Defense and Force Health Protection
To protect the health of your defense forces in the field and at their bases, you must quickly visualize, analyze, and understand emerging situations. Your ability to make these decisions impacts the mission readiness and safety of service members.
Warfighters, logisticians, and defense health providers all depend on location-based information. GIS can help defense and intelligence organizations visualize occupational and environmental hazards; track evacuees, casualties, and high-value medical equipment; and perform disease surveillance and epidemiology research.
These stories show how defense and intelligence organizations use GIS for defense and force health protection.
