The United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) invites you to its NRO Application Service Provider (NASP) Industry Advisory Working Group (IAWG) kickoff meeting Tuesday, Sept. 23, from 3 to 5 p.m.

The government is in the process of defining the NASP operating model, technical architecture, and how and what it will procure. To jump-start the dialogue and form a coherent industry voice, USGIF has formed the NASP IAWG. The mission of the working group is to assist the NRO in achieving its transformation objectives and to provide insights from an industry-partner perspective.

The working group will provide a collaborative, vendor/integrator-agnostic venue that is strategic and objective, offer options and tradeoffs, and emphasize speed and pragmatism over research.

This meeting takes place at USGIF, 2325 Dulles Corner Boulevard, Suite 450, Herndon, Virginia, 20171. Please email any questions to carrie.drake@usgif.org
