What role does synthetic data play in the intersecting worlds of satellite data collection and artificial intelligence?’s CEO, Nathan Kundtz, recently participated in a panel discussion at the annual Space Capital Summit with Rachael Martin, the Maven Office Director at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), to discuss synthetic data for AI and other cutting-edge technologies. 

Watch the full conversation here.

Michael Sheetz of CNBC moderated this conversation on “Big (Geospatial) Data & AI” which revealed key insights into current technology challenges in the intelligence community, including: 

  • How necessary the introduction of AI is to distill value from billions of data points from satellite collection. 
  • That there is a significant lack of data available for important mission sets in geospatial intelligence. 
  • The need for new assets, like synthetic data, to support AI and advanced detection simulations that help identify the new ways that adversaries are concealing objects of interest.
