DGA
GHOM


Customer: Direction Générale de l’Armement (DGA)

Programme: GHOM

Supply Chain: DGA > CS Group PDA

Context

Main Picture

CS Group responsabilities are as follows:

  • Architectural analysis and system definition
  • Functional specification,
  • Committing financial proposition,
  • Realisation of mock ups and prototypes.

The features are as follows:

  • Facilitates access to relevant data
  • Insures its job consistency
  • Elaborates and spreads the Recognized Environmental Picture (NATO concept)
  • Mutualizes the environmental data exploitation, for the whole material and human army means
  • Allows to reduce costs, delays and risks for the different programs exploiting these data
  • Allows to improve interoperability and exchanges of geophysical environment related information between Defence systems and provide expertize tools and decision-making helping services.

Project implementation

The project objectives are as follows:

  • GEODE 4D is a project to set up a geophysical cross forces information system.

The processes for carrying out the project are:

  • Software V-Model

Technical characteristics

The solution key points are as follows:

  • Modular and generic architecture design;
  • Information Systems technological experience, including each environment-dedicated domain;
  • Use of tools and software worldwide known for their efficiency;
  • Use of Open-Source components to reduce both ownership and exploitation costs (licences,…).

The main technologies used in this project are:
