AGO’s intelligence officers research, analyse and report on a country or region or a specific thematic international issue to meet the requirements of customers ranging from government leaders to tactical users.
AGO’s intelligence officers also work on a distinctive technical focus. As the exploitation of imagery is a key AGO activity, they place great importance on maintaining and developing their capability to use new technologies in areas such as remote sensing. Their intelligence officers liaise closely with Defence Science and Technology Group, national research organisations, academia and industry to help AGO make the most of emerging technologies.
AGO also have several large-scale Defence projects that must be delivered over the next few years as part of continual capability development programs and the introduction of new technology.
AGO’s intelligence officers have a wide variety of specialist skills and knowledge including geographic information systems (GIS), information technology (IT), scripting and applications development, web services, design and functionality, database management and analysis and remote sensing in several disciplines, including radar, spectral and infrared. Their intelligence officers research and apply advanced techniques, and develop and transition valuable technology into operational applications or provide high-end technical support to analysts.
AGO’s graduates undertake training throughout the 12 month graduate program through internal and vendor-based training courses.
