In August 2015, USTRANSCOM awarded the new Transportation Geospatial Information System (TGIS) contract to GeoDecisions. The goal of TGIS is to integrate IRRIS’ DTTS and DCD capabilities into an open GIS services framework that will provide USTRANSCOM with a user-defined operational picture (UDOP) capability. The timeline for TGIS deployment is February 2017. We are approximately 75 percent complete with new system development, and have begun to integrate DTTS and DCD functions into the baseline. Set for November 2016, the next beta delivery of TGIS will allow DTTS users to test command-and-control functionality in a non-operational government environment and lay the groundwork for a seamless system operational transition in February.Read More

Whether it is the transport of cargo, hazardous materials, or personnel, the ability to effectively manage logistics and transportation security is critical. In today’s data-rich environment, the challenge is finding an automated, user-friendly information platform that can integrate available data and technical applications together in a common operating picture (COP).Read More
