NEK Adds TerraGo Software to Defense and Intelligence Curriculum
Atlanta, Ga., April 12, 2012—NEK Advanced Securities Group, Inc. (NEK), a provider of innovative solutions to improve the operational effectiveness of United States government and commercial customers, has partnered with TerraGo® Technologies to incorporate its geospatial collaboration software into NEK’s Intelligence Services Group curriculum for the defense and intelligence industry.
The NEK Intelligence Services Group develops, designs, and executes advanced intelligence training to support criminal and terrorist network analysis. The curriculum will include courses highlighting TerraGo geospatial collaboration software and demonstrate how warfighters can leverage TerraGo GeoPDF® solutions to extend, exchange and exploit geo-referenced maps, imagery, audio, video, geoforms, Web services and other intelligence in connected or offline environments.
“NEK is recognized for providing U.S. forces with courses to facilitate preparedness for a variety of scenarios ranging from in theater to at station,” said Bruce Parkman, CEO of NEK. “We continually seek to expand our curriculum to meet the evolving needs of our U.S. government customers and we are confident that the new TerraGo courses will provide warfighters with the ability to harness the power of GEOINT regardless of their level of GIS training and expertise.”
“GEOINT uniquely provides increased situational awareness and spatial reference for improved decision making,” said John Hernandez, Frost & Sullivan Aerospace and Defense industry analyst. “TerraGo geospatial collaboration solutions are widely deployed and proven in mission critical roles to enable warfighters and law enforcement personnel without access to sophisticated GIS to more easily and efficiently access, update and share GEOINT anywhere.”
“By incorporating TerraGo geospatial collaboration software into its curriculum, NEK will empower defense, intelligence and law enforcement personnel with the ability to collaborate peer-to-peer in the field or send GEOINT back to command to produce more relevant, current products for better decision-making to advance the mission at hand,” said John Timar, TerraGo director of strategic alliances.
The NEK Intelligence Services Group curriculum will include courses detailing how TerraGo ComposerTM, TerraGo Publisher TM for ArcGIS and TerraGo Toolbar TM support defense and intelligence efforts by empowering warfighters with current and relevant GEOINT.
