Visualizing cyber situational awareness and understanding at scale and at the tactical level is a critical component to providing future Soldiers with the concepts and capabilities needed to ensure over-match and over-dominance by our military.
During last week’s Geography2050 Symposium, hosted by the American Geographical Society, Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc. (RGi®) CEO Stephen Gillotte presented RGi’s research into how geospatial is the shared language to communicate situational awareness leading to effective Command and Control (C2) and a common situational understanding of the multi-domain battlespace.
Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc. (RGi®) has entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. Army’s Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Center (C5ISR Center) to collaborate on Research and Development (R&D) projects.
The CRADA’s objective is to jointly develop C5ISR concepts, techniques, technologies, and software to enhance U.S. Army Mission Command software.
“RGi is working hard to develop technologies that enhance commander and staff understanding of the impacts of the cyber domain on missions and ongoing operations,” said RGi CEO, Stephen Gillotte. “Our joint mission through this CRADA is to develop and transition innovative Mission Command software capabilities to soldiers.”
As part of the CRADA, RGi will provide technical perspectives and expertise in the development of Artificial Intelligence, Autonomy, or Machine Learning (AIAML) software to support C5ISR projects, including new algorithms, methods, and techniques to increase the effectiveness of Mission Command software. These efforts are in line with RGi’s R&D efforts that include: 1) Tactical Cyber C2 enabled via Situational Awareness & Understanding, 2) Computer vision at collection scale achieved via Machine Learning algorithms, and 3) Future Tactical Operations Center supporting conflicts with near-peer adversaries.
Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc. (RGi®) has named Brian Loggins to lead business development and strategic growth. In this capacity, Loggins will drive RGi’s engagement with new and existing C5ISR customers.
tremendous growth we are experiencing in the C5ISR community, we are thrilled
to have Brian join our team, said Stephen Gillotte, RGi CEO. “Brian is invested
in solving some of today’s tough National Security challenges, such as Cyber
Situational Awareness and Understanding, Assured Position, Navigation, and
Timing (PNT) and implementing AI/ML technologies into the enterprise to support
Loggins brings over 30 years of involvement in National Security, with the past 13 years in industry, leading business development and long-range strategic planning focused on DoD, IC, and Cyber. Prior to joining RGi, he led long-range strategic planning in Full Spectrum Cyber and ISR for the cyber and intelligence business at Northrop Grumman. His industry career has followed an impressive 21-year career in the U.S. Army, which culminated as a Lieutenant Colonel and the senior geospatial officer on the Army Staff in the Pentagon.
“I’m committed to helping our government customers achieve mission success,” said Loggins. “We’ll drive forward, building on RGi’s strong geospatial heritage, focused on helping our customers tackle their hardest problems.”
Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc. (RGi®) is proud to be recognized by CIOReview Magazine as one of the Top 10 Defense Technology Consulting/Services Companies in 2019. CIOReview’s editorial team selected RGi based on its technological advancements and robust services that bolster national security efforts.
As part of its profile on RGi, CIOReview explains how RGi is visualizing cyber situational awareness and understanding at the tactical level. “We are defining the next generation of geospatial technologies that form the shared language that aligns military efforts in the multi-domain battlespace,” said Stephen Gillotte, CEO. The profile further describes how RGi has strategically expanded its offerings to include Cyber Situational Awareness & Understanding, Assured Position, Navigation, & Timing (A-PNT) in austere/hostile environments, and Artificial Intelligence (AI)/Machine Learning (ML) technologies.
