WASHINGTON, D.C.–Sen. Harry Reid today met with SpecTIR President Mark Landers and SpecTIR Vice President of International Operations Conrad Wright to discuss the organization’s involvement in the Gulf Coast oil spill cleanup.
Based out of Reno, SpecTIR LLC designs, develops and operates remote sensors and Geospatial Information Systems for the Defense Department, federal and state agencies and the private sector. The company’s advanced image mapping technology records incredibly detailed spatial information and is currently being used to monitor environmental conditions in the Gulf of Mexico.
“I am proud to have Nevadans on the front lines of the Deepwater Horizon/BP oil spill cleanup,” said Reid. “The situation in the Gulf is tragic; I am hopeful that putting SpecTIR’s technology to work will help expedite the cleanup process and minimize environmental impacts to the Gulf Coast’s wetlands and coastal areas.”
