Alexandria, VA, July 13, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- On September 19-20, senior leaders within the IC, DoD, DHS, industry and academia will convene in Alexandria, VA, for two days of off-the-record briefings and collaborative sessions at Defense Strategies Institute’s 2nd GEOINT & Open Source Analytics Summit. The dialogue will focus on this year’s theme of “Leveraging New Collection Strategies to Enhance the Nation’s GEOINT Capability.” In these open sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss technological solutions and best practices that enhance the IC's ability to process, exploit, and disseminate GEOINT and open source data.
Over the course of the two days, 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.
“We have created a summit that will bring together a variety of stakeholders in order to build out two days of dialogue and debates that tackle many of the areas involved in enhancing effective and efficient GEOINT and open source analytics capabilities amongst the DoD and Federal communities,” stated Monica Mckenzie, Senior Partner, Defense Strategies Institute.
DSI’s upcoming summit recognizes that in a field such as intelligence, where there are multiple offices, departments and industry supporters acting in tandem, it is extremely important that all involved are working towards a cohesive and holistic approach. To this end, the summit will offer over 16 diverse senior leader speakers including:
* Dr. Anthony Vinci, Director of Plans and Programs, NGA
* Dr. Joseph Fontanella, Director, US Army Geospatial Center
* John Burkert, Director, Air Force GEOINT Office, USAF
* Patricia Guitard, Deputy CIO, Senior Technical Advisor for OSINT & Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff, G-2, US Army
* Col Sean Larkin, USAF, Commander, NASIC
* Chris Rasmussen, PM, Unclassified GEOINT Pathfinder PM & Public Open Source Software Development Lead, NGA
