GEO Huntsville is one of three economic development and jobs initiatives sponsored by Mayor Tommy Battle (Energy and Cyber are the others).
- Create a collaborative effort among businesses, academia and government
- Support workforce growth and economic development
- Bring awareness to professional expertise that exists in North Alabama
- Identify job opportunities
- Establish the region as a major corridor for geospatial excellence
Huntsville is a center of the space industry.
- Huntsville can focus on the commercialization of the earth observation satellite industry opportunities in new space-borne platforms
Huntsville is vying to become one of the six pilot cities to define the policy for unmanned aerial systems (UAS) as it integrates with the National Airspace System.
- Commercialization of UAS will be a boon for the mapping industry
Huntsville has core capabilities in geospatial information systems (GIS) and software development as well as 3D visualization such as for building information modeling (BIM)
- Several companies in the region have extensive experience in this technology
Geospatial Intelligence: As a major center for defense and intelligence, Huntsville has an opportunity to utilize its existing capabilities in this arena
- Both the base of defense contractors and work performed on the Redstone Arsenal by MSIC and AMRDEC present a defined workforce on which to build.
