Description
Summary: The Geospatial Intelligence Imagery Analyst conducts geospatial intelligence analysis. Geospatial intelligence analysis involves identifying, analyzing and reporting targets observed on imagery from satellite and airborne systems. Besides analyzing standard optical imagery, the analyst will also learn the theory and application involved in analyzing radar, infrared, and spectral imagery and geospatial data. Intelligence derived by the geospatial intelligence imagery analyst is critical for mission success at the national, theater and tactical levels. Utilize global satellite communication networks to support geospatial intelligence. MOS duties are not defined in terms of rank or pay grade, but by levels. Credit is recommended for levels 30 and 40. Skill Level 30: Able to perform the duties of the 10 and 20 levels. Perform duties shown in preceding skill level to include supervising motion imagery missions and managing exploitation requirements. Exploits spectral and polarmetric imagery and produces Advanced Geospatial Intelligence products. Support Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) operations. Skill Level 40: Able to perform the duties required for Skill Level 30; performs duties shown in preceding skill levels and manages the tasking, production exploitation and dissemination of imagery and geospatial intelligence. Perform duties as the ISR manager.

ACE occupation reviews are conducted by faculty currently teaching at appropriately accredited colleges and universities. Faculty teams analyze the official occupation standards and validate the duties and requirements through service member interviews to determine if the content, scope, and rigor of the experiential learning align to current postsecondary curricula. A minimum of 3 faculty evaluators must achieve consensus on credit recommendations. Please see Faculty Evaluators - Home Page for more information.
