Maj. Gen. Raymund E. O'Mara, U.S. Air Force

As director of the Defense Mapping Agency from 1993 to 1994, Maj. Gen. Raymund O’Mara moved forward with the implementation of the Global Geospatial Information System, which was made directly accessible to combat commanders of the Rapid Deployment Forces. The GGIS was a major paradigm shift in warfare with the delivery of geographic information to fast-moving military forces.

O’Mara also initiated the agency’s reinvention task force, which transformed DMA from a map-provider to a timely source of geospatial information and services. He retired on December 1, 1994.
