrastructure. The Knowvation GS Geospatial Content Management System (GeoCMS) will fuse vast amounts of geospatial and non-geospatial data from different sources and sensors over different time frames. Knowvation GS provides collection, discovery, exploitation, analysis, and dissemination advantages that enhance operational efficiency. This combination of powerful geospatial data management tools and intuitive user interfaces permits users better and more accurate access to the correct information, which is an essential component of faster and better decision making at a reduced cost.

PTFS’ 100% web based GeoCMS can be utilized as the client’s repository of record in which content is ingested, protected, stored, managed, and searched. In addition, the client can maintain content in other repositories and shared drives and utilize Knowvation GS’ ability to build a composite federated search index. This ability provides a discovery solution where one search finds all information regardless of the data origin or location. The Knowvation GS server can be located at the client’s site, hosted by PTFS or in the Amazon cloud as a Software-as-a-Service model. Knowvation GS is now available on the C2S cloud in the IC marketplace.
