Concurrent Technologies Corporation Innovations Aid in Deployment and Natural Disaster Relief Efforts

Concurrent Technologies Corporation’s (CTC’s) Sensitive Web Accessible Network (SWAN) team has received a National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) Enterprise Mission Achievement Award for providing mission-critical support to NGA deployed personnel and those supporting natural disaster relief efforts in Haiti, the California Wildfires, and the Gulf Oil Spill.

 The team was recognized for its extreme tenacity and professionalism in all aspects of helpdesk support, system maintenance, and engineering support in an operationally challenging environment.  CTC developed and fielded the SWAN Secure Remote Access (SRA) to allow users to connect to a wide array of unclassified network resources independent of location.  SWAN SRA is a fully accredited system providing access to mission deployed users, first responders providing disaster relief, traveling users, and users working from home.

 “NGA’s mission is ‘Know the Earth…Show the Way…Understand the World,’ and CTC and the SWAN team have been relentless in our pursuit to help NGA achieve this mission,” said Mr. Gregory Hoffman, CTC’s SRA Solutions Director and SWAN project manager.  “First responders and deployed personnel are able to get vital geospatial information from their network easily through the use of SWAN.  Our goal is to enable those front-line personnel closest to the mission to access the essential tools they need to do their jobs, and this recognition is further evidence that we are achieving this goal and becoming fully integrated with the NGA team.  The SWAN team is proud to have received as high an honor as the NGA Enterprise Mission Achievement Award.”
