... 2010, Letitia Long (right) was named the next director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency by U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates. At the time she was the deputy director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. She had 3 decades of engineering and intelligence experience, serving in other positions including deputy director of Naval Intelligence and coordinator of intelligence community activities at the Central Intelligence Agency. Upon taking over at National Geospatial last August, Long became the "the first woman to be a leader at a major intelligence agency" in the United States.
