Visone is Chief of the AGC’s Geospatial Acquisition Support Directorate and is responsible for the synchronization of Geospatial Enterprise policies, priorities, programs, production requirements, strategies, and technologies across the Army Acquisition community. His directorate also ensures the efficient integration of geospatial information and services technologies in weapon systems acquisition.
As Chief of the center’s Tactical Source Branch, Hardaway manages and executes end-to-end support of high-resolution geospatial information and intelligence in support of immediate warfighter operations, Quick Response Capabilities, demonstrations, and prototyping for the Army, DOD, and other government agencies.
The de Fleury Medal was established during the early years of the Army Corps of Engineers to honor individuals who provided significant contributions to Army engineering. It is named for French engineer Francois Louis Tesseidre de Fleury, who volunteered to fight with the American Army in the Revolutionary War. For his bravery and courage under fire in the Battle of Stony Point, NY, the Continental Congress awarded a medal struck in his honor on Oct. 1, 1779.
