HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – For the third time, AEgis Technologies has a role in the Olympics, although it doesn’t involve a gold, silver or bronze medal.

It’s a prestigious task, though.  The company has built a 3D high-resolution database of sites in London, the home of the 2012 Games. 

The images and models have been used in preparation for the games, including operational planning and situational awareness. They will also be used during the Games.

AEgis Technologies also handled similar projects for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics and Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.

“AEgis is proud to continue our support of the Olympic Games by providing our geospatial solutions to this global event,” said David King, VP of Simulation Development.  “We look forward to the excitement of the London Olympics and are pleased to have again been selected for this project.”

AEgis’ corporate headquarters are in Huntsville.  The company also has offices in six other U.S. cities and personnel at four U.S. military bases.
