GEOINT and Open Source Analytics Summit

The GEOINT and Open Source Analytics Summit allows US military commands, government agencies, academia, and technology providers the opportunity to have an in-depth conversation about the future of open-source technologies in the GEOINT landscape. The summit seeks to find solutions to the challenges promoted by the integration of open-source geospatial imagery with classified sources in order to provide the IC with the highest quality GEOINT data available.

New Topics for This Year's Summit

  • NGA's efforts to utilize innovative capabilities developed and deployed by the private sector
  • Leveraging open source analytics to support Multi-INT and activity based intelligence
  • Current status of pilot projects and base programs designed to use publicly available information for GEOINT missions
  • How an ''analysis as a service'' business model would support government analysts
  • Technical challenges associated with real-time ingest, correlation, enrichment, security and use of open sources as either stand-alone architecture or as a fully integrated architecture
  • Innovation and creativity in GEOINT for DoD
  • The growing role of automation in GEOINT and open sources analysis
  • How big data and deep learning solutions can lead to anticipatory intelligence
  • How the commercial small satellite revolution supports the future GEOINT strategy
  • Policy and security necessary to realize integrated GEOINT and open sources workflow
  • Enhancing homeland security through open source intelligence collection, analysis and sharing


Why Attend?

This educational summit enables the Intelligence Community, military intelligence organizations and the private sector to come together to address the latest efforts to improve the quality, availability, and analysis of geospatial and open source intelligence.

Open and commercially sourced data have proven their value and intelligence agencies are moving quickly to take advantage of new imagery sources. The challenge is integrating this information into existing streams and exploiting it in an effective and timely manner. Establishing a strategy and framework for the collection and analysis of this diverse set of data streams will be a key priority for the IC.

This summit will feature senior level discussions on the latest efforts by government agencies and organizations to utilize geospatial and open source data to support a wide variety of mission sets. The applications of this data are many and this year's summit will seek to highlight efforts towards the accomplishment of wide-ranging IC goals.

We encourage you to explore our site more, give us a call if you have any questions, and we hope to welcome you in September!
