Hexagon recently announced the acquisition of Thermopylae Sciences and Technology, a merger designed to propel both companies beyond their strongest markets and enhance the vision of a smarter digital reality for their customers.
HxGN Radio recently sat down with Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon’s Geospatial Division; Tammer Olibah, President and CEO of Hexagon’s U.S. Federal Division; and AJ Clark, President of Thermopylae Sciences and Technology to discuss the recent acquisition of Thermopylae Sciences and Technology and how the synergy between these companies will help create a bridge between the geospatial and the operational worlds.
Thermopylae Sciences and Technology was founded in 2007 by AJ Clark and a team of seasoned executives with strong federal contracting backgrounds. Together, they created a company built on hard work, innovation, and a desire to change how the U.S. Government puts technology to work.
According to Clark, the company initially focused on the federal space but really wanted to offer some of their complex geosystems and software to everyday users, intelligence analysts, and operators. They saw tools like Google Maps and Google Earth as common denominators that hundreds of millions of users were able to identify with and implement in their day-to-day lives.
Hexagon took interest in Thermopylae due to its strong presence in the U.S. market. Melding Hexagon with Thermopylae expands Hexagon’s footprint in the U.S. while leveraging the work and relationships the Thermopylae team has developed over the years. The new combined effort will bring the companies closer to realizing the elements of the 5D strategy with innovative solutions. Hexagon hopes to extend Thermopylae’s presence beyond the U.S. market.
