U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Robert Ashley, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, has said DIA looks to gather intelligence and information on emerging technologies across the ground, sea and air domains, DoD News reported Tuesday.

He noted during a question-and-answer portion at the Defense One Tech Summit held Tuesday that the agency aims to form analytic data teams as part of efforts to manage big data.

“How do we take a traditional analyst and link him up with a data scientist?”

Ashley added that he predicts activities in the space domain will grow over the next decade and believes military platforms can be used to interdict satellite systems in space and on the ground.

“The re-emergence of great power competition – Russia and China – you start seeing a closing gap in all domains, and they are being contested.”
