FP Virtual Dialogue: Using Space-Based Technology for Eyes on the Ground
How satellite imagery can help manage risk and navigate volatile environments
Foreign Policy, in partnership with Maxar, convened a leading-edge conversation to highlight the growing importance of satellite technologies in volatile environments where lack of infrastructure can limit intelligence gathering and situational awareness. We’ll explore how the ability to have “eyes on the ground” in the form of geospatial images can provide vital, actionable insights to decision makers across the defense, intel and humanitarian sectors.
Experts illuminated how satellite imagery is enabling early detection of unrest or other destabilizing events that may put critical infrastructure, assets or local populations at risk.
- What is the role of geospatial imaging in mission planning before putting boots on the ground?
- How is satellite imagery being leveraged to monitor security concerns around climate change and how it can be used for planning and mitigation efforts?
- How is satellite imagery supporting the work of humanitarian organizations to help rapidly identify the nature and scope of disasters, more effectively target responses and deploy aid?
