“His advice will be incredibly helpful as we increase our support in these communities and build the 3D geospatial platform to deploy on the ground in real world missions and national security operations,” Cozzi added.
Cardillo, a public servant for 35 years, recently was the sixth director of NGA and worked to build stronger relationships with the commercial geospatial industry. His career in public service includes working as the first deputy director for intelligence integration in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, where he delivered the President’s Daily Briefing.
Additionally, Cardillo served at the Defense Intelligence Agency as deputy director and deputy director for analysis.
