Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc. (RGi®) is a proud sponsor of the 2020 FedGeoDay event being held online June 11-12, where RGi CEO Stephen Gillotte will lead an Open Mapping for Program Success panel at 9:45 am on day 1. During the panel, Steve will guide the panelists through a discussion on the benefits and challenges of an open ecosystem approach versus a proprietary or hybrid solution. He’ll also tackle some of the myths of both policy and technology, and offer perspectives on how the audience can get involved in supporting decision making.
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®) formed a new partnership with T-REX, the downtown St. Louis technology innovation center.
T-REX operates an early-stage advanced IT startup incubator, hosts an Innovation Conference Center, and leads strategic initiatives to foster economic growth through advanced information technologies.
As part of the new partnership, RGi CEO Stephen Gillotte will join the Geospatial Advisory Committee to help direct the center’s activities, mission, goal, and objectives.
“Our work with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and other partners has been pointing us further west for years,” said Gillotte. “It feels great to establish our footprint in St. Louis while supporting so many innovative, entrepreneurial efforts.”
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®) is proud to announce that our CEO, Stephen Gillotte, has been named to the Reston Children’s Center’s (RCC’s) Board of Directors.
The RCC is a non-profit community program serving the
developmental and educational needs of children and providing support systems
for families. While in this role, Steve will provide strategic planning and
financial guidance to help the organization promote innovative learning
opportunities while maintaining high standards of education for all children.
Thanks for your ongoing commitment to education, Steve!

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.”
In a recent WashingtonExec interview, Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc. (RGi®) CEO Stephen Gillotte discussed the current challenges and opportunities of how the government contracting industry partners with the Federal Government to augment human tasks with artificial intelligence (AI).
During the interview, Steve shared his thoughts on the
common challenge of low-sample learning, or the ability to teach AI how to
solve a problem without having many examples of the solution. According to
Steve, “For federal agencies, especially those related to national security, low-sample
learning is critical because many of the high-impact problems have few examples
either because the events occur infrequently or staffing people to collect
large numbers of examples is prohibitively expensive.”
Another big hurdle is around finding the right talent. “The
number of [data scientists and machine learning experts] with both the
expertise and the necessary clearances is small,” Steve said. “GovCon firms
need to be ready to retrain existing staff and work with colleges and
universities to identify future AI leaders.”
As for the abundance of future opportunities, Steve commented: “In my opinion, your data is always trying to tell you something; you just need to learn how to listen.”
Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc. (RGi®) recently completed its 13th Power Pack Program (P3) volunteer event, producing 180 P3 packs for elementary school children in need. Since 2017, RGi has donated, packed, and delivered 2,016 P3 packs, representing more than 3 tons of food. These P3 packs allow students to focus on their education and not their hunger.
The P3 program, run by Food For Others, is designed to provide food to young students in our community who may be at risk of hunger between school meals. Each pack contains two breakfast items, two lunch items, two dinner items, two snack items, and two drinks.
“The work that Food For Others does to help children is critical to both their well-being and their education,” said Stephen Gillotte, CEO of RGi. “RGi is proud to support this important mission and create an immediate impact in the lives of students.”
