Geospatial Intelligence Analysts exploit imagery, imagery products (including Advanced Geospatial Intelligence) and geographic products and data to create intelligence solutions for the Warfighter and senior government officials.
Queries, assesses, integrates, manipulates, exploits, extracts, and analyzes digital data and imagery (full spectrum literal and non-literal), both geospatial and research databases, and various ancillary sources. Completes data analysis and evaluation, geospatial data reformat and conversion, and photo interpretation. Performs application engineering development; processes digital imagery; customizes product generation; researches and gathers information; performs customer information analysis. Translates GEOINT requirements into appropriate requests for imagery or queries using all available imaging sensors or GEOINT data bases. Interacts with professional colleagues to communicate research mission, issues, and geospatial requirements. Downloads web-based data and prepare/process for exploitation. Performs intelligence analysis on multiple sources of data, including Electro-Optical (EO), Spectral, Thermal Infrared (TIR), Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI), Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), Overhead Persistent Infrared (OPIR), and map-based software. Performs data fusion by combining various types of data (EO, TIR, SAR, etc. ) to create a product with an increased level of understanding of the targeted area than can be achieved with a single data source.
