This research service examines the U.S. defense geospatial market from 2011 to 2017. The market has grown as new tools and technologies have been developed through real-world operations. Afghanistan and Iraq have provided problem sets driving innovation and development of better geospatial tools and services. Geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) has matured into its own specialty, creating many analysis variables from human terrain to sensor/radar development. The commercial geospatial market is propagating these events and delivering technologies to mobile users in numerous industries quicker and more efficiently. As the defense geospatial market expands, planners will look toward commercial solutions to meet operational requirements.
