Provides Motion GEOINT research expertise in support of NSG ground efforts to integrate new motion imagery GEOINT capabilities into the NSG. Embedded in NGA Research efforts to support NTM-L GPMO, supporting research: concept design; studies; analysis of alternatives; requirements, algorithm and special product development; and, mission utility & use cases maturation for transition of R&D capabilities into ops. Investigates adaptation and adoption of commercial technologies, standards, and measures of effectiveness for processing high-volume Motion GEOINT data sets. Serves as a Motion GEOINT SME for the NTM-L project, with an in-depth understanding of current and emerging Motion GEOINT Standards, applications of video compression and motion tracking standards as applied to GEOINT data. Supports sensor modeling.
