2014 Fed 100

Name: Letitia Long
Title: Director
Agency: National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency

Immersive intelligence.

The platform is the agency's backbone for geospatial efforts and the intelligence community's foundation for object-based production environments. Everything she does follows the theme of turning NGA from a static products producer to an indispensable provider of dynamic geo-intelligence content, analysis and services.
