Mission Focus: GEOINT at the Speed of Need

3–6 pm, Aug. 24

BAE Systems Inc. Headquarters
2941 Fairview Park Drive
10th Floor Conference Center
Falls Church, VA

Free, in-person event

Observe, Orient, Decide, Act: John Boyd’s classic “OODA” loop concept holds that in conflict, whichever party can "get inside" the opponent's decision cycle timeline can gain the advantage. The timely delivery of GEOINT analytic products to the point of need is a key element of decision advantage. Join us as we examine how the community is finding innovative ways to automate significant portions of imagery exploitation and reporting workflows.

This Mission Focus event will include an operational leadership perspective on ongoing initiatives and existing challenges that impact timelines for delivery of GEOINT analysis, as well as insights from GEOINT community leaders working to deliver the innovative technologies and workflows that will ensure users of GEOINT analytic products and services have actionable information at the speed of their need.
