CJMTK facilitates the ability of algorithms to uncover relevant geospatial products "hidden" in terabytes of data and transfer the necessary information to the platform level.
* CJMTK. This tool facilitates a discovery and dissemination service that will find the appropriate geospatial data and then push the relevant tools to the user.
The route planning tools available within CJMTK are particularly applicable to the Tactical Ground Reporting System.
By using the best of government and industry architecture, the CJMTK program will provide the necessary linkage to transition geospatial information into user platforms.
Three years later--in 2002--NGA acquired the CJMTK following a successful source-selection competition.
CJMTK is available through three major licensing options:
* Option 2, for the extended user community, is available to users who do not qualify as members of the C2I community but want to be interoperable with the CJMTK community at their own expense.
The C2I community has already capitalized on the advantages of the CJMTK, fielding over 235 mission-approved applications.
An early adopter of CJMTK, the Army's Maneuver Control System, continues to harness CJMTK's power of visualizing and sharing geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) by integrating commercial technology into the tactical environment.
The Air Force Portable Flight Planning System and Joint Mission Planning System are integrating CJMTK to provide the capabilities of an advanced geographic information system to the C2I mission-planning community.
This system uses CJMTK to provide a simple, intuitive user interface that enables soldiers to view critical information without extensive training.
A Northrop Grumman-led team (that included Esri, Analytical Graphics and Leica Geosystems) was awarded the initial $72 million CJMTK
contract in 2002 by the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (another precursor to the NGA).
