* Optimising the use of GEOINT
and OSINT in support to Maritime Operations.
The SFAB G-2 GEOINT
advisors suggested Google Earth as the best possible solution to fulfill their needs for a common operational picture.
Joint Publication 2-03, Geospatial Intelligence Support in Joint Operations, defines GEOINT
as "the exploitation and analysis of imagery and geospatial information to describe, assess, and visually depict physical features and geographically referenced activities on the earth." The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) provides GEOINT
analysis, products, data, and services at the national level.
The differentiator is persistence; the value in GEOINT
lies in it being continually updated and informed by a range of imagery and mapping sources.
According to a White House Press Secretary official report, "In the three days prior to the attack, we collected streams of HUMINT, SIGINT and GEOINT
that reveal regime activities that we assess were associated with preparations for a chemical weapons attack." (10) This reported shortfall raises troublesome questions for the analytical integration capabilities of the IC and provides a hypothetical backdrop from which to develop an ABI tradecraft workflow template applying its four pillars and main enablers.
The revision will recognize the successes that military intelligence and engineering have achieved in GEOINT
and address identified gaps in doctrine, organization, training, materiel, leadership and education, personnel, and facilities.
The proper use of GEOINT
in pre-deployment preparation can pay dividends that will be realized throughout a combat tour.
It is a not-for-profit educational foundation dedicated to promoting the geospatial intelligence tradecraft and building a stronger GEOINT
Community across industry, academia, government, professional organizations and individual stakeholders.
DigitalGlobe's standard web services enable rapid dissemination of the latest NextView-licensed imagery of specified areas to the National System for Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT
) within 24 hours of collection.
Geospatial Intelligence Foundation decided to reschedule its GEOINT
2010 Symposium, which drew 3,300 attendees last year, to New Orleans.
The tool also allows for the input of data layers, including physical, socio-cultural, economic, demographic and GEOINT
factors from a variety of sources including ArcSDE.
