As tensions in the Middle East continue to run high and national security remains of paramount importance to the region’s governments, having access to geographic information systems and accurate, real-time intelligence has never been more important.
This conference addresses how the applications of geospatial intelligence and geospatial technology can enhance a nation’s protection against internal and external threats to it’s population, economy and critical infrastructure. This protection may be against natural disasters, accidental disasters and intentional attacks.
This is the region’s only dedicated defence and security focused geospatial intelligence
summit that addresses the most pressing issues faced by the geospatial intelligence community today. With exclusive case studies from global leaders in intelligence exploitation this event tackles interoperability and integration head-on.
