Lattice Technology Group, Inc. (LatticeTech) is a small, veteran-owned business established in 1998 as an engineering consulting firm specializing in Information Systems Integration, Test and Evaluation. Our technical and management experts provide assistance to senior corporate and government management staff responsible for integrating multiple information sources and establishing collaborative planning, operations, analysis, and exploitation environments.
LatticeTech has extensive experience in research & development and acquisition management, with an emphasis in test and evaluation. LatticeTech personnel have provided technology integration and systems engineering support across the Intelligence Community (IC), Department of Defense (DoD), and commercial arenas, including such organizations as National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and others. LatticeTech has a broad background in sensor development and testing, large pilot/prototype management, architecture framework development, systems integration, data standards development, and interoperability technologies.
LatticeTech possesses specific expertise in radar and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) technologies, including several years’ hands-on experience with Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI) and similar motion-based Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) data collection and exploitation. Through its experience supporting NGA pilots/prototypes, LatticeTech has an in-depth understanding of the GeoINT Reference Architecture, NGA networks, data links, web structures, metadata modeling, and discovery and retrieval methodologies for ISR data collection and distribution within the National System for Geospatial-Intelligence (NSG). In addition, LatticeTech has a strong familiarity with the Distributed Common Ground Station (DCGS) Integrated Backbone, NATO Network Enabled Capability, NATO Core GeoSpatial Information Services (GIS), and other related Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) programs and activities.
LatticeTech led key pilot/prototype efforts for the NGA, including planning and execution for the Empire Challenge ‘09 (EC09) Multi-Domain Awareness (MDA) Joint Capability Thread (JCT), a major component of the joint NGA/US Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM) demonstration series. In addition, LatticeTech led the development of NGA’s Track-to-Engage Limited Objective Event (TELOE) and Ocean Surveillance Limited Objective Event (OSLOE) pilots, which addressed the end-to-end “digital kill chain” from ISR collections to target engagement. As lead for the MDA JCT, LatticeTech developed test objectives, resource plans, architecture products, and Concepts of Operation (CONOPs), and coordinated across the test teams and sponsors during planning and execution.
LatticeTech support personnel managed over 20 separate initiatives, established the MDA JCT objectives, developed MDA JCT Measures of Performance (MOPs) and Measures of Effectiveness (MOEs), established requirements for test resources, spaces, communications, networks, and security, and led the development of multiple test scenarios. In addition, LatticeTech coordinated with other key participants, including the Joint ISR Management (JISRM) JCT, the GeoINT Cell, and the Command & Control Common Operational Picture (C2 COP) Working Group. The 20+ initiatives involved multiple sensors and processing/exploitation prototypes that had to be integrated and deployed seamlessly into the EC09 architecture. The architecture consisted of 6 different test locations, 3 separate security levels with multiple handling/releasibility enclaves, and 5 different networks.
In addition, LatticeTech led the development of the TELOE pilot/prototype as a risk reduction activity for SHILOE and the MDA JCT. LatticeTech coordinated with the Navy’s Weapons Engagement Office (WEO) at China Lake CA, the Littoral Surveillance Radar System (LSRS) Program Office and Operations Units, the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), and the NATO Standardisation Agreement (STANAG) 4607/4609/4676 communities for radar MTI, motion imagery, video MTI (VMTI), and ISR tracking. LatticeTech designed the pilot architecture, wrote the CONOP, and developed the resource plan for execution. In addition, LatticeTech provided subject matter expertise and coordination support to NGA for the SHILOE effort.
LatticeTech provides subject matter expertise to NGA and NATO for the development of key ISR data standards, serving as Technical Lead for the STANAG 4607, providing subject matter expertise for the development of the proposed STANAG 4676 ISR Tracking Standard, and holding the position of Secretary of the Imagery Working Group (IMWG) under NATO’s Joint Capability Group ISR (JCGISR). LatticeTech leveraged its support role for NGA interoperability pilots/prototypes to collect information on lessons learned for incorporation into the relevant STANAGs and supporting documentation. LatticeTech assisted the Custodian to develop test criteria and test cases for video and radar MTI data capture systems, readers, and exploitation tools, and integrate/deploy them into various pilots/prototypes such as Empire Challenge, Multi-sensor Aerospace-ground Joint ISR Interoperability Coalition (MAJIIC), Coalition Warrior Interoperability Demonstration (CWID), and other exercise/demonstration venues. Also, as Technical Lead for STANAG 4607, LatticeTech provided written input to the STANAG 4607 specification and corresponding Allied Engineering Documentation Publication Number 7 (AEDP-7), adjudicated third party comments to STANAG 4607 documentation, and led STANAG 4607 Custodial Support Team (CST) meetings. LatticeTech also assisted the NGA Custodian to design and document new capabilities for STANAG 4607 and publish those extensions into the Compendium of Registered Extensions.
LatticeTech provides key support to the US Surface/Ground Moving Target Indicator (S/GMTI) Community of Practice (CoP) Horizontal Integration and CONOPs Working Groups, providing consulting expertise on the application of LatticeTech’s unique Lattice Enterprise Architecture Framework (LEAF)TM methodology to S/GMTI Horizontal Integration design and track management.
LatticeTech provides NGA with vital leadership within its newly-created Military Readiness Plans and Experiments Division (MRPD). MRPD is the “Face of NGA” for experiments & demonstrations (E&D) with the responsibility to supply E&D management, security, and network support for internal and external NGA sponsored initiatives. LatticeTech has a proven track record of success and is known for unrelenting dedication to the mission. Due to this reputation, LatticeTech has earned the positions of demonstration lead for Empire Challenge 10 (EC10), co-lead for Trident Warrior 10 (TW10), team member for Coalition Warrior Interoperability Demonstration (CWID) and Trident Spectre, as well as coordinator for the GEOINT Working Group (GWG). In these positions, LatticTech offers expert advice and guidance for completing E&D tasks on time, within budget, and with superior quality. More specifically, LatticeTech has demonstrated its expertise within the experiments and demonstrations field by creating information papers for executive officers, event standard operating procedures, and acting as the subject matter expert for EC10 GEOINT requirements.
