Distributed Common Ground System

The DoD’s DCGS is a family of fixed and deployable ground processing systems that support the real-time collection, analysis, and dissemination of intelligence and imagery from manned and unmanned reconnaissance sources.

SDL supplies key technologies for the military’s DCGS program, including ground station hardware, data link interface solutions, and imagery exploitation software. SDL tailors these products to the specific needs of the customer (e.g., different sensors in use) while using common components and interfaces that facilitate data sharing.

SDL’s contributions enable the acquisition, interpretation, and sharing of actionable intelligence data in real time between the four forces’ DCGS programs.
