The Army Geospatial Center was organized as a Field Operating Activity under the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on Oct. 1, 2009 to support the Army's LandWarNet/Battle Command. The Center provides a decisive advantage to ground forces.
The Army Geospatial Enterprise: Collect Once, Share with All
The AGC's goal is to enable an Army Geospatial Enterprise. At it's core, the enterprise is designed to deliver a Standard and Sharable Geospatial Foundation (SSGF) at all echelons.
Geospatial Expertise for Today's Warfighter
The AGC employs a knowledgeable staff of Department of Defense civilians, contractors and esteemed senior military leaders who support three program areas:
Warfighter Support: Provides geospatial engineering support to Army forces, which is tailored to mission requirements and mission command systems.
Systems Acquisition and Support: Synchronizes geospatial enterprise policies across the Army acquisition community; and manages technology integration and prototyping to ensure the efficient integration of Geospatial Information and Services (GI&S) technologies within the Army Geospatial Enterprise.
Geospatial Research Laboratory: Provides ground forces with knowledge of the battefield through innovative basic and applied research in geospatial and related sciences by conducting research and development of geospatial technologies that will help characterize and measure phenomena within physical and social environments.
