Descartes Labs Government to Present in GEOINT Tradecraft Competition and Host Two Workshops on Autonomous Target Sensing Using ALL-INT Data Fusion at GEOINT 2022

By Eric Van Rees - 12th April 2022 - 06:50

Descartes Labs, a solutions provider of geospatial intelligence originating out of Los Alamos National Laboratory, government subsidiary, Descartes Labs Government, will present in the GEOINT Tradecraft Competition and host a two-part training workshop at GEOINT 2022 in Colorado.

Open to all GEOINT attendees, the Tradecraft Competition will be held on the Main Stage at 9:45 am on Tues., April 26, with the winner determined by audience vote. Also on April 26, the workshop sessions require advance registration and will instruct attendees how to apply machine learning (ML)-based analytics and multimodal ALL-INT data fusion techniques on a cloud platform for autonomous detection and visualization of targets across the integrated battlespace at a planetary scale – powered by Descartes Labs.

Competition Details

Dr. Shawana Johnson, Chief Science Officer for Descartes Labs Government, Inc., will present Global 5G Chinese Domination: Reducing the Communication Network ‘Attack Surface’ Universally in the Innovative Tradecraft Competition at 9:45 - 10:30 am April 26 where she will introduce unique ways to secure network data with a DOD network partner, SCATR, while providing GEOINT precise analytics with open-source data.

The Competition is sponsored by the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) and Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) for members to demonstrate innovative GEOINT solutions addressing mission problems through visualization, discovering needles in needle stacks, data sharing, and interoperability.

The winning Tradecraft solution will be determined by audience vote, and the winner will be announced by 12:45 pm that day as well.

Workshop Details

The two-part workshop is designed for anyone in the geospatial data science and analytics pipeline – from managers and team leaders to algorithm modelers and analysts. These sessions are open to students and will include discussions of ALL-INT career pathways for GEOINT workforce development.

Registration for each session is required (with a small USGIF small attendance fee). Participants should attend both workshops due to the sequential organization of the presentations and bring laptops to Session 2.

Session 1 – Tuesday, April 26, 7:30-8:30 am (Workshop ID #143)

“Autonomous Sensing of Targets with ALL-INT Fusion Capabilities for Immediate Workforce Engagement”

Session 2 – Tuesday, April 26, 2:00-3:00 pm (Workshop ID #153)

“Hands-On Guided Training for Autonomous Sensing of Targets with ALL-INT Fusion Basics on a Planetary-Scale Cloud-Based Platform”

In the era of expanding 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies in which attack surfaces have greatly expanded, GEOINT professionals face the challenge of tracking threats across an integrated battlespace. Producing actionable information in this environment requires fusion and analysis of ALL-INT data sets - optical and SAR satellite imagery, as well as SATCOM data.
