The U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) has issued this information message for the GEOINT 2012 conference:
About 4,000 people from US and foreign intelligence agencies and representatives from the commercial industries that support them will engage in the GEOINT 2012 Symposium October 8-11 at the Gaylord Palms. This symposium theme is “Creating the Innovation Advantage.”
The focus of the event is geospatial-intelligence -- which is the exploitation of satellite or airborne images, fused with other intelligence and geospatial information like mapping, charting and geodesy, to help warfighters and national decision makers visualize what they need to know. In English, this conference centers on the intelligence capabilities that form the eyes of the nation, e.g. finding Bin Laden.
All events and more than 250 exhibits are open to registered media at no cost. The most modern imaging equipment and software capabilities will be on display along with technologies that help make sense of all the data. Think electronic and visual displays straight from the future and lots of opportunities for interviews and great visuals.
Speakers include the Director of National Intelligence, the Director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, the incoming Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, the Director of the National Security Agency, the Chair of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and others in a range of keynote addresses and panels.
