SAIC | December 02, 2020
Science Applications International Corp. will show its driving preparing and reenactment arrangements, including an engineered experiential set-up of programming, adaptable intuitive models with procedural guidance, and another microlearning stage brought in-SITE, during the 2020 Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC), the world's biggest demonstrating, reproduction and preparing occasion. SAIC's answers carry creative preparing innovation to help secure America's warfighters and modernize the U.S. government, in any event, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“SAIC has a long history of delivering leading agile, integrated training solutions to prepare our customers for any situation, ensuring optimal performance,” said Bob Kleinhample, SAIC training and mission solutions vice president and I/ITSEC 2020 conference chair. “Our solutions use modern technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, cloud, 3D printing, and more to bring the latest innovations to federal government agencies. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have tailored these solutions to respond to our customers’ unique remote training challenges with great success.”
As conference seat, Kleinhample will likewise convey comments during the initial services on innovation patterns to be seen at I/ITSEC.
Since 2018, SAIC has worked with the U.S. Flying corps to reform the manner in which it trains pilots by sending business off–the-rack (COTS) test systems and computer generated reality to graduate more pilots every year. As a component of the Pilot Training Next program, understudies use work area size test systems for simple admittance to a vivid reenactment climate, engaging them to direct preparing on their own timetables. Subsequently, pilots are prepared for live guidance in about a fraction of the time.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, numerous pilots needed to self-isolate and social distance to guarantee their security, yet the basic requirement for pilot preparing has remained. SAIC's group immediately rotated and amassed an answer in pilots' apartments to guarantee they complete their required flight-time preparing. At present, notwithstanding the pandemic interruption, students finished 96% of their arranged learning and trips through the pandemic.
Moreover, SAIC has finished preparing for in excess of 1,000 U.S. Armed force National Guard military insight sentries during the pandemic to help them with required preparing and to guarantee they hold similar norms as their deployment ready partners. Utilizing SAIC's Military Intelligence (MI) Gym, SAIC's plan tends to the National Guard's difficulties by furnishing preparing anyplace and whenever with cross usefulness, flexibility, and moderateness. Despite the fact that watchmen couldn't gather for drill obligation because of the pandemic, almost 1,000 enrolled sentries finished preparing distantly utilizing MI Gym.
Furthermore, during the conference, SAIC CEO Nazzic Keene will convey a feature discourse on Monday, Nov. 30, during the show's initial functions, following a presentation by Kleinhample. Kleinhample and Keene will examine innovation patterns visible at I/ITSEC, and Keene will likewise talk about the effects of COVID-19 and future preparing on virtual preparing and reproduction.

Huawei | July 10, 2020
The Trump administration is set to finalize regulations this week that ban the United States government from working with contractors who use technology from five Chinese companies: Huawei, ZTE, Hikvision, Dahua and Hytera Communications, according to a Reuters report. The ban was first introduced as a provision in the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act that prevents government agencies from signing contracts with companies that use equipment, services and systems from Huawei, ZTE, Hytera, Hikvision and Dahua, or any of their subsidiaries and affiliates, citing national security concerns. Contractors were given until August 13, 2020 to comply, but immediately began voicing concerns over the ambiguity of the law.
Esri | July 13, 2021
Esri, the worldwide leader in location intelligence, said today that it gives up access to dozens of high-priority, high-demand national data layers, referred to the government users as National Geospatial Data Assets, in cooperation with federal agencies (NGDA). This development is essential for national decision-making in sectors such as infrastructure development and disaster response.
Cartographic boundary files and demographic data from the US Census Bureau are being made available, as are National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) data from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the National Inventory of Dams (NID) database, which the US Army Corps of Engineers manage.
This new set of federal maps and applications is now available via ArcGIS Online. It contains approximately 75 national geospatial datasets on dams, bridges, federal public lands, runways, rail nodes, and more updated regularly from federal sources. Those looking for this information can access it through the web; no ArcGIS user license is required. Anyone can use, distribute, and modify the data with appropriate attribution under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) license. These datasets will also be accessible as Esri REST services and Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC) API Features for interoperability. Esri will also make the NGDA datasets available via a custom explorer app on the launch page.
The commercial sector will profit from the increased availability of NGDA datasets. Big companies with assets and interests spread throughout the United States, such as major merchants and insurance companies and railroads and utilities, need data that crosses cities, states, and regions. Having high-quality national data on hand saves organizations the time and money to collect and analyze it.
Esri's effort contributes to the broader vision of the Geospatial Data Act of 2018 (GDA), which aims to enable more individuals to utilize geospatial data and remove more barriers to interoperability. This is the company's second dataset made accessible to the public this year that does not need an ArcGIS license to view. In addition, Esri published the first-ever high-resolution (10-meter) global land-cover map for 2020 in June.
The ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World offers these open data services, the world's most comprehensive collection of geographic information, including maps, applications, and data layers.
