that connecting these businesses with each other and various agencies within the military, private industry, and intelligence sectors can accelerate technological advances and
increase the quality of intelligence that we are able to secure
from available signals.
As Kinga has attended AOC meetings over the years, she has
seen many missed opportunities for information sharing that
could reduce research spending and expanded information collection. By fostering collaboration over pure competition, we
can see beyond our silos of specialty and begin building a tradition of circulating information beyond the usual networking
opportunities at our annual gatherings.
AOC has been generous to allow her company to offer
this message during AOC presentations, and now she would
like to do more than talk about the gaps in information.
Instead of waiting for someone else to fix the problem,
Kinga would like to start creating strategies that can benefit all AOC members.
