What does it mean to be a member of the U.S. government’s Open Source GEOINT community in the 21st century? How do we leverage the potential of on site, 24-7 coverage of our world? How do we build out and manage the storehouse of Open Source GEOINT knowledge resident in our forward deployments? These are some of the questions this panel will tackle. Building our future has already begun.

Participants Include:
• Dr. Barry Zulauf, Former Deputy Chief, Office of National Security Intelligence Adjunct Professor of Criminal Justice, Michigan State University Adjunct Professor of Intelligence, Mercyhurst College

Maritime Domain Awareness is defined in the National Strategy for Maritime Security as the effective understanding of anything associated with the maritime domain that could impact the security, safety, economy or environment. Within this session leaders in this national community will discuss the impacts of GEOINT on the collection, fusion, analysis and distribution of information – what are the challenges, the risks and the successes? How do we plan for the future? The decisions of today impact not only our security, but also our international partners as well as many industries world-wide.

GEOINT Insight and Influence through Functional Management — Introductory Keynote - Admiral William O. Studeman, U.S. Navy (Ret.), Consultant, Northrop Grumman Corp. (2:30p - 4:30p, Room 265)

Building on the highly successful GEOINT 2009 panel on Functional Management and the National System for Geospatial Intelligence (NSG), this year’s panel seeks to illustrate how Functional Management provides a transparent environment for GEOINT operations. The NSG is a large entity encompassing intelligence, military, industry, civil, academia and international partners. Functional Management allows these members and partners greater understanding of the GEOINT discipline across the entire spectrum, not just in their agency or region, thereby influencing its development and application. This panel will illustrate how functional management drives efficiencies within the international partnerships and the Allied System for Geospatial Intelligence (ASG) and the creation of Service Geospatial Elements (SGEs) help coordinate GEOINT across the military services.

Participants include:
• Moderator – Paul R. Weise, Director, Office of Geospatial Intelligence Management, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
• Diane (Di) Harris, Assistant Secretary Capabilities and Systems, Department of Defence, Australia
• Geoff Holmes, Director GEOINT, Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB), New Zealand
