The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency is pleased to announce an Industry Outreach Day to be hosted at NGA Campus East in Springfield VA, Tuesday, 30 April, 2013 from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM. NGA’s Online GEOINT Services and Information Technology Directorates will host this event. This Industry Outreach Day is intended to complement the Industry Outreach Day previously held on 27 September, 2012, as well as the recently posted Request-for-Information on NGA GEOINT App Store and Application Operations Services. This Industry Outreach Day will include an overview of the NGA GEOINT App Store and set the scene for a compelling discussion on NGA’s emerging App (mobile / web / widget) compensation model, specifically called the AOS. NGA is enthusiastic about the innovation taking place in the commercial mobile / web app sector and its potential to revolutionize mobile GEOINT support to NGA’s customers. We want your help to put NGA on the cutting edge of some of today’s most exciting technology and to assist us in delivering that technology across the Department of Defense, and the Intelligence, Civil, Emergency Management, Response, and Recovery Communities. We see this as a tremendous opportunity for industry, small business, and academia to partner with NGA, and we look forward to your participation at this exciting event.
