Paper Abstract

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is faced with the difficult task of extracting geospatial intelligence information on complex, time-sensitive targets from a growing volume of images. Neuroscience promises to provide basic research findings that could translate into tools, training, and procedures capable of enhancing the current analysts' performance and productivity, as well as leading toward tools for automated image analysis. The Neuroscience-Enabled Geospatial Intelligence (NEGI) advanced research program has been developed to identify useful neuroscience research results and guide translational neuroscience research to provide a new generation of geospatial analysis tools. In addition, the capability of current models of the human vision system to perform basic geospatial analysis tasks has been assessed, with encouraging results.
