There’s a conference in Washington, DC, in March that explores technologies for intelligence and terrorism prevention.
The 4th Annual Government Convention on Emerging Technologies will focus on the impact of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act signed into law by President Bush in December 2004.
The departments and agencies of the National Security Community are currently engaged in the most comprehensive transformation of policy, structure, doctrine, and capabilities since the National Security Act of 1947.
Many of the legal, policy, organizational, and cultural challenges to manage the National Security Community as an enterprise and provide a framework for fielding new capabilities are being addressed. However, there are many emerging technologies and commercial best practices available to help the National Security Community achieve its critical mission of keeping America safe and secure.
There’s a lot of interesting stuff on the agenda, including some classified sessions. I’m especially interested in this track:
Track Two: Attaining Tailored Persistence
Explore the technologies required to attain persistent surveillance and tailored persistence.
What does “persistent surveillance” mean, anyway?
