India: Geospatial Media & Communications, the media organisation working towards promotion of the geospatial technology in various areas of development, has announced that General Bikram Singh, Chief of Army Staff, Indian Army, will inaugurate GeoIntelligence India 2014 and deliver the inaugural address. GeoIntelligence India is the premier conference dedicated to the highest level of information exchange and networking within the Indian defence and internal security sector. It brings to the fore the perspectives and requirements of the decision makers who directly influence national security policy and procedures.
The theme of this year’s conference is Geoint Enhancing Combat Potential. Geospatial Intelligence (GeoInt) involves the amalgamation of all types of intelligence, like location intelligence, imagery intelligence, communications intelligence, signal intelligence and human intelligence. Geospatial technology is also vital for facilitating multi-source information sharing and integration across agencies and organisations by providing a common framework upon which other information is based. It is these capabilities that make GeoInt an effective and indispensable tool for enhancing combat potential. The conference will bring together luminaries from the defence and the internal security sectors to deliberate upon and demonstrate the critical role of geospatial technology in national security.
Lt Gen AKSChandele, (Retd), Managing Editor-GeoIntelligence and Advisor Conferences, Geospatial Media, said, “The importance of geointelligence in modern warfare cannot be over emphasised. It is a battle winning factor."
The conference will be held on June 12-13, 2014, at JW Marriott, Aerocity, New Delhi. The conference will also feature alongside a state-of-the-art exhibition where leading technology companies will showcase their cutting edge geospatial solutions for defence and internal security.
