Welcome to NGA Industry Day 2014!

Information-sharing and partnering are essential for keeping our nation ahead of today’s complex security threats. To facilitate government-industry innovation, AFCEA Intelligence and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) are sponsoring a full-day classified event dedicated to identifying areas of possible collaboration and business opportunity to help enable and accelerate NGA’s strategic vision. The event will be held at NGA’s Springfield facility on June 19, 2014.

NGA Deputy Director Michael A. Rodrigue will kick off a series of panel discussions designed to provide industry representatives with insight into the agency’s strategic initiatives, which have been identified as enterprise priorities. These initiatives are aligned under five thematically focused portfolios matching the agency’s strategic goals and objectives. Representatives of the five portfolios will discuss the agency’s priorities, requirements and potential partnering opportunities. 

Throughout the event, specific emphasis will be placed on providing information so that companies can better: 

  • Understand NGA’s needs and challenges
  • Identify potential partnering opportunities
  • Structure research and development toward assisting with the agency’s priorities
  • Anticipate upcoming business opportunities to include future Requests for Proposal (RFP) and Requests for Information (RFI)


NGA’s Component Acquisition Executive, David Burns will provide closing remarks summarizing NGA acquisition trends.

We look forward to seeing you at NGA Industry Day 2014!
