Airbus Defense and Space Partners with AMREL for Easy Access to Geospatial Data for GEOINT Operations

Airbus Defense and Space and American Reliance, Inc. (AMREL) have partnered to integrate GATOR (Geospatial Appliance Targeted for Operational Response) into a rugged one-box laptop solution called the GATOR Rugged Geospatial Laptop. In the most difficult and demanding areas of the world, this encapsulated geospatial server enables easy access to geospatial data even when the internet isn’t available.

Even in remote locations with uncertain connectivity or unavailable networks, operators now have geospatial intelligence at their fingertips. This integrated rugged hardware/geospatial software solution streams imagery and GIS (Geographic Information System) data into software environments such as Google Earth, FalconView, ArcGIS for Desktop, and GAME Fugitive. Data is viewable with an internet browser. The geospatial server GATOR is a useful tool for warfighters, first responders, exploratory crew, researchers, field workers, oil & mining crews, humanitarian/disaster relief, and utility staff.

The GATOR Rugged Geospatial Laptop is built on AMREL’s durable mobile computer platform. AMREL leverages their patented Flexbay technology, providing seamless connectivity between the GATOR module and the rugged laptop. The battle-grade laptop incorporates 30 years of AMREL rugged expertise, and is designed for quick customization and integration.

"Integrating our GATOR appliance into the rugged laptops from AMREL enables us to offer a solution to first responders and field operators from the GEOINT Community who need support in isolated areas," said Greg Buckman, Head of Airbus Defense and Space’s Intelligence Business activities in North America. "We are excited to see how this complete solution will provide mission-critical intelligence to users on the ground."

"The GATOR Rugged Geospatial Laptop is an ideal solution for situations where failure’s not an option," said Linda Talcott, AMREL’s Director of Product Marketing. "It’s a perfect match. GATOR is designed to run mission critical geospatial applications in remote areas, while AMREL’s laptops have proven their ruggedness in the most challenging environments in the world" she added.

To learn more about the GATOR Rugged Geospatial Laptop, please visit the Airbus Defense and Space booth, #325, at the Esri UC in San Diego, CA June 27 - June 30.
