NGA appeals to industry for collaboration

“We want to partner with you to build the most effective and useful GEOINT environment of the future,” NGA Chief Operating Officer Ellen McCarthy told GEOINT Symposium attendees during the April 15 NGA Strategy and Future Vision panel.

The session kicked off more than a dozen related presentations at the first-ever Government Pavilion Stage, a new venue offering attendees an opportunity to interact with NGA representatives who are directly responsible for implementing the programs and initiatives they discussed. Among the topics addressed, was a new GEOINT Solutions Marketplace, which will be launched later this spring to allow industry innovators to post capabilities and respond to business opportunities for collaboration with the agency.  [Read more]

Director Long's message to NGA employees

This week, I am attending the 10th GEOINT Symposium in Tampa, Fla., hosted by the U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation. The symposium gives us a forum to learn from industry experts, share best practices, uncover latest developments, and share our current and future requirements with our customers and partners in industry, academia and government. In addition, the conference is invaluable to promoting GEOINT tradecraft and building a stronger community across the public and private sectors.

The conference was postponed from last fall due to the government shut down, and, as you well know, we continue to operate in an austere budget climate. As a result, our participation in the symposium has been scaled back from previous years. Rather than hosting an extensive booth space, this year we are exhibiting in a shared government pavilion along with NSA, NRO and CIA. In addition to enabling cost-sharing, this setup presents an increased opportunity for engagement -- in addition to co-located booths, there will be panel discussions in the pavilion throughout the symposium.  [Read more]

Mobile apps offline: Chaos management and disconnected capability

When Internet networks crash during natural disasters or bandwidth becomes unavailable at crowded national special security events, analysts must be able to continue doing their jobs.
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s Geospatial Intelligence Advancement Testbed Mobile Apps Team has created a capability that allows analysts to continue sharing GEOINT data despite limited or no connectivity, said Ben Tuttle, Ph.D., mobile apps team lead.

The April 14 panel at the GEOINT Symposium, “Chaos Management in a Disconnected World,” highlighted how Tuttle and his team have worked with other analysts across the agency and throughout the GEOINT community to explore the legal issues, application governance, and emerging standards for mobile capabilities.  [Read more]

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.
