DNI Open Source Conference

I have been asked to advertise the fact that the Office of the DNI will be hosting an open source conference on 11 and 12 September this year. This is basically a way for intelligence consumers to discover a lot of the open source intelligence sources that are available, and learn how to effectively employ them. The event is open to the public provided you register in advance, and is obviously of great benefit to intelligence consumers in both academic and professional career fields. Anyone interested in attending must register by 31 July. Registration has to be done online at the link provided below.

Download a fact sheet on the conference here.

Visit the DNI's Open Source Conference 2008 website to register.

For an idea of the kinds of information on offer, you can view the presentations made at the 2007 conference at the following link: 2007 DNI Conference Sessions

Certainly sounds like a very interesting event. Unfortunately I won't be able to attend this year because of professional obligations, but this is something I'll definitely keep my eye out for in the future!

Being PMU-1 variants, they use the baseline 150 km range 48N6E missile.
