USAF Awards Imagery and Consulting Contracts
October 9, 2017

The U.S. Air Force (USAF) has announced the award of two 12-month contracts totaling $7.6 million in support of the USAF GeoBase program, led by the Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC) in San Antonio, Texas, to Woolpert, a national architecture, engineering and geospatial (AEG) firm.

GeoBase is the program of record that provides installation geospatial information and services to assist with inventorying, operating and stewarding all built and natural infrastructure assets across worldwide USAF facilities.

Under the first awarded contract, Woolpert will collect and deliver orthoimagery and lidar data over 40 Air Force installations in eight countries. This $5.3 million contract is part of a regular cycle of imagery collection that provides the USAF with a high-fidelity image of the real-world installation environment. Each image serves dual functions as providing a basis for identifying and compiling current, authoritative layers of man-made and environmental assets, as well as a powerful visual backdrop for decision-makers who employ geospatial technologies to fulfill the requirements of the USAF’s business mission.

Under the second awarded contract, valued at $2.3 million, Woolpert will deliver consulting and geographic information systems (GIS) support to multiple Air Force organizations. The consulting services range from tactical, on-site daily operations to strategic consulting involving policy, enterprise architecture, and multiple other services to help ensure the USAF derives the greatest benefits from its investment in geospatial information resources, data systems and imagery.

These contracts are underway and will expire in September 2018.
