GEOINT session on “human domain”

Check out this session from next week’s GEOINT (geographic intelligence) meetings in New Orleans:

Though we have entered an era of low intensity conflict characterized by population-centric operations, the U.S. national security community is still not organized to provide policymakers, commanders, warfighters and mission partners with a comprehensive grasp of human domain. Whether called human terrain, human geography, activity-based intelligence, etc., the GEOINT community has begun to take steps at organizing and analyzing cultural information geospatially, but to what extent is knowledge of the “human domain” intelligence? Or is it a basic form of “understanding” that forces must have in order to effective in expeditionary security operations? Learn about where we should be going during this session.

Participants Include:

• Christopher Tucker, Principal, Yale House Ventures
• Dr. Jerome E. (Jerry) Dobson
• LTC Al Di Leonardo, U.S. Army, U.S. Special Operations Command
• Douglas E. Weinstein, Policy Analyst, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence
