Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) // LOGCOP – NextGen
NextGen is an enterprise portal used by DLA and non-DLA agencies to share geospatial assets, create 2D/3D maps, and perform analytics using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). We designed the application’s server architecture with a SharePoint portal as the forefront of the application. The SharePoint server takes information from database servers, ArcGIS, real-time event servers, and a GIS portal server. It is designed both as a Platform as a Service (PaaS) within the DLA Microsoft Azure environment and as an Enterprise GIS Software as a Service (SaaS) using Esri ArcGIS technologies. PioneerTech is developing features and capabilities using Esri ArcGIS technologies which include:
- Operational dashboards that are customizable for specific events and can integrate information, people, locations and events as one view.
- Situational awareness using real-time GIS feeds from cars, trucks, and planes to train the artificial intelligence model to post alerts and send SMS text messages and/or emails when a vehicle or plane crosses a specific boundary area.
- Real-time data features including RSS, Twitter, and video feeds.
- 3D visualizations that support Smart City capabilities, allowing users to view new city designs integrated with their city specific datasets.
