Director Long and NGA to attend 10th annual GEOINT Symposium

April 11, 2014

SPRINGFIELD, Va. — The director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency is scheduled to deliver a keynote speech April 15 at 9:45 a.m. at the Tampa Convention Center during the U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation's GEOINT 2013* Symposium, which runs April 14-17 in Tampa.

Letitia A. Long’s speech, titled “Driving the Next Phase of Intelligence,” will highlight how NGA is building a platform for integration that will create a new, immersive experience across the intelligence and defense communities that allows our nation to know what we should know, see what our adversaries cannot, and act first.

Other NGA experts will also participate in presentations and panel discussions throughout the weeklong symposium. Agency subject matter experts will discuss topics such as research and technology, open IT, the Map of the World, activity based intelligence, and small business opportunities in defense and intelligence.

The exhibit hall opens at 2 p.m. April 15 and closes at 6 p.m. April 17.
