Hexagon US Federal expands its geospatial software portfolio with Thermopylae Sciences and Technology

28 February 2019

Chantilly, VA - Thermopylae Sciences and Technology, a software provider primarily focused on the U.S. government and defense market that specializes in geospatial applications, mobile frameworks, and cloud computing for enhanced location intelligence, was recently acquired by its parent company, Hexagon AB.

Thermopylae has developed advanced visualization solutions to support tactical edge mapping in support of mission critical operations. Its defense and intelligence solutions integrate the Google technology stack and are targeted at addressing the challenges involved in working with critical problem sets in secure or classified government environments. Founded in 2007 and led by a team of seasoned executives with strong federal contracting backgrounds, Thermopylae continues to grow within the U.S. government marketplace while also advancing into the private sector.

“Thermopylae’s culture of innovation and emphasis on user-focused, collaborative solutions to solve complex problems closely aligns with our own strategic goals,” said Hexagon US Federal CEO, Tammer Olibah. “The integration of Google technology along with our own software portfolios will support implementation of the 5D dynamic analytics experience in the federal market.”

Lt. Gen. Michael D. Maples (Ret.), chairman of the board, further explained, “The combination of Hexagon’s content, sensors, and ability to create Autonomous Connected Ecosystems with Thermopylae’s hardware, software, and technical expertise, will produce powerful location intelligence capabilities for Hexagon US Federal customers. Particularly exciting is the opportunity to achieve a convergence of the physical and digital worlds to enable those who serve at the tactical edge.”

Headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, Thermopylae will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Hexagon AB. The formal acquisition closing date is expected in the upcoming months.
