Location Awareness for the Defense and Intelligence Communities

Location: Regency Ballroom

The Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, and the U.S. Intelligence Community are in urgent need of innovative ways to quickly query and display geospatially relevant data. With ongoing operations on every continent and in almost every country, America’s national security apparatus is awash in raw data, threat reporting, and vulnerability statistics. In most cases all relevant friendly and threat reporting cannot be recalled and overlaid swiftly enough to keep pace with operations on the ground. Overcoming the obstacles currently standing in the way of battlefield collaboration and visualization is quickly becoming a strategic imperative for America’s law enforcement, military and intelligence leaders.

The above is from a session to be run by Scary Secret G-Man at next weeks Where 2.0 Conference in San Jose. It always frightens me when I read what the government discloses about its projects because it makes the secret shit that much scarier!
