New Zealand Forensic Imagery Company undertakes a task of biblical proportions?

Global Intelligence Solutions Ltd a New Zealand based company has been invited by Professor Taylor from the USA to be part of a team of experts to analyse imagery that may indicate the presence of an anomaly that could turn out to be, Noah’s Ark!

Rod McCourt, Director of Global Intelligence Solutions, was approached in January 2008 by Professor Porcher Taylor III from Richmond University, USA and specifically tasked with analysing the anomaly on Mt Ararat in Turkey for any potential nautical features.

Experts have been aware of the anomaly for a number of years but, due to its remote location and Turkish Government restrictions, it has been difficult to examine the area on the ground. Newly released satellite imagery was made available to Rod to undertake his in-depth analysis.

“I’m deeply indebted to Rod McCourt and Global Intelligence Solutions for adeptly applying their world-class imagery analysis skills to help determine whether the Ararat Anomaly, an ice-bound geospatial mystery, might be the remains of a man-made structure.” Said Professor Taylor.

Global Intelligence Solutions, focuses on the worldwide provision of Intelligence Consultancy, Analysis and Training for the Defence, Security, and Law Enforcement Communities. Offering sophisticated forensic imagery analysis services, Global Intelligence Solutions has recently expanded to include clients in Australia.
