Why should you attend the Summit?
Today, the Intelligence Community, DOD, DIA, Military Services and LEA must accelerate the development and fielding of initiatives focused on full-spectrum media exploitation by optimizing the collection, triage, analysis, processing, and dissemination capabilities in support of current operations to achieve greater automation of intelligence and data. To this end, the center of gravity will be to identify parts of the intelligence cycle that are best suited for automation in order to deliver time-sensitive, and relevant intelligence in an most efficient and effective manner possible.
The National Security Agency, National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, National Reconnaissance Office, CIA and the National Media Exploitation Center currently rely on automated search tools to examine information and their intelligence databases to identify potentially valuable information. These analytical tools and best practices must be rapidly adopted and implemented across the entire ISR community in order to relieve analysts of the enormous amounts of data that must be analyzed, to answer priority intelligence requirements, and to meet current budget requirements.
DSI’s team specializes in extensive research to develop our Summits' content and focus areas. We assemble the most respected minds in human and technical intelligence analysis within the ISR community – from key civilian and military policy-makers to operational commanders. Our non-partisan approach allows DSI to successfully bridge political and bureaucratic divides, and assemble a truly holistic group of value-added decision makers and solution providers.
