The GEOINT Symposium is the preeminent event of the year for the defence, intelligence and homeland security communities. The annual GEOINT Symposium is hosted by the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) which is the only organization dedicated to promoting the geospatial intelligence tradecraft and building a stronger GEOINT Community across industry, academia, government, professional organizations and individual stakeholders.
e-GEOS staff will be happy to meet you and introduce to COSMO-SkyMed and its capabilities along with its latest achievements at booth no. 2085
In particular e-GEOS will be displaying some of COSMO-SkyMed Applications for Defence&Intelligence: the frequent revisit of the constellation, when coupled with the very high resolution (Spotlight mode) opens a completely new area of applications for defense & intelligence applications. Very accurate change detection in and around sensitive targets (industrial plants, borders) can be completed with unprecedented time revisit and area coverage. Multi-satellite interferometric configuration allows for coherence analysis (activity maps and disturbed terrain analysis). e-GEOS will show the following applications:
- Site monitoring
- Mining activity monitoring
- Detailed change maps
- Border, dirt-road and track surveillance
- Monitoring activity, a central challenge to governments and security agencies.
The COSMO-SkyMed programme is the result of an agreement between the Italian Space Agency (ASI), the Italian defence ministry and MIUR (the Italian industry for education, universities and research). e-GEOS, a joint venture between ASI (20%) and Telespazio (80%) exclusively sells COSMO-SkyMed data and products around the world.
Looking forward to meeting you at GEOINT 2014
