LAND1771 Ph 1 will enhance Situational Awareness (SA), contribute to the foundation layers of the Common Operating Picture (COP) and provide tactical terrain analysis to the Military Appreciation Process. The project will provide geodetic and littoral survey equipment, networked geospatial and imagery analysis computer systems, and a geospatial data collection capability.
