NGA Unveils New Geospatial Research Office in Reorg, Focus Shift

NGA-logoThe National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency has established a new internal organization that will serve to support geospatial research among national laboratories, commercial businesses and universities as part of an NGA-wide restructuring initiative.

NGA started the new office to advance the agency’s research activities and provide other agencies in the intelligence community access to new technologies and other offerings, Director Robert Cardillo said in a release posted Friday.

The “NGA Research” office will replace the former InnoVision directorate in the current fiscal year and represents a shift from internal research efforts to a strategy that looks at external work for potential application at the agency.

In addition, former Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity Director Peter Highnam has joined NGA in a leadership role to help with its establishment of the In-Q-Tel Interface Center, the GEOINT Pathfinder 2 project and a new NGA Outpost Valley in California’s Silicon Valley.
