GIANT Software Release Policy Agreement
All users request GIANT products through the GIANT web portal (www.giantsw.com). The current baseline version of GIANT has two products available for distribution: an FOUO basic disk that includes the software and initial database, and a classified database disk. Previous versions are no longer available for request or distribution, as AFNIC certification for those versions has expired.
There are several types of potential requestors:
DoD Contractors (may include U.S. universities)
Other U.S. Governmental Agencies
Foreign Mission Partners
Decision process for releasability of the FOUO GIANT software/database product:
U.S. Military - If the requestor has an email with a .mil domain, it is approved.
DoD Contractor - A U.S. Government POC/sponsor must be provided as part of the request. This POC/sponsor will verify and vouch for the contractor's
need to know
and access to the FOUO data requested.
Other U.S. Governmental Agencies - Requests from a U.S. Government agency with access to the .gov domain will be approved.
Foreign Mission Partners - release authority for GIANT may lag the official release of software. International partners may request and will receive the current version when the release authority is updated.
Other than authorized by specific release authority to U.S. Foreign Mission Partners, the classified database is not releasable to foreign requestors and will not be distributed to non-U.S. entities.
