George Clooney's Satellite Sentinel Project to be Featured at Suits n' Spooks DC

Time magazine recently ran a story about how George Clooney and John Predergast of the Enough Project decided to raise money to set up a private satellite spy network to focus on the atrocities being committed in Sudan. The program has been so successful that the International Criminal Court is bringing charges against a Sudanese government official. This is an example of the kind of disruptive thinking that Suits and Spooks 2012 in Washington DC is looking for. Fortunately, Jonathan Huston, the Communications director of Enough has agreed to speak about how the project works. He's given similar talks to the U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation.

Suits and Spooks 2012 isn't a passive conference. Both attendees and speakers will be interacting the entire day to produce innovative and disruptive ideas that relate to creating a new security framework to address the new and rapidly expanding threat landscape created as the physical and virtual worlds continue to become interwoven with each other. The ideas of both speakers and attendees will be captured in real-time in a Palantir workspace with live analysis being done and projected onto a screen behind the speakers. A final report will be released summarizing the day's findings.

You can be a part of this revolutionary experience by registering today. We offer a special rate for students and academics as well as government employees, and an early bird discount will run for everyone until January 6, 2012.
