The United States is in a competition with China on multiple fronts: economics, technology, geography, politics, and military power. A major battleground between the two countries is in the field of information. Both sides are racing to gain an advantage in how they acquire, disseminate and exploit information. One of the most important classes of information is geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) which focuses on geography and human activities. GEOINT is increasingly central to the activities of governments, companies, non-governmental organizations, and militaries. That makes it unbelievably valuable. If the United States is going to compete successfully against China and other nations seeking advantage in the GEOINT domain, it must have a secure GEOINT information supply chain. I have written more on this subject here.
