WES is the company’s flagship product that is being used to meet the growing demands of organizations around the world seeking improved decision making through better access to information. According to the company, it is the most comprehensive location-based data discovery and management solution currently available and it provides standards-based geospatial data discovery, access, retrieval, exploitation, dissemination, and collaboration.

This project, incorporated with WES, will “deliver on-demand geospatial data and products to the required operational environments with commercial performance and reliability.” It will also enhance NATO’s ability to use and apply location-based information. By combining WES into NATO’s operational geospatial platform, it will “greatly enhance NATO’s geospatial capability contributing to maintaining geospatial information superiority.”
