Multi-source Intelligence Ground System (MIGS)

Multi-source Intelligence Ground System (MIGS) will receive, process, exploit, and disseminate multi-intelligence (multi-INT) data from spaceborne, airborne, and surface sensors. MIGS will baseline all Combatant Air Force [CAF] fixed and deployable intelligence ground systems to a common commercial/government off-the-shelf (COTS/GOTS) hardware and software standard. The commonality and interoperability provided by MIGS will allow intelligence units to distribute operations across the CAF, as required. Deployable assets will be modular and scaleable to satisfy specific intelligence needs and theater requirements. Initial plans for the development of MIGS include the incorporation of the Contingency Airborne Reconnaissance System (CARS), the Joint Service Imagery Processing System (JSIPS), JSIPS-Augmentation (JSIPS-A), the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Exploitation System (UES), and the Theater Airborne Reconnaissance Systemís (TARS) Digital Photo Lab (DPL) assets and capabilities into an integrated suite of shelterized and transit-cased deployable systems. Major advantages include:
