Geointelligence Asia Pacific Forum
Co-located with GeoSmart Asia
GeoInt: Enhancing Combat Potential & Homeland Security
23 August 2017 Putrajaya International Convention Centre, Putrajaya, Malaysia

Introduction

GeoIntelligence Asia Pacific is the flagship conference of Geospatial Media for geospatial intelligence community in Asia Pacific. Started in Malaysia in 2015, the conference is fast expanding to reach out to national security and public safety agencies in South East Asia and Pacific. As the nations in Asia Pacific look at strengthening their military capabilities and readiness , geospatial intelligence will be the game changer in ensuring this transformation. By bringing together the experts from industry and academia, GeoIntelligence Asia Pacific provides an opportunity for geointelligence users to be updated with latest technology solutions in the field

Theme

GeoInt: Enhancing Combat Potential & Homeland Security

It is an established fact that Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence (C3I) play an important role in modern warfare. Effective C3I is only possible if intelligence is useful and actionable. Geospatial Intel¬ligence (GeoInt) lays the critical foundation of this intelligence as it involves 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 platform upon which other information is based. It is these capabilities that make GeoInt an effective and indispensable tool for enhancing combat potential and homeland security.

Programme Overview

FOCUS AREAS

Geospatial enabling Combat

Warfare is no longer confined to a defined battlefield in terms of time and location. Surprise is a key element of modern warfare. Threats can occur from anywhere at anytime. The need is thus to gather information about all such possible threats before the adversaries strike. This is possible only through 24x7 surveillance. The session will focus on advances in geospatial technology aiding modern surveillance, ensuring effective integration of all elements of a joint force and various solutions, techniques and implementation for enhancing effectiveness of combat identification.

Border & Maritime Security

Cross border infiltration, illegal smuggling of arms and drugs, human trafficking etc., are some of the major challenges that border security forces face everyday. GeoIntelligence aids in integrated technologies for enhanced border surveillance, meeting threats due to border infiltration and offers comprehensive solution to detect and to counter intrusion. Further, Asia Pacific nations have long and contested maritime boundaries. They depend on fish as food from the oceans. Trade is almost exclusively over the seas . Maritime and coastal security is pivotal for the economies of these nations. Geointelligence is essential to ensure this security.

Internal Security

Ensuring safety of its citizens, controlling crimes, tackling insurgency, and protecting critical infrastructure like airports, railways, roads etc., are some of the major chal¬lenges facing homeland and security agencies across the region. In such a scenario, the most critical requirement for operational commanders and ground forces is actionable insights and real time data. Changing nature of threats require an up-to-the-minute situational awareness. Spatial information has a critical role to play in this process, as it provides an insight into the relationship between statistics, demographics, political boundaries and other influencing factors. It also is a powerful tool to visualize patterns in disrupting incidents like where and when they most often occur, helping forces to prioritize and position their resources.

GeoInt Enablers

Geospatial technology is finding applications in practically every field of human activity, in areas like robotics, unmanned systems, 3D printing, big data analytics, human terrain analysis etc. A plethora of hi-tech sensors are making online, on-demand information a reality. Digital maps are being developed as applications to ensure mobile availability of geospatial information to entire lifecycle of security – from planning to execution. A number of geospatial technology trends and solutions are emerging that are putting the all-important actionable information in the hands of security personnel.
