Lunchtime Workshop: GEOINT Support for Crisis Management - Operational Experience, Development Strategy , and Cooperation Perspective for International Actors (12:30p - 2:00a, Room 204)

GEOINT has become an essential support tool for crisis management in the
global arena. This international panel, chaired by the European Union Satellite
Centre (EUSC), will discuss operational experience, strategic lessons-learned
and the necessary institutional framework for effective cooperation involving
such high-profile GEOINT organizations as the National Geospatial-Intelligence
Agency (NGA), the Intelligence Fusion Centre (IFC, tbc) and the United Nations
Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO, tbc). The different missions of
these key actors, their individual success stories and key leverage points, as
well as their views on strategies to meet future challenges are presented. The
panelists will discuss the increasing relevance of close and trustful cooperation
for effective support to international missions and operations, and the special
importance of clear legal frameworks as a necessary precondition. Examples
for multilateral coordination of workload and data sharing will be presented. In
this context, international cooperation will be addressed as a not only possible,
but in fact necessary to overcome the ever-increasing demand for GEOINT
services, as well as a possible answer to the constraining effects of budgetary
limitations on operational effectiveness.
