The United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) is reminding colleagues in academia, industry, and the defense and intelligence communities that October 1 is the deadline to submit nominations for the 2007 USGIF Awards Program. Award nomination forms for the Academic Achievement Award, Research Achievement Award, Government Achievement Award, Industry Achievement Award, and Military Achievement Award are available to download on the USGIF Web site.

Influential and innovative members of the geospatial intelligence community, as well as customers that have experienced exceptional services and solutions within the geospatial intelligence community, are asked to nominate deserving peers for the 2007 USGIF Awards Program. Those who have made outstanding contributions to the geospatial field will be recognized at the GEOINT 2007 Symposium Hall of Fame Dinner & Awards Banquet, held on the last night of the symposium, Wednesday, Oct. 24.

“The USGIF Awards Program highlights the important contributions professionals, companies and government agencies are making in the geospatial intelligence discipline,” said Stu Shea, USGIF president and chairman. “We believe it is vital to celebrate the accomplishments of those who further advance and promote our tradecraft and hope to bring broad visibility to this impressive body of work.”

The USGIF Awards Program includes three categories recognizing members of the geospatial intelligence community who have produced or participated in exceptional geospatial intelligence tradecraft activities. The Lifetime Achievement Award is presented, upon selection by the USGIF Board, to an influential member of the geospatial intelligence community for his or her extended commitment and dedication to the geospatial intelligence tradecraft. The Geospatial Academic Achievement Award commends the achievements of the top graduate of a nationally recognized geospatial intelligence academic program, as well as the organization or individual that demonstrates the top geospatial intelligence research program or project. The Geospatial Intelligence Achievement Award recognizes outstanding achievement in the tradecraft by an individual or team each from government, industry, and military sectors.

Collectively, these programs recognize the substantive achievements of a variety of individuals and organizations, from promising students to high-achieving corporate, government and military teams, and individuals who have demonstrated a lifetime of leadership in the geospatial intelligence field.
