Colorado-based consultant Scott Gelbard helps companies in the United States figure out how to reach international markets and assists international companies looking for business model analysis. Scott F. Gelbard also helps Terra Ferma, Inc., manage its day-to-day operations.
Since its inception in 2009, Terra Ferma has pursued three main avenues of business: public safety and emergency management, commercial interests, and military communications. It has found success in all three areas.
In the defense sector, Terra Ferma has netted several supply contracts with the U.S. government. It has an ongoing arrangement to provide commercial-off-the-shelf equipment and support services to the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic. Its contracts, which are indefinite in terms of quantity and delivery but involve a firm fixed price, could earn the company up to $1 billion over a five-year time period.
Terra Ferma has also found success in public safety. The company has signed an agreement to make it the preferred tactical communications equipment and services provider for numerous federal agencies, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Homeland Security.
