Our Darpa CPOF (Command Post Of the Future) project requires geometric
reasoning to compute battlefield targeting. Thus we have incorporated
vocabulary to represent this specific domain, and can interface with
geometric (geo-spatial) reasoners supplied by other project participants.

You are correct in that we have a significant portion of Cycorp involved
with NLP as compared to geo-spatial reasoning.
