NRO Starts Moving Spy Satellite Secrets To Open-Source Cloud

Posted by Henry Kenyon on


In a move toward a more efficient National Reconnaissance Office, analysts for the agency operating the nation’s spy satellites are on the verge of getting their information through a top-secret open-source cloud environment housing intelligence data.

Jill Singer, the agency’s chief information officer, offered the latest details on the project at this week’s Red Hat Government Symposium in Washington D.C.

Now in the second of a five-year Optimizing IT Strategy plan, NRO’s team recently moved to the top-secret, hybrid version of what began as a private classified cloud. It’s also part of the larger intelligence community’s cloud migration and data analytics efforts.
