GEOINT 2022 Symposium Address

I want to extend a special thank you to Vice Admiral Sharp. I think this is your last GEOINT Symposium as NGA Director, and the National Counterterrorism Center and NGA have enjoyed a really strong partnership over the years, ever since our founding nearly 18 years ago, and you’ve always been a great champion of the CT community. So thank you for all that you do, we appreciate it. Thank you also to the GEOINT community for inviting me to this great event. I’ve had some time to wander the booths and see what is out there and it’s mind blowing, even as somebody that hasn’t been a government employee my entire life, for a short stint, it’s really remarkable to see where the technology is going and how much value it’s going to add to us as policymakers, as intelligence professionals – it’s incredible.
