Approval of Secure Facility
Athens, AL (February 10, 2021) — Optimal GEO Inc. has been granted authorization by the Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) to operate our secured facility, located at the company headquarters in downtown Athens, Alabama. This accreditation allows Optimal GEO to further our production portfolio to classified work such as the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency’s (NGA’s) High Resolution Terrain Elevation (HRTE), Littoral Planning Chart (LPC), and Tactical Ocean Data (TOD) products. While Optimal GEO employees have long supported our partners in producing such classified products, this expansion will allow for multiple in-house teams to process secured data around the clock.
“This is an exciting step for Optimal GEO and shows our commitment to the GEOINT community. The quality of our work is already well known in the industry and this allows us to expand our production capabilities for federal agencies and partners,” said John Merritt, Vice President of Programs at Optimal GEO. The SECRET-level facility, which is outfitted with the latest software and equipment, will be up and running within a matter of weeks.
