The New Guard: Letitia Long
Comments () | Published January 9, 2013

Letitia Long

Director, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency

For the first time, three major defense and intelligence agencies are headed by women. All three women have spent their careers in defense and intelligence and are accustomed to building, buying, and deploying expensive, high-end technology.

At the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, Letitia Long oversees the production of sophisticated maps and imagery for intelligence agencies and the military. (Using overhead imagery, NGA built a scale model of Osama bin Laden’s compound, which Navy SEALs used to plan the raid that killed him.)
