Why You Should Attend This Summit:

We are at an inflection point in earth observation and location intelligence. As we enter an era of strategic competition, DSI’s 5th Annual GEOINT Innovation Summit will discuss how geospatial intelligence has become increasingly vital to securing the intelligence advantage over adversaries to enable decision dominance for government, defense, and policy leaders.

This year’s event will explore opportunities to integrate emerging technologies such as AI and ML to automate and speed up the collection and exploitation of geospatial data to deliver immediate insights, understanding, decision, and action. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from and ask questions to senior leadership on the needs and challenges for advancing geospatial intelligence capabilities and moving the community forward. Join us at this year’s event to network with and hear from geospatial intelligence leaders from across the IC, DOD, government, industry, and academia on the technology priority areas and commercial GEOINT strategies for maximizing the GEOINT advantage.

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.

Operating Guidance for Government Attendees:

DSI’s Symposium directly supports DoD, DHS, Law Enforcement and public-sector priorities by providing a conduit for officials to efficiently reach audiences outside of their respective offices that directly impact their department’s mission success, at no charge to the government, and in an efficient expenditure of time.

DSI’s Summit will provide a forum to address and improve internal and external initiatives, meet with and hear from partner organizations, disseminate vital capability requirements to industry, increase visibility within the larger community, and generally support their mission.

The Summit is open and complimentary to all DoD and Federal Government employees and is considered an educational and training forum.
