The U.S. Department of Defense Needs New Tools
A consistent, operational need exists across the Department of Defense. Forward-deployed warfighters need timely GEOINT results to enhance mission readiness and execution. However, data collection and analysis are currently theater-level or CONUS capabilities that end-users cannot rapidly task. Sending local data away from the Point of Decision creates a gap in timeliness and insight that unnecessarily hinders rapid, effective decision-making.
