SESSION ONE: TECHNICAL COLLECTION AS AN EMERGING DISCIPLINE

Session one will examine technical collection as an emerging discipline gaining prominence on the battlefield and in preventing surprise across an ever-widening range of difficult challenges.  This specialty spans the spectrum from signatures collection and analysis (MASINT) to the increasingly important field of biometrics as intelligence entities increasingly are called upon to establish the identities and intentions of individuals who might wish to do harm.  Session speakers will examine the requirements and opportunities for collaboration at the intersection of science, analysis, field operations, and development in this growing intelligence discipline.

 

Focus Questions

  • What is the state-of-play for MASINT as a discipline and technical collection as a capability within the Defense Intelligence Enterprise?
  • What is the future of biometrics as an emerging signatures program and where can industry make its greatest contribution in this area?
  • What are the priorities, unrealized opportunities and greatest technical challenges in making technical collection operational to meet the requirements today and into the future?
