With General Dynamics TAC-MAAS systems, forward-deployed teams are now able to more effectively process and exploit full motion video from manned and unmanned ISR platforms.

FAIRFAX, Va. – General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems has delivered nine of its next-generation TAC-MAAS processing, exploitation and dissemination (PED) systems to the U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM). These commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) tactical systems process full motion video (FMV) from most intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) platforms, and will enhance SOCOM’s ability to capture, analyze and search mission-critical FMV to derive real-time actionable intelligence and improve situational awareness.

“With its suite of essential tools for video enhancement, event-tagging and geospatial search, TAC-MAAS meets the unique mission requirements of the U.S. Special Operations Command,” said Mike Manzo, director of Geospatial Solutions at General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems. “TAC-MAAS’ intuitive interface can also be mastered with minimal training and operational support helping to ensure there is little to no downtime when integrating this solution into existing workflows and CONOPS.”

Designed for in-theater operations where ease-of-use and low system overhead are vital, TAC-MAAS can be installed, configured and maintained by operators in the field on ruggedized laptops. Capable of robustly handling the capture, cataloguing and sharing of FMV streams in extremely demanding environments, TAC-MAAS also allows operators to mark up and disseminate derived images and video clips.
