NGA Shuts Down Contractor Run 3D Modeling Shop

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency has shut down the facility where its staff created a three-dimensional model used in planning the raid against Osama bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

NGA said the decision was driven by belt tightening and that it will outsource three-dimensional modeling work to private companies on an as-needed basis.

The facility in Newington, VA had been run by a contractor for eight years.
