"We have some very impressive collection systems and very impressive processing technology, but it’s really our personnel who provide NGA with its strategic advantage.”

The end of the Cold War marked the dawn of a new era in global security. It brought with it a time of tumultuous change in the U.S. intelligence community. September 11th further prompted the U.S. to rethink national security and reevaluate its approach to the collection, analysis, and dissemination of intelligence. It led to calls for enhancing U.S. imagery and geospatial capabilities. The catalysts for such an effort began with a radical shift in the threat environment, the evolving nature of conflict, and the revolutionary technologies of the digital age. Led by Vice Admiral Robert Murrett, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) continues to play an integral role in U.S. national security.
