Past event: GEOINT Innovation Summit

Fueling the GEOINT Revolution to Enhance National Security

Our 5th GEOINT Innovation Summit will bring together members of the intelligence community, DOD, federal government, academia, and industry to discuss ways to accelerate innovation to fuel the GEOINT revolution. In an era of strategic competition, this event will explore how geospatial intelligence has become increasingly vital to delivering the intelligence advantage to decision-makers, warfighters, and intelligence leaders across the military and government.

Please Note: This is a FVEY-ONLY event

Topics to be covered at the 2022 Summit:

  • Driving Digital Transformation and GEOINT Capabilities to Fortify National Security
  • NGA's Role in Leading a GEOINT Revolution to Secure U.S. National Interests
  • Boosting Shared GEOINT to Revolutionize How We See and Understand the World
  • Guiding Research to Develop Tools and Technologies to Harness Intelligence
  • Leveraging GEOINT as a Critical Enabler to the Counterterrorism Enterprise

Why You Should Attend This Summit:

We are at an inflection point in earth observation and location intelligence. As we enter an era of strategic competition, our 5th Annual GEOINT Innovation Summit will discuss how geospatial intelligence has become increasingly vital to securing the intelligence advantage over adversaries to enable decision dominance for government, defense, and policy leaders.

This year's event will explore opportunities to integrate emerging technologies such as AI and ML to automate and speed up the collection and exploitation of geospatial data to deliver immediate insights, understanding, decision, and action. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from and ask questions to senior leadership on the needs and challenges for advancing geospatial intelligence capabilities and moving the community forward. Join us at this year's event to network with and hear from geospatial intelligence leaders from across the IC, DOD, government, industry, and academia on the technology priority areas and commercial GEOINT strategies for maximizing the GEOINT advantage.

Our team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summits' content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in geospatial intelligence across the federal government and military. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
