MOS Description and Mission

The Geospatial Intelligence Specialist is an entry level primary MOS. Geospatial Intelligence Specialists collect, analyze, and process geophysical data and geographic information to aid in the production of geospatial intelligence products. Geospatial intelligence products are derived from manipulating geospatial information by collecting, synthesizing, querying, validating and analyzing geospatial information in a database. Intelligence products are further intensified by the collection, analysis, and processing of geophysical data. Equipment utilized includes survey and mapping instrumentation such as the theodolites, electronic and satellite positioning equipment, and microcomputer based mapping equipment. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are used for analysis of geographic information and remotely sensed imagery (RSI).
