"The marketing agreement with EMT enables SAIC to expand our technology offerings, enhance our human geography offerings and develop integrated solutions to meet our customer's missions."
Access to real-time data and ability to harness crowdsourced information can greatly increase situational awareness and reduce acquisition cost. EMT’s core technology and patent-pending NAVDEX™ platform provides a robust and elegant solution designed to expedite the rapid deployment of crowdsourced content to a global audience through a cloud-based digital management system. NAVDEX™ organizes crowd-generated content utilizing myriad metadata parameters. Using its free mobile application StringFly (for iPhone and Android), EMT creates a potential global army of citizen contributors capable of immediate distribution of content to interested organizations worldwide.
