Our clients include Federal, State and Local governments as well as large enterprise commercial clients in the energy, natural resources, engineering and similar fields. Established in 1999, we are an Alaskan Native-owned Corporation (ANC) and Small Business Administration certified 8(a) firm. GeoNorth Information Systems is headquartered in Anchorage, Alaska, with additional offices in Fairbanks, Alaska and Vienna, Virginia (near Washington, D.C.) GeoNorth Information Systems is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Tatitlek Corporation.
In the past several years, GeoNorth Information Systems has been investing resources to establish a unique, robust and scalable infrastructure to support a wide-variety of geospatial workflow requirements. Central to this effort is the establishment of a Multi-Mission Direct Receiving Station (DRS) in order to establish a unique commercial GEOINT capability for commercial satellite imagery services on US soil. This Multi-Mission DRS (located in Fairbanks, Alaska) is the only commercial entity on US soil capable of providing the full suite of commercial imaging services (tasking, collection, processing and delivery) for the entire Airbus Defense and Space (Airbus DS) constellation, including both Electro-Optical (EO) and Synthetic Aperture Rader (SAR) sensors. The DRS is solely-owned and operated by GNIS. In addition to our strategic partnership with Airbus DS, GNIS has established relationships with several other sources for geospatial data, technology and services with the objective of offering a full-suite of data sources and capabilities that can be tailored to address a broad range of client requirements.
The GNIS team consists of several industry-veterans with decades of experience and expertise in bringing together a variety of solution components, including data, software and other critical components that the most demanding of users require to meet their mission critical needs.
