Job Overview


About the Agency

JOB DESCRIPTION: GEOINT Analysts (Photogrammetric Image Science) apply advanced techniques to measure the precise dimensions or relative size of objects on imagery. This includes monoscopic, stereoscopic, overhead, handheld, or video imagery. They develop mensuration strategies, determine requirements, evaluate tools, and create customized methodologies and products to address a variety of geospatial intelligence problems.

DEVELOPMENTAL ASSIGNMENT: Some positions advertised are Band 2 Developmental Positions and part of the NGA Developmental Program (DP). Positions in the DP will be hired with starting base salaries ranging from $38,387 to $48,995. Employees in the DP program will be evaluated annually to determine if they meet performance and proficiency requirements. If requirements are met, DP employees will be eligible for an annual DP increase to support progression through the entry/developmental pay band. Upon meeting all performance and proficiency requirements the employee is eligible to be promoted to Band 3 and will be graduated from the DP program.


ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: The Office of Sciences and Methodologies provides timely, relevant, and crucial Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) science solutions for combat support and national intelligence missions. The office enables the integration of advanced sensor phenomenology, leverages new technologies, and develops new techniques and methodologies to enable the deepening and broadening of analytical expertise. Photogrammetrists provide precise and accurate mensuration using a variety of image sources. Applicants should have a basic understanding of satellite, tactical, and close range ground imaging systems. Applicants should have foundational knowledge and the application of photogrammetric principles to the mensuration of objects using imagery. The applicant should be cognizant of image processing systems, electronic light tables, geographic information systems, and related applications; be familiar with national imagery, commercial, civil and tactical and ground image sources; be familiar with basic mensuration tools and techniques; be able to develop and implement new work processes; and may serve as the technical representative to various community working groups.
