Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc. (RGi®) CEO Stephen Gillotte will discuss all things artificial intelligence (AI) during the “Mapping AI to the GEOINT Workforce” panel, hosted by MeriTalk and USGIF, on Wednesday, May 27th at 1:30 pm ET.
During the panel, Steve will share his thoughts on the unprecedented opportunity to transform the productivity, capacity, and capability of the GEOINT workforce through human-machine teaming. He’ll weigh in on what skills will be required of tomorrow’s workforce, such as data analytics and critical thinking, as well as what strategies RGi uses to adapt its workforce to AI.
Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc. (RGi®) is honored to announce that Kevin Mercy has been selected as the recipient of the 2nd annual $10,000 RGi Scholarship for Geospatial and Engineering, given in partnership with The United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF).
Kevin is a senior at the University of Southern California (USC) where he is on track to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Archaeology, with a double minor in Human Security and Geospatial Intelligence and Computer Programming in 2020. In one of his stellar recommendation letters, Kevin’s professor described him as “the textbook definition of a self-starter,” and someone who “epitomizes our nation’s calling for the dedicated and inquisitive learner.”
For the past several months,
Kevin has worked with The Aerospace Corporation and the USC Spatial Sciences
Institute to create open source 3D GIS data service and analytic platforms that
will help organizations to store, serve, and analyze 3D data, which is a
wide-spread issue within the GEOINT community. In his spare time, Kevin serves
as a board member of The Canterbury USC Foundation, where he helps run a hot
meal food ministry program on USC’s campus for underprivileged college students
that serves approximately 100 meals each week during the academic year.
“I am thrilled to have Kevin as
our 2019 RGi Scholarship recipient,” said RGi CEO Stephen Gillotte. “He is the
perfect composite of engineer, scientist, and humanist, which directly aligns
with the core values of our company. I look forward to his many contributions
to the GEOINT community and our nation.”

RGi’ers Stephen Gillotte, Sidney Medford, Mike Lee, Steven Lander, Daniel Maso, Becky Elstad and Joseph Svrcek are all attending the event to learn from leading experts and network with industry colleagues and friends. Look for our team in Tampa!
Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc. (RGi®) has partnered with The United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) to offer a new award as part of its 2018 USGIF Scholarship Program.
The $10,000 RGi Scholarship for Geospatial and Engineering will be awarded to an undergraduate who demonstrates financial need and is interested in or studying both the engineering and geospatial disciplines.
“RGi has a long history of supporting student growth and development, and we are thrilled to continue these efforts with USGIF through an annual RGi scholarship,” said RGi CEO Stephen Gillotte. “We need to continue to build a diverse base of students who are passionate about the future of GEOINT.”
Every year, USGIF awards scholarships of various amounts to exceptional students studying the geospatial sciences and related fields. In total, USGIF has awarded more than $1.1 million in scholarships since the program began in 2004. “USGIF and RGi have partnered to recognize and support those students with a geospatial and engineering background who are committed to becoming competitive in this market,” said USGIF Director of Academic Programs Dr. Camelia Kantor.

The 2017 Hurricane Maria was the tenth most intense Atlantic hurricane on record, causing catastrophic damage and a major humanitarian crisis in both Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Two months later, less than half of Puerto Rico has access to basic services such as electricity, many are still without potable water, and communications are limited with cellular service interrupted.
Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc. (RGi®) is committed to helping relief organizations in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin islands, and has made a corporate donation to the American Red Cross on behalf of our friends at the American Geographical Society (AGS). In addition, RGi supplied a new portable generator to a fellow GEOINT community member whose family remains without reliable access to electricity.

Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc’s (RGi’s®) CEO Stephen Gillotte presented to a group of University of Maryland’s (UMD) Center for Geospatial Information Science graduate students on geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) careers in the Defense and Intelligence space.
Steve’s discussion with the students centered around what career options students have both pre- and post-graduation, including roles within academia, government contracting and direct government employment. Steve shared his own personal story of how he took his passion for GEOINT and created a company in RGi that works with numerous Defense, Intelligence and Federal agencies to make an Immediate ImpactTM on the safety and security of our nation.
While still in its first year as a Masters-level program, the UMD GEOINT program expects a surge in enrollment given the Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia area has one of the highest concentrations of GEOINT jobs in the United States. For more information on the UMD GEOINT program, click here.
RGi won a follow-on Defense Systems Technical Area Tasks (DS TATs) contract as a subcontractor to Alion Science and Technology in support of the PM Distributed Common Ground Station – Army (DCGS-A) Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT).
DS TATs is a five-year, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) multiple award contract vehicle that allows RGi to focus on developing, testing and integrating the computational techniques and procedures that enable DCGS-A and Mission Command systems to provide real-time, geospatially correct Common Operating Picture (COP) which meets all requirements for sharing and reusing Geospatial and GEOINT in military operations.
