The UK's armed forces have deployed a £1.5m high-security IT system to retrieve digital maps, surveys and technical documents wherever they are in the world.

By connecting to the geographic archive via satellite, the army, navy and air force will be able to access critical information needed for the planning of operations, terrain analysis and battle manoeuvres.

Built by the Defence Geographic Centre (DGC), the division of the Ministry of Defence (MoD) responsible for providing digital mapping, the system also transmits and backs ups video files and other essential geospatial data.
