Emerging technology is enabling more sophisticated and persistent collection capability. Wide Area Airborne Surveillance (WAAS) systems such as ARGUS are providing increasingly larger areas of coverage with higher resolution through improvements in focal plane array technologies that are enabling high definition Full Motion Video (FMV) for Electro-Optical (EO) as well as Infrared (IR) sensors. Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) sensors continue to improve with scalable capability like the Multi-Platform Radar Technology Insertion Program (MP-RTIP).

Lunchtime Roundtable: Serving the Needs of the NSG in the Unclassified Domain, a Strategic Perspective — Moderator: Richard Williams, Director, GEOINT Community Governance Division, Office of Geospatial Intelligence Management, NGA (12:30p - 2:30p, Room 275)

The need for GEOINT support in the unclassified domain has grown significantly for both domestic and international mission partners. The community has not uniformly responded to this growth and does not employ best practices and struggles to operate across multiple security domains.

An analysis of the need for unclassified GEOINT support across the geospatial community, within the context of GEOINT functional management, will identify opportunities and issues associated with operations in this domain. Integration of disparate efforts will net efficiencies and provide a broader partner base for the continued maturation of the community’s ability to serve in this arena.

Warfighter Feedback — Moderator: Mr. John A. Marshall, Chief Technology Officer, Intelligence Directorate, United States Joint Forces Command (2:30p - 4:30p, Room 278)

The Defense Intelligence Information Enterprise (DI2E) is intended to enable interoperability and information sharing across a Defense Intelligence Enterprise (DIE), including military intelligence and command and control elements, Combat Support Agencies (CSA), the intelligence community, and interagency and multinational partners throughout the range of military operations from tactical to strategic levels. This session will focus on the panel member’s recent warfighter experiences, the need and importance of having the ability to seamlessly share information, and the potential capabilities a DI2E, built on a common framework, would provide the warfighter.

Commercial SAR Familiarization Training (2:30p - 4:30p, Room 274)

Commercial Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) provides tremendous opportunities for the defense, intelligence and civil communities. In this workshop, SAR experts from NGA and commercial providers will present an overview tutorial about the SAR imaging process and natural coherence of radar illumination, providing the general SAR user with an understanding of how SAR produces images and how sophisticated products such as elevation models, subsidence maps or change detection applications are generated. Attendees will also be given a combined overview of the three commercial SAR systems – COSMO-SkyMed, TerraSAR-X and RADARSAT – along with general knowledge of acquisition modes and associated applications. Finally, a representative from NGA will describe how members of the NSG access this data through NGA’s contract vehicle.
