RGi is proud to announce that our CEO, Steve Gillotte has been named to the Virginia Tech Computer Science Department’s Advisory Board. While in this role, Steve will advise the department head on initiatives and overall direction of the department, and engage with current students to encourage and enhance their educational experience. “As a Virginia Tech CS alum, it feels great to give back to the organization that was so foundational to my own career,” Steve said. “I’ve always been passionate about education and helping the professional development of students, so it’s an honor to be a part of this distinguished group.”
RGi Software Engineer Steven Lander presented at this year’s FOSS4G event in Boston, MA on August 16, 2017. Lander’s presentation – Containerizing your geospatial applications with Docker – explained how easy Docker, and containerization in general, makes it to build and deploy geospatial applications.
Throughout his presentation, Lander showed how Docker was integrated into RGi’s continuous integration environment for testing, how containers have allowed RGi to rapidly demonstrate new capability to stakeholders, and how to debug a web application running in a Docker container using JNLP.

RGi CEO, Stephen Gillotte, was recently interviewed by CEOCFO Magazine. In his Q&A, Steve discusses how RGi differentiates itself to its own employees through a unique culture. “We are a great company to work with,” said Steve. “I do not say ‘work for’ on purpose,” he adds, explaining how RGi encourages its employees to help shape the company’s future and push others to hit their potential.

RGi was awarded a 19-month follow-on contract as a subcontractor to provide support to the US Army Corps of Engineers’ (USACE) Engineer Research & Development Center’s (ERDC) Geospatial Research Laboratory (GRL) under the Geospatial Research, Integration, Development and Support (GRIDS II) IDIQ contract.
RGi’s primary objective within this support task is to provide geospatial systems engineering expertise, architecture, agile prototyping, software development and integration. The outcomes will be demonstrated to evaluate military utility of these research and development initiatives and tested for potential transition to select Army Programs of Record (PORs).
RGi has joined together with Food for Others to host its first Power Pack Program (P3) volunteer event to provide elementary school children with a food pack for the weekend.
The P3 program is designed to provide food to young students in our community who may be at risk of hunger between school meals. RGi provided the food, while RGi volunteers packed and delivered over 150 P3 packs for students, each containing two breakfast items, two lunch items, two dinner items, two snack items, and two drinks.
RGi will host similar P3 events every six weeks, with the goal of 2,700 P3 packs in 2017.
Thanks to all of our RGi-ers for getting involved!
RGi CEO, Stephen Gillotte, was recently interviewed for an Organizational Member Spotlight in Trajectory, the Official Magazine of the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF).
In his Q&A, Steve discusses how he designed RGi (Reinventing Geospatial Inc.) to be a bold statement to drive the GEOINT Community to do better, as well as how RGi has found a sweet spot by encouraging the natural creativity of its engineers while keeping focused on the very real issues facing its defense and intelligence customers.

RGi was awarded a Special Operations Command (SOCOM) Small Business Innovation and Research (SBIR) Phase I project in response to Topic 163-005: Cloud Data Synchronization with Limited Bandwidth Communications. Throughout this effort, RGi will explore the feasibility of applying the underlying concepts of its SmartContent approach in austere situations, where disconnected, limited, or intermittent (DIL) communications constrain the networked environment, imposing significant barriers to rapid transmission of valuable data and knowledge from managed cloud resources. RGi will research an intelligent, automated solution that can integrate with existing applications to provide the basis for asserting the operational relevance of data and content, determine where it should be prepositioned, provisioned, and cached for maximum availability to those who need it, and enable new knowledge collected in the field or through reach-back analytics to be efficiently and opportunistically synchronized with distributed network resources.
RGi is part of the winning team that was awarded the Better Buying Support Services (B2S2) IDIQ contract to provide the US Army Program Executive Office (PEO) Intelligence Electronic Warfare and Sensors (IEW&S) and their portfolio of Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) programs with technical, program, operations, logistics, and engineering services in support of their current and evolving mission. RGi’s role will be to provide engineering services to improve and evolve how intelligence and sensor data is analyzed, disseminated, and visualized across the battlespace.
RGi will participate in the Medical Informatics Decision Assistance and Support (MIDAS) project, a SBIR Phase II contract funded by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) that will provide tools to generate recommendations for reducing the risk of musculoskeletal injury obtained during physical training. MIDAS will incorporate sensor data (e.g., wearable fitness trackers) collected during training, contextual knowledge (e.g., training plans, user biometrics, unit constraints), and machine learning to evaluate a trainee’s current state, assert a risk of injury score, and recommend mitigations that the individual and/or trainers can use to reduce the likelihood of injury. Throughout this project, RGi will provide support through use case development, technical implementation recommendations, and outreach to physical trainers and other stakeholders. This work will be performed under contract N68335-17-C-0044.
