The Geospatial Information Interoperability Exploitation - Portable (GIIEP) system is a man-portable, multi-band receiver capable of ingesting a variety of visual and textual data which will enhance CAP's ability to respond to disaster situations and provide annotated and compressed imagery products (both still and video) that can be quickly disseminated to mission partners. The inherent flexibility of the system allows operators to tailor their efforts to take maximum advantage of available assets and available communications as they support disaster response operations.
GIIEP is an unclassified system developed by the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command and when fully operational, all GIIEP products can be accessible via the internet. Each state and territory National Guard has received two “Go Kits” along with one Remotely Operated Video Enhanced Receiver (ROVER) 4 receive unit and one ROVER 5 transmit/receive unit, and CAP received 5 GIIEP kits in February of 2011 without ROVER for deployment from CAP National Headquarters as government furnished equipment from AFNORTH. These kits are being managed by NHQ/DO, and training and deployment for mission purposes began in March of 2011 for field personnel based on AFNORTH's priorities.
Additional information on GIIEP is provided below. As more is available and developed we will post it here.
