This conference, the fourth of six for 2003 addressing C4ISR, will profile the Administration’s public/private partnership to exploit commercial remote-sensing imagery and derivative products.

The U.S. intelligence community says it wants to stimulate – as quickly as possible – and maintain – for the foreseeable future – “a robust commercial space imagery industry.” This spring, the National Security Council released the President’s National Security Policy Decision directive to cover commercial remote sensing from space for a number of Federal departments and agencies.

Come to this timely Defense Week conference and hear briefings on geo-spatial requirements and opportunities from the:

* National Security Council
* National Imagery & Mapping Agency
* National Reconnaissance Office
* National Aeronautical & Space Agency
* National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration
* U.S. Geological Survey
* Department of Agriculture
* Federal Emergency Management Agency
And Others....

Among the key partnership endeavors is NIMA’s five-year business plan of action to promote commercial imagery to meet the geo-spatial product needs of the U.S. military as well as civilian agencies and the private sector.

Learn how NIMA and its customers have defined their unclassified medium-to-low resolution imagery requirements. Find out what are the latest inter-agency and dual-use applications for disaster management, agriculture, land management, oil and gas exploration, utilities and telecommunications, among others.

Discover the expanding business opportunities for such imaging equipment and services as digital camera systems and sensor arrays, image data compression and geographical information system (GIS) software. Learn what NIMA proposes to outsource and how its procedures and structure will integrate commercial imagery into national assets.

Find out how the civilian agencies are coordinating their commercial remote sensing requirements assessment.

If you are an IT/C4ISR professional, whether in R&D or business development working requirements, managing programs or providing systems and services to the government or military – or competing for contracts – this latest Defense Week conference is a must attend.
