The GEO-Energy-Cyber Summit 2013 was an extremely successful event that hosted corporations and government agencies for demonstrating emerging technologies and to support job growth and new economic development opportunities in Huntsville and the surrounding region.
The Summit provided a forum for Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle’s three technology-related economic development initiatives. The Summit offered an educational program to discuss the synergies among each to explore how to leverage the collective expertise in geospatial information, energy management and cyber security.
In 2014, we look to focus on the myriad geospatial applications and opportunities offered within our region including geospatial intelligence (GEOINT), remote sensing, and homeland security.
