Woolpert has secured a one-year, $4.7 millionÂ contract from the U.S. Air Force to help the service branch manage itsÂ geospatial information library across a number of installations within five USAFÂ commands.
The company said FridayÂ it will provide geospatial services to theÂ Air Combat Command,Â Air Education and Training Command,Â Air Force District of Washington,Â Air Force Special Operations Command andÂ Air Force Space Command.
This contract increases Woolpert’s enterprise geospatial services portfolioÂ the company callsÂ “GeoBase”Â within the Air Force to more than two-thirds of USAF installations around the country.
GeoBase’s goal is to help the Air Force achieve a geospatial setup that requires only one installation and one mapÂ fromÂ deployment onward.
Woolpert has assembledÂ a team of at leastÂ 12 newÂ staff membersÂ such as retired Air Force Col. Brian Cullis, who the company says has advocated for the military to use enterprise-wide geospatial information programs since the 1990s.
Cullis also created a dissertation that initiated Woolpert’s GeoBase geospatial portfolio.
Air Force Special Operations Command will administer the contract with funds providedÂ by the Air Force Civil Engineer Center.
