Lt. Gen. Laura Potter, deputy Army chief of staff for intelligence, will speak March 10 at a webinar hosted by the Association of the U.S. Army.

Potter will discuss the vision and way ahead for the Army intelligence enterprise.

The event, part of The AUSA Noon Report webinar series, begins at noon Eastern. It is free, but registration is required here.

Potter, who became the Army G-2 last fall, previously commanded the U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence and Fort Huachuca, Arizona.

She has said that the Army is taking to space as it works to expand “the depth and breadth” of its ability to deliver intelligence quickly and accurately to troops on the battlefield.

Speaking in October at AUSA Now, the association’s virtual annual meeting, Potter talked about the Army’s plans to better use tactical space assets to help deliver intelligence with greater speed, precision and accuracy.

Part of the effort is the establishment of the Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Task Force, which works with Army Futures Command to “shape requirements for an Army ISR framework that can leverage organic collection systems and access to data from national, joint and coalition partner collectors,” Potter said.

“In this pursuit, the space domain offers the greatest potential to expand the depth and breadth of multidomain intelligence,” she said. “Our vision for the space domain is to ensure the Army can leverage the entirety of space-based ISR to allow our commanders, tactical to strategic, to see first, understand first, decide first and act first. We will reduce the decision cycle from minutes to seconds, providing a distinct advantage over our adversaries.”
