For the seventh consecutive year, the RGi team and guests spent time away together on a year-end corporate trip. This year’s four day, three night event was held at the beautiful Ritz Carlton in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
The RGi team spent their days relaxing in cabanas on the pool deck, sailing the warm Florida waters on a catamaran and enjoying the company of their friends and colleagues. Of course, we did manage to squeeze in a small amount of corporate business between all the fun.
If you’d like to join RGi on our 2018 corporate trip, please join our team – we are hiring! See our Careers page for current opportunities.
Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc. (RGi®) won a follow-on task order as a subcontractor in support of the Combat Terrain Information Systems (CTIS) Program Office, specifically supporting the Instrument Set, Reconnaissance and Surveying Capabilities (ISRSC).
ISRSC is a set of digital tools that provide the Engineer with the capability to rapidly perform reconnaissance, construction site planning, engineering project management, surveying, inventory management, and obstacle reporting.
RGi will provide systems and software engineering, development, testing and integration services for the latest upgrade to the currently fielded system.
The 2017 Hurricane Maria was the tenth most intense Atlantic hurricane on record, causing catastrophic damage and a major humanitarian crisis in both Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Two months later, less than half of Puerto Rico has access to basic services such as electricity, many are still without potable water, and communications are limited with cellular service interrupted.
Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc. (RGi®) is committed to helping relief organizations in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin islands, and has made a corporate donation to the American Red Cross on behalf of our friends at the American Geographical Society (AGS). In addition, RGi supplied a new portable generator to a fellow GEOINT community member whose family remains without reliable access to electricity.

Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc. (RGi®) was a proud sponsor of the Chairman’s Dinner at the 2017 Geography2050 – The Future of Mobility event, hosted by the American Geographical Society.
Geography2050 is a multi-year strategic dialog about the vital trends that will reshape the geography of our nation and our planet by 2050. This year’s event focused on the Future of Mobility, including how mobility innovations will reshape our world’s geography, how these innovations change our basic perception of space and time, and how the geospatial revolution will help drive this revolution in mobility.

Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc’s (RGi’s®) CEO Stephen Gillotte presented to a group of University of Maryland’s (UMD) Center for Geospatial Information Science graduate students on geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) careers in the Defense and Intelligence space.
Steve’s discussion with the students centered around what career options students have both pre- and post-graduation, including roles within academia, government contracting and direct government employment. Steve shared his own personal story of how he took his passion for GEOINT and created a company in RGi that works with numerous Defense, Intelligence and Federal agencies to make an Immediate ImpactTM on the safety and security of our nation.
While still in its first year as a Masters-level program, the UMD GEOINT program expects a surge in enrollment given the Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia area has one of the highest concentrations of GEOINT jobs in the United States. For more information on the UMD GEOINT program, click here.
Under the GRIDS II contract, RGi created an open source, lightweight geospatial performance enhancing proxy (GPEP) tool for cascading services that can be utilized in both a connected and disconnected environment. GPEP allows interoperability between systems by using the National System for Geospatial-Intelligence (NSG) standard while allowing a tactical operating center (TOC) to access map data even while in a disconnected state.
The RGi team utilized the Distributed Common Ground System-Army’s (DCGS-A) existing MapProxy software and added a user interface (UI) and geospatial standards that are NSG compliant. The new tool gives users the capability to download services locally and create NSG-compliant GeoPackages in a SQLite data format, which can then be loaded onto mobile handhelds, web tools and other mapping platforms.
RGi’s new GPEP tool will be distributed to both the Army Geospatial Center (AGC), as well as pushed back to DCGS-A. For more information, visit the project’s repository at https://gitlab.com/GitLabRGI/nsg/gpep.
In preparation for his new role on the Virginia Tech Computer Science Department’s Advisory Board, Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc’s (RGi’s®) CEO Stephen Gillotte spent time with the Virginia Tech Computer Science Resources Consortium (CSRC).
Steve participated in several student events where he met with all levels of undergrads to discuss life after graduation, working with recruiters, how to negotiate offers with both small and large companies, as well as the everyday challenges of the work environment. During these exchanges, Steve emphasized the value of having a personal brand, community activism, extracurricular activities, and the importance of continuous learning throughout a career.
Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc. (RGi®) has appointed Glenn Gillis as our new Director, Business Development and Strategic Growth. In this capacity, Gillis will lead RGi’s growth with new and existing Military C4ISR customers.
“With growth that has nearly doubled each year since our founding, we are thrilled to have Glenn join our team, providing the strategic direction we need to continue our rapid trajectory,” said Stephen Gillotte, RGi CEO. “Glenn is a senior BD executive who has both the high-level executive presence and the ability to roll up his sleeves as a hands-on executor.”
Gillis brings 34 years of C4ISR, cyber, comms/networks, high-performance community and Intel systems experience to RGi. Prior to joining our team, he was the Senior Business Development Executive at CACI and SURVICE Engineering Company, where he provided strategic direction and led business development efforts on the C4ISR market portfolio in Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, resulting in more than $300M in new business.
“RGi offers innovative technologies through an entrepreneurial spirit that is shared across the entire organization collaboratively,” said Gillis. “I take pride in joining a team that focuses on both the success of their customers and their people.”
The American Geographical Society (AGS) recently published an article featuring RGi and our CEO, Steve Gillotte. The article discusses how RGi works to “improve the mobility of data and information in austere environments by providing consistent and reliable access to geospatial data and information to disadvantaged users.” The article goes on to highlight RGi’s R&D investment in Predictive Activity Based Planning, and how the team is exploring how machine learning and natural language processing algorithms can analyze Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) and strategic/tactical operational data in order to predict the likelihood that an event will take place.
According to AGS, “the world of geography is fortunate to have RGi pushing the boundaries of geospatial awareness, technology and knowledge.” To read the full article, please visit the AGS blog.
