The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) has released its 2021 Data Strategy in which the agency outlines plans to transform and improve the way data is created, managed, and shared to maintain dominance in the delivery of geospatial intelligence (GEOINT).
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is looking at unclassified data sources to broaden its understanding of climate change – an issue that one NGA official said this week will become a primary agency focus going forward.
David Luber, Executive Director and third highest ranking official at U.S. Cyber Command, said today it is vital for intelligence agencies to embark on “data fusion” efforts that will create interoperability of data and data-handling systems between agencies.
Kari Bingen, Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence, said today that the Defense Department’s (DoD) rapid progress on Project Maven relies on use of agile development principles, and help from the private sector on DevOps software development practices that combine software development and IT operations to shorten development lifecycles.
Gen. Matt Easley, director of the U.S. Army Artificial Intelligence Task Force within the Army Futures Command, said Tuesday that the service is looking to geospatial intelligence and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies that can “cast the fog of war” on adversaries.
Lisa Porter, Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering, had a lot of good things to say about the promise of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies at the GEOINT Symposium on Tuesday, with one important caveat: AI isn’t ready for prime time in Department of Defense (DoD) critical applications, and likely won’t be for some time.
Susan Gordon, Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence, on Tuesday called for the development of data-sharing frameworks that will improve risk-data sharing between Federal government intelligence agencies and the private sector, as both cooperate to improve security strategies and tactics in a hyper-connected world.
National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) tech leaders touted the agency’s successful efforts to hire more data professionals and software engineers into the agency’s ranks, saying that the infusion of new expertise is helping NGA make better decisions about the capabilities it wants to develop.
The rapid growth in IT and its applications for Federal agencies have similarly expanded the roles of chief information officers, whose operations now extend to nearly every realm of agency activity.
Vice Admiral Robert Sharp, director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), said today that modernizing the agency’s IT infrastructure and hastening the adoption of automation and artificial intelligence technologies are key pillars of NGA’s “Mission Tomorrow” objectives that the agency has set out in its 2025 strategy.
