Northrop Grumman Presents Geospatial Data to Philmont Scout Ranch

Posted on 04 November 2010 by Press Release

Northrop Grumman Corporation announced the donation of a robust geospatial data set and capability to the Boy Scouts of America in support of their 100th anniversary and to help further scouting education.

Northrop Grumman presented the data to the Boy Scouts at a ceremony at the GEOINT 2010 Symposium in New Orleans on Tuesday, Nov. 2. During this exhibition, Northrop Grumman also used the data to showcase their geo-enterprise on-demand solutions.

The data set, which includes high-resolution Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data and electro-optical imagery over the Philmont Scout Ranch and Cimarron, N.M., is representative of Northrop Grumman’s complete, end-to-end geospatial capability. The company utilized its airborne collection capability, including sensors and aircraft, its advanced processing capability, and extrapolated key information from the data which will help the Boy Scouts garner a better understanding of their environment while at the ranch. In Northrop Grumman’s continued partnership with the Boy Scouts, the company will be expanding the types of data that can benefit the scouts and use the information for research and development.

“Northrop Grumman is proud to use our technology to deliver this important data to the Boy Scouts of America,” said John Olesak, Northrop Grumman vice president of integrated intelligence systems. “We congratulate the Boy Scouts on their 100-year anniversary and hope that this data will enhance the Philmont experience for Boy Scouts for generations to come.”

The data will be delivered on one of Northrop Grumman’s state-of-the-art geospatial appliances. Partners on the project included ESRI and TerraGo.
