Serving Up AEG at SAME JETC

Woolpert will be out in force, hosting multiple sessions and sharing integrated services, advanced technologies at Booth 325.

TAMPA, Fla. (May 6, 2019) — The 2019 Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Joint Engineer Training Conference & Expo (JETC) kicks off Tuesday and will continue through Thursday in Tampa, Fla. Woolpert will have a dozen architects, engineers, geospatial (AEG) directors and strategic consultants at the annual conference to discuss a variety of integrated services and advanced technologies that cross multiple markets to comprehensively support the AEG needs of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Woolpert staff will be out and about, with industry experts at Booth 325 (raffling off a YETI Hopper Flip 8 portable cooler), and speaking at or moderating impactful sessions on each day of the conference:

  • On Tuesday, Engineer Project Manager and Research and Development Facilitator Nadja Turek, who leads Woolpert’s sustainable design efforts, will moderate the “Installation Energy and Water Plans: A DoD and Industry Panel” from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Speakers for this session are U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Research Engineer Matthew Swanson of the Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), USACE Military Energy Planner Jill Schueckler and Kathleen Richardson, Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Air Force for Installations, Environment and Energy. The session will explain how to apply the latest energy and water planning policy, as well as the ramifications of recent changes.
  • On Wednesday, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., Woolpert Director of Federal Business Development Dennis Ellington will present a session on “Using FPDS Ad-Hoc Query and Excel to Improve Market Intelligence.” This session will focus on how to use the more powerful “ad hoc” query/reporting capability available in Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS) and how to export and analyze FPDS data using Microsoft Excel’s “pivot table” functionality.
  • Thursday, Woolpert Geospatial Information and Services Strategic Consultant Brian Cullis will discuss “Mobilizing Geospatial Technologies for USAF Combat Support,” from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. This session will describe how the U.S. Air Force is building upon geospatial engineering foundations and leveraging institutional processes to reduce risk to mission and forces across the broader combat mission teams.
