GEOHuntsville 2017 ROADMAP Demonstration/Exercise (DEMEX)
TUESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2017
At the Von Braun Center
700 Monroe Street, Huntsville, Alabama
GEOHuntsville Members and Guests!
You are invited to attend our Blueprint For Safety Phase IV DEMEX where we will test and demonstrate Advanced Situational Awareness and Information Sharing through the Tactical Workspace.
Attendees will see how response to real world events can be enhanced using Sensors, Internet of Things Technologies, and "Ultra-fast Deployment" of Unmanned Aircraft Systems to bring actionable information to the Decision Maker. This fast-paced DEMEX is based on an active shooter, hostage, IED scenario and will be held on Tuesday, August 22nd at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
but SPACE IS LIMITED so
A Demonstration period will be held in the afternoon to allow participants and observers hands-on time with the technology and one-on-one time with the technologists and operators.

Our DEMEX event will be co-located with the 2017 Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) Pathfinder Symposium August 22-24 at the Von Braun Center. Seats for the Symposium are limited. Local, State, Federal (Military and Civilian), and Educational (including students) personnel will be allowed to participate in the AUVSI Symposium at NO FEE but a separate registration is required to attend. Registration information for the Symposium can be found HERE. I hope you will plan to attend.
The GEOHuntsville technical and planning teams, facility managers, responders, chiefs and stakeholders have been working hard to put together a very exciting, yet "plausible" real world scenario for this DEMEX and we are grateful for their tremendous support! As we race to the deadline, there is still much to do.
Our planning teams and individual working groups continue to work on their pieces of the demo --so please stay tuned for details through your working group's distributions.
