This year marks major anniversaries for some of the most significant intelligence agencies that utilize and advance the concept of GEOINT. Last week, we highlighted how the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) marked its 50th anniversary. The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) recently celebrated its 15th anniversary and yesterday the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) made note of its 50-year legacy. Congratulations to all of these agencies for achieving these major milestones, advancing the mission and keeping our nation safe.
Just a reminder that we will be hearing about this and much more from key intelligence leaders at GEOINT 2011 next month. Speaking of keynote presenters, here’s the line up:
