To help meet the demands of a rapidly moving world, Raytheon has created an online app marketplace and an online service solution to deliver technical capabilities to customers faster than they can get them today.
Raytheon is unveiling the Appsmart™ market and GOtab™ online services during this year's GEOINT 2011 Symposium in San Antonio, Texas, Oct. 16 to 19.
The Appsmart market targets users in the defense, intelligence and first-responder communities for faster technology delivery than they can get today.
One of those capabilities, which can be delivered via Appsmart or directly to multiple platforms, is called GOtab online services. GOtab online services enables users to discover and access geospatial intelligence data, products and services online and on-demand. GOtab responds to users' need for rapid, easy-to-access geospatial intelligence information providing timely access to the most current information for a military operation, a natural disaster or humanitarian crisis.
Both the Appsmart market and GOtab online services are in beta versions now.
A future version of the Appsmart market, for example, will include a software developers kit developers can download and use to develop apps, uploading them securely back into the market for sale.
"The idea is that the Appsmart market will be self-sustaining and performance-based, protecting intellectual property of third-party developers," Bigham said. "Because it's a marketplace, Appsmart will incentivize innovation through market forces."
