U.S. Commercial Remote Sensing Industry Leaders Gather at Premiere Forum, December 1 & 2, 2003, Washington, DC.

Press Release From: Strategic Research Institute
Posted: Thursday, September 25, 2003

Strategic Research Institute presents the U.S. Commercial Remote Sensing Industry Conference, December 1 & 2, 2003, in Washington, D.C. (www.srinstitute.com/CG101). This forum will analyze current and future opportunities and explore key issues within the U.S. commercial remote sensing industry, including its relationship to system and technology partners and value-added product and service providers.

Like the new U.S. commercial remote sensing policy, this conference intends to provide a discussion about the new framework for remote sensing decisions, and a forum in which to create additional relationships between government and industry decision-makers who are looking to understand the new opportunities and challenges of commercial remote sensing. The presentations and panels aspire to generate valuable discussion on a myriad of business discussions related to the future of U.S. commercial remote sensing. Remote Sensing company decision makers are invited to interact with representatives from NASA, NOAA, NIMA, USGS, USDA, and other federal agencies during this business-focused and information-rich, networking event. Chaired by Kevin O'Connell, Director, Intelligence Policy Center, RAND Corporation. Keynote presentations include a White House perspective and NIMA's government initiatives to promote the growing relationship between Federal Government and the U.S. Commercial Remote Sensing Industry.
