Geospatial Intelligence for National Security (GINS) APAC 2015 Conference

The growth of national security threats has triggered agencies to further enhance their intelligence and develop a common operating picture to overcome challenges for disaster management, defense and intelligence and maritime and border security.

Due to the severity of threats including piracy, illegal fishing, legal immigrants, disasters, and the recent ISIS threat, it is vital that government agencies utilize GEOINT to enhance national security.

The key measure of this overall capability is a new generation of tools for advanced digital mapping and development, which concurrently extends the application of Geospatial Intelligence beyond C2 (Command and Control) and the achievement of information superiority. Last month, VisionGain released a market research report stating that GEOINT is no longer considered to be a ‘nice to have’, but a ‘must have’ capability, revealing that global governmental expenditure worth on GEOINT for national security and defense in 2014 was $9.7billion.

The 8th year of our summit focuses on enhancing national security operations using geospatial intelligence. Our extensive research with more than 50 government authorities reflects a shift of focus in the market towards national security as the paramount concern
