Supporting Geospatial Efforts for DHS
Published on November 18, 2014
Geospatial innovations are often the underpinning for supporting mission effectiveness for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
From providing the actionable intelligence to FEMA in the wake of natural disasters to enhancing border protection, DHS continually relies on location-based technologies for effectively managing rapidly expanding challenges.
This week, as part of GEOINT Community Week, the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation is hosting its “USGIF Homeland Security and Defense Geospatial Exchange” in Crystal City, Virginia.
The event will provide a forum for DHS and members of industry and academia to enhance collaboration and share insights into new programs and innovations.
Thermopylae Sciences & Technology will be on hand to showcase its solutions that support DHS mission goals and requirements. In addition, Thermopylae has been a long-time partner of DHS, offering Geospatial Technical Support Services (GTSS) through the Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) of the same name, as well as being a provider of Google Enterprise solutions to the agency.
“Thermopylae’s core expertise in geospatial technologies are an ideal fit for DHS’ ongoing needs,” said Thermopylae Sciences & Technology President, AJ Clark, in a recent press release. “Our ability to provide both traditional and emerging technology support and development will help to continue DHS’ continued improvements and growth with geospatial capabilities.”
The “USGIF Homeland Security and Defense Geospatial Exchange” is taking place from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency in Crystal City, Virginia. To learn more about this event, click here.
