Geospatial Intelligence Mission Management

A session at Geospatial Intelligence Middle East

As the importance of geospatial intelligence continues to grow across national security, protecting civil infrastructure, local government, managing natural resources and disasters, monitoring climate change, military operations, and carrying out counter terrorism operations, the amount of remote sensing data (space based, air breathing, crowd sourcing, social media, handheld imagery and other sources of data) available is also growing exponentially. This increase in the amount of data available, coupled with the demand for increased product accuracy, necessity to share information amongst allies and multiple stakeholders, demand for decrease in causalities, more complex training requirements, speed of dissemination of end products and the demand for actionable intelligence means that an advanced management system is required.

This presentation will evaluate the following:

Outlining the drivers and the concept of Geospatial Mission Management
Detailing the elements of the Mission Management system including, the identification and verification of requirements, understanding all the collections system available and how to task each to use their strengths in the most effective manner, tasking the analysis, storing and retrieving the data and producing and disseminating the final geospatial product
Utilising this dynamic Mission Management system to deliver the best products on time and on target
