Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) October 14, 2009
Innovative Analytics & Training LLC (Innovative Analytics), a privately-held company that helps organizations make better decisions by integrating diverse information sources with advanced analytic methods, announced that it hired Robert Allen Weber to help broaden its existing work in the policy, security and market aspects of remote sensing, geospatial and navigation technologies. Weber's arrival will coincide with the announcement of a new IAT service offering in research and analysis related to global earth observations and transparency.
"We are very pleased to have Bob join Innovative Analytics' team because of his extensive experience in global remote sensing and geospatial developments," said Chief Executive Kevin O'Connell. "His strong analytic background will allow us to expand upon our past and current work in these areas within Innovative Analytics. Bob's creative approach to understanding commercial and government motivations, market developments and international policy, and regulatory developments for technologies like remote sensing, navigation and geographic information systems, among others, will provide our clients a strategic perspective to optimize their role in the market. On a more personal note, Bob's arrival will allow us to continue to explore the security and market dynamics of the transparency concept that we helped introduce almost a decade ago."
Weber is a former intelligence community executive with 35 years of experience as an analyst, staff officer, manager and negotiator of foreign agreements. He is an expert in the use of commercial and classified satellite imagery to achieve U.S. intelligence, defense and policy goals. Weber began work in 1975 as an imagery analyst at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). After 25 years with the CIA, he spent ten years at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. Some of his accomplishments include advancing geospatial intelligence cooperation with key U.S. allies, and forging geospatial intelligence classification, control and sharing policies such as national rules that govern use of commercial imagery. Weber has a bachelor's degree in geography from the University of Minnesota and a master's degree in government from Georgetown University. In 2007, he received the National Intelligence Distinguished Service Medal, the U.S. Intelligence Community's highest award.
