FAIRFAX, Va. -  GDNexus, an online community of technology providers created by General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, has made available its first Need Statement for the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) domain. With a focus on the intersection of analytics with image and video processing, the Need Statement will match a technology solution with a mission-critical customer requirement.

Accelerating innovation into the mission is the goal of GDNexus, said Jay Mork, chief technology officer at General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems. With GDNexus we have established an agile, repeatable process that creates new business opportunities for our members, broadens their mission understanding and meets our customers needs for innovative technologies.

Registered members of GDNexus were immediately notified via email when this Need Statement was posted to the member portal. Members can now propose technology responses via the free web portal until the May 31, 2014 deadline.

All member submissions are vetted through a comprehensive and objective review process. This helps create a level playing field for companies that might not currently supply products and solutions to the government. The GDNexus team also provides detailed feedback on every submission, based on their decades of experience supporting customers in a wide variety of domains, helping members better anticipate and meet future mission needs.
