Are you prepared?

National Preparedness Month (NPM) is recognized each September to promote family and community disaster planning now and throughout the year. As our nation continues to respond to COVID-19, wildfires, hurricanes and flooding there is no better time to be involved.

The 2020 NPM theme is: "Disasters Don’t Wait. Make Your Plan Today."

What do you do when your customer needs to see video today with technology that takes several days to process?

If you're Ricky Massaro, a Geospatial Research Laboratory remote sensing specialist, you create an algorithm to scan tons of video imagery for a reliable image in a snap. Massaro was commended earlier this year (pre-COVID) by the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) director for his patented algorithm to process full motion video into photogrammetric clusters. #ArmyTech

Until next time Maj. Parry!
Maj. Joe Parry is ALWAYS in the MIDDLE of the action, no different than where he's sitting in this photo. He's the kind of guy who brings solutions. He's the kind of teammate who brings plans together with excellence (around three years running). He's the kind of plans officer with the Army Engineering Branch, who we missed MONTHS before he was actually leaving us this weekend for a Permanent Change of Station to Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Seattle, Washington. #Honor #Selflessservice #Loyalty #MAJParry

What does Army Geospatial do for you?

The term geospatial is fairly new and often misunderstood. Army Mappers is not quite right to describe it all. What we’d like to focus on is what we can we do for you. In the early '90s the term geo-spatial was coined as a way to describe the computing environment that mirrored geographic and spatial relationships. The move from paper maps to mobile GPS brought geospatial data to the forefront. Today, Army Geospatial includes Geospatial Information Systems (GIS), analysis and imagery interpretation. The scientists and engineers at AGC primarily look for ways to engage Army commands that need increased awareness of their own location or any point on a digital map that is of interest to their mission.

NGA's Office of Sciences and Methodologies (ATS) has posted an open continuous vacancy announcement seeking image scientist candidates. This leverages the new intelligencejobs.gov interface for hiring so it looks a bit different (link below). The vacancy can be filled at St. Louis or Virginia. https://www.nsa.gov/psp/applyonline/EMPLOYEE/HRMS/c/HRS_HRAM.HRS_APP_SCHJOB.GBL?Page=HRS_APP_SCHJOB&Action=U&FOCUS=Applicant&SiteId=1 At the link above look for the GEOINT Analyst (Spectral Imagery Scientist) announcement. This is for an entry level position (GS 11 to 13 equivalent). NGA plans on having an image science hiring event on 19 or 26 January 2018 at NCE, depending on how many resumes we receive from this online post. Please help me spread the word to any of your students that may wish to take advantage of this opportunity! Regards, Frank.
The National Geodetic Survey is moving from NAD83 and NADV88 in 2022 to a time-adjusted Earth-centric datum. This will have huge ramification for the geospatial world. I would strongly encourage one and all to listen in to the following free webinar explaining what's happened. If you would like a similar brief aimed specifically at Army, please let me know and I'll make on happen.
