Topics to be Covered Include:

  • Modernizing GEOINT by applying big data computing and machine learning resources to introduce data points including classified and unclassified sources
  • Understanding the complications of working with unclassified data to ensure it hasn't been tampered from source to exploitation process
  • Collecting and creating operational-tactical imagery, elevation data, and geospatial information for mission success
  • Incorporating AI into the geospatial realm for increased automation and easier identification of targets
  • Ensuring that the combination of open source data and classified information is not aiding US enemies in producing a harmful counter-narrative to undermine the US forces
  • Expediting technology proliferation to build a network of predictive analytics and remain versatile in contested domains


Why Attend?

This educational Summit will enable the Intelligence Community, military intelligence organizations and industry partners to come together in a collaborative forum to encourage honest dialogue to address the technical vulnerabilities of the Intelligence Community focusing specifically on GEOINT.

In today's technological era, the IC has been seeing increased importance and reliance on the ability to harness and exploit open source data to enhance GEOINT. This forum will discuss the efforts to couple commercial open source data with classified information and how this combination enhances the quality of GEOINT brought to key decision-makers. The main objective of this year's discussion will be integrating this open source information and effectively exploiting it in a timely manner.

Overall, this summit will feature senior level discussions of the latest efforts by government agencies and organizations to utilize geospatial and open source data for critical missions. Such a dialogue in a non-attributed setting, will allow for solution providers and thought-leaders to join together in vital discussion regarding the advancements and progress of GEOINT resources and tools.


At our Summit You Will Have the Ability to

  • Gain Education & Insight: Walk away with knowledge gained from our senior level speakers on some of the complex challenges facing intelligence officers and analysts.
  • Build Partnerships: The agenda is designed to allow for ample networking opportunities and the ability to discover some the latest technologies helping process, exploit, and disseminate big data.
  • Influence: Help foster ideas! Share your own insight and knowledge during our interactive sessions. All attendees are given the opportunity to address our speaker faculty with their questions or comments and will receive a pre-summit questionnaire for precise questions and subject matters you would like our speakers to address.
