1 Know the Earth…Show the Way NATIONAL GEOSPATIAL-INTELLIGENCE AGENCY Approved for Public Release/ 05-116 Overcoming the Challenges of Systems Engineering at NGA INCOSE Washington Metro Area Meeting 8 March 2005 INCOSE Washington Metro Area Meeting 8 March 2005 Dr. Thomas Holzer Technical Executive Acquisition Engineering Office

2 NATIONAL GEOSPATIAL-INTELLIGENCE AGENCY Know the Earth…Show the Way INCOSE Washington Metro Area Meeting 8 March 2005 Approved for Public Release/ 05-116 2 Our Mission NGA provides geospatial intelligence – imagery, imagery intelligence, and geospatial data and information – for planning, decision-making and action in support of national security.

3 NATIONAL GEOSPATIAL-INTELLIGENCE AGENCY Know the Earth…Show the Way INCOSE Washington Metro Area Meeting 8 March 2005 Approved for Public Release/ 05-116 3 Background NGA is a Combat and Intelligence Support Agency –We serve many masters Secretary of Defense Director of National Intelligence Director of Central Intelligence Acquisition workforce does not come from an acquisition culture A lot of challenges being successfully overcome NGA has been improving SE and Acquisition Management overall since Jan 2000

4 NATIONAL GEOSPATIAL-INTELLIGENCE AGENCY Know the Earth…Show the Way INCOSE Washington Metro Area Meeting 8 March 2005 Approved for Public Release/ 05-116 4 Disclaimer NGA continues to accomplish great things despite the challenges of doing systems engineering in a non-acquisition management culture. This presentation is not a critique of NGAs systems engineering capabilities This presentation is a review of how NGA is overcoming the challenges in a complex environment
