NGA to hold Maven Industry Day 2024

On February 22, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) announced plans for the Maven Industry Day. Registration is first come, first served, and will close as soon as it reaches capacity.

Maven seeks to better understand the commercial AI/ML supply chain. The business environment presents a number of challenges to those concerned with SCRM as new technologies, teaming partners, and vendors are constantly changing at an increasingly fast rate. SCRM mapping and analysis, mapping and monitoring helps Maven understand the prime and sub business entities and individuals in their vendors’ supply chains, the supply chain’s scalability to support growing sustainment needs, and potential risks. Further, AI/ML supply chain illumination enables the identification of opportunities, vulnerabilities, and systemic dependencies that are crucial to assessing AI/ML vendor health and making sound, secure prototype and acquisition decisions.

Maven relies heavily on commercial AI companies to include startups financed by venture capitalists. Maven seeks insight into the Supply Chain risks of AI, because there is often limited visibility into the prime vendors and the sub-tier suppliers that provide critical components and personnel. A “Tier” shall be defined as an entity supplying a service or product to a customer. Maven desires the capability to better understand the risks presented by key components and organizations in the Maven Supply Chain that could impact the overall program security, cost, schedule, and performance.

Maven needs quick-turn open-source, unclassified reporting system that allows NGA to share information of concern with the vendor and the Government without possible inadvertent disclosure of vendor proprietary information. This platform will also be available as a repository for mission reporting and information sharing about high and critical threats within agency’s supply chain.
