The symposium spotlights aspects of geospatial intelligence, which gains information from the analysis of imagery and other geographic data. The United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation’s event draws attendees from industry, government and academia. 

Joining Doucette on the May 7 “Landsat 2030 Initiative: Nurturing Global Partnerships for Earth Observation Excellence” panel will be Mike Egan, Program Executive for the Earth Science Division of the Science Mission Directorate at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA); Tom Renkevens, Chief of the Satellite Products and Services Division of the Office of Satellite and Product Operations at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA); and Alison Rose, Chief of the Space Division at Geoscience Australia.

The international collaboration focuses on the upcoming Landsat Next satellite mission with advanced capabilities to help inform land and resource use. The panel will highlight mission objectives, innovations involved, global benefits to sectors ranging from agriculture to disaster response, and the relevance of the 52-year-old program’s legacy today.

“The GEOINT symposium provides USGS and EROS an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the utility of Landsat to support growing national and environmental security needs for a global community,” Doucette said.
