Hosted by the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF), the GEOINT 2013* Symposium brings defense, intelligence and homeland security communities together.  During the symposium, Rob Zitz, Leidos senior vice president and chief systems architect, will address the topic "Small Satellite and Associated TPED" during Lightning Talks and Lunch on April 14, at 11:00 a.m. Zitz will also serve as moderator during the sessions "GEOINT Foreword: SmallSat Remote Sensing Innovations" on April 14, at 2:15 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. He is also among a panel of experts for the GEOINT Certification Roundtable discussion during the event.

Leidos demonstrations at GEOINT 2013* include:

C2 Solutions:

    --  Advanced Geospatial Framework, a multi-intelligence framework that
        delivers Big Data to analysts through a standard web browser using
        existing communications infrastructure. This seamlessly integrates
        multiple sensor types into a consistent thin-client environment where
        users can search for all available data types over any geographical
        region over any time period.
    --  Geospatial Content Management Solutions, a commercial off-the-shelf
        (COTS) solution incorporating advanced capabilities for archival,
        discovery, retrieval, and dissemination of geospatial intelligence
        (GEOINT) and imagery, this content management capability combines
        geospatial data management with a browser-based search interface. It is
        flexible and scalable, and contains enhanced functionality to support
        GEOINT and imagery products as analyst needs evolve.

Geospatial Intelligence Solutions

    --  GEOINT data and solutions - cutting-edge solutions in integration,
        conflation, harmonization, and automation provide access to the most
        current and accurate GEOINT foundation data. Advances in commercial
        imagery, open source, and commodity data enable Leidos to provide
        companies and organizations across a wide-spectrum of industries with
        the high quality data and products that were once only available to the
        defense and intelligence communities. Leidos offers products in as
        little as 20 percent of the time and at one-third the cost of comparable
        industry-standard production. Our GEOINT data production solutions have
        captured the globe, providing actionable intelligence that is
        accessible, scalable, and cost effective.
    --  Global Monitoring and Planning Service (GLMPS) predictive algorithms
        maximize situational awareness and readiness by providing lead time to
        prioritize likely mission and operational requirements, coordinate with
        stakeholders, and conduct stabilizing operations in a dynamic world.
        Leveraging machine learning, data mining and a historical database of
        Geospatial and Cultural Indicators initial tests of GLMPS demonstrate
        greater than 75 percent accuracy in identifying locations of likely
        instability. Data mining discovers unseen relationships between
        potential indicators and databases of instability metrics and events.
        Algorithms are developed and validated using historical data and applied
        to predict location and timing of a range of likely future instability
        events. Trend analysis, tipping and queuing are enabled through analysis
        of at least 30 environmental, political, social, and economic datasets,
        and custom metrics characterizing temporal rates of change.
    --  AIMES, a next-generation full-motion video (FMV) imagery exploitation
        tool delivered to customers that enable motion imagery, geospatial data,
        snapshots, and mass of associated data in near real-time, helping to
        reduce analyst workload and speed the provision of intelligence to
        decision-makers. The FMV has been a solution of choice for several
        customers including Air Force Distributed Common Ground/Surface Systems
        (AF-DCGS) and Distributed Common Ground Army (DCGS-A).
    --  GeoRover(®) and GRGlobe. GeoRover® products provide powerful tools for
        Esri® ArcGIS® for desktop designed to increase speed, efficiency, and
        productivity in common geographic information system (GIS) workflows
        including one application available for Android™ mobile devices
        (tablets or phones). The GRGlobe™ application brings enhanced GIS
        capabilities to the Google Earth™ globe providing the ability to
        create, edit, and visualize GIS data natively while supporting multiple
        formats such as KML, shapefile, and geodatabase.
    --  ISR CrossCue (IXQ), an automated collaboration tool that allows
        warfighters and analysts to rapidly discover and connect with critically
        needed expertise across the intelligence community. Warfighters and
        analysts use dynamically-created, secure collaboration rooms to discuss
        their objective or problem set, with the capability to post files and
        links in addition to text. IXQ provides analysts and tactical customers
        with an unparalleled ability to rapidly discover and leverage subject
        matter expertise.
    --  HR3DGI (High Resolution Three Dimensional Geospatial Information), the
        collection, processing, and dissemination of extremely high resolution
        terrain foundation data that is critical to the execution of
        humanitarian, disaster relief, tactical, and special operations
        missions. It consists of multiple collection systems that have supported
        numerous operations over the last 10 years on multiple manned and
        unmanned airborne platforms.
    --  IBISS (Integrated Building Interior Surveillance System) provides
        building interior situational awareness (layout, location and movement
        of occupants) prior to mission engagement. It collects through wall
        radar data using a combination of drive-by and airborne assets and
        processes it to reconstruct the 3-D interior structure of buildings and
        track dismounts moving inside them. The output 3-D Building Situation
        Model (BSM) can be used for pre-mission rehearsal and planning as well
        in-mission support.
    --  CMIS (The CUTS MASINT Integrated Display) collects, integrates and
        displays multiple See Through The Wall (STTW) sensors to create complete
        presentation of all of the information for the interior and exterior of
        the structure of interest.

Cyber Solution:

    --  Secure Mobile Framework for Android - Using the secure Android™
        framework, employers can protect sensitive corporate information and
        process it safely on their employees' Android mobile phones and tablets.
        By implementing this secure framework, users can transmit data securely,
        toggle between encrypted and non-encrypted mobile environments, download
        applications, and work productively from any location to include the
        office, home or field communicating through various transmission
        mediums, such as cellular, Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth®, and the Internet.
    --  Deep Dynamic Attribution Management (DDAM) - Provides an overview of
        Leidos's DDAM system, which allows a user to manage online attribution
        by rapidly or adaptively changing apparent identity, location, and/or
