For more than a decade, Critigen has been providing both program and technical support to U.S. Navy (Navy) clients . Support has included environmental data management and analysis, GIS for munitions response and remediation, as well as comprehensive GIS support for the Navy GeoReadiness Program. Critigen is supporting GIS program management activities at the headquarters level, performing above- and below-ground SDSFIE-compliant utility surveys at several Navy bases, and mapping installations in Bahrain, Spain, and Italy to support U.S. Navy operations in Europe and the Middle East. Critigen is also developing Navy GIS data standards, program and communication strategies, technical guidance, and training solutions.
At the headquarters level, Critigen is collecting business requirements, developing a strategy and business model, assisting with community development, establishing performance metrics, organizing guidance and policies, and implementing SDSFIE 3.0 and metadata standards to build, provide, sustain, and advance GIS capabilities to support Navy missions.
Critigen can meet the data management needs around munitions site activities through use of GPS mobile devices. These devices provide seamless data synchronization from field to the office, analysis and reporting from a centralized database, and data visualization through a web-based GIS.
Environmental Data Management
The Critigen Environmental Data Management (EDM) group coordinates data management efforts for various Navy programs, including CLEAN. Primary services include EDM lifecycle tasks such as routines, processes, and guidelines for sample tracking, storage, access, and delivery. Additional services include reporting of chemical analytical, geologic, biologic and spatial data generated during site characterizations, remedial investigations, and remedial action activities.
Strategic Planning & Enterprise Architecture
Through the GeoReadiness Program, Critigen is assisting the U.S. Navy in developing a GeoReadiness Strategic Plan and Enterprise Architecture. Support tasks include collecting, analyzing, and prioritizing mission requirements, analyzing current efforts to centralize GeoReadiness services to a single hosting center, and establishing the authoritative adaptation of the SDSFIE 3.0 and DISDI metadata model for all Navy installations. Critigen also advises NAVFAC in policy development and guidance for meeting defined quality assurance and QASP standards.
Critigen has developed a number of solutions for the CLEAN Program, covering a wide range of technologies, including mobile devices, desktop tools and web applications, to support environmental data management and munitions response.
