HANCOCK COUNTY — Geocent has been selected to provide Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO) the ability to display its forecasted ocean weather data and observations of current ocean weather data on a geospatial map so that it can be viewed on tools such as Google Earth and other Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) based map viewers.
The Navy’s Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP ), Commander, Naval Meteorology & Oceanography Command (CNMOC ) and NAVOCEANO awarded Geocent the Phase III Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) competitive contract. The contract award was based on Geocent’s previous Open Source Common Operational Picture (OpenCOP) SBIR, which provides plug-ins and enhancements needed to serve Network Common Data Form (NetCDF) data as Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) services.
“Geocent is excited to be able to leverage technology we developed under the SBIR program to support our CNMOC customer. This is a great example of how the SBIR program can spawn innovations that can be put into real use to save the government money,” said Geocent’s chief technology officer Keith Alphonso.
