Earth Intelligence 2020 will address the challenges and requirements needed to maintain the IC and DoD’s global leadership in geospatial intelligence. As the world continues its shift toward great power competition, the need to develop and adopt emerging technologies and advanced solutions will be required to maintain U.S. prosperity and security. This challenge will require the government to work with commercial partners and stakeholders in order to sustain its competitive advantage and move with the velocity needed to meet its goals.
