Collaboration Improves Intelligence

Murrett Discusses Commercial/Government Cooperation

Collaboration Improves Intelligence Featured Strategic Space Symposium speaker Vice Adm. Robert B. Murrett, director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, said that many levels of collaboration - interagency, commercial/government, and international - have improved his agency's ability to support operational needs. He credited much of the advancement to arrangements with both commercial and international space providers that increase capacity and improve flexibility and adaptability.

In outlining critical success factors for geospatial intelligence, Murrett named six objectives:

  • Balance warfight and critical long-term mission requirements
  • Move to an integrated, sensor-neutral architecture
  • Expand intelligence community, Department of Defense, and industry engagement
  • Retain and deepen workforce expertise
  • Accelerate forward-based geospatial-intelligence with community partners
  • Sustain consistent research and development investment to include space capabilities
