Optensity & Rosoka Software named winners of Engility’s IGAPP Grand Challenge
At GEOINT 2017, Engility named Optensity and Rosoka Software winners of the company’s annual IGAPP Grand Challenge for the GlobeNewsReader app. GlobeNewsReader allows users to quickly peruse hundreds of global news sources and articles by geo-locating them on a map.
“By allowing users to filter news content by geographic location, GlobeNewsReader provides assistance to Department of Defense analysts who wish to focus on information that is specific to their area of responsibility,” said Amanda Brownfield, senior vice president of Engility’s Intelligence Solutions Group.
The IGAPP contract vehicle bridges the gap between the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and private sector app developers interested in creating meaningful and effective solutions for NGA’s local, state and federal customers. The IGAPP Grand Challenge is an annual contest in which app developers create an application addressing a DoD need.
Engility and Rosoka were awarded $25,000 and their app is now available on the
GEOINT App Store.
