The Geospatial Exploitation System (GES) for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Department of Safeguards.
Jul 2010 – Dec 2015
GCS was selected against international competition to design, develop, and deploy a geospatial system to support the analysis of imagery and geospatial data at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Department of Safeguards at the Vienna International Centre (VIC) in Vienna, Austria.
Using primarily Esri ArcGIS, the Geospatial Exploitation System (GES) is an enterprise-wide system used to analyse satellite imagery, geospatial information and associated assets for staff within the IAEA Department of Safeguards.
The GES deployed in the Department’s isolated secure Integrated Safeguards Environment, is able to store, manage, process, and securely serve geospatial data to users across the Department. The GES demonstrates the benefits of commercial off-the-shelf software integration that extends safeguards (SG) specific processes while retaining the strengths, and in cases enhances the use, of each software package while maintaining a cohesive look and feel to the interface. By employing service oriented architecture, the system is able to share and consume valuable information from disparate applications and sources from across the Department.
The GES is fully operational at the IAEA, and supports 300+ users.
