2017 Demontration Exercise RoadMap Kickoff Meeting Announced!

As we move toward our 2017 GEOHuntsville Demonstration and Exercise our  GEOHuntsville's GEOINT, Responder and newly formed Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) working groups wil be  meeting Monday, May 22nd . 

The technical team, facility managers, responders, chiefs and stakeholders have been working hard to put together a very exciting, yet "plausible" real world scenario and  now it is time to widen the collaboration!   At the kickoff meeting,  we will brief the scenario and objectives of the demo/exercise, foster dialog among attendees, and gather feedback and ideas   -- from this, we will break off into a smaller planning team so we can get down to the brass tacks of planning and executing the August demo/exercise. This process has worked very well for us in the past and provides an excellent opportunity for every working group member and stakeholder to participate in the planning and execution, if they wish.

Individual working groups will continue to meet to work within their respective groups on their pieces of the demo. The individual groups will work on tasks such as UAS missions/flight ops, sensor development/integration, information and intelligence sharing, and Responder engagement, requirements and activities etc.

Currently, we are planning to hold our demonstration/exercise in conjunction the 2017 Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) Pathfinder Symposium  August 22-24  at the Von Braun Center. Plans for the symposium are currently underway and more details will be released soon.
