The GEO-Energy Summit 2014 will provide a forum for Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle’s technology-related economic development initiatives in geospatial technology and energy resiliency. The Summit offers an educational program to discuss the synergies among each to explore how to leverage the collective expertise in geospatial information and energy management to provide for domestic homeland security and energy independence.
We look to focus on the myriad geospatial applications and opportunities offered within our region including geospatial intelligence (GEOINT), commercial satellite technology and remote sensing, and homeland security.
