In September, the NCOIC delivered the Geospatial Community Cloud (GCC) demonstration. Sponsored by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, this demonstration showed how an interoperable, hybrid-cloud operating environment can be quickly enabled and used as a rapid response capability.While this demonstration was designed around lessons learned in the 2010 Haitian Earthquake, the effort showed how a cloud services brokerage approach could be used to quickly provide critical information technology infrastructure support to an unplanned event.
The NCOIC is an international organization for accelerating the global
implementation of network centric principles and systems--to improve
information sharing among various communities of interest for the
betterment of their productivity, interactivity, safety, and security.
The NCOIC Rapid Response Capability (NRRC) video series supports that
mission by broadly disseminating information about the GCC demonstration
for the good of the global community.
Major General Eric W. Vollmecke currently serves as the Air National Guard Assistant
to the Commander, United States Air Forces in Europe/Africa, Ramstein
Air Base and Germany. He leads the deployment and integration of
reserve forces to support both wartime planning and direct support to
ongoing operations throughout both theaters. General Vollmecke also directs the ANG
support to the State Partnership Program and was the program director of the NCOIC Geospatial Community Cloud
Concept Demonstration. During the 2010 Haiti operations, he commanded two airlift wings and a manned ISR flying detachment that were in direct support of the operations, and one of his bases served a major staging area for U.S. Government response located just outside of Washington, D.C.
