NGA Celebrates the 100th Anniversary of the First 
Broadcast of a Navigational Warning

Aug. 19, 2007, marks the 100th anniversary of the nation’s first radio broadcast of a navigational warning to ships at sea. For the past century, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and its predecessor organizations have provided navigational safety support to U.S. Navy and commercial ships around the world, thus preventing accidents that would have led to the loss of lives and property.


2007 NSG Strategic Intent

Director’s Message

This 2007 Statement of Strategic Intent describes our vision, goals and objectives for the next five years for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and the National System for Geospatial Intelligence. It has been helped considerably by input from throughout NGA and the Community. Integration and collaboration across the community is our pathway to success. GEOINT plays a critical role in virtually every Intelligence Community and Department of Defense mission; we will not fail to partner as closely as possible with our counterpart agencies and ensure that GEOINT is effectively utilized whenever and wherever it is needed...

...The goals and objectives presented in this Statement of Strategic Intent fully align with priorities of both the Director of National Intelligence’s National Intelligence Strategy and the Secretary of Defense’s Defense Intelligence Guidance. It emphasizes that we must focus outward and increase our operational tempo, for we are a nation at war. As such, we will support our partners with a heightened sense of urgency as a unified GEOINT community...

Statement of Strategic Intent Updated

The NSG is the combination of technology, policies, capabilities, doctrine, activities, people, data and communities necessary to produce GEOINT in an integrated multi-intelligence, multi-domain environment. The NSG community consists of members and partners. Members include the IC, Joint Staff, military departments (to include the services), and combatant commands. NSG partners include the National Applications Office, Civil Applications Committee members, international partners, industry, academia, defense service providers and civil community service providers.

NGA is a Department of Defense combat support agency and a member of the National Intelligence Community. The Agency’s mission is to provide timely, relevant and accurate geospatial intelligence in support of our national security. The term “geospatial intelligence” means the exploitation and analysis of imagery and geospatial information to describe, assess and visually depict physical features and geographically referenced activities on the Earth. Geospatial intelligence consists of imagery, imagery intelligence and geospatial (e.g., mapping, charting and geodesy) information.
