FAA Selects MarkLogic to Operate its Emergency Response System

The Federal Aviation Administration has selected MarkLogic Corp. to operate its emergency operations network, which FAA uses to monitor and track severe weather and emergencies.

“The organization required a technology solution that was capable of taking multiple document types and feeds and making sense of the information,” said Randall Jackson, vice president of MarkLogic’s public sector operations.  “MarkLogic was able to meet this criterion in a single product, offering full text and faceted search, a schema-agnostic structure and a geospatial display through Google Maps.”

The program plays a significant role in coordinating emergency response and tracking natural and man-made disasters.
