2017 GEOHuntsville Demonstration/Exercise Planning is well underway!
As we move toward our 2017 GEOHuntsville Demonstration and Exercise we are pleased to report that our GEOHuntsville's GEOINT, Responder and newly formed Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) working groups meeting held May 22nd was a great success .
The technical team, facility managers, responders, chiefs and stakeholders continue working hard to put together a very exciting, yet "plausible" real world scenario and now we are widening the collaboration! At the kickoff meeting, we briefed the scenario and objectives of the demo/exercise, fostered dialog among attendees, and gathered feedback and ideas -- from this, we have now formed a smaller planning team and are getting down to the brass tacks of planning and executing the August demo/exercise. This process continues to work very well for us and provides an excellent opportunity for all working group member and stakeholder to participate in the planning and execution.
THE PLANNING TEAM MEETING WILL BE THURSDAY, JUNE 22nd at the Public Safety Training Academy (Former Johnson High School Campus) from 3:00-3:45pm.
THE UAS WORKING GROUP WILL MEET DIRECTLY FOLLOWING THIS MEETING from 3:45-4:30pm to discuss details of participation in the DEMEX.
Currently, we are planning to hold our demonstration/exercise in conjunction the 2017 Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) Pathfinder Symposium at the Von Braun Center. Plans for the symposium are currently underway and more details will be released soon.
