Empowering Military and National Security decision makers with Geospatial Intelligence to support operational excellence and complex mission success

The annual Geospatial Intelligence Middle East will return to Abu Dhabi for it’s 6th edition. Year on year the event has grown in stature and this year will be no different. With a renewed focus on military GeoInt challenges Geospatial Intelligence Middle East will examine how Geospatial Intelligence has become a crucial element of C4ISR and overall military strategy, implications for future national security strategies and how this all fits into an overall multi-agency geospatial strategy.

Recently the Military GIS and Intelligence communities have gained a better understanding of the incredible increase of “Cloud” empowered applications, the challenges and opportunities of Big Data, the importance of social media, the availability of improved applications, and the dramatic improvement in quality and availability of remote sensing data. This, and the increased speed of GIS applications and the integration of a full-motion video analysis product, empowers military forces and national security agencies to exploit and analyze full motion video from UAVs and other airborne vehicles.

Geospatial Intelligence Middle East 2013 is the ideal opportunity to review these advances and to evaluate the multitude of ways in which they can be utilized by all facets of government and military operations. The conference will be a powerful enabler for anyone looking to advance their own use of GIS and Geospatial Intelligence or looking for business development opportunities in the vitally important Middle East region in 2013 and beyond.
