135 Geographic Squadron Open Day
— News release: 29th June 2017
135 Geographic Squadron, Royal Engineers, is an Army Reservist Unit (part time soldiers) that produce and supply geospatial support to the Armed Forces. We have a number of roles: Geospatial Information Dissemination (GID), survey, geospatial analysis/advice and bulk reproduction of mapping.
The Sqn recently supported operations in Afghanistan and continues to provide geo support to the Army, Defence and wider Government, and the multi-national Allied Rapid Reaction Corps (ARRC), in support of the NATO Reaction Force for 2017.
We are holding a CPD/Open Day on 15 July, between 1300-1600 to demonstrate our capability and equipment. We are keen to extend an invite to you to learn about Army Geo and how we operate our mobile capability from the back of a lorry. Who knows you might want to join yourself! We are located in Ewell, near Epsom. KT17 2BG if you wish to find us using your SatNav.
