November 1- 2, 2023 | Sunset Room, National Harbor, MD

DSI’s 6th GEOINT Innovation Summit aims to highlight the crucial role of Geospatial Intelligence in ensuring the national security of the United States. By leveraging advanced geospatial data acquisition, analysis, and visualization techniques, GEOINT enables government agencies to gain valuable insights into various threats and challenges. It provides a comprehensive understanding of the global operating environment, including monitoring potential adversaries, securing borders, managing natural disasters, and protecting critical infrastructure. GEOINT empowers decision-makers with actionable information for effective planning, response, and mitigation strategies.

Why You Should Attend This Summit:

This year’s Summit will provide a forum for Government and Industry leaders to convene and discuss the latest developments projects and partnerships concerning GEOINT. NGA, in partnership with other agencies and private industry, has undertaken initiatives to enhance geospatial data collection and analysis capabilities. Collaborations between intelligence agencies have resulted in the development of advanced GEOINT systems and tools, enabling comprehensive intelligence fusion and analysis through the leveraging of AI and ML. Further, the Summit will provide the opportunity for senior government leaders to address challenges linked to GEOINT developments such as protection against cyber and terrorist threats.

The USG and DoD have been heavily involved in special programming around the use of GEOINT within defense and intelligence, climate and disaster resilience, as well as space and sensors. There is a growing push for national spending and geospatial data’s impact on the economy and an amendment to the Geospatial Data Act would close gaps in the original legislation and push the nation closer to a shared infrastructure for the collection and use of geospatial data.

DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summits' content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in geospatial intelligence across the federal government and military. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
