DSI to hold GEOINT & Open Source Analytics Summit
Defense Strategies Institute (DSI) will hold the 3rd Annual GEOINT & Open Source Analytics Summit on September 18-19, 2018, at the Spire Events Center in Washington, D.C. This educational summit will bring members of the Intelligence Community, military intelligence organizations and industry partners together in a collaborative forum to discuss the current and future role of commercial providers and open source technology providers in the GEOINT landscape.
“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,” said Trina Chiodi, DSI program manager. “This forum will discuss the efforts to couple commercial open source data with classified information and how this combination improves the quality of GEOINT brought to key decision-makers.”
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.
