2nd GEOINT and Open Source Analytics Summit
September 19th, 2017 to September 20th, 2017
|LOCATION:||The Mary M. Gates Learning Center, Alexandria, VA (map)|
|DESCRIPTION:||Defense Strategies Institute's GEOINT and Open Source Analytics Summit allows US military commands, government agencies, academia, and technology providers the opportunity to have an in-depth conversation about the future of open-source technologies in the GEOINT landscape. The Summit seeks to find solutions to the challenges promoted by the integration of open-source geospatial imagery with classified sources in order to provide the IC with the highest quality GEOINT data available.
The summit will provide a forum to address and improve internal and external initiatives, meet with and hear from partner organizations, disseminate vital capability requirements to industry, increase visibility within the larger community, and generally support their mission. This educational summit enables the Intelligence Community, military intelligence organizations and the private sector to come together to address the latest efforts to improve the quality, availability, and analysis of geospatial and open source intelligence.
Open and commercially sourced data have proven their value and intelligence agencies are moving quickly to take advantage of new imagery sources. The challenge is integrating this information into existing streams and exploiting it in an effective and timely manner. Establishing a strategy and framework for the collection and analysis of this diverse set of data streams will be a key priority for the IC.
This summit will feature senior level discussions on the latest efforts by government agencies and organizations to utilize geospatial and open source data to support a wide variety of mission sets. The applications of this data are many and this year's summit will seek to highlight efforts towards the accomplishment of wide-ranging IC goals.
The agenda sessions are designed to allow for ample networking opportunities and the ability to engage in constructive dialogue among all in attendance.
