20 September 1998: Add note from anonymous on classification:
SI = Special / Secret Intelligence TK is a codeword classification, standing for Talent Keyhole, meaning IMINT. TS/SI/TK is often used as a blanket "entry level clearance" for conferences, etc., as it is one of the most carefully controlled and restricted. Much of the context of the AFCEA meets have nothing to do with IMINT whatsoever.

In session two, the focal point will shift to what is being done by OSD/C3I and the national-level agencies to provide the organization, policy, and coordination to satisfy JV 2010 requirements. The third session will examine the work being done by the Service battle labs to develop and test new and visionary technologies that can provide information superiority. The final session will explore the future of information technology and the investments strategies likely to support it. This program has been designed to provide Intelligence professionals with the continuing education they need to stay current in their profession and to facilitate dialogue between and among the Intelligence Community components and Industry.

In these presentations, the role intelligence plays in supporting information superiority will be emphasized. Session Chairman: Col Jeffrey R. Hackman, USAF (Ret.), Senior Manager, Special Programs, Sprint. SESSION TWO: "OSD/C3I and the National Agencies: The Achievement of Information Superiority."
