Event Overview:

Announcing new speakers at Europe's leading meeting for the geospatial intelligence community

Would you be interested in hearing Maj Gen Jerry Thomas, Assistant Chief of Defence Staff, Intelligence, UK MoD talking about the current challenges and his vision of Multi-Int support to defence forces in-theatre and C2? Will you witness Bert Tiems, Chief C2 and Operations Services, C3 Agency, NATO giving you his latest ideas and vision for NATO's use of multi-int in-theatre across the world. Will you be asking, "Why didn't I think of that?" as Robert B. Murrett, the former head of the NGA and currently the Deputy Director of the Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism (INSCT) discusses the role and future impact of geo in the work of intelligence, with a special focus on current operations?

Or would you rather be stuck in the office, wondering where everyone is?

Military and government will be meeting at DGI 2012, where they'll be:

• Discovering what's changing - and what the future holds for GeoInt
• Learning new strategies and picking up new ideas
• Networking with the most senior people in the community

DGI 2012 will cover the current issues and challenges facing the Geoint industry.

Concerned about the impact and opportunity presented by online on-demand access to information?
Lt. Col. Babis Paraschou, Chief Geospatial Officer, NATO Deployment Corps, Greece will be talking about "Delivering The Right Intelligence To The Right User On Time: From Maps To Apps". This session is all about providing online on demand apps that will change the way your colleagues use geoint. See the latest apps that have been successfully used, question the solution providers and get new ideas for your organisation.

Curious about learning the secrets of successful intelligence at the Mi5?

As head of MI5 Dame Manningham-Buller has been privy to some of the country's most carefully guarded intelligence and held the lives of spies and double agents in her hands. MI5's performance is impossible without the detailed and timely GeoInt. Geospatial information has been and will always remain at the heart of intelligence work. Join this inspirational talk and question time to find out the details behiind MI5's work, its use of GeoInt and the most challenging and interesting cases from the past.

At DGI 2012 - the place where the geoint community meets every year - you'll hear and have the chance to discuss all these and many other matters.

Perhaps this comment encapsulates the benefits of DGI better than anyone else could:

"I have attended DGI for 5 years, and each year I get a lot of new strategies from users and new technologies from vendors"
