HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Last week, the Alabama Space Authority, led by State Senator Gerald Dial (R-Lineville), was pleased to hear a presentation by Radiant Solutions, a geospatial analytics firm that is interested in the Huntsville area. The June 2nd meeting was attended by Radiant Solutions President Tony Frazier and Vice President and General Counsel Mike Gold.
The Radiant Solutions team described what makes Alabama attractive for aerospace companies and the potential for creating hundreds of jobs in the growing field of geospatial analytics.
“Our combined team of over 1,100 aerospace engineers, geospatial analysts, weather and ocean experts, software developers, data scientists, and DevOps engineers apply disruptive technology and our unique intellectual property to solve problems for a broad array of national security and commercial customers,” Frazier said. “As the home to the Missile Defense Agency, the Army Space and Missile Defense Command, NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, and the FBI’s Terrorist Explosive Device Analytical Center at Redstone Arsenal, the Huntsville area represents potential for growth in the application of cutting edge innovation to solve some of the toughest problems facing our world.”
Senator Dial was optimistic about the potential for Radiant Solutions to partner with Alabama and the Huntsville region.
“This is testament to the quality of the workforce of our state and Huntsville’s strong presence in this industry. Tony Frazier and the team at Radiant Solutions have been supportive and a great resource for us at the Space Authority in better understanding the needs of civil and commercial spaceport vendors,” said Dial, who is Chairman of the Alabama Space Authority. “We hope to grow this business sector with Radiant Solutions, and this is just the first of many companies in this field that the Alabama Space Authority could attract.”
Gerald Dial represents District 13 in the Alabama State Senate, which includes all or parts of Chambers, Cherokee, Clay, Cleburne, Lee, and Randolph counties. He is the immediate past chairman of the Senate’s Health and Human Services committee.
