NGA’s 2020 Technology Strategy

Wednesday, June 10
1:00 – 2:00 PM EDT

Join us to discuss NGA’s 2020 Technology Strategy. Over the past few months we’ve examined the Technology Focus Areas – or the ‘what.’ In this session we will examine the ‘how’ NGA plans to accomplish the mission with future technology. This will require technologists who understand the mission and how GEOINT is evolving to meet the mission. Driving future mission requires that technologists are leading the GEOINT mission, not trying to catch up to it.

Panelists:

  • Moderator: Mark Munsell, Chief Technology Officer, NGA
  • Susan Kalweit, Director, Analysis Directorate, NGA
  • Alex Loehr, Deputy Chief Technology Officer, NGA
  • Umesh Singh, Ph.D., Chief Enterprise Architect, NGA

GEOINT From My Basement

Wednesday, June 17
1:00 – 2:00 PM EDT

Geospatial-intelligence is everywhere and essential to decision making in almost everything we do. In the 15+ years since its formal creation, it has continually matured, evolved, and expanded well beyond the national security sector, and well beyond government. Almost every vertical in our global economy is being disrupted by geospatial intelligence related technologies and services. This thriving geospatial intelligence ecosystem has enabled broad utility and inspired creative applications in myriad unclassified settings. These advances have come full circle to support unclassified work in the national security community which has been thrust into the spotlight with some urgency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Join us as we examine the increasing role of unclassified collection platforms and analytic capabilities to create decision advantage.

Panelists:

  • Moderator: Letitia A. Long, Board Member, USGIF and former Director, NGA
  • Terrence Busch, MARS Technical Lead, DIA
  • Victoria Nguyen, Head of Data & Analytics, SANTÉ
  • David Scavo, Solutions Engineering Manager, Orbital Insight
