Executive Mosaic is honored to introduce Tony Frazier, president of Radiant Solutions, as an inductee into the 2018 edition of the Wash100 — Executive Mosaic’s annual selection of influential leaders in the government contracting arena–for his leadership in improving space-based intelligence and encouraging innovations within the geospatial industry.
Radiant Solutions is one the four business units of Maxar Technologies that was formed in October 2017 after MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates closed its approximately $3.6 billion acquisition of DigitalGlobe.
In an interview with ExecutiveBiz, Frazier discussed the positioning of the company as Maxar’s geospatial services business.
“We are well-positioned to create a disruptive force in space-based intelligence,” he said. “No company has such strong roots in geospatial with our level of scale and a strong commercial mindset.”
He also noted about the company’s aim to help clients leverage the potential of cloud computing, big data analytics, machine learning, sensors and other emerging technologies to support their global mapping and intelligence missions.
In November 2017, Radiant Solutions combined its geospatial services brands – DigitalGlobe Intelligence Solutions, RadiantBlue, MDA Information Systems and HumanGeo – as part of a strategy to help clients address national security challenges.
In a recent interview, the three-time Wash100 inductee mentioned that one of the trends he sees in the remote-sensing area is the ability to leverage big data analytics, machine learning and other technologies to glean insights from gathered data.
“Applying artificial intelligence, machine learning, and big data analytics are the enablers that will help our community ride this tidal wave of data to move the needle for the mission.”
DigitalGlobe announced in August 2017 the winning algorithms in the second round of the SpaceNet Challenge – a competition that seeks to accelerate machine learning innovation and the company’s collaborative effort with CosmiQ Works and Nvidia.
“The results from round two show developers are harnessing machine learning and high-resolution training data to achieve outcomes that indicate automation could be used in the near future to support broader geospatial analytics,” Frazier noted then.
Those efforts include DigitalGlobe’s SpaceNet online satellite imagery repository and Geospatial Big Data platform that work to help GEOINT analysts generate insights from large data sets.
Frazier previously served as a senior vice president at DigitalGlobe|Radiant, which was established after DigitalGlobe acquired The Radiant Group in 2016.
Prior to Frazier’s role as SVP of DigitalGlobe’s government solutions business, he held positions at tech companies such as Cisco and Infor Global Solutions.
