FAS Project on Intelligence Reform

Enhanced Imagery System (EIS)

The Enhanced Imaging System (EIS) will represent the next generation of raw source material for exploitation within the USIGS Architecture, NIMA and NIMA's external customers. EIS consists of two effectivities, E-300 and E-305, that will provide new capabilities to the USIGS. USIGS must be capable of tasking, processing, archiving, disseminating, and exploiting EIS data. Many aspects of E-300 and E-305 will impact NIMA USIGS systems and programs which must be carefully assessed for proper integration throughout its entire life-cycle.

Data format changes (E-300-Enhanced Collection System (ECS)) and new capabilities (E-305-new radar capability) will result from these two effectivities. NIMA must insure that the imagery, imagery intelligence, and geospatial production systems incorporate the required interface changes to assure minimum impact to its imagery, imagery intelligence, and geospatial production capability and associated external customer systems.
