If you attended DistribuTECH 2019 and joined any of the “defending the grid” sessions, you saw that intense focus continues in all things cybersecurity. It seems everyone realizes cybersecurity has rapidly become one of the greatest operational risk to a utility. Due to the extreme technical nature of threats and preventative measures, if you are not a cybersecurity expert these can be very difficult to discuss, let alone understand.

As the GEOINT Community expands beyond traditional defense and intelligence arenas, so do innovations that marry geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) technology with the Internet of Things (IoT) and cybersecurity to create smart cities and smart military bases.

One of the biggest challenges facing the construction of pipeline projects is that they operate in a dynamic, complex environment where external bottlenecks and stakeholders can introduce excessive delays and costs.
To meet those changes, contractors and pipeline managers are increasingly being asked for data to support regulatory compliance, cost management, safety and maintenance objectives — the meat and potatoes of the industry.

In years past, adding new capabilities to extend defense and intelligence platforms has seemed like a monolithic quest to rebuild the platform itself—as if with every new requirement came the need to reinvent the wheel. Compounded by slow-moving federal procurement systems, adaptability of critical platforms moved at a glacial pace, especially as the platform’s popularity and operational value grew.

Broader smart city functions could come later, but the clever, cost-saving LED lights will at first stick closer to illumination purposes.Broader smart city functions could come later, but the clever, cost-saving LED lights will at first stick closer to illumination purposes.
In another reminder that there's “smart” and then there's “really smart,” the large town of Richmond Hill, Ontario, has replaced conventional street lights with smart, Internet-connected LED luminaires that have slashed energy and maintenance costs, but where the really smart stuff is yet to come.

The hurricane season has never been as devastating and widespread, with storm-driven power outages challenging utilities in ways difficult to imagine before Harvey struck Texas, Irma hit the Caribbean and Florida, and Maria destroyed Puerto Rico's electric grid, leaving all of its 3.4 million residents without power.

The sea service needs to develop a sustainable solution rather than relying on the NGA.
The U.S. Navy has outsourced geospatial intelligence at sea, delaying its investment in a solution to this core intelligence competency for the afloat commander. The service needs to train its analysts to produce geospatial intelligence and acquire software and hardware for them. A cost-effective systems solution exists, but the lack of commitment to geospatial intelligence holds the Navy back.
