NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Completes Install of SharedGeo’s Emergency Location Marker System
During deliberations in 2018, NASA’s Office of the Chief Technologist, Innovation Without Boundaries panel selected SharedGeo’s Emergency Location Marker (ELM) system for install on the nation’s space center. In an effort led by Al Studt who serves as the Lead Fire Suppression & Protective Systems Engineer at Kennedy Space Center and as a Lieutenant with the Cape Canaveral Fire Department, SharedGeo worked closely with Kennedy Space Center personnel to develop and deliver ELM’s and informational signs which support the unique needs of this iconic American location visited by more than one million individuals each year. In addition to placement on Kennedy Space Center proper, ELM’s were also installed on the adjoining U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s Merritt Island Refuge and the Canaveral National Seashore.
