Closing Keynote: Putting the Power of GEOINT in Your Hands

September 13th, 2011

3:15 pm - 4:15 pm

Letitia Long

Director

National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency

As the nation's premier source of geospatial intelligence (GEOINT), the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), which is both a Department of Defense combat support agency and a member of the U.S. Intelligence Community, develops geospatial intelligence capabilities in support of U.S. national defense, disaster relief and intelligence objectives.

To meet the 21st century challenges the nation faces today, NGA is working to provide the nation's warfighters, intelligence community and first responders with the tools they need to meet those challenges head on. To do this, NGA is focused on fundamentally changing the way it develops and provides geospatial intelligence to it users. This GEOINT Vision focuses on two principal, near-term goals to put the power of GEOINT in the hands of users: 1) Providing online, on-demand access to NGA's GEOINT knowledge and 2) creating new value by broadening and deepening NGA's analytic expertise.

Hear from Director Letitia Long about NGA's mission and the GEOINT Vision in the conference's closing keynote address.
