Air Operations

The ArcGIS Platform brings the power of location analysis to the RAF. Already adopted across UK Defence, Five Eyes and NATO, ArcGIS helps military and civilian staff manage, analyse and integrate geospatial data across all areas.


An air force is dependent on a wide range of data, from the latest reconnaissance imagery to weather data. ArcGIS plays a key role in visualising, analysing and sharing understanding, to help organisations turn data into actionable intelligence and make better decisions.
